LOL!  I would have said the same thing in 1975.  Just wait till you hit your 61st birthday and then report back.
Meantime, cheers, and have a great 2014!

Amazing the perspective that age brings, huh?  I drank only 3 beers on New Year's Eve and I drank them over the course of 10 hours.

So I am thinking no one thinks storing ale yeast under beer in ambient reasonable temperatures could be detrimental to the yeast?

I wouldn't do it for more than a couple days.

Specialty.  The coffee and chocolate take it out of stout territory.

45 - 90 minutes. Based on what Beersmith tells me to do! :)

Remember, Beersmith is a tool to help you brew the way you want to brew.  It is not instructions about how to brew.  YOU should make the decisions!

The last three times checking in from my tablet (Nexus 7) I have been logged in as someone else. It does not happen on my desktop. At least I haven't been Denny!

Thank your lucky stars!

I used to think that some beer left on yeast would protect it some. I wouldn't rinse yeast real well and would refrigerate yeast with a layer of beer in mason jars. I had one grow mold on top of the thin layer of beer even though I was extremely careful with sanitation and boiled all rinsing water. Yeast I've left with no beer on top has never become infected.
I would think that as long as there's nothing wrong with the appearance of your starter you should be fine. I would cold crash it and decant though. Anymore I never leave yeast in a carboy for more than a day if I plan to reuse it.

I have stored yeast in the fridge with beer on top hundreds of times and never seen mold or an infection.  I have to believe it was due to something other than leaving yeast under beer.

There seems to be confusion here between body and mouthfeel.

How do you distinguish the two things Denny?

From the BJCP Study Guide...

"The body of a beer is characterized as its fullness, viscosity, or thickness on the tongue and palate;
descriptors range from watery or characterless to satiating or thick. Body is a component of mouthfeel,
which encompasses physical sensations such as astringency, alcoholic warmth and carbonation; the
combination of all those components determines how the beer stimulates the palate. The body is
determined by the levels of dextrins and medium-length proteins. Lack of dextrins is caused by low
saccharification temperatures, excessive use of adjuncts or by highly attenuative yeast strains. A low
protein level may be caused by excessively long protein rests, excessive fining or the addition of large
amounts of fermentable sugars. Light body is appropriate in American light lagers and lambics, but not
in strongly malt-accented styles such as barleywines, Scotch ales, and doppelbocks."

All the care in the world can't negate accidents.  Every carboy I've broken, I've been completely sober, dry hands, aware of the danger and taking precautions.  They've still been able to slip out of my hands and break.

Anyone think haze in a carboy could cause off flavors? I think my answer is no, but I don't know 100%. I've tried soaking them in starsan solution, soaking one now with 5 gallons of water and 2 cups of white vinegar. 18 hours later and I'm still seeing the cloud line. It's weird.

It obviously depends on the source of the haze (is it bacteria growing on the carboy?), but in general I'd say no.

This time I got to be Denny briefly. I was going to post something wicked but I was just too lazy pragmatic

HA upon pressing the post button I got the Timed out message

You're the only person other than me that I've heard about the timeout from.

FWIW, the forum is acting completely normal for me today!
