    Verdant Putty

    This is my method (if I'm understanding your question right): After the cold crash to 14deg the yeast will all drop to the bottom, turn the handle to close the valve (I don't ferment under pressure btw). remove the jar and dump the yeast (or save it if you're going to re-use), clean and...

    Verdant Putty

    Thanks for sharing, have attached my draft too (hope it works). One thing I have worked on with Verdant brews is water profile. Getting chloride to c 230ppm and being c 10-15x what the sulphate is really helps create the thick and smooth mouthfeel. You'll see this on the recipe. If you don't...

    DIPA Failure - Wheat/Oats?

    Thought I would post about the results of this one for anyone who's interested (pic attached). I ended up with a 7.2% beer as the Lallemand Kveik yeast attenuated to 85% and so went from 1.064 to 1.009. It's quite a crisp beer, much more than my other efforts using Lallemand Verdant yeast, and...

    DIPA Failure - Wheat/Oats?

    Thanks so much for all the replies, really appreciate it. There's definitely a few things for me to look at again here and the alpha/ vs beta is not something I've been doing in my IPA recipes with oats and wheat, so could be a big contributing factor. In answer to some of the qn's: Temp: I...

    DIPA Failure - Wheat/Oats?

    Hi all, Wondering if anyone else has experienced very low mash efficiency when using oats and/or wheat and come up with any solution. I brewed a Verdant style DIPA today which I was hoping to be an 8% brew with an OG of 1.079. I've had previous poor efficiency when using oats and wheat but...

    Brewzilla 3.1.1 fine mesh screen for malt pipe

    For me I just make sure I add the grain slowly in stages to the water, giving a good stir as i go and making sure no clumps/dough balls. let it sit for 5/10 mins before putting the recirculation pump on slowly and making sure the water level doesn't rise too much so i know the water is actually...

    Verdant Yeast -1 pack or 2?

    Hi all I'm brewing a Verdant style IPA tomorrow to 6.5%, I have bought 2 packs of the Lallemand dry yeast but wondering whether I actually need them both. it's a 20l batch. Will I get better flavour from more yeast and it being less stressed? I'd rather pitch both packs if it will give a...

    Please help - Augustiner Helles clone with WLP860

    Hi everyone, Could really do with some help here, I am currently fermenting an all-grain Augustiner Helles brew with staggeringly slow results. The brew day went perfectly and I hit target gravity at 1.053, no issues to report at all, however it took 3 days for any bubbling to start in the...

    Juicy Session IPA - Mangrove Jack's review

    I'm with you on this, it was the 1st brew I did last summer in my keg/keezer set up and was just amazing. I've done 5 or so of the MJ kits and this is #1 by far. I'm doing AG now but this is defo one I want to go back to at some point. on the pink grapefruit, I think I ruined mine as it was...

    Drip Tray for Keezer

    After many months of kitchen roll on the garage floor to catch drips and overflow, and deliberating on how to attach a drip tray without making a mess of the keezer, I finally got round to doing something about it and thought I'd post the results in case others face a similar dilemma. Drip tray...

    Geterbrewed?

    I had this problem with an order that was way below the threshold, something like 3-4kg below but it still added the extra charge. I phoned them and they advised me to complete the order and to add a note (there is a free text box for this) pointing out the weight issue and asking for a refund...
