comment Will a carboy's narrow opening hinder or prevent successful wild fermentation?
good to know! I'd heard (via Wyeast marketing materials) that re-pitching from a previous batch wouldn't carry over the same ratios of bugs/yeasts--so hearing a success story is great!

comment Over-carbonating in the bottle
....very interesting; I might have to try that on a test batch to see if there's any noticable difference

Good question -- I just asked "how to recap overcarbonated beer?" over here: homebrew.stackexchange.com/questions/3297/…

comment Carboy Cap vs. Stopper
I'd disagree about stoppers being unsanitary. The liquid around the mouth dries and never makes it into the fermenter, and when racking beer out of a carboy you syphon it--it never comes close to touching the mouth.

comment Should I shake bottles during conditioning?
Wanted to reask my above question (in the comments) -- this will mainly help speed conditioning, but would it produce a noticeable difference in the beer itself?

comment Is homebrewing beer legal in Ontario Canada?
Localized? Yeah... but Ontario isn't all that small, and it's a valid, objective, question likely to be asked again. Let it be answered and slide into the search indexes--it won't bother anyone

comment Will a carboy's narrow opening hinder or prevent successful wild fermentation?
Leaving the question open, I'm still curious if a carboy would/wouldn't work (if I decide to try a true wild fermentation later, I think I'll use the pre-mixes for now)
