    If you were to start over from scratch, what would you....

    Exactly the same happened to me. I used to brew 23L batches with Grainfather, but was scared to experiment as 23L of so-so beer was a bit daunting. The burden of lugging massive weights of liquid around and the pain of bottling day started to make me not want to brew. I ended up selling up. But...

    How to brew lagers?

    Thanks. That looks like a good schedule. I saw the Brulosphy article which found no difference using shorter lagering, interesting stuff. But I thought that for my 1st ever lager in my new fermentation fridge I would go traditional with a long lagering at 4C. Maybe for my next lager I will try a...

    Oneconcept / Hopfengott 30l Mash Kettle mash kettles

    I love it. Really good quality and easy to use. I have the 15L version. I did ditch the filter that came with it, after watching a YouTube vid, and having trouble getting the boiled wort out after my first brew. It clogged up really quick and took me ages scraping at the filter with a paddle to...

    Oneconcept / Hopfengott 30l Mash Kettle mash kettles

    I don't think it has a barb. Just a quick fit thing to attach the pump. Would be pretty easy to replace it with a barb tho.

    How to brew lagers?

    It's still in the fermenter. These lagers take a long time don't they? Still got another 4 weeks lagering.

    Easy Keg 5L

    I think there might be some left. I had it on the lowest setting and just blasted a bit in when the pouring got slow. It still makes a noise when I open up the valve.

    Easy Keg 5L

    Quick question re the Party Star: I've finished my 1st keg using this (a shop bought keg of Ghost Ship) All went well, last pint was maybe a little flat. What do I do now? Do I just pull the whole thing out of the empty keg, with the CO2 still attached, or do I take the CO2 off 1st?

    Adding raspberries

    Yes, some people use less though. I had a freezer full of raspberries from the allotment.

    Adding raspberries

    Yes sorry you are right. Typo. I used 100g raspberries per litre, so 800g in my 8L batch.

    Adding raspberries

    I love a raspberry wheat. When I was brewing one last year there was a really good thread on this forum that helped me a lot. Lots of discussion about the amount of raspberries to add and how to add them. https://www.thehomebrewforum.co.uk/threads/planning-a-raspberry-wheat.88391/ I went for...

    Easy Keg 5L

    Thanks @Chippy_Tea, but I think I'll just persevere with this long thread, so everything is in one place. I am up to page 16 now (circa 2015), and it has been very informative. I have question for people who use these kegs with (or without) the excellent looking "Party Star Deluxe Tap": Do you...

    Wow, those Dark Farm 5L kegs look amazing.

    Easy Keg 5L

    91 pages on using 5L mini-kegs? @Chippy_Tea any chance of a pinned summary / guide on how to use mini-kegs? I'm off to start reading from page 1.

    Electric Beer Dispenser

    I saw those and that's what made me nervous. But re-reading them, I think the main concern is that you can't fit them to a supermarket 5l keg, because there is no hole in the keg's top bung. I 'think' that might not be a problem if you are using for home-brew and have replaced the top bung with...

    Anyone got one of these wort chillers?

    Thanks. Maybe I'll have a look at making one. My DIY skills bit rubbish and bit worried I'll kink it or something.

    Anyone got one of these wort chillers?

    I'm fed up of trying to cool my brews in a sink of cold water and ice. Thought I'd get myself a wort chiller. Does anyone have one of these Benco ones from Amazon? The seller seems pretty good, happy to adjust dimensions to suit. Any recommendations or advice much appreciated...

    How to brew lagers?

    Many thanks. I'm going to have a go at the Greg Hughes Dortmunder Export (5.1%) tomorrow.
