    What are you drinking tonight 2020 (part two)

    Neipa by Stewart Brewing from Lidl. 5.3% 440ml, £1.79. 32 IBUs Galaxy/Amarillo Stupendous stink of pineapple and grapefruit, taste hoppy but like a really raw dry hop that masks anything else. I got that rawness with Punk IPA. Then the follow up bitterness was quite harsh and I didn't like...

    Hop infusion... coffee machine?

    @strange-steve I got a Russell Hobbs 3008 from a car boot sale and I have been wondering about its potential after being reminded I had the thing from this : I case people don't know I did a dry hop vs hop tea near the start of fermentation vs near bottling and the start of ferment was...

    How important is the yeast?

    I'm guessing you won't be completely closing yourself off from anything else if you like it and expect that everyone should do the same? If anything else happens to exist in the brewing world - hops, grains, methods, will you whip your head to the side like a toddler in a high-chair presented...

    Cml voss

    The beers I've done with it just wouldn't clear with a cold crash but did clear in the bottles. This includes the wheat and the rice lager.

    That's modern life for you. I recently underwent a silmilar procedure. That's modern life for you. I recently underwent a similar procedure. IBU now means "I'm bloody unhappy about all this..." it goes on for quite a long time post ellipsis with quite a few valid points about merit...

    How important is the yeast?

    Because I do lots of split batches it's easy to tell the difference. If I'm drinking something from different batches then it's easy to see how you could think there isn't a difference. Think about what you want from brewing. Having the same old bitter again and again is not for me. It's...

    Brewmaster ben

    Ben's a really great lad and he'll still reply to drunken requests to come back. Sadly Homebrew Chris has also jacked it in.

    Bakers yeast alcohol tolerance

    Anyone know if Brewmeister - another Scottish company that started and immediately made a fractionally frozen beer, have a distiller's licence or had one back then?

    Bakers yeast alcohol tolerance

    So why didn't Brewdog need one for Tactical Nuclear Penguin and Sink the Bismark?

    Bakers yeast alcohol tolerance

    Ok, been delaying posting this to see if there was any fun. Loads of people will have seen it. If you jump to 16:40 Secue talks about talking to the head brewer at Brewdog about Sink the Bismark which is 61% from fractional freezing. No special license needed. Then shows him at Brewdog...

    Freezing hops

    No need to vacuum. Seal the bag with a iron and just bung it in there.

    Force carbonating with 16g co2 bulbs?

    For a beer brewed at 20c, 19 litres in a 19 litre corny, 2 litre pop bottle and wanting 2.3 vols of carbonation use 127.7g of sugar and the water in the bottle will get to 3.76% alcohol. I just use a spoon of bread yeast and a half spoon of nutrient. Throw in a load of trub instead if you...

    Yep - and I have nutient.

    Bakers yeast alcohol tolerance

    Not in Britian it isn't. Stlll doesn't make it illegal, and the nasties to their antidote are still in the same ratio as the original drink. You freeze distill beer, cider, wine then the amount of ethanol in there, the antidote to methanol poisoning, stays at the same ratio. It is not going...

    Induction plate

    Yes. Don't know which model numbers so you'd have to do some research. I know some places use the big buffalo ones for big heating jobs but the Tefal's for simmering.

    Induction plate

    I brew outdoors on the Buffalo touch. With 26 litres at 1500 watts it's boiling like crazy. That's in a plastic fermenter with insulation around it. The Buffalo hobs pulse at under 1500 watts, which means anything below that the boil is intermittent. Tefal hobs don't have this problem and...

    Spunding Without Spending

    If you'd prefer an easier way of using this spunding system you could attach a schrader valve (stem taken out) to the lid of vessel that can take the pressure, attach the pressure cooker stem to lid, then using a bit of pipe have a spundo-lock. It would look like this : 3/8" pipe also screws...

    Spunding Without Spending

    First of all go round your gran's or an elderly neighbours and steal the lid from their pressure cooker. The extra knowledge of knowing they'll be going "Well nobody would just steal the lid, we'll just keep looking." is an added bonus and tends to throw off them suspecting anything. Unscrew...
