I usually taste my hydrometer samples.This. Acetylaldehyde is something yeast clean up after fermentation. If fermentation is done and you don't taste it, you're good to go.
How about dipped in sour cream, and then rolled in brown sugar. I spend at least one summer day doing that every year.
I was surprized too. I've heard people fret over giving up 10% ownership. 50% is substantial, so either he's looking for a real business partner/investor or he doesn't know what he's doing. I don't mean to be picky, but it's not like he's using equity to buy extensive commercial brewing experience - since it doesn't sound like you have that. Just be careful.
Definitely strange to give up half ownership unless he plans on you contributing a substantial portion of start up costs. It's too much equity to give up to retain an employee, even if you were the greatest brewer on earth. I think it's even too much equity to give up to make you take on management of the brewing side of the business without pay if he's financing the start up (although that is probably not an advantageous position for you, anyway).
