Well that sucks. Does that mean I could have to wait that long to bottle safely?Bottle at final gravity. And I test for FG on my sours with two readings at least a week apart.

Depending on the filter, certainly. With a fine enough filter element you can strip all of the yeast out, where fining will always leave some behind.Filtering would drop some hoppiness, but if you think about it so does cold crashing, right?
Very true. Yea, clarity isn't very important to me (or I wouldn't add Oats to pale ale) but I still hope to avoid any off flavors by having too much sediment/yeast in suspension and pour a clean tasting brew.
Since filtering and cold crashing/transferring essentially serve the same purpose I guess my next questions are:
1) Do you loose less beer by filtering? I seem to loose about ¼ gallon or so when I transfer from keg to keg.
2) Does filtering do a significantly better job?
And never exchange a tank for one that has brass fittings that have turned blue.Pretty rare these days with cheap import so readily available and ingredients not so much.
True, but be prepared to get an occasional "lacking peat/earth/smoke" comment.Brew what you want. as long as I don't have to drink it.FYP. Don't use peated malt if you're entering it into a comp (unless you're entering it as a smoked beer). It's out of style for Scot ales, and I might have to drink it.
Congrats to the winners!I think its one per sub cat.
I see some double wins in categories. I thought you could only submit one entry per style?
