AG brewer since 2007. Current rig is a clone plus extras of http://theelectricbrewery.com. I like most styles of beer.

Projects in progress are a custom kegbot that tracks beer consumption without a flowmeter, a brewpi fermentation controller and a digital specific gravity meter.

Well written ...almost too well written...some of the descriptions made me want to gag a little! ;-) But this is fantastic - you write about the real art of brewing.

comment What hops are a little less bitter than Warrior?
Cool. Yes, hops are pretty flexible, there's many ways to use them to get different results.

comment High FG / Low Attenuation across 3 different beers
Just a hint, but imho too many homebrewers brew by numbers, rather than brew by taste. Of course numbers are good for your long term process, but don't think the beer is bad just because the numbers don't show what you are expecting - find a fault first in the taste (e.g. too sweet/dry), and then look to the numbers for help troubleshooting that.

comment Kegging Vs Bottling in regards to Conditioning
re: conditioning - if you're naturally carbonating by priming with sugar, then it's correct - temps are too cold for ale yeasts to ferment. Here, the question states using a tank of CO2, so the cold temperatures are in fact beneficial since CO2 is more soluble at lower temperatures.

comment Wyeast Smack Pack did not inflate
An important detail when discussing yeast, especially liquid yeast is the manufacturing date or BBE. Can you provide these dates for the various packs?

comment Wyeast Smack Pack did not inflate
@Denny, so you think that if you smacked two packs - one cold, and one at room temp, they would both be at the same level of inflation in 8 hours time? Common knowledge says the warm one will start sooner, since it doesn't need to warm up first. While storing in the fridge is the way to go, it also says on the instructions that the pack should be incubated at 70-75°F (21-24°C). (wyeastlab.com/hb_productdetail.cfm?ProductID=16)
