    Yeast starters and use of glucose

    I've had great results just repitching slurry with my recent lager ventures. I dump the initial trub after a week and when fermentation has finished I just rinse the remaining trub with cooled boiled water and pop it in a big flask. Pour off the excess liquid after 24 hours in a fridge and I'm...

    St00s Br00 Days

    Pressure transferred my Pale Ale for forum the competition last night, I'll give it a couple of days to clear up and then taste it to see if it's worthy. I sampled a Pale of mine that I really wasn't overly impressed with when I made it as the Kveik I used had a "Belgian" character to it. As...

    I used to do this, but if I want to add keg finings and/or ascorbic acid I need to pop them in before purging.

    TapiItGood Digital Beer List Sofware

    As a Plaato keg owner I was looking for a way to display the levels on the flat screen TV my mate gave me for the Brewing Garage. Web searches brought up a few suggestions, some attractive and some more geared towards commercial options. After some Facebook recommendations I settled on...

    May 22 Competition - American Pale Ales

    I don't think my Tilt is reporting correctly. I think it's likely the size of the krausen messing with it. I'll leave it a week and take a hydrometer reading. Cutting it fine mind!

    Brewing mistakes you really wish you'd avoided...

    I also put the Spunding valve on my liquid out post on the Fermzilla, that was maybe 3 or 4 brews ago.

    Brewing mistakes you really wish you'd avoided...

    Oh, I threw away a part of the malt pie whilst emptying the spent grain once.

    Brewing mistakes you really wish you'd avoided...

    1) Not doing brew prep the day before 2) Being blasé about water amounts 3) Overcrushing the grain 4) Adding fruit to beer 5) Ignoring out of date yeasts 6) Forgetting to put the temp probe in the SWH and spargeing with boiling water (fore the record it was fine) 7) Forgetting to turn valves off...
