comment Yeast overdose?
You can't stop fermentation by putting a lid on the jug. That would just (potentially) explode the jug. But if you just let it go a few days after putting the lid on you might be okay.

comment Yeast overdose?
The packets of EC-1118 I've had are, I would guess, about 1 teaspoon. If you used one of those, it doesn't seem like much, event for a small amount of juice like 2 liters. You'll soon know how it turned out, but I wouldn't do anything to try to "fix" it now. I'm not sure how you're planning to package it, but normally you have to let something ferment until it is done, rather than an arbitrary time period like "a week".

comment What is it about this receipe that makes it an IPA? Or more generally, what makes an IPA?
1:1 BU:GU? BJCP's "American IPA" min OG is 1.056 and min IBU is 40, so that suggests a min BU:GU of around .71.

We need John Palmer to answer this question about aluminum, and also tell us what he thinks about doing it to stainless steel. Looks very nice!

comment What does skunked beer taste like, How would you describe skunked beer?
I think you should the shed the "I'd rather not ruin a beer to find out" way of thinking. Live it up a little for the sake of learning more about beer! :-) It's a very cheap and reliable way to understand this off flavor/aroma. Cheers!
