    Does beer taste worse than before?

    I went to a pub in England this evening, for the first time in 100 days. It was my usual after tennis pint with my mates at the local and I was quite looking forward to a Timothy Taylor Landlord. However, huge disappointment. The beer tasted like some of my home brew when I drink it too soon...

    Forgot the Campden tablet again

    I need to hook up a reminder when I am filling the hot liquor tank as there is a 50-50 chance that I will forget the Campden tablets, which I did again this weekend. I realise it is there to take the chlorine out of the water to avoid it reacting badly with the malt. Can anyone describe the...

    New logo/avatar

    I thought I’d unveil my new logo to you all. I had a version I’d painted on my garage wall but I’ve just paid someone $20 through Upwork to tidy it up for me. I’m thinking of getting some circular stickers made to put on bottles/kegs. What do you think?

    HLT & MT Automation

    Just thought I’d update you on a little project I’m working on. The objective is to automate the heating of the strike water and the mashing so that the first 2+ hrs of brew day can happen while I am sleeping or at work. Note I have built a simple HERMS system (coiled 10mm copper pipe from...

    My Draft Syndicate Brochure - Comments Please

    Some of you may have seen my recent thread talking about the beer duty implications of sharing a brewery and distributing the product for domestic use only. Having got clearance from HMRC that this is exempt as per their Excise Note 226 Para 4.4, I am now going to see if I can drum up support...

    Brewing Syndicate - do regs apply?

    I’ve been brewing on my 20 L set up for a couple of years and I’m now thinking of upgrading to a 1 bbl nano-brewery system by joining forces with a few brewing friends. The plan will be to all chip in an equal amount to buy the equipment and then just split the cost of ingredients. We will each...
