comment How to keep your head on an oatmeal porter?
Did it pour with some head, then fall immediately? How many volumes of CO2 did you carbonate it to?

comment What can I do to ensure my high OG wort ferments well?
I ended up brewing the first 3 gallons with about 40% of the fermentables, pitching, then topping it off to 5 gallons (with the remainder of fermentables) at high krausen. It was probably unnecessary, but it ended up working out well as I used my stove for the boil and it wouldn't have been able to handle the full 5 gallons. Next batch, however, will be a single batch with a larger yeast starter :)

comment Are some types of beers easier to brew than others?
A good way to think about brewing is that you're really making a yeast-farm, and the yeast are making your beer. A good strain of yeast + good food for them == great beer

comment Bottle Sizes Smaller than 12 Ounces?
Is it carbonated? If not then the bottle might not hold pressure. Otherwise, it looks good as long as you have a bench capper (a hand-held capper likely won't be able to grip the neck on that)

comment Which pieces of brewing equipment seem like a good idea to buy, but are of limited usefulness?
@JackSmith one tip to help prevent plastic from taking on flavors and smells is to always wash them in cold water; particularly while they're dirty

yes and no, they fill a need for those of us with space/budget constraints that prevent us from buying all the needed kegging gear.

revised Are there any particular steps to fixing a batch of beer with extra trub / hot-break, or should it settle (as best as possible) on its own?
