comment Why do my airlocks lose liquid?
I play the "one for you, one for me game" when I'm pouring a shot into my airlock... it's the single best reason to use vodak!

comment Is homebrewing beer legal in Ontario Canada?
+1 brewchez -- just because it's legal to buy the supplies doesn't make it legal to produce the product.

comment Ever brew Kombucha?
+1 for keeping beer and kombucha away from one another. Kombucha doesn't use a particular yeast, and some that are common in it (such as Brettanomyces) aren't desirable in (most) beers. Sharing equipment, or allowing kombucha near raw wort could lead to some very strange results.

...you can also consider adding salt to the ice bath to drop the termperature even further chemically. You'd want to be careful doing this with an aluminum kettle as the salt may corrode it.

comment Small Space & Apartment Brewing: The Chill
When using an ice-bath you'll get the most efficiency by keeping both the wort and the water moving; and by keeping the wort vessel an inch or so off the bottom of the sink.

comment Small Space & Apartment Brewing: Fermentation
If you have your carboy in a larger vessel, with sand packed between, then you can just-add-water and turn it into an evaporative cooler as well. Water added to the sand will evaporate and cause a cooling effect--the trade-off to consider is that it also adds humidity to the air. Overall though it should perform well during hot days, for control you could consider a continuous-drip line into the sand at an adjustable rate.

comment Should I shake bottles during conditioning?
do you think this would make a noticable difference? Would it be flavor, head/body? I might experiment with a subset of the brown ale I'm bottling this weekend.
