comment Estery fruit flavors in my vanilla bourbon imperial porter
Keith is spot on here. I've made that beer before (Denny's recipe is one of the best beers I've ever made), and I think I left it on primary for 3-4 weeks. It's a monster of a beer, and should be left alone for a good bit. The higher the gravity, the longer you should wait.

comment Move to secondary?
Absolutely Husker Steve. No problem at all. Most folks will say that anything under 3-4 months on the original yeast cake is fine, and I've gone longer without any problems.

comment What is a “blonde” beer, and how do you make it?
That is a very, very good recipe. I'll add that we've dry-hopped it too with nice results for those who like something a touch more... interesting.

comment What's a good small-batch fermentation vessel?
@STW - I don't think you could modify it to use an airlock - it doesn't seal, which is why it doesn't use an airlock. I suppose if you found another lid which fits the hole precisely. The temp control is an interesting benefit I didn't think of...

comment What's a good small-batch fermentation vessel?
The issue I have with the Mr. Beer fermenter is that it's not really airlocked or otherwise airtight. I KNOW - bubbles are not a sign of fermentation, but they do make me feel all warm and fuzzy inside. You won't get that with Mr. Beer.

comment Is rapid wort chilling always needed?
Excellent point Max. If he stays an extract/partial boil brewer he'll notice little to no difference here.

comment What is wet hopping and how does it differ from dry?
Fair enough - I was feeding off the compare/contrast with dry-hopping part of the question I suppose.

This question is probably mistagged, as you get no official "utilization" in the way brewers mean from dry or wet hopping.

comment Curiously high OG after first all-grain batch
Fair enough! Thanks for the tip and correction. Just to be clear, though, I solve the problem of too vigorous a boil by lowering the heat, correct? (not intended sarcastically in any way to say I'm correct, just checking to make sure).
