    Full or partial boil? Hops in too long?

    Kill two birds with one stone here and ask both on the same thread. What do you guys find is the main difference between a full volume boil and a partial boil then topping up the concentrated wort? I only boil what can fit into my Burco then top up the rest when I’m transferring to my no chill...

    Three hop combinations

    I have just dry hopped my last brew with 300g of hops, the most ever for any of my brews. The combination was. Simcoe 100g Centennial 100g Amarillo 100g Not got a clue what it will taste like but if you could only pick three hops to go in a beer what would your favourites be? Cheers

    Crushed malt 25kg £20 ?

    I phoned a local malt supplier (massive factory) and the guy answering the phone says he has a few spare bags of Ale malt for £20 each, not much more detail than that. Central Scotland if anyone wants any details just contact me but the way he was talking it’s only 3 or 4 (I’m taking 1)

    Gas fitting alternative?

    Hi The John Guest (I think that’s what it’s called) fitting on my gas regulator keeps breaking, seems to get very brittle then just crumble and I’m getting fed up buying them, anyone got a better method of connecting? Apologies if this is just obvious to most.

    Regular hop supplier?

    Hi guys, just wondering who most people use. I usually use CML as they deliver for free or 50p when I order 100g of hops, most other places want £5.95 but they are closed until the 2nd Jan Anywhere else decent for small hop orders? Cheers

    Wilko triple hopped IPA

    I bought this and was looking forward to brewing it, instructions say it comes supplied with hop pellets, I opened the lid and found a mighty 10 grams, yes TEN grams of Amarillo. Let’s hope to God it has been triple hopped beforehand, now, off to Crossmyloof to order 100g

    Mix two kits

    Hi guys, I have these two kits and it doesn’t really appeal to me to brew separately with additives, would anyone mix these together, I only have the yeast that comes with these and 50g of Cashmere hops in the freezer. I could order yeast from Crossmyloof I guess. Both kits are 1.8kg, do you...

    Beer ready straight from Keg?

    This is probably a stupid question but hey ho, I’ve just got into using kegs and I was wondering how can the beer be ready to drink after a few days from the keg but needs a couple of weeks in the bottle? I’m not talking about the carbonation I’m talking about the taste, I just tasted my Punk...
