    Nucleated glasses Basingstoke-Reading area

    I like how Chippy allows and promotes daft irrelevant threads. I lost my priviledges on the Excel forum after a minor transgression............... Anybody need any help with Excel spreadsheets ?

    Too cold.

    A 5 litre insulated picnic box with 4 bricks heated to 200 deg C in your oven and a piece of ply drilled with 7453 1mm holes to stand the pint on should sort the problem. If the premises are cask marque or CAMRA recommended just tell the manager.....

    Anyone use yeast nutrient?

    I use a tip of nutrient and a tip of vitamin C in my starters - supplementary question - can you use wine nutrient in beer ?

    Too cold.

    Years ago I drank with a lovely American man in London. He would order 2 pints of Guinness and put one on the hearth in front of a blazing log fire. He got some very strange looks.....

    Overbuilding yeast and yeast count

    I use all of the slurry from a 22 litre batch for the next batch, and so on, 4 times max, restart with sediment from one of the bottles in batch 1 and use the next 2 resultant slurries. Of course, in around 40 years, I will have to buy another packet of yeast.

    I'm Struggling

    I also think long walks, whatever the weather will help, preferably with someone else. Cook somethink different every week. And this is contentious, take 2 grams (2000 mg) of vitamin C every day. Finally start baking sourdough bread. Finally (2) turn off Facebook, Twitter, Instagram, etc.

    Why boil hops for 60 minutes ?

    Greetings all. As my beers all tend to end up "too" bitter, I was considering boiling for only 20 minutes. I have consulted Doctor Google, but have not discovered why, or if, 60 minutes is best.

    I know they "claim" to be the best. My recommendation is based on recent use in the last year, when I was temporarily unable to make full mash beers. They are "cheap" and make a very drinkable beer. With experience you will improve them eg with extra hops and crystal malt. Good luck.
