    I used Wyeast 1469 for my last batch of bitter in Feb/March, It likes plenty of headspace in the fermentation vessel.

    d-rest advice please

    My understanding is that the diacetyl rest takes place after Final Gravity has been reached and needs to be up around 18-20c to allow the yeast to absorb the diacetyl.

    We rolled this our for little homebrew festival a few weeks ago and then I put the keg in the keezer and left it for a month. It was good at the festival, its cracking now. My plum porter.

    Mango Milkshake IPA disappointment

    I can see a couple of potential culprits. 1. Did you add the mango to primary? Apparently the trub/yeast can interfere with the flavour. For best results add the fruit to a new FV and siphon the beer on top as you would for batch priming. Ideally with something like this you want to be airless...

    Plum Porter

    It worked really well, I took the keg along with some others to a party last weekend and it came out for a bit and the consesus was it was good. For secondary I stewed the plums in the same way I did for the boil, I brought some flavouring to add at bottling but it didn't need it.

    Christmas Beer - adapting from a kit

    I've tweaked the order a bit, from my reading about adding secondary additions, batch priming etc its better to put the addition in the bucket and the beer to it. The Sugar & Orange Juice are optional, I'd did it that way when I added the 2nd batch of plums to my porter and I'm very happy with...

    Christmas Beer - adapting from a kit

    I'd get another bucket, if you are doing stuff like this having a secondary vessel is advisable. You can dump stuff into primary, but there are risks around dead yeast interacting badly with things like fruit additions. I've done a couple of fruity beers this year and I've always moved it to a...
