    Where do you store your malt?

    I've got two of these also, but I order my grain in 5kg bags so they fit in nicely and are easier to handle. Open bags go in the freezer with a plastic clip holding them shut.

    Cml voss

    Maybe it's just yer luck, @Cheshire Cat - I'm going to make another APA this week so maybe a longer cold crash will help clarity.

    Cml voss

    I've had to use Quick Clear in both CML Voss brews I've done.

    Beginners Guide to Water Treatment (plus links to more advanced water treatment in post #1)

    Thanks @strange-steve - I'm trying to use up what I've got and then put in a bigger order later on to build up stock, hence the 40% Munich. I have some biscuit malt that I could add to up the toasty/bready notes... I'll have a think about it.

    Beginners Guide to Water Treatment (plus links to more advanced water treatment in post #1)

    Hey folks. I'm looking to brew a Dunkel in the next few days and I'm confused by which water profile I should be looking at - it's technically a lager, but it's also dark and malty, so I'm not sure what I should be looking at. Any advice?

    Kveik

    My latest two brews (my normal APA and Munich Helles recipies) have been in the keg a fortnight, and I have to say that I'm very impressed. I used the CML dried Voss in both, and while I feel it suits the APA much better, the lager is very good considering how young it is. Neither cleared...

    Longest period in fermentor?

    I left a beer in the fermentor for 56 days when my daughter was in hospital, it was absolutely fine.

    PureBrew Starbrite and Britewort.... or just a whirlflock tablet?

    I normally just use Irish moss in the boil, and cold crash to clear up beers. However, the two Kveik beers I made recently didn't want to clear up at all so I used Starbrite and it really worked well.

    Cost of brewing equipment and ingredients in the UK

    Chest freezer from Facebook marketplace for £30, no brand taps from eBay for £70, timber for the collar was £20 from a local merchant, gas was £45 and £5 refills, regulator was maybe £50, can't remember where from. JG connectors and beer/gas line weren't that much, jubilee clips, wood stain, no...

    Hopcat 50L for £399 with hop spider, jacket, chiller and whirlpool arm

    I really like it, it's simple to use and makes what I think is damn fine beer. Only issue is that the filter that plugs into the pump inlet is far too small and I had to make a bigger one, but other than it it's plain sailing.

    Cost of brewing equipment and ingredients in the UK

    As Leon said, grain isn't expensive (IMHO, I've not benchmarked against grain costs elsewhere) and I built a 4 keg Keezer for probably £250 or so. Kegs are £52 each refurbished from The Homebrew Company in packs of 3, and unless they're ruined, never lose much value so think of them as an...
