    Anna's Brewdays

    Did you ever see my thread DIY false bottom for Burco @DocAnna ? No good with pellets, but works fine with leaf athumb..

    What are you drinking tonight 2022?

    Thanks @Tess Tickle and it worked really well to do a side-by-side comparison of the two beers. I got a bit more head on them when I poured (mine is on the left). I don’t mind saying that yours is overall much closer to the style: better colour and cleaner flavour (and an excellent label!)...

    Swing top bottles

    Never had a problem with them. I do replace all the rubber seals with silicone ones though and I think they are better.

    Which fridge for kegerator?

    Have a look at my kegerator build thread: TETB kegerator build I used the Curry's "Essentials" CUL55W20 larder fridge which I bought new online for £150 plus £10 delivery. You can read more about it including the internal dimensions in my other thread.

    Sounds like you need to talk to your man at the water company - they will be able to get acid for sure… especially if it means they can help with your “quality testing”…

    Wow that’s quite unusual water… high chloride (but that’s not necessarily a bad thing). High sodium too, which is not so helpful.

    Robust lingering bitterness

    Very interesting! I got the BU:GU ratio straight from the GH recipe... BUT the problem (having just checked my detailed notes from the brew-day) was that my efficiency was WAY down on normal, leading to a lower than expected OG.

    Robust lingering bitterness

    Good lord no - quite the opposite: I thought your judging remarks were bang on, and precisely the reason I entered: i.e. to get fair and objective feedback athumb.. Getting f/b from friends and swaps is pretty hopeless because everyone is WAY too kind. You did a great job running that comp -...
