Is this the same Kruger responsible for current US economic policy by which the stupid Keynesians got it in their heads that they can keep the economy running hot forever by continuing to tweak knobs on all the bubbles so they never pop?  (QE3 is an attempt to re-inflate the already busted housing bubble)

Ahem...getting close to political there.

I use whichever smell better when I'm ready to dry hop.  1-3 oz. for a week or so, then usually another 1-3 oz. in the keg.

IIRC, they bottle everything they make with T-58.

Don't come to the PNW.  You won't like it.

These are not the droids you're looking for.......

Let's all move to Noti!

It's too small for everybody!  ;)

I recently found a nearly full case of Duvel that I bought 3 years ago and forgot about.  It had remained in great shape and maybe even improved a bit.

A little civil disobedience never hurt anybody.

True....but you have to be ready to pay the price.

AFAIK, HopShot is a blend of hops.  They did seem to have one or 2 single hops varieties at one time, but I don't see those any more.

First I've heard of it, but I'm gonna start looking for it!  Sounds like it's highly modified, which I love..."extremely high enzyme power".

Can you harvest yeast from Celebrator?

Do they bottle with the fermentation strain?

Somewhere out there in the ether I had found a site that purported to list out which beers did and did not.  This was helpful in stopping me from trying to culture Franziskaner yeast.

Or you can buy WLP-833, which is said to be the Ayinger strain.

Yes, but the OP said he was harvesting it.

I'd be surprised it celebrator wasn't filtered.  I don't recall ever seeing any sediment in it.

I have not. If the mash pH is too high, would it be enough for me to drop it with some citric acid (which I have lying around for other purposes)? Or would something like a pH stabilizer that I've seen at the homebrew store be better?

Based on my own experience and what I've read from many others, the pH stabilizer is ineffective and add a strange taste to your beer due to the amount of sodium in it.  I don't think citirc acid would be effective because you;d have to add so much it might affect the flavor.  I use either lactic or phosphoric acid to lower pH.  You can also use sauermalt (Yeah, I probably dickchimped the spelling) to lower pH.  But you'll have to have a way of measuring pH to know how much to use and if it's effective.
