Is there a difference in effectiveness between the various stages of the yeast lifecycle? In particular, can dormant yeast survive StarSan or some other santiation treatments? I've seen odd references (but can't quickly track them down now) to different gram reactions for yeast in different stages, and I wonder if this is indicative of sanitizer resistance.

All Grain Brewing / Re: Introduction to Low Oxygen Brewing

Somebody suggested taping the lid airtight to the kettle, sticking in a tube and letting a tiny amount of CO2 flow in during the mash, with just a small hole so that the excess amount of oxygen/CO2 can escape.

Cask breather? Maybe plus an airlock?

Other Fermentables / Re: Cider on Nitro?

Schilling Cider House in Seattle always has at least one nitro tap and I tried a couple on recent visits. As another poster said, without the protein it doesn't get cascading and any slight creaminess dissipates quickly. The diffuser tap just seems to knock out more of the CO2 which is the main benefit and makes it a bit smoother and softer ("creamy") compared to the CO2 taps. But you could do that with lower carbonation to begin with.

My confirmation says the dates for the rate are the 25th - 30th.

My confirmation says the conference is 25-30, but the reservation form indicated the special rate days as starting the 22nd, and it's usual for conferences to extend the rate a bit. But I guess not this time as Drew posted. I was mainly thinking about Tuesday night, to be prepared for any Wed AM tours or activities, so I'll just find another room downtown...

Friday and Saturday nights are sold out at the host hotel. We’re in the process of securing more rooms at nearby hotels and will post more information on February 6.

The pre-conference nights (Sat Jun 22 - Tue Jun 25) were also sold out, or not available, and I was in there fairly early. Were those nights limited or were they just never really available?
