thanks for the input; I'm hoping it turns out to be a "good" mistake--I actually did it halfway conscientously. I decided to aerate the wort in the kettle with my degasser, which really puts a lot of air in. Compared to a second batch this one is fermenting much more actively (although there are quite a few differences between the two)

comment Does beer contain cannabinols?
The nature of this questiuon makes me think it belongs on skeptics.stackexchange.com -- now onto the real question: what happens if I shoot-up LME? A buddy swears it actually black-tar heroin ;-)

comment Old Brown “sour belgian”
the real question is what's the best way for me to get a bottle? Belgians homebrews make me drool, but I've not found any aged beyond a few months (having a hard time not sipping away at my Tripel until it's at 6mos this summer)

comment Why use a synthetic bag for BIAB?
The specific material should still be checked that it's food-grade and safe for boiling temperatures. Many "soft" plastics contain chemical conditioners which can leach at high temperatures. This is a topic wihtout much objective information; however a good rule of thumb is to make sure you're using the product (bag) in an approved way. If it doesn't say it's safe for boiling, then it may not be

comment What factors affect carbonation bubble size?
I (think) alcohol content may play a role as well. With liquor you can visibly determine proof by observing the size of bubbles and their rate of dissipation--so I would presume alcohol would have an effect in beer as well.

comment Off-flavors from bottle conditioning, but not kegging
Also, a smaller concern than sterilizing your sugar by boiling, but consider sanitizing your bottle caps if you currently aren't--especially if you're buying them from a bulk-bin where who-knows-what can get onto them
