Surfin.mikeg: your package is on the way, will pm with tracking info, as I forgot to on my last pm to you

I'm the same way Steve, I just know different breweries have different methods and was curious if anyone knew for sure

Hey bringing this back to the future because I just found a 6 pack. Does anyone know how these bottles are date stamped?  My 6 has (I think) 6/?/15 stamped on it. If that is a best by date I'll truly wish I hadn't spent $12 on it, but if that's a born on date, I can live with it. First time I've seen it in my travels around SE Indiana,  N KY, and SW Ohio. It was the only 6er left and it is warm so I guess my hopes are not too high. I let the clerk at the bottle shop know that I would be very interested if they were to get more in stock. Won't likely be drinking this till the end of the month, will report back then

Morty, the other option is splitting the vial/pack into 2 1L starters. Initial pitch rate is lower, but should get you into the same ball park for the starters. 1L max density is around 200B cells if given proper carbon source and aeration at least as I understand it. This is what I did for my 10 gallon batch of pilsner a couple months back, but I did split the batch into 2 fermenters. Very happy with the results, if you are splitting as well, I highly recommend this path. If using a larger fermenter, then I am not 100% certain but think you can still go this route

It's a company laptop, so it's probably almost time for a newer one anyways

Not sure how it's being paid for: lease/rental, but I have done speed tests wired up and wireless with my laptop less than 6 feet from their box and those were the results I g ot. The box has been replaced once already, but even then their tech told me he thought it was my laptop, because his phone was getting fast service as long as my laptops WiFi was turned off. I had the laptop checked out and our IT company said laptop and it's wireless adaptor were fine.

Spoiler alert: silly noob question coming. I have Comcast Xfinity for home Internet and cable. Wired all devices reach speeds of 80+mps but wireless, we are sometimes lucky to get over 5 mps. This system has been in place for less than 6 months. My question is can I add a router like being discussed here after the large single.  box that they say acts as a router and modem to get better service out of their system? Household running 4 smart phones, 2 laptops, 1 desktop, plus tv

I hear you Dave, planning on trying again and leaving out the sugar. Also going to go with 05 vs the 04 I used last year. And now that I have 6 1G wine jugs, I may try a few different things rather than 1 big batch. Also, after reading a lot of what you have posted, I was likely too hot: high 60's-low 70's last year. I'll  run them lower this year for sure

AmandaK, your/my box full of goodies arrived today and all look to be in good shape. All in refrigerator now, but will likely only have time to try one before leaving town Friday morning. Any suggestions as to what to try first?
