comment Does anybody else skim the protein off the top of their boil?
I don't actually know. It may be something I heard, or something that I misheard and filled in the blanks with bad info. I was just listening to some Brew Strong archives a couple of hours ago, and in the Head Retention episode, McDole mentioned that he got better head retention when he didn't skim. I may have just projected from that.

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.
