    Taps for PB's

    I need a new tap for a 1/2 size (10-12 litre) pressure barrel and I would prefer either the King Keg (round screw top) type or a metal tap. This is a barrel with a two inch top opening. What is the size of the tap needed 3 /4" BSP or something else? If you can recommend a supplier for a tap...

    Plastic Pressure Barrel cooling?

    Plastic Pressure Barrels. I'll be using my 1/2 size barrels again as the weather cools into Autumn and Winter. I'd like to use them more but keeping them cool is difficult as they are in the garage and will have to stay there. Other than a fridge are you able to suggest any PRACTICAL ways to...

    First WOW some questions :)

    I have 2 x 1litre Welches Purple grape juice 1.4 litre pressed Apple juice and the usual chemicals and yeast. When I went to the Homebrew shop to buy the yeast (WineLoft StHelens very good) the owner recommended adding some sultanas or bananas to give the wine some body. I'm aiming for 6litre...

    Fruit Puree anybody?

    I have used Leonce Blanc and Funkin Pro puree in beer with good success has anybody used them to make wine? If so how much to a 5litre batch? They are not cheap but so easy to use, I'll be making another Raspberry Wheat beer next April or early May next year :) Atb. Aamcle

    Racking, racking and yet more...

    What need less racking? I've read about people racking wine many times, I know for sure that I'd just get frustrated with the messing about. WOW seems like a likely candidate but if I'm going to make wine I want to make good wine, would the use of fining agents reduce the number of times I'd...

    Making Red Wine

    I'm told I can't make a red wine because red wine is fermented on the grape skins. What would happen if I used Currants to rep!ace sultanas in a suit and wine? Currents seem to be made from a red grape. Atb. Aamcle

    Plastic stoppers?

    Years and years ago I seem to remember there were push in plastic stoppers for wine bottles I think my Mum used them when she made wine are they any good? I don't have one of those rams that pushes a cork into the bottle. Thanks

    How long to ferment?

    I don't want demijohns all over the place and I may even do larger volumes of I find something I like enough so I'll be fermenting in my temperature controlled brewing fridge. Brewing/frementing beer takes about 14 days then adding couple of days to cold crash that might be as long as 20 days...

    Many Questions. :)

    Months and months ago I asked about making a GOOD red as that seems unlikely unless I buy a very expensive kit I'm now considering country wines and WOW's. I have CJ Berrys book but based on the posts I have read here it seems dated so I have questions. 1, Is there a full "how to" available...

    Wine yeasts so slow?

    Why are wine yeasts so slow compared to beer yeasts? With a decent amount of yeast I can easily brew out a lager in 14 days but from what I have read wine seems to take weeks and weeks. As far as I understand it it's mainly simple sugars in wine like fructose they should go quickly. I can...

    Wine for a beer brewer?

    Good Morning All. I'm looking for advice, I normally brew beer, grain, hops, water and yeast. It's been a long time since I made wine, although I still have the equipment, as a result I don't know were to begin to make the wines I enjoy. I'll list a few types that I enjoy in the hope that it...

    After brewing a Raspberry Wheat I still have a pouch of Raspberry Puree (1kg) left over so I hope somebody can recommend an AG recipe they have brewed. I'm not after a sour/lambic style and I don't want to go over about 6% ABV and I'm happy to do a smaller batch of there isn't enough puree...

    Need a Big One? - Swap..
