Thanks for all the turbo explanations. Just was not something I had seen before. Have not used any Durst product yet but am familiar with the brand name

From my restaurant and bar experience, we had our lines cleaned every 2 weeks at the Bistro until we started using another vendor who used a different product that the state of Ohio said then only needed to be cleaned monthly. There was a tracking sheet in every restaurant  where the tech would sign off when job complete.  The form looked pretty formal and had state of Ohio seal on it. The people you asked just may not have known

Here is a linked beersmith recipe I found here on the forum:

no idea how it comes out, as I have not made it myself, but am looking into doing something similar in the next couple of batches

Pretty sure there have been a couple recent threads on here about the style. Do a quick search of the forum and see, I'm about to as well

You should be able to do that, or pick up some carb tablets and add proper amount to each bottle. Trying to figure out how much sugar to add to each individual bottle may be quite a headache and allow for more O2 ingress between weighing, adding, and recapping. Good luck either way

What happens if I take two American Pale Ale No Boil Complete 5 gallon beer kits and combine them to make 5 gallons
You'll make really strong beer if it works.  If it doesn't you'll make a high alcohol syrupy mess. 
You have a strong chance of making something very bitter, or with too much "specialty malt" flavor (roast, caramel, etc).  Doubling recipes works if you increase all the ingregients, including water.  Doubling all the ingredients EXCEPT the water may overload the beer with hops or specialty malt.
Make sure the yeast you use has high alcohol tolerance.  If you get through primary fermentation and you're bottling, there's a chance that the yeast may give you the middle finger and go on strike, leaving you with flat beer.
Consider just adding some simple sugar to your recipe to boost gravity: try a cup or two for starters.
Or don't.  It's only beer.  I did a "high gravity" beer for my second extract batch.  Turned into lawn fertilizer.  I learned some things.  I tried tripling the amount of crystal malt in a beer for my second all grain batch.  Turned into lawn fertilizer.  I learned some things. 
Years later, I'm still learning with each batch, but make much less fertilizer!


Just curious JT....how does the lawn look?

Sounds like you probably got an infection from your equipment that previously was used for lambics.  Buckets are notorioius for that. They can house those wild critters in even the smallest of scratches in the plastic. 

Let this one ride out for a few mos and then have yourself a taste. You may be pleasantly surprised. After that, start fresh with some new buckets for your "clean" beers.
Exactly what I wound up doing: new racking cane, tubing, couple new buckets, etc. No problems since that batch

One of the bags of hops I got from Yakima was compromised. Lost the vacuum. They apologized but that didn't replace that bag. Imagine a freezer full of Tahoma-flavored food.
I order the Foodsaver vac sealer last night.


Good for you - you'll love it. And by the way, their vacuum bags allow Zero hop flavor into your food. Which also means zero air getting in. Win-win.

No draft system here, but I have 2 versions of my Ofest in bombers, some Stone one offs, a couple Otra Vez and Tropical IPA. I'll watch the game, but really not a fan of either team, but Newton looks like a beast on the field, should be fun. Enjoy it everyone
