    Grainfather filter

    I find it fine. I know some people say they have a problem with it moving during the boil. I've not noticed this with my system. I still use the Grainfather filter as well and it can't be knocked off as it's covered by the false bottom. It's like everything in brewing. People find what works...

    Grainfather filter

    As @MagnusTS says, as long as you got it into the fermenter any extra crud should settle out. I use a hop spider and the Robobrew false bottom in my Grainfather. Usually add about 100g of hop pellets in the boil and even with the spider I still end up with 1/2" of hop debris on the false bottom.

    Show us your glass

    She hit it with the kettle while it was in the sink. I must have had a few too many last night as I normally leave them on the board to clean in the morning.

    B******d It’s usually the missus that does this to my glasses, but not this time. One of my daughters left me a note saying she smashed it while filling the kettle. I wouldn’t be that bothered but it was my dads old glass. Only got about 40 glasses left now.

    What are you drinking tonight 2020 (part two)

    It does mate. Fermented @12c with notty for 2 weeks and then just treated like an ale. First time I’ve us saaz and I’ll definitely do it again. Put the whole 100g of Saaz in the boil at different times. Was worried it might be a bit too much, but it’s quite a mild taste. Think next time I might...

    Grainfather pump filter in Robobrew?

    The inlet on the pump is 14.5mm (it's actually a hexagon shape so I've measured at the widest part). The tube attached to the filter that goes over the inlet is 13mm internal measurment. Don't forget you can use a stainless jubilee clip if needed. I actually use the Robobrew false bottom along...

    Mini Keg help

    Either way should be good. I screw the co2 bulb in while everything is attached to the mini keg. That way if the valve gets moved a bit by accident whilst screwing the bulb in you're not going to lose any co2. I suppose the different each manufacturers setup are slightly different to each...

    Curry...!!

    Most of it’s in the freezer, 16 ziplock bags x 330 ml each. I made a massive vindaloo on Wednesday which is in the freezer as well. Good job my wife loves curry, let’s me get away with murder. I’ve tried lots of different base gravy’s. The Misty R one is the best I’ve tried.
