    An interesting lager....

    I’m really liking the fullers frontier, but getting it from supermarkets lately is becoming near impossible?

    Coopers Oz lager

    Sorry I’m not familiar with a self priming siphon? and it’s been a long time since I used one too. Also I’ve never used any kind of filters, i just made sure to not to stir up the yeast at the bottom, so I moved my siphon down as the beer level was going down

    Coopers Oz lager

    I’ve done this same kit myself ( my first ever actually ) and a few more after ; ). I always brewed it with the coopers brew enhancer 2 as it always come out good, definitely leave it in the fermenter for at least 2 weeks and try and keep the temperature around 20 if using the kit yeast? This...

    Mick Dundee’s Kegerator Build

    Great work there and you can always add on extras as and when. I did the same as MM with the gas lines, 3/8 from the regulator reduced to 3\16 then back to 3\8 going through the drain hole and it worked out perfect. But with all the different JG fittings it can become quite expensive, I’ll...

    First AG Brew Qs

    I’ve used the mangrove jacks California yeast a few times, i can’t remember what one it was exactly? But it’s perfectly normal to see yeast sitting on the top of the krausen and the FV as its a top fermenting yeast. Ive done a few Cali commons with this one and they turned out perfect after...

    PLAATO airlock for sale

    Hi. I’m selling a PLAATO airlock, I’m a magpie for gadgets but i still prefer my tilts. I bought this a couple weeks ago, tested it but just won’t use it! I can’t be dealing with getting extra wifi boosters and a separate iPod for tracking fermentation. Will also come with a PLAATO valve (never...

    Favourite can kits?

    I really enjoyed the festival golden stag kit and it’s not really bad value either, another was the coopers Mexican cerveza using their brew enhancer 2

    That’s not a problem at all. These are just taking up valuable room at the moment, the sooner they’re gone the better to be honest

    Grainfather conical fermenter and glycol chiller

    Thank you for your input, I actually put the question forward to David heath and he’s recommended a Plato valve?. I watched his review on this too, it seems to equalise the pressure and stop this suck back? It seems to simplify the whole process too,but to me its a whole new thing. Haha We’ll...

    Grainfather conical fermenter and glycol chiller

    Thank you. So I’m guessing that if I was to cold crash/lager I’m going to need to use the bag option still? It’s not an issue for me as ill try the link you posted. I haven’t received the fermenters or chiller yet, I only bought them Thursday;-). I had to save for this for a long time so I’m...

    Fermzilla v1 and v2

    Hi all. So after much debate, I’ve decided to buy myself a temperature controlled setup. So I have 2 fermzillas for sale. As standard never used for pressure fermenting. I’m hoping for £50 for the both? You’ll need to buy the disconnects as the plastic ones I bought are a little chewed up! So...
