    Using Lactose for Sweetening

    I don’t know the Machanics of the compounds but I add it in the last couple of minutes of the boil when doing milk stouts and they always taste great. I scoop some wort out in a jug and pour in the lactose powder and mix, then just pour back in the kettle. I think mixing in hot wort is just...

    Hop plant pruning help

    Hi all I have two hop plants growing in the garden. After last years harvest I never cut back the vines. The reason for this is because they are relatively new plants and I read that to help the root system get the most out of the seasonal sunshine it’s was best to pick the cones rather than...

    Pressure Barrel for lager?

    I guess it will stop the froth when u pour, but bottom line is it will be still under carbonated.. lesson learned 🙄

    Pressure Barrel for lager?

    Iv got a lager in my pressure barrel at the moment (S30) but it will be the first and last time. Iv found it to be under carbonated and because I doubled up the elastic on the pressure release I’m pulling froth monsters out of the tap.

    MAGNUM wine kit: Dead still at 1.014 – give up or EC1118?

    Surprised by that EC1118 is usually a beast. Your SG isn’t too high for 1118 so should have zero’d that out.. Worth checking your hydrometer in water, it maybe giving you a false reading 🤷🏼‍♂️, check the use by date on packet 🤷🏼‍♂️,, check ur juice packet maybe some unfermentable sweetener in...

    Leaky barrel

    Wow I didn’t know that ,, so a pressure barrel, the beer will absorb the the co2 ?

    Leaky barrel

    They just pressurise the head space in the keg, which in turn holds the carbonation in your beer from priming.. After you pull a good few pints the pressure will drop and ul get a “glug back” as the tap will draw air back into the barrel,, this is when you recharge with a new cartridge. 👍🏽

    Chocolate and coffee milk stout. GH recipe with a few extras thrown in 🍫 ☕️

    Leaky barrel

    Literally a second. All you can do is fill the head space of the barrel. The barrel as a safety pressure release in the brass pin valve, so don’t worry u can’t over pressurise it… You can always re-prime with sugar and seal and restart the priming process

    Best all-in-one brewing system

    I started with the same set up as you,, burco, BIAB, and a DIY circulating pump and was making good beer. Found a good deal on a 2nd hand grainfather G30 on EBay.. Best thing I bought !, a great bit of kit,, less mess, faster brew days and the grainfather app as 1000s of recipes that Bluetooth...

    Did a pseudo lager with the NovaLager yeast, 100% pilsner, 20g saaz..not a big lager drinker but it’s actually not that bad for a grain to glass in 3 weeks.
