comment Is there anyway to tell if a glass bottle of beer is carbonated without opening it?
@CLJ -- then homebrewing might not be the best hobby for you; patience is key

comment Alternatives to a hydrometer?
In this case I'd say this is a valid answer. Hydrometers are fragile, but it sounds like the OP could stand to make sure he's using it correctly. Perhaps this answer could reiterate the correct procedure for using a hydrometer.

comment Liquid malt extract storage
so what about canning it (in glass)? Sterilize the cans, fill them full, and seal them just like any other preserve.

comment Ginger Beer recipe
Thanks! I'm trying to keep my GAS (gear-acquisition-syndrome) from landing me with a kegging kit just yet, but I think I've got some friends with the SodaStream system--might have to test this recipe with their machine to see about force-carbonating without bottle-bombs.

comment How do I do a sour mash?
Regarding the second method; I've heard of people who are cloning Guiness to pour a bottle into an open bowl (covered with cloth to keep particles out) and leaving it out for ~2wks until there's nasty growth on top. The growth gets scooped off, and the rotten beer gets boiled for ~10 to sterilize, then it's added to the rest. Seems ballsy
