    Hey Guys, bottled a Lager on Monday and used a Carbing Drop for each bottle……..when will I start seeing some action? So far the bottles aren’t starting to firm up or anything so am getting a bit worried. Was hoping to have Drinkable Beer for Xmas

    Just wrong?

    I’m about halfway through the brewing process. I’ve been looking at ways to cut down Bottling and it looks like it may cut times down considerably (Bottling Tree, Bottle Rinser, Carbing Drops) Will have to let you know how it goes

    “Lively” Coopers Brew

    Right so I pitched it last Friday night…’s died down quite a bit, but it’s still occasionally bubbling. Did have a peek earlier and the Krausen’s gone, that sounds about right yeah?

    Yes, no buggering about lol. On the instructions it reckons 10 x Days to brew. I reckon that may be spot on to be fair

    4 x days in and I really want to open it up and have a mooch. It won’t harm it to open it up and have a peek will it?

    “Lively” Coopers Brew

    Hey all, so this is my first Brew after taking a bit of a long break. When I was brewing in the past I had an FV without a hole for an airlock so I used to leave the lid on loosely so air could escape. I pitched this Brew Friday night and maybe it’s because I’ve got an airlock on so notice it...

    How to make Turbo Cider.

    I’m on another group on Facebook and they said if you’re making Turbo only use half a sachet of yeast. I’m going to try a batch next Summer but so far haven’t been very successful

    Just got the notification from DPD my Kit’s on the way! Soooooooooo excited! Hoping to pitch it tonight, worst case tomorrow morning before work. I’m all prepped I think, the only thing I’m not 100% on is how much yeast Nutrient do I need to put in? Yes, these are the strange things I’m...

    So do I! If I put it on this weekend, I should have drinkable Beer by Christmas right? It’s nice to get back to doing all of this, I was just going through it all last night and it’s reminded me off all the hassle of setup but it should all be ok

    Getting back into the Hobby…..

    Just bought a whole new setup today. Picked up a Coopers European Lager Kit so we’ll see how that goes. Spending too much on cans so it’ll be nice to go back and brew my own stuff again. Brew2Bottle say it’ll be 2 - 5 days delivery so should have it started for next Weekend

    How Long do Carbing Drops Take?

    Got some Carbing Drops with my last Order. Was going to put the Beer on this Sunday which should take me till the 16th, was going to leave it for a week to maybe clear (might add some Finings) and then may bottle it on the 26th but just wondering if that gives me enough time to properly carb up...

    Lemon and Lime Beer

    So going back a few years I had Lemon and Line Beer in Germany which was great. A few years later Becks brought it to the UK but it didn’t last long because I guess people weren’t buying it :?: I was wondering how I’d go about recreating that in terms of home brewing. If I waited until my Beer...

    Speed Up Carbing?

    Hi, So I’ve finally got myself to the Bottling stage (I’m a terrible procrastinator) and I’m just wondering if there’s a way to speed up Carbing. I put a Teaspoon of Sugar in my bottles but that will take a few days to work and I don’t really have the time, is there a way I can still do this...

    18 days and still fermenting?!?

    I’m doing a Lager Kit and even though the instructions say takes between 8 - 10 days I’ve left it in a little bit longer to make sure it’s defo done. Take a reading yesterday and it was 1.010 AND what looked like bubbles still in it. Does this mean it’s still fermenting and how much longer...
