comment Using avocado in beer?
I really liked this answer! You could also use avocado in a weizen, so that haze is not much of a concern and you only need to remove the oil.

comment First Time Brewing…am I doing it right?
I really liked the part about good batches smelling funny. The batch I'm conditioning now in my secondary is a tripel, whose yeast during fermentation produced sulfur, thus smelling really bad. If I didn't know this will clear up after a while I may had already thrown the batch away. Patience is a great virtue in homebrewing after all.

Most probably there is some live yeast that can populate and ferment your batch. However, while this happens, the yeast produces many off-flavours. I think you should pitch another pack of yeast in the fermenter, after all, even if your beer is slightly overpitched then (which I doubt), it is certainly better than underpitched, you'll most probably end up with a pretty good batch.

comment What's the ideal size for a mash tun?
Now I can see it too, when I posted this question for some reason the chart wouldn't appear, not even when I used the direct link. Thanks for the answer anyway! I have one additional question though: if I use a 10 gallon mash tun for 5 gallon batches, wouldn't I have more heat loss because of the air trapped in the mash tun, and, thus, worse insulation?
