    Lack of Fermentation Control - Best Yeast for my conditions?

    That sounds like a plan pitching it at the top end of the temperature range and allowing it to come down - I'll give that a bash! Thanks!

    Stainless Steel Minikegs - Teething Issues?

    Hey guys, So I got sick of bottling and all the faff involved and pulled the trigger on a couple of stainless steel 5L minikegs and a tap/CO2 regulator. I attempted to bottle 10Lish into two kegs and then force prime one by by shaking at 20 PSI. I think I noticed a CO2 leak as a result of a...

    Lack of Fermentation Control - Best Yeast for my conditions?

    I bottled/mini-kegged my pale session ale last night which used Hog Norsk. As I said previous, it came out at 92 percent attenuation, so tasted very dry. I used extra pale and Munich malt, and I could really taste the body and the hop aroma after. No sign of off-flavours! I've just ordered...

    Lack of Fermentation Control - Best Yeast for my conditions?

    Nice one - thanks for confirming! I was doing some searching on Hog Norsk and saw you'd used that a few times too. Would you describe it as a Kveik/Saison hybrid?

    Lack of Fermentation Control - Best Yeast for my conditions?

    Many thanks for the suggestions guys! Sounds like I'll be getting hold of some Saison yeasts and trying those until I maybe get a brewing fridge set up. I don't have a lot of room and my partner is already unhappy with the amount of gear I have clogging the house, so may have to do some...

    Lack of Fermentation Control - Best Yeast for my conditions?

    Hi there, I'm relatively new to brewing and as it stands, I don't have proper fermentation control. I ferment in a cupboard in my house where the wort is around 24 degrees celsius the majority of the time (might fluctuate down to 22 or up to 26 very occasionally). I've been using US-05 for my...

    Verdant Putty

    Looks good man! Is it this one? - Might give this a bash as I have the ingredients to hand if so (minus the yeast, but I'll probs just use US-05)

    Verdant Putty

    I'm literally drinking a Putty as we speak! Super nice. I had a variety of different beers from Verdant, and couldn't help but think they are all very similar. Subtle differences as you say, but they definitely have a specialty and a certain character that dominates across the range!

    Verdant Putty

    I managed to get a decent selection of Verdant and other beers. Just had one of the Putty's. My god. The hop levels are nuts! Very nice beer, that's for sure. You guys talking above about recipes - do let me know how you get on with the clone. Super intrigued to see if this is doable at home...

    An update on the NEIPA! I think my quick turnaround time has worked well. I bottled it Friday night and I tried some tonight with my partner (she absolutely loves NEIPA's) and she loves it. A little under carbonated here, but in a few days time I think it'll be perfect!

    Fingers crossed for ya!

    Ordered a selection. My first time trying Verdant. Hope it lives up to the hype!

    Beavertown Neck Oil Clone

    Handy too though - thanks! I love both of these beers.

    Sounds good! If you have the recipe on Brewfather or Brewer's Friend, do share!

    Intrigued bystander here! How did it go?

    Just a Christmas Brewing Noob Introducing Himself!

    So, I bottled it last Thursday and tried a sneaky sample last night. Looking and tasting good! It's got quite a buttery aftertaste and I think I fermented too high at the beginning but other than that, perfectly drinkable! Shame it's only about 6 pint's worth after the angels' share hahaha!

    Joe's Brewday

    So, I just quickly added the dry hops and took a refractometer reading. It's already at FG and there was little to no krausen on top. I think we're on track to bottle on Saturday as planned. I dunno what's in US-05, but clearly it's good stuff!

    My order came today. It was an absolute beast to be fair. Two massive boxes.

    We're good! The airlock is going like a madman now and I'm going to take a reading tomorrow night when I add the dry hops. I'm hoping we can have fermentation mostly wrapped up by Saturday with it being a NEIPA - let's see!

    Hey all! I'm very new to brewing, so thought I'd share my first brew from my own recipe. I've gone for a New England IPA style beer and quite influenced by Brewdog's Hazy Jane: Mash: 25-Minutes Boil: 60-Minutes OG: 1.061 Estimated FG: 1.012 Est. ABV: 6.4% Batch Size: 10 Litres Fermentables...
