Flocculate on the rio
Kendo, I encourage you to continue the wonderful art/science of brewing your own beer. It is a beautiful adventure like river running. You embark on a journey that takes you to so many places with learning and enhancing your brewing methods. You have a lot of good information shared on this thread and I believe you should experiment the hell out of 'em. That's what I did. I'm continuing to learn. When you are on the river and you have a righteous vessel of brew you'll soon discover the kayaks, rafts, cats, and drift boats slowly make their way toward you. Then soon, people will want to taste your brew and you'll be happy to have them try the labors of your love. It's like watching your pitched yeast flocculate when those river runners quench their dry throats. One big orgy of boats floating down the river celebrating your brew amigo. By then life will be good. Your only problem is to decide whether to announce last call or your 2.5 gallon corny keg ran dry.
