Or you can get a little thing of peppermint extract and dose it instead, not as much fun but more controllable.

This makes much more sense.  But, for the love of God, peppermint in beer?

If Freshblend is indeed part nitro, that would explain the lower carb level.  But if they're trying to tell you that there's a "regulation" that you have to use beergas instead of straight CO2, I'd ask them to direct you to where you can read a copy of the regulation.  Sounds like maybe they don't know what they're talking about.

Several factors contribute, including:
Starting gravity

Hmmm, something I've never considered.  How does starting gravity affect boil off rate?

I think you probably could, but the problem with anything other than light extract is that you don't really know what's in it.  I don't think I'd use carapils along with the C80, but it depends..what kind of beer is it?

Finally brewing again. It will be a Weizen on Sunday. I prepared the yeast starter last night. Still debating the mashing schedule, but I will be brewing for sure.

Brewery get hit by the storms?  How's the Brutus?

And here I was trying not to hijack this thing.  So we were talking blackberries? 

I was thinking of using these for a porter.  With out overpowering the beer, how much would be recommended for a 5 gallon batch?

The ROT is to use 1 lb./gal.  For something subtle like blackberries or blueberries in a porter, you might want to up that a bit.  I made a blueberry porter once with that ratio and you could hardly tell there were blueberries in it.

I wonder if the TED folks have a no swearing rule? :)

If so, that leaves you out in the cold!  ;)

Not to hijack the thread but will a secondary fermentation make for a clearer beer in the end by removing the heavier sediment?  Just trying to figure a few things out.

Not necessarily.  A long primary can do the same thing.  Many (most?) people no longer use a secondary for normal batches.

If you just smell the tea, does it smell like the hops do in a beer?

Nope, not at all.  Smelling the raw hops gives you a much better idea.

Agreed.  I remember back during the superbowl, AHA said they were gonna try and get the recipe.  Anyone know if that happened?

I recently heard that the White House brewer wants to perfect the recipe before releasing it.
