    Saving yeast

    My first attempt at saving yeast. It's from a wheat beer using WB-06, all grain. I've seen photos of saving yeast but they all seem to have 3 layers, whereas mine has obviously got 2. It was a 12l batch and after racking into secondary fv, I just swirled around the trub at the bottom and dumped...

    Where to buy bottles from

    I use the green Koparberg bottles from my local, they are more than happy to get rid of them. And the labels just fall off after a quick soak 👍

    Homebrew Beer Myths

    Homebrew Beer Myths

    I once removed the label from a bottle of Heinekien, glued one of my own labels on it and gave it to my mate who would only drink lager. He was very impressed and said that it tasted just like a commercial lager. He told everyone what a fantastic home brewer I was! I never told him 🙂

    Drinking sediment

    First time I've seen that thread and as I was reading it my missus said "what are you laughing at" when I told her, she replied "isn't it about time you grew up?" Have to say that I have been drawing my state pension for quite a few years now. I'm still laughing at some of the replies 🤣😄🍺😳😂

    Unusual ingredients

    I had to check the date after reading "bird mix from Poundland" Really? I'm interested, can you post the recipe? I only tend to do 10l all grain brews now.

    Straining hops

    My second attempt at all grain (?) brewing. I made a small batch, 10L, and added 25grms. of hops at the end of the boil. I placed a straining bag in the FV and poured the wort into it and it took ages to strain, in fact after about 15/20 mins. hardly anything filtered through. I bought two...

    How to reduce alcohol content.

    That's what I am concerned about. I really made this to be a summer beer but made a mistake in the ingredients. Thanks for the reply.

    How to reduce alcohol content.

    Is it possible to reduce the alcohol content of my kit beer? It's a wilko Cervesa kit that I have tweaked and at the present time, after 13 days in the FV, it's about 5.2%. I was aiming for it to finish at about 4.5%ish. The FV has 21 litres in it. Is it possible just to add water? Any views on...
