    Adjusting Hop Quantity

    Hi I was wondering if it is common to adjust the hop quantums if the alpha assumed in the recipe differs from the alpha of the hops you purchase? For example, in the recipe im about to follow the Hop schedule is as follows; Magnum 11% - 23g @ start of boil Hallertaurer Mittelfruh 5% -...

    Yeast Query

    Hi all I'm planning to brew the Greg Hughes Munich Dunkel recipe tomorrow. The recipe suggests Safelager W34/70 which I did purchase however it says on the pack that it should be pitched in 10-15L of wort. I'm planning a 19l batch. I'm not able to get hold of another packet of the w34 before...

    Storing your beer

    What would you say is the quickest, most cost effective and convenient way to store your final product. Bottling seems like quite a faff and also relatively expensive if Im using glass bottles. Mini kegging is also looking like a big outlay. Any other more convent and cheaper options...

    What would you have done?

    My first ever brew day was yesterday. It was very long and very eventful. Certainly didn't go to plan. I cant face going into the details at the moment, its all too raw, but i have a 'hypothetical' situation which i'd appreciate your views on... Youve mashed and sparged and have 25L in the...

    Flame Out?

    Hi all Please excuse the daft question but if a recipe says add hops at the end of the boil (flame out?) what exactly does this mean? If the boild is 60mins and you add at 0mins. Do you just cool immediately and add cooled wort to the FV? Or do you switch the boil off but leave it say...
