    sodium metabisulfite when Bottle Conditioning?

    Thanks Mavroz. To be honest I don't even take the temperature when fermenting. I always get a good fermentation and the gravity is down pretty quickly so I never thought it was an issue.

    sodium metabisulfite when Bottle Conditioning?

    I brew small batched of around 12ltrs. I mash & boil on the stove in a large brew kettle and strain the grain through a sieve. It is all very basic but I do get some great results.

    sodium metabisulfite when Bottle Conditioning?

    Hi Richie, Thanks for the fast response! Yeah... I have a batch of west coast pale fermenting as we speak and I will probably try the SMB in half the batch. I am thinking a very small amount. I will post the results here once I know.

    sodium metabisulfite when Bottle Conditioning?

    Hi All, I have been brewing beer for a few years now and getting some pretty good results. I am a massive hop head and have been trying to re-create that amazing hop aroma and taste that you get with commercially brewed IPA's such as Vocation's Life & Death and Salt Beer Factory's JamDani.
