That is one of the most horrifying, disgusting things I have ever seen. I soooo wish my work computer had chosen not to show me that picture

Goes to show despite what some people pound around as gospel (pun not intended) you do not need weeks or months in primary before fermentation and clean up is over.
I'd say "You don't always need weeks in primary". Sometimes you do, sometimes you don't.
Denny, would you please expand on this? Is it a function of the krausen dropping like Euge said above? IOW, how do I know it is OK to keg and cold condition?
I would venture a guess that if Balcones charges $50/each the homebrew shop had to pay for shipping on all the barrels on top of that. I believe Balcones usually only sells by the pallet now which might be cheaper shipping in bulk but probably still $20-30 per barrel. They probably aren't making as much off the barrels as you think. On the other hand, people are so desperate for barrels 100% markup would not surprise me.
I don't know why anyone would want a beer without hops, but there is a whole list of herbs that could potentially be used for bitterness in Radical Brewing by Randy Mosher. They won't necessarily share hops' preservative qualities, however.
Kind of depends on the recipe. pretty low but if it's all grain mashed low with a low OG it's not that low. s-05 is a workhorse for sure not like a belgian saison yeast but still a pretty good chugger.So here is the recipe (don't laugh, I am a noob and made it up)
6 lbs Amber LME
.75 lbs Wheat berries
1 lbs 2 row
.25 lbs Rolled oats
.5 lbs Wild rice
1.5 lbs Honey
2 oz Hallertau pellet hops
1st cereal mashed the wild rice and wheat berries, then mashed all the grains at 155 for 70 minutes.
Just had my cherry juice for the day. The bottle of concentrate had the company, which is from Michigan, and below that in the fine print "product of Turkey". They had to find the tart cherries somewhere. Now I know one of the wheres.
yeesh - I'll check the bottle I have left over. I want to make sure my cherries are AT LEAST from this country, hopefully from the midwest. Thanks for the heads up!
I just misinterpreted itwouldn't thinner line create more restriction and therefore need less length? I use ~4 foot 3/16 ID and it works fine 8-12 PSI (a little foamy at 12)Yes, but 1/4" is wider than 3/16".
I was responding to Denny's comment RE: too short and too thin.
