    Temps for kegging

    Moisture can be due to a poor seal allowing air to get into the freezer, so could check all the seals. Have had issues before with a freezer when the kids don't quite shut the door properly, extra ice over everything. Also, if running the cables for the probes into the freezer, can put a cut in the seal, then duct tape or silicon around it to minimise air ingress.

    Glass or plastic bottles ???

    I have both. Always fill some PET bottles each batch as can easily check how carbonation is going with a squeeze test.

    fermenting temperature

    Agree. Most accurate, but also most likely to introduce an infection if dropping a probe into the wort. More work involved sanitising unless it is a set up with thermo-well that is clean/santised with the FV.

    +1 to this method

    Reusing yeast - the starter method

    If it is an induction cooktop, it won't work with pyrex - need metal base on pots/pans

    No better compliment than those coming back for more
  8. But more importantly, did you get it on video for fast home brew? (almost as important as not getting burnt)

    It's my understanding (that doesn't make it correct though) that soaking the beans in vodka or similar high alcohol solution helps extract more flavour and not necessarily for sterilisation.

    Here's a substitution chart for most malts but doesn't include carabohemian - which is around Caramunich 3 (EBC 200) or medium to dark crystal.
