    Calling those fermenting under pressure!

    I like using these from brew2bottle £50. Good as you can see exactly what is happening. I have 17L of Golden ale using Wyeast London 111 and pressure is about 10psi. This is day 5

    Mini Kegs

    Good to find another local brewer, definitely will meet when some sort of normality returns, maybe split orders of ingredients etc. Sounds like you keep a good selection of fresh yeasts. I've been in all the good places you mention and looking forward to revisiting some soon.

    Mini Kegs

    Hi Galena, I got my CO2 6kg bottle from gas & hire limited in Chesterfield (they are also in Sheffield) £50 deposit and £16.20 fill inc. VAT. Lasts ages even with all the kegs I have. I also have a bottle on loan from my local landlord, I give him £10 when I need another full bottle

    Lemon drop hops

    I've just made a brew using these hops this week. First time trying them so it will be a few weeks to see how it comes out. Made mine with Europlils malt and a bit of light Munich. I have had them about a year unopened, bought them after having a pint of Lemondrop pale that was on tap briefly at...

    Anna's Brewdays

    I got the same filler from Ali Express earlier this year, not so cheap now you have to pay 20% VAT on the item and 20% VAT on shipping cost which is added on before the item is sent. Depends on the exchange rate on the day, mine came out at £37.38 inclusive but arrived in 8 days

    Portable options for serving from a keg

    You can get a similar cornelius keg adapter that uses an S30 HB bottle to top up. I got mine from Lovebrewing but currently they are showing as out of stock

    Fermzilla lid

    Had mine 18 months and it's still stiff, I guess it shows it's a good seal. I put fingers behind the neck and push the posts with my thumbs and it eventually unseals

    What size gas tank

    I have a 6kg bottle, 6 gas lines and 4 cornys usually connected all the time. We get through about 1 keg a week and my current gas bottle is still going after more than 5 months. Previously a bottle only lasted 1-2 months until I re-did all my connectors and pipes so I guess I don't have any...

    Brewzilla thread to share knowledge, experiences and good practice

    I often boil close to this level, 70 batches done now and not been caught out yet. I keep a big stainless steel spoon in one hand, have a close by spray bottle and if needed quickly flick the power switch off. I keep both power switches on until boil then only have the more powerful switch on...

    Crossmyloof "Hell" Lager Yeast - opinions

    I pitched 1pk in18L on Saturday, took about 24hrs to get going at 14C and it's bubbling away happily now. I've used it about half a dozen times in the Spring and been pleased with the results though these were my first attempts at Lager.

    Spent grain, compost bin and mice

    Wild birds don't seem interested in the grain, mine goes to my neighbours chickens in return for access to her village spring water (my supply is metered on Severn Trent) some of which I return to her as beer
