I've been brewing since spring 2008. The more I do it, the more I enjoy it, and I love learning new information and new techniques.

I really like the fact that brewing combines and applies knowledge from so many different realms, and much like cooking, ends up with the best results being considered as works of art as much of science and engineering.

comment How to transport homebrew
I was thinking about heat spoilage, rather than cold. I'm not sure of any good portable way to keep it above freezing in the back of a truck when you're stopped at night, though.

comment How much time should a warm-fermenting yeast strain sit at the high primary temperature?
I dropped this braggot down to cellar temperatures (~55F) after putting it into secondary, and it's been slowly clearing up. I don't notice any acetaldehyde coming from it. It did contain a bit when the yeast were still in suspension, but I think the 3 weeks at the high temperature allowed them to clean up after themselves quite well.
