I've replied to my family with so many links from snopes that they don't even bother sending me that kind of thing any more.
And yeah, on facebook I just hide or unfriend people who post stupid or annoying stuff. It works fine.
I wonder if the first edition is the cheap one on Amazon not the latest edition. Don't know but it would explain the cost issue
Edit... I looked. The Amazon one is a 2006 edition
BJCP-wise, I don't think it would do well. It's going to be pretty dark and very caramel-forward, more like a really rich Americanized Oktoberfest than a Vienna. Even if that's what you're going for I would reduce the crystal. 14% is just way too much for any lager IMHO.
Strawberries are a low pectin fruit. I'm skeptical that that's the issue. How much did you use? Did the baked strawberries begin to jell as they cooled before you put them in the fermenter? If not, that's probably not it. Steaming is a better method, if you feel the need. You could also freeze them for a week before using them, that would break down the cell walls.
Or just roughly chop them add them without doing anything else. Works for me.
Ok, so I found out the reason to not use starsan at high temps. The reason is that at higher temps, you will actually lower the pH of your solution. So instead of being at say 9 or so pH at room temp. You will actually be closer to 7 at a higher temp. ( this was just an example)
No it's automatic signature. If it's annoying I'll take it off
