    An amateur's keezer

    There seems to have been a glut of keezer/ kegerator posts recently and having previously been put off by a complete lack of practical skills I had not considered it. Anyway suddenly realised actually I have nearly all the parts some of which are not being used so let's give it a go. I'm quite...

    Bakers yeast alcohol tolerance

    See my previous post in this thread - they do not meet legal definition of spirits in the first place so as you are not producing spirits this guidance would be irrelevant.

    Bakers yeast alcohol tolerance

    I am not a lawyer but if you trace back through the legislation then looking at it I think it might turn on the definition of "spirit" which is derived from EU law. See Article 2 of this : Concentrating by freezing would...

    Eat out to help out discount scheme

    Was meant to be going to Greece yesterday but canned it in the end so as we would have been eating out of a night am going to go out for lunch or dinner every day the offer is on and try and get round most of the local restaurants. It will basically be £40 off each meal for us.

    Shank Compatibility

    That seems to be the case with mine too. My original flow control taps came on a slow boat from China complete with 2" shanks via eBay IIRC. At some point I ordered longer shanks probably also ebay and as these fit ok didn't give it a second thought. It's only now that I am having a go at a...

    Shank Compatibility

    Hi All Does anyone know anything about the compatibility of shank with different taps? I have a Krome dispense stout tap from Brew UK and need a longer shank. I assumed they would be universal but noticed that the shank I bought for my regular taps are different and don't fit the stout one...

    Starting all grain brewing after 45 years rest. Aiming for a Hophead style ale.

    The Amarillo is a misprint and they don't dry hop. I've done quite a bit of research see my post earlier in this thread.
