    Filtering hoppy beers into bottling bucket

    If you have the ability, I'd recommend a cold crash for a few days before bottling

    Toning my beer ABV down

    I do exactly that. Just after making a blonde ale which should be less than 4%, can sit in the garden and knock it back all day. Also have a 6% red citra ipa bottled if i fancy wrecking the house. I'd really like to make kölsch on a regular basis but I haven't worked out the ins and outs of...

    Anyone got a recipe for an ale that is in the style of a lager.

    Great advice on here thanks guys. Feel like I'm building up to the challenge of a lager slowly, doing Biermunchers centennial blonde atm! I fancy lagering in a keg so maybe I can afford that setup later in the year

    Safe Brewing

    Goggles for splashing VWP around? Or just be careful I guess

    To spigot or not to spigot (bottling question)

    Hi, Completed my first bottling day and reading up on it beforehand, I was kicking myself for not getting a spigot on the bottling bucket. I used an autosiphon with wand attached as that's what the HBS had in. Aside from a little trouble getting the flow started it went surprisingly well! I did...

    Disapointed today

    I found brewers friend calculations are pretty spot on. I went from 19 to 13 litre, welcome to the party pal!

    Spray Malt

    Try and taste it, it will weld your gob shut. So tasty though

    Induction hob

    Hey Anneon did you go for the 40cmx40cm? Already have a brew builder 50L pot and really interested in these buffalo induction hobs.

    This looks really interesting Nicks, I must have a more detailed look at this when I get a chance! I might actually just brew it up the way you've done it actually, dont mind a bit of a darker beer.

    As I just did an all citra last time (zombie dust of sorts), would you recommend another hop make up that works? for a change!

    That looks majestic my friend! Many thanks, I have safale s04 but can always buy another yeast. I could maybe do all grain BIAB as a first if I can source a bag pretty soon!

    Indeed I do! I have some extra light DME, I have melanoidin, carapils, crystal 60, munich malt (5-10), and a munich malt which is 60-80 ebc which i bought by mistake! Hops: citra, centennial, cascade, Bavarian mandarin, ekuanot, enigma

    Anyone got a recipe for an ale that is in the style of a lager.

    I got about 5 weeks to get a brew ready and was hoping to do a blonde ale or something refreshing like a lager. I have temp control and was going to do BIAB or mini mash. Any recipes or pointers for something like this would be greatly appreciated! I do intend to brew lagers eventually but I...
