    Flanders Red Ale Greg Hughes Recipe - Hive Mind Input Appreciated

    Thank you, that’s good to hear. I am just following the recipe and I agree about the racking. The reason I did it is the barrels were new and only 10 litre capacity (so a not ideal surface area to vol ratio) so didn’t want it to be in them for longer than a month. So you believe fermentation...

    Flanders Red Ale Greg Hughes Recipe - Hive Mind Input Appreciated

    Dear Hive Mind Background I would appreciate some help here. I started this batch (my first foray into sour beer with very funky yeast, Wyeast 3763 Roselare blend) at the end of March. Fermented for 1 month (FG of 1012) then transferred to barrel for 1 month, then back into an FV for 2...

    Trump v Biden.

    I am not religious but I like the succinctness of “Amen”.

    Anyone spotted any black Friday Home Brew deals

    That’s a great deal. I got the same kit in the same promotion last year.

    Infected?

    Also sounds good to me. Indeed leave it for a fortnight before checking the SG.

    Broadband FTTC, FTTP, Gfast etc.

    I am with Virgin too. They will walk the price up in time and you’ll likely persuade yourself that you need those blistering speeds so unlikely to switch.

    Broadband FTTC, FTTP, Gfast etc.

    I am spoilt getting circa 400Mbs to the door. Sure beats 1999 AOL penny a minute dial-up at a blistering 28Kps

    Is two bottles of wine night every other day too much?

    Do what works for you. I cut down by abstaining during Mon to Wed, having a cpl on a Thurs or not at all. Drink what I want Fri and Sat then just a couple on Sunday to ease back into decaf tea and water of an evening. It works for me. As others have remarked, when you do drink, the...

    Cheap Inkbird on Amazon

    Return it, especially if from Amazon. Great concept just a real shame they don't pay their fair share of tax...

    Cheap Inkbird on Amazon

    Just spied the same and was going to flag it here! I have the wi-fi version as well as the standard one. Great bit of kit.

    Hop spider or not?

    I also have a GF G30 and bought a hopspider just after I bought the GF. Think I used the hopspider twice. I found it a pain to clean and just not convinced it saves time on clean up. Never had a blocked pump in 39 brews (to date) and I like the idea of the hops being properly immersed in the...

    What did you brew today?

    Nice smooth brew day. Japanese Rice Lager came out a lovely light (l’eau de p**s) colour and nice and clear. First time using Sorachi Ace. Overshot the OG by 5 points but I’ll get over it.
