Schlafly Photo of the Day
In order to sample our fermenting beer in an aseptic fasion, we have to bring the heat....
By hitting the sampling port with some flame from a hand-held butane torch after spraying it with ethanol (which is why the blue flame seems to spread so far), we can be assured that the port is free of any airborne contaminants that may have alighted upon it.
