I have another fairly simple method to reduce the yeast buildup in your
bottles. A chemist brewer friend of mine recommended this to me. He
said that a couple days before you plan on bottling your batch remove a
couple cups of brew and heat, when warm add 1 tsp of unflavored gelatin
and disolve in the warm brew. When disolved pour back into your
fermentator. This will produce a really clear batch as well as help
settle out the yeast before you bottle. It also will help remove any
nasties suspended in the batch. I do this on most all my batches and
have never had any troubles.

Also in reply to Rob's sugar survey. From time to time I will make a
"cheap" batch using corn sugar and one can of malt extract. I put
the sugar right in to the fermentation bucket and have never had a
cidery batch.

Finally, I'm looking for a good stout recipe using malt extract. Any
one have a favorite they's like to share?
