What would happen if you "accidentally" left it outside on a freezing night?

In the worst case you would lose your Brewers License and you would be out of business.

Do you have Brewers Notice?
If yes contact your friendly TTB agent.
They will be more then willing to help.

Another thing is that by freezing you are removing volume.
Beer is taxed by volume (not by % of alcohol).
You would still have to have process permit by TTB because in essence you are reducing volume and government is losing tax.

When I do 100F rest for 20 min I get better efficiency.
This might be due to lactic acid been produced at that temp.

I will be brewing Vienna Lager

Man, I gotta get me one of these Therminators and drill my kettle for a ball valve. 
There are also other brands like Duda Diesel that are just little bit less expensive.

Never used the stuff. how much and when and how?

Doing a quick search on this forum, I found this quote from bluesman:
Here's my method for 5 gallons of beer.

1. add 1 tsp gelatin to 8oz (cold water)
2. let stand for 30 min.
3. microwave until you see the first bubble (then stop microwave)
4. chill to 40F
5. add to chilled and kegged beer and gently stir.
6. allow 24 hrs to settle
7. force carbonate beer
8. blow out gelatin sediment and serve beer

Step #4 you chill the beer or gelatine?
I put hot gelatine into the cold beer.
Works just fine.

You probably have some live yeast there.
Just keep it in the flask and at some point you will see activity.
I had a few experiences like yours so I start with smaller starter and step it up if I suspect any problems.


Thanks for the info.  I'll have to consider that.  I've never been sure how the shipping rules and prices work within the EU, and how, with England using different currency, affects that.  I just get worried about shipping because Italy can be a bureaucratic nightmare on things like shipping and customs  >:( (although my bad experience was shipping from the States).

You should be O.K. with shipping in EU.
It would be like shipping from New York to Florida.
If you pay with Credit card (how else) banks are more then happy to convert money in between themselves.

Equipment and Software / Re: SS vs Copper Immersion Chiller

One more thing.
when you say 1/2" copper it usually means ID.
When you say 1/2 SS it is usually OD.
