    Folkpunk's Brewdays 2021

    1 March Slight delay in producing this write-up. Third brew in the Brewzilla. (I've been waiting for the fermentation fridge as previous batch was lager). Lost Evenings (Own recipe) I thought I would have a stab at something similar to a Camden off-menu. However it has turned out a lot darker...

    Folkpunk's Brewdays 2021

    This is now bottled/kegged and waiting for carbonating/conditioning. Had a cheeky taste when dispensing and tastes promising.

    Folkpunk's Brewdays 2021

    This has turned out superb, a really fruity IPA which tastes as good as any commercial brew. Really pleased with the brewzilla and all grain. I really enjoy the brewday although I need to try and get the time down a bit.

    Folkpunk's Brewdays 2021

    23 January Dukla Pilsner (my own recipe) Second go with the Brewzilla – this time why not go crazy and attempt a double decoction mash! I love Czech pilsner, especially fresh out the tank. After reading about the process it seemed decoction mash was worth a try. This time I had cleaned the...

    Folkpunk's Brewdays 2021

    Bought myself a Brewzilla and took the plunge into AG. First time using was a fortnight ago where I did the Totally Tropical recipe from James Morton. So slightly delayed report here. 9th January 2021 Used Safale US-05 Yeast and re-hydrated (2 packs) whilst preparing. Put Brewzilla together...

    Fermentation Fridge

    I've read some people remove a small part of the door seal to feed the cable. I wouldn't drill through the side unless you are certain it doesn't have coolant tubes.

    Fermentation Fridge

    I used a dimplex https://www.amazon.co.uk/gp/product/B00NT0X8K2/ref=ppx_yo_dt_b_asin_title_o01_s00?ie=UTF8&psc=1 It's about 16 inches though so needs to be a 60cm wide fridge. It was easy to do, once I used the drain hole to feed the cables.... I needed to put a new plug on it as all electrical...

    Fermentation Fridge

    I Hope so! I think 26C is the cutoff - as in don't let it go above 26C but whatever temp it gets to just hold it there. I'll report back when it's done!

    Fermentation Fridge

    Finally got a fermentation fridge in action today. A few weeks back I got a free fridge and set about converting. Created a wooden shelf with holes to allow heat from a tube heater mounted underneath. Used an Inkbird to control heating/cooling. I figured it would be easier to feed cable...

    Each to their own - tbf he went on a scholarship and is open about how his schooling pushed him into the Punk scene as he felt so alienated at Eton. Live shows can be fantastic but appreciate he's marmite 🙂

    Most music in both those genres as well as a lot more across others. TBF I like most music. But Levellers, Frank Turner probably the ones I've seen the most over the years. Funny how lively music and beer go hand in hand 🍺

    Hi, I'm a new member from Eastleigh nr Southampton. I have been making cider from apples, wine from grapes and beer from kits ;). I'm interested in the brew technology and am thinking of moving into all grain. First step though is to make a fermentation fridge!

    Fermenting fridge - is this OK?

    Cheers, I guess if not I could always upgrade the tube at a later date. Now to source the components and build!!

    Fermenting fridge - is this OK?

    Has anyone with the tube heater in a fridge tried to hold the temp at 25-26? I was looking at Belgian fermentation and it was suggested hold the temp to 18C for 2-3 days then let it rise naturally to no more than 26 but not to let it drop once it got there. I'm keen to buy an Inkbird and fridge...
