comment What are the pros and cons of adding specialty grains to the mash?
@JackSmith: In my opinion, "How to Brew" is, in general, overly concerned with minor details that are unlikely to appreciably affect the quality of a beer. I tend to side with Papazian's "Relax. Don't worry. Have a homebrew." methodology.

@JackSmith - I can't say for sure, but I don't imagine the relatively small amounts of specialty grains would significantly affect mash chemistry.

comment Should a starter be hopped?
Hops tends to inhibit bacterial growth more that yeast, so some people hop their starters highly to prevent infection.

Voted to close; too localized & too "meta" (not about brewing, but about laws about brewing).

comment Boiling bottle caps
Likewise. Some bottle caps rust when the metal part (not the plasticized inner part) is exposed to water or sanitizer.
