    Secret Santa Review Thread 2021!

    My second SS, a Festive Fireside Ale at 5.4%. A slight hiss when opening and a beautiful colour, it is actually slightly lighter than in the picture. Hints of aniseed on the nose. A good fruity taste, it’s a cracking winter beer. I really enjoyed this one. Thanks Santa

    A nice Irish Stout at 4.8%. Poured really well with a good head. A really balanced flavour with a treacle/ caramel aftertaste. Mouthfeel was just right for me, some Stouts almost feel like they need chewing, this was not one of them. I’d definitely drink again. Thanks Santa.

    Advice on using Grainfather Conical Fermenter & Glycol Chiller

    I never even knew this existed, that’s even easier than back-flushing pipework

    Advice on using Grainfather Conical Fermenter & Glycol Chiller

    I have the same setup and don’t use hop socks.

    Advice on using Grainfather Conical Fermenter & Glycol Chiller

    I have this with my fermenter, sometimes the hop material blocks the holes in the outlet pipework. I normally let the transfer pipework fill with liquid, then lift it vertical so the fluid level in the pipe is higher than that in the fermenter. The fluid then backflushes into the fermenter...

    NEIPA turned out clear

    I completely agree on it not being crystal clear. Your description of it being leas murky than the style is spot on. I’ll ignore the appearance and enjoy the taste.
