If the Good Lord didn't want us to eat animals, he wouldn't have made them out of meat.

Exactly. That would really show whether it counts or not.QuoteI would not extrapolate that to mean that you dont have to aerate or oxygenate, and I dont think the findings of the experiment are suggesting that.
I agree. I wonder what would happen if this were repeated with, say, a Helles?
I guess I don't see why it wouldn't work if you add it at kegging and then allow it to crash. It mixes in when racking the beer on top of it. But I don't know...maybe it settles out and is worthless then...Another +1 for crashing in keg while I carb. After a couple days I'll fine with gelatin or Biofine (for styles I want crystal clear).Why don't you guys just add the gelatin when you keg it? It shouldn't make much different should it?
Gelatin (or Biofine) seem to work better when you get the beer cold first - the directions for Biofine and several references to adding gelatin say to. I just like to give it a day or two to let the beer hit serving temp then add the fining.

I'm not surprised that the differences were noticeable. I am surprised that the 'hoppy' profile was as well received as it was. I've always found too much sulfate to give a dark beer a harsh, near acrid character. I read that you fined the kegs and that the delta diminished afterward. Regardless, nice work again !So what is this "delta" you speak of?
Same here. Sometimes I wonder if it doesn't detect the slowest of leaks though; the kind that won't drain your co2 tank, but will make the beer take twice as long to carbonate.Doesn't mean it will be holding pressure just fine that when you pop the lid, fill it, and close it up again...
No, it's no guarantee but it's a good indication for me. I always leak check with a starsan spray bottle regardless. Don't like bad surprises.
Doesn't mean it will be holding pressure just fine that when you pop the lid, fill it, and close it up again...I don't understand the need to keep them pressurized just to have to depressurize prior to filling with beer.Couple of reasons. Pressurized means nothing is getting in there. It will remain sanitary. Also, since I'm sealing the keg while wet with Star San I want to avoid oxygen.
+1. I like knowing before filling with beer that the keg still holds pressure, too.
If I can do that with cheaper ingredients and a single-infusion mash, why wouldn't I? That said, I think the "indistinguishable" point is important, because I'll shell out for producing a better beer.
