    actually, the best piece of kit that has been invaluable to me is the flask and magnetic stirrer. i can't make effective starters without them since i switched to using live yeasts about 9 months ago.

    Going to Swap to a Corny Keg

    i have bottled the brew i did 3 weeks ago. i got 2 x 19l kegs and 19 bottles out of it. in these tough times of social restriction and high consumption of beer it seemed silly to waste it. i have another 50 litre IPA batch in the FC and got another 50l Lime Hefeweizen brew day planned in 3...

    Going to Swap to a Corny Keg

    That's pretty good actually! I had to pay a £70 odd deposit on the tank which I have a receipt for so I just take the old one back and get a new one for just the cost of the gas. I've had mine since October and I'm still pretty full, i.e. it says more than 100% 💪

    Going to Swap to a Corny Keg

    I used these guys. They supply through all sorts of suppliers: https://www.adamsgas.co.uk/product-category/co2-gas-bottles-for-hydroponics-and-plant-growth/ Found a little auto supplier local to me. They got it ordered and in stock the same day.

    HELP! Foamy beer... but not the whole keg?!

    I will just note that if I run the tap for a few seconds into a big jug until it calms down, it then pours nicely again but if you wait 10 to 15 minutes and pour again, it does it again and you need to get the big jug out

    HELP! Foamy beer... but not the whole keg?!

    It only ever happens as I say when it gets to the last 3rd of the keg. Whether I go through a keg in a week of if I go through it in 2 months. I have them set around 12 psi I think (just had IPAs on recently which I raised from 10 for an english bitter). Not sure on exact temperature as I dont...

    Your Best DIY Equipment?

    Call me old fashioned but I don't have a sparge arm. I use 2 x sheets of tin foil and a fold them together making a wide square piece and slide a tea towel underneath it. I then use a kebab skewer to punch lots of really, really small holes in it and then place it on top of my mash so that I...

    HELP! Foamy beer... but not the whole keg?!

    So this may have been covered by others previously so apologies if this is the case. I have a problem with every single keg I've put on. (Its only 6 kegs, about to put 7 and 8 on this weekened). The last 1/3 of the keg gets very foamy and I have to run some off into a big jug before the foam...

    Brew fridge build

    This is a fermenter I haven't cleaner the krausen ring off yet. The top line is 25 litres, rather than the 23 in a standard wilko fermenter. I just wilko fermenters for holding sanitizer

    Brew fridge build

    Usually between 23 and 25 litres but I use live ale yeast with a starter. In the past, espescially with kits I found that some dried yeasts can really erupt. I have a fermenter here I can take a picture for you. Hang on...
