well i made a chardonnay kit about 6 weeks ago and left the bottles in the fridge
i went to get one last night and it has white lumps in it some are kind of longer and curled up and others are just lumps
do u think it safe to drink or shall i bin it
didnt taste to bad when i tried it
just a quick question
if i get a cheap kettle to build a boiler doesnt iit keep turning of when the water as boiled like all kettles do, or does it not do it as its removed from the kettle
sorry not to good with the electrical side of life
when i got home i had
2 x 5 gallon fv
200 bottle caps
10 litre of apple juice
8 ltrs of grape
8 litre of orange
a bitter kit
a stout kit
and a lager kit
so i got the lager kit on and its smellin good
im just on my way back up to tesco for a granary loaf :whistle:
ok guys gonna make some cider and i got a pack of cider yeast
im gonna make a gallon of the cider first to see how it turns out
my question is do i add the whole pack of the yeast
im sure i read somewhere that u add the whole pack wether your doing a gallon or 5 gallons
just bought aload of grape, apple, tropical and orange juice the carton ones and it says on there from concentrate.
i cant remember seeing that on my last lot and wandered if it will still be ok to use for cider and wine
ive put on a youngs harvest pilsner, its been in the fv for 8 days and the gravity reading is at 1.000
there is a horrid smell coming from the fv when i take lid of i assum its the co2 kinda tingles ur nose
but the pilsner itself is rather dark in colour
now im not an expert and dont think...
im currently brewing a lager kit
its soon gonna be bottled
but someone said about bottle bombs which got me thinking
is it possible to add some stabilzer to stop the fermenting, if so could u still make it fizzy by adding sugar to the bottle.
and can u add campden tablets to get it to clear...
just wandered once the bubbles are stopped on a pinlsner kit how long is it safe to wait until it needs to be bottled
t the moment im down to 3 bubbles a min, so i think its not gonna be long till they need bottling
the reason i ask is my capper hasnt turned up yet and it may not be here till...
could some one please do me a great big favour
im after some glycerine but i havnt a clue as to which one to get
ive searched and at one point it came up with moisturiser
so please could some one post a link to it here for me
pretty please :pray:
has anyone brewed one of these
Young's Harvest Pilsner 40pt
if so im looking for a liitle advice
i think its stopped fermenting, the bubbles have virtually stopped and the hydrometer is at 1.004
but the beer is still rather cloudy and darker than i thought it would be
will it clear and...
well i guess this could go in here or the beer forum
but my question is
i forgot to take the sg when i made a wine
is there any way i can work out how much alcohol is in my wine now that ive bottled it
put my turbo on yesterday and checked it this mornig, on the top there seems to be a real thick head it looks like real thick heavy bubbles with white bits in does that sound normal, i will be able to get a pic of it this afternoon when the boss gets back with the camera.
i only ask as my lager...
well today my wine was ready for bottling, so i was up at the crack of dawn ( 8:30 lol )
and sterilised everything and started bottling.
i know its only a kit but gotta start some where
i tried it already and it tastes great so im well happy with the results
i just cant wait now for the wow...
well i finally got round to making a blackberry cider
i went and picked some blackberry's this morning
