    Speed Up Carbing?

    Hi, So I’ve finally got myself to the Bottling stage (I’m a terrible procrastinator) and I’m just wondering if there’s a way to speed up Carbing. I put a Teaspoon of Sugar in my bottles but that will take a few days to work and I don’t really have the time, is there a way I can still do this...

    18 days and still fermenting?!?

    18 days and still fermenting?!?

    I’m doing a Lager Kit and even though the instructions say takes between 8 - 10 days I’ve left it in a little bit longer to make sure it’s defo done. Take a reading yesterday and it was 1.010 AND what looked like bubbles still in it. Does this mean it’s still fermenting and how much longer...

    Beer Finings and Flavouring together?

    My latest batch is almost done. Was going to use Beer Finings but also have some Mangrove Jacks Flavour enhancer. Can I use both together with no trouble or should I use 1 x and wait 24 x Hours?!?

    What did you brew today?

    Hello Gentlemen! Long time no see wink... Work’s been getting in my way I’m afraid. Brewed today a Brewmaker Lager Kit. Threw in 3 x KG of sugar and looking at an OG of 1.064......Possibly over 7.5% :laugh8: This will be interesting.......

    Would it be worth me investing?

    So I came across This Basically my understanding is that I buy a CO2 bottle, attach it and then it carbs all the Beer? Will one bottle carb all the beer? Would it last for multiple batches? The only problem would be that the Beer would be warm or could I pour it direct into bottles and store...

    Forum Meet up

    I’d be game for this Chief. I have no home brew currently to drink but I’d be more than happy to chat to you. The world hasn’t ended yet, just got a bit darker than we’d imagined but we will prevail in the end!

    How long can I store my Beer?

    That’s good then 😊 Thanks Chief, she has the classic Temperature and Cold. I’m considered a “Key Worker” so have been working but I was still struggling. 14 days quarantine and going nowhere is going to drive me potty 🤦🏻‍♀️

    How long can I store my Beer?

    Apologies in advance if this is in the wrong place. Just brewed a Lager Kit and the Mrs has started showing Symptoms 🤦🏻‍♀️ I’m going to be in isolation for two weeks so won’t be touching my Beer. It should be alright in the Bucket right?

    Agave 6.4% Lager

    I’ve done a lager Brewkit but added 2 kg of Sugar instead of the 1. If all goes well it should finish at or around 6.4%. Was 5.91% after 1 week so giving it another to hopefully bump it up. Was thinking of maybe flavouring it with Agave just before bottling. Will this taste alright etc or is...

    Funny Things seen in Supermarkets

    Just got back from Tesco and after yesterday’s announcement it’s come as no surprise that everyone’s raiding all the beer. What made me laugh though was everyone’s had all the Lager, Cider etc but there’s loads of Ale’s etc left 😂 Anyone else seeing anything funny/daft on your trips out?

    Is my yeast dead?

    I noticed today it had a bit of a foamy top appearing. I just want to get it bottled and ready to drink lol 😂 Was in Tesco’s today and I was VERY lucky to get a few cans of Stella!

    Is my yeast dead?

    Right done an FG Reading and it‘s at 1.010, the instructions say that when it gets to 1.06 it’s done. What do I do? lol 😂
