    Fuggles Substitute for use in Butty Bach

    Cheers All. I'll give them a test - if no go then I'll maybe mix styrians with Willamette. Hopefully as it's for bittering, as long as they're not musty, then it'll be fine. Pat

    Fuggles Substitute for use in Butty Bach

    Doing a Butty Bach and need Fuggles for the boil; Dug out my fuggles from the freezer and they are 2017 pellet, so I'm not confident to use them. I have, however got unopened 2019 Stayrian Goldings which I believe are Slovakian Fuggles, and are at least genetically similar. Is this a viable sub...

    iSpindel - digital WiFi hydrometer

    Looking to do the same thing (replace STC 1000 with something more connectable). It will likely be another esp8266 board like nodeMCU or a Raspberry PI. The former will just run native arduino code to switch the two relays (heating and cooling) - the trick is to get it to use the iSpindel...

    iSpindel - digital WiFi hydrometer

    Will any BAT43 diode do or is the threshold current (15 or 200mA) important? Pat

    Adding Blackberries to a beer question.

    Wild beer do some great beers - Tepache, Modus and Smoke 'n Barrels are great examples (to me) of where beer can go if you stray from the Bible, go through Randy Mosher and out the other side! Ok, there are a few I'm not keen on, but when you get something as brilliant as Tom Yum Gose, you have...

    Building a new boiler...

    I wouldn't worry about the lid insulation too much - its your kettle right? In which case you need to boil with the lid of anyway to reduce DMS and other volatile nasties. Nice job on the rest of it though! I'd experiment with the pick-up tube though - it really needs to be as big a bore as you...
