Maybe I need to give it another try.

Why so long in the primary? No empty kegs...now I will bottle beers from keg and get on with a quicker rotation to the kegs.
Amanda and I have decided this thread is full of liars.
at the very least you guys are entering competitions a lot less frequently than those making the infected stuff I keep running into at the judging table.
Sure, I've tossed batches. Certainly more because of oxidation or just being tired of it, but infections happen. Occasionally the effect is lovely, and sometimes others don't even notice it. Friends couldn't detect the mouse in a batch of cider, but it was there, and I didn't keep that **** another day.
By the way Joe Sr, no holds barred on your feedback. I'm thick skinned and want to know what you really think
I brewed back to back batches of German pils this week to test Brewtan B. The next batch will be #500 and I'm trying to decide when that's gonna happen.
The plastic corks work but as Joe said they can be a real PITA to deal with. I've finally run through a bag I had from several years ago. No more.
You can also get natural corks for these bottles. Beware that there are different size corks and not all fit all bottles. The corks designed for Belgian bottles (the mushroom topped bottles that are falling out of favor) are larger than what you need for champagne bottles and can crack the neck of the bottle when they swell.
You could use iso extract to adjust it
