I use the lightest color I can find just because it's easier to see through, no other reason.

Isn't Golden Promise a cultivar? Like Maris Otter? If so, what has the cultivar that they use have to do with how long it's kilned or stewed or toasted?

Another way they get their beer darker is by using EBC instead of SRM.

Thanks, guys! I'm really glad to be among such knowledgeable and welcoming gentlemen. Looking forward to benefiting from your collective expertise and helping out if and when I can.
...and ladies.

Yeah, there are some of us ladies around here too! It's not just a he-man woman haters club. ;)

Glad to have you!
Hurray for girls!

Does it run on Europe power? I'd do more investigation just to be sure.

For anyone who has mistakenly boiled the gel. Do the jello chunks float? I poured a couple pints off the IPA that I probably boiled the gelatin for. Its every bit as turbid as before. So I'm picturing gelatin dumplings floating around doing nothing. By the way I re gelled it using the correct method.

Justin, let me suggest writing off clear beer on this one. Using or not using Wirlflock in a dry hopped APA or IPA will make only negligible difference anyway. Drink it from a red solo.

Nice tip on corking Belgian bottles. It's been a few years since I've bottled Belgian beers. I used the rubber stopper and found the same inconsistencies. I really love the idea of the stainless collar.
Thanks! I find it to be a cheap, clean, and durable fix. I sent morebeer a note. Maybe it will catch on and I'll be famous lol

Someone should take an old dough mixer and add an induction heater to it, then you could have an automated boil while continuously stiring decoction machine.

Mark, you are probably right regarding other brewing forums. And I know you arent singling out anyone here, its just a discussion.  But if it helps, I've seen numerous members here suggest continuous/fly sparging to new brewers. It happens quite frequently. Every time they suggest reading How to Brew.

I'm picturing Dylan singing Kashmir, in his nasally voice.  Funny mental picture.
When you do that it seems plausible that Dylan wrote that song.
