comment How do I make a Yeast Starter?
I'd never seen those before, but googling around, it looks pretty cool. Suppose it makes sense- yeast can live without oxygen, but it needs it to reproduce (which is the point of a starter). Spinning a magnet inside to keep the starter aerated would work great for that. I wonder if any other automated aeration methods (eg, a fishtank bubbler) would do the trick...

comment How do you cool wort?
Regarding the ice method, couldn't you just boil some water, then freeze it in sanitized tupperware?

comment How would you ship your brew?
But of course. :P If, hypothetically, you were going to break the law, it's good practice to know those laws specifically. :)
