Plus where every leg meets the dolly, I put hurricane angle clips to further reinforce
the stress and strain of rolling an elevated 100# of beer ( its actually150# beer + Barrel)

Reading this post, and looking at a yeast cake I need to harvest from,
I do NOT see where the OP's original question was answered....

Where in those strata are the most yeast?

Also, you don't need to say rod bacillus, because bacilli are defined by having a rod shape.

I post this to illustrate my thinking, not to pose an argument, but this is why I said "rod bacteria"
I am far far from any type of microbiologist.

Uh ....spirochetes(sp) are bacteria...not rod shaped

. .assuming it's physically anchored to the moving dolly.

Yes I put long lag screws up thru each "leg" physically anchoring it to the dolly.

  Lately I've been experimenting more with distilled hop oil for aroma as well...I'm getting pretty close to the result I'm really looking for with that. 

That would be "hop shots" ?

My first dry hop beer (pils) tastes really nice....just has these hop ghosts
floating around in the brew. I know this is normal but the hop ball containing one oz
of hop flower is allowing ghostly floaties....normal???  May go away with time?
I plan to leave the hops in for now....can't hurt anything. real PITA to get them out
of the keg....

The trash factor probably does not matter to you folks... :o

Cynmar, not a HBS, ships with starch based packing peanuts. They dissolve in water and you could even mash them. I’m not sure how food grade they are but wouldn’t it be cool to brew a packing peanut beer?

Kai pnt br...ewwwwwww....

I see it is an emzyme, so I am no longer thinking polyclar.

Interesting. Please let us know what you hear.  I wonder now if it is a proprietary
item or if an MSDS exists (and by law an MSDS should exist).
Polyclar comes to my mind.....

Yeast and Fermentation / Re: when to rack to secondary fermenter?

Sound advice major.  I would say that waiting a couple extra days could even mean
wait an entire week...won't hurt a thing.  The beer will tell you when it is done, you
should not try to tell the beer when you think it is done....
