    If you were to start over from scratch, what would you....

    Exactly the same happened to me. I used to brew 23L batches with Grainfather, but was scared to experiment as 23L of so-so beer was a bit daunting. The burden of lugging massive weights of liquid around and the pain of bottling day started to make me not want to brew. I ended up selling up. But...

    How to brew lagers?

    Thanks. That looks like a good schedule. I saw the Brulosphy article which found no difference using shorter lagering, interesting stuff. But I thought that for my 1st ever lager in my new fermentation fridge I would go traditional with a long lagering at 4C. Maybe for my next lager I will try a...

    Oneconcept / Hopfengott 30l Mash Kettle mash kettles

    I love it. Really good quality and easy to use. I have the 15L version. I did ditch the filter that came with it, after watching a YouTube vid, and having trouble getting the boiled wort out after my first brew. It clogged up really quick and took me ages scraping at the filter with a paddle to...

    I don't think it has a barb. Just a quick fit thing to attach the pump. Would be pretty easy to replace it with a barb tho.

    How to brew lagers?

    It's still in the fermenter. These lagers take a long time don't they? Still got another 4 weeks lagering.

    Easy Keg 5L

    I think there might be some left. I had it on the lowest setting and just blasted a bit in when the pouring got slow. It still makes a noise when I open up the valve.

    Easy Keg 5L

    Quick question re the Party Star: I've finished my 1st keg using this (a shop bought keg of Ghost Ship) All went well, last pint was maybe a little flat. What do I do now? Do I just pull the whole thing out of the empty keg, with the CO2 still attached, or do I take the CO2 off 1st?

    Adding raspberries

    Yes, some people use less though. I had a freezer full of raspberries from the allotment.

    Adding raspberries

    Yes sorry you are right. Typo. I used 100g raspberries per litre, so 800g in my 8L batch.

    Adding raspberries

    I love a raspberry wheat. When I was brewing one last year there was a really good thread on this forum that helped me a lot. Lots of discussion about the amount of raspberries to add and how to add them. https://www.thehomebrewforum.co.uk/threads/planning-a-raspberry-wheat.88391/ I went for...

    Easy Keg 5L

    Thanks @Chippy_Tea, but I think I'll just persevere with this long thread, so everything is in one place. I am up to page 16 now (circa 2015), and it has been very informative. I have question for people who use these kegs with (or without) the excellent looking "Party Star Deluxe Tap": Do you...

    Wow, those Dark Farm 5L kegs look amazing.

    Easy Keg 5L

    91 pages on using 5L mini-kegs? @Chippy_Tea any chance of a pinned summary / guide on how to use mini-kegs? I'm off to start reading from page 1.
