    How much lemon/lime

    Currently brewing a lemon and lime lager. Pils and munich malt, bittering with Herkules, and a small late addition of Herkules and lemon drop. I have 2 limes which I intend to chop up and add at 5 mins. No lemons as the shop had none, but I will add lemon and lime peel as a "dry" addition...

    The "sour" styles

    Sour in "" because I know that there are a lot of variations, which is kind of the point. I haven't tried many sour style beers, but does anyone have a guide or a rundown to offer of what types there are and how they differ? I read about sour, brett, lambic, different yeasts, kettle souring and...

    Blichmann (others available) beer gun

    Finally got around to using my counter pressure bottle filler for the first time today. I wonder what the experience of others is or if they could share some tips if they have any. I found I was losing a lot of beer out the bottles once I got near the top, but that this was slightly mitigated...

    Herkules and Goldings lager...

    Otherwise known as Tennents, but had to get your attention somehow.... Never mind whether or not Tennents is seen as an acceptable recipe to try and clone:laugh8: I have been conversing with the guys at CML earlier, and asked them if they knew any insider info about the tennents recipe. All I...

    Brewing/Recipe calculations

    I suspect I will post a lot about this as I get through my latest book, Designing Great Beers. In buying this book I intend to get my process sort of nailed down regarding numbers. I am pretty slapdash with throwing ingredients in and whilst I can get decent beer from simple recipes that way, I...

    Stout flavours... HBF decides

    Brewing a stout tomorrow, and I am going to be adding some flavours to the FV. I cannot decide on a combo of beans. The options are tonka (pretty sure this one will be getting used) then vanilla, cocoa nibs or coffee beans. Decide for me brothers and sisters

    Fermentasaurus Gen 3 issue

    Just put my first batch into my gen 3. I have found though that the valve on the long spindle that comes out through the lid keeps on dropping down which closes off the collection bottle. I have had to jam it in the raised position. I am also fairly unconvinced that the runner joint that seals...

    Quick Question thread

    Another forum (not beer related) I use has one of these, and I find it useful since not everything is thread worthy. The masses will decide, but I though it might help if, like me you have loads of questions especially on a brew day but dont want to start a thread over it... On that basis, I...

    Pressure fermenting and closed transfer. Some questions

    Hello there, I have on its way to me a Fermenter King G3, which opens up the world of pressure fermenting and closed transfers, so I have figured out (all by myself) that in order to pressure ferment I shall have to add a spunding valve to my kit. I think I am correct in saying that's all I...

    Possible stupid question re kegging

    Right, forgive me if I am being a dafty here.... I poured a pint of lager the other day that was almost completely flat. Made me think perhaps I am not following correct protocol for keg operations.... So When I set for the carbing pressure I want ie for my lager about 25psi, then once its...

    An interesting lager....

    Folks, need some help with a recipe and specifically a hop bill. Lager is my thing, and I have been experimenting with warm ferments (Ubbe and Hell) hoping they will bypass the issue of no brewfrisge. Anyway I have stuck with Saaz for now but looking to mix it up a bit with something more...

    After adding finings....

    Was unsure where to put this but some of you may have seen the pic I posted of my lager fermented with CML hell yesterday. That was when I was racking it to the bottling bucket. It was pretty clear in the photo without much suspended in it at all. It was all In the funny looking yeast cake...

    Yeast Subs

    What info do people use to select an appropriate yeast when the apparently frequent situation comes up that you cant get what you want? I recently couldnt get Ediburgh Ale or Scottish Ale for a 60 shilling so selected Wyeast British Ale II in the hope that it's of similar style, but I couldnt...

    Greg Hughes recipes

    I see various threads all over the place about Greg Hughes recipes. He seems to be held in high esteem and all my AG brews have been from his book so far. Thought maybe it might be an idea to have a thread where folk can discuss a GH recipe they have brewed and give it a bit of a rating to...

    Some questions about kegging

    Kegging seems like a natural progression and something that interests me in my quest to cut down time from brew to glass. I cant see me having space for, or drinking enough, to justify a multi keg system, kegerator or whatever so..... Are kegs easy to use/setup/clean? How long does beer stay...

Will PM it to anyone who wants as well as the name but dont want to share publicly in case they arent happy with that.... However I need a little help to fill in the gaps. The grain bill is 90%...

    NEIPA, is there any point?

    Be honest now folks, I would like to brew one of these as my next brew, but I have read a lot of the threads on here and the whole oxidizing thing worries me. For those who have hone brewed NEIPA, would you say the result is worth it? I would be bottling FWIW. If the answer is no, does anyone...

    Isinglass, sustainability and alternatives

    Upon searching I found a few topics on isinglass but nothing about its sustainability. I am not a veggie or a vegan, and having not sampled the only brew I have used this is yet, I am not sure of its effectiveness but I am generally interested in fish sustainability. So is this stuff just a by...

    Blood Red Sky

    Had a bottle of Innis and Gunn blood red sky lastnight. Actually quite liked it. Does anyone have a recipe for similar? Most intriguing of all though and something I am keen to try is the use of oak and rum. I am sure I will think of other styles to try that sort of thing with. What styles of...
