I'd go straight to Brad Smith on that question. He's always been super responsive to any inquiries I've made regarding tweaking the program with the correct profiles, etc. I'm sure you won't be the first one asking that question either.
I have a new refractometer for sale. I received two as gifts and don't need both. It seems to be made of both plastic and metal but still feels rather hefty. If anyone is interested in getting rid of your hydrometer and start using a refractometer this would be perfect for you. I have used mine for 2 brews so far and it's great. I was able to check the gravity frequently and not lose a lot of wort. I can get a pic of it if people want to see it. i just don't have my camera at the moment.
This still was poorly done....perhaps we need to go to a lottery system as not everyone has the ability to spend a couple hours in the middle of the day to mess with this.
I'm not a fan of the lottery system. I've been playing megabucks for years and I'm still not a millionaire.
The downside of using a foaming substance like Starsan in the airlock instead of vodka:
Civil disobedience is sometimes required to get laws changed. To me, it is not a moral dilemma. Laws are not necessarily based on morality. $$$ speak very loudly in politics.
When I started brewing I used vodka in the airlock. When the bottle ran out I switched to tap water. In hundreds of batches it's never been a problem to use tap water.
+1. I now put 1-2 sprays of my stan stan bottle up the stem and a top with tap water. No issues.
