    Stormy Capetonian weather revealed that glühwein warmed on the fireplace is good, not as good as beer, but under the circumstances an exception can be made.

    Aah ok, just wanted to make sure you're not "condition storing" them in the fridge.

    90g isn't much, but it should be ok to get some bubbles into the beer ... nothing less than 2.0-2.1 volumes on my usual 19L batch ? ... and 2.1 is acceptable ??
    What was your batch size?

    I used 93g of dextrose in my last pilsner, in about 22l total. Carbonation is a bit low, but it's still enough to pour a nice head and it is far from flat.

    Today I learnt that breast milk storage bags function well for storing harvested yeast. I also learnt how to harvest and wash my used yeast.

    I learnt that a maize hammer mill and a rice dehusker won't mill your malt... like nothing!it just comes out the bottom. You have been told. Malt mill ordered and on its way.

    I've learnt that brewing my own beer has ruined some of my favourite commercial craft beers, I'm drinking one of my favourite IPA's and it has off flavours, esthers and the finish and mouth feel is harsh.
