    Bulging Can

    If that's the reason for the $10 sale, they ought to be telling us that. Don't just send them out leaving folks to wonder.

    Why the longer brew cycle?

    Actually, Mr Beer read on this forum (7 or 8 years ago) that users were getting better results going 3 weeks so they finally changed the instructions.

    PET Bottles

    I've stored for as long as 1 1/2 years in regular plastic w/o problem many times. I really don't know what the oxygen barrier bottles are for. Maybe there's people who store forever?

    How long to condition?

    Carbing and conditioning can be thought of as one process. Generally, a minimum of 4 weeks at room temp after bottling. Then move a bottle to the fridge for 3 days of cold conditioning and drink it.

    Re-using soda bottles?

    Root beer bottles are not recommended because of the smell. I've used lots of Coke and Pepsi bottles and they've lasted for years. Because they are clear, keep them in the dark after bottling.

    Clean Bottles Between Batches

    I use 7th Generation Free and Clear that I found on Amazon. This was a few years ago and it only came in 8 bottle cartons. I have enough to last several lifetimes.

    Suggestions-Thoughts ?

    I have a neighbor who home brews and he never refrigerates. Bottle conditions for 4 weeks, moves them to the basement where it's upper 50's and drinks them. To each his own I guess.

    Recipe suggestion

    There's something about drinking beer out of a green bottle that turns my stomach.
