    Keezer for collection in London SE5: £90

    Timothy Taylor Golden Best recipe?

    Can't find any TT Golden Best recipes on the internet (Golden Best; not Best Bitter). Any ideas? I'm going to try something halfway between Landlord and Banks's Original. I'm particularly interested in yeast recommendations. Thanks!

    First dry hop attempt

    How do people dry hop? I have a simple two Young's buckets with taps system. After primary, straight to batch prime in the second bucket via some food grade tube. Then straight into the bottles via little bottler. Works well for me so far and I don't want to overcomplicate things. I'd like...

    Vinegary smell after primary

    Recently bottled my second all-grain brew. Looking for clues as to why the primary fermenter smelt so vinegary. Don't have logbook with me so forgive lack of detail. Brewed Burton Bridge Bitter in a standard plastic setup with fermenting fridge set to 20C. Everything went as expected. All...

    Fermentation fridge progress and questions

    I'd be grateful for help with my nearly-finished fermentation fridge. This is (honestly) the first bit of DIY of any sort I've ever done. I've never even put up shelves before: 1. Where is safe to drill a hole for the tube heater mains cable? 2. What's the best way to drill a hole big enough...

    Hi I have almost all the equipment ready to go for my first mash brew including a home-built fermenting fridge! The only thing I know absolutely nothing about is tubing/connectors. I don't have an outside tap and plan to brew outside, so need to get mains water from the kitchen. I have an...

    Hello from SE5

    Am a new brewer in Camberwell, South London. Have been to a couple of the London ABA meetings and helped an experienced member on a brew day. Have decided to go full mash straightaway. Foolish perhaps. I have a mash tun and have ordered a fermenting bin and boiler. My mentor assures me that...
