comment Ported carboy vs. siphoning?
The spigot for the port is very easy to remove. I remove it after every batch, clean it, and allow all parts to dry. I'll sanitize and reassemble just before adding the next batch of wort.

comment My keg is empty. Now what?
I also leave the kegs under a touch of pressure; that way I know if any of the seals are bad when I come back, and I know nothing has gotten in. Otherwise, I agree: keep the kegs cleaned and ready to go.

comment What are the easiest and hardest commercial beer bottles to re-use for homebrew?
I fill a tub with OxyClean and left it sit overnight. Nearly all the labels come right off, with a few needing a gentle wipe to get the goo off. I do need to rinse, however.

comment Early vs Late secondary fermentation
What I mean is that I view the risk (in general) of more equipment coming in contact with the beer to be greater than the risk of autolysis.

I've seen that episode. That's where I got the 1 pepper-per-gallon guideline.
