    Rob's Export porter

    Just making this one, cooling down through my home made chiller as I type. Cut the grain bill by about 5%, OG 1055ish. Added some Cascade and Hallertau that I had left, about 10g in total at the last 5 mins. Anyone made this?

    Can't you just use Golden Syrup, as it is inverted sugar?

    Cold crash and finings before kegging?

    I cold crashed my American IPA (first AG brew for about 15 years!) last week for 4 days, bottled 4 ltrs and kegged the rest (about 15ltrs) and it was really clear, even after dry hopping with pellets straight into the FV. Never tried this method before, looks like it won't any finings at all.

    Burco boiler Mash tun

    I made one using a 25ltr bucket and a kettle element pinched from a travel kettle. Made a false bottom with a sheet of perforated ss, and then modified it by fitting underneath the perf sheet with a splash protector thing (for a frying pan) and that fitted perfectly at the bottom of the (Wilco)...

    Bye Bye Braumeister?

    Yes, very very shiny, but very very expensive. I know home brewing isn't all about saving money by making your own beer, more the pleasure of brewing something as good as the commercial brewers, but to me, spending that sort of money on home brew equipment is nuts.

    My first brew for years!! Bonn Place Brewing Mr. Harry’s Pig Tale Extra Pale

    Made my first AG brew in about 15 years today. Bought my ingredients from crossmyloof. Used Simcoe in place of Pacific Jade, similar alpha acid. Everything went hunky dory, pitched yeast at about 27 degrees, a bit high I know, but stuck it in the cellar so hopefully ok. At the top of the celler...
