    Sensible first time keg advise sought

    The other thing to look at is when you buy cornys is that you may spend between £50-£100 per keg depending on new or old but it is money in the bank and if you decide in the future to stop kegging they will attain at least if not more than you paid for them so it's a safe outlay of your funds...

    Sensible first time keg advise sought

    I second that MmmBeer it may be expensive to start but they last years and years and the only real expense after that is gas. I never looked back and even brew to 20/21ltrs which fills a corny and no bottles either afterwards so I am virtually bottle free. Garlic Bread its the future:laugh8:

    Improving a one can homebrew??

    As a generalisation you can improve single can kits but and this is the but you then need to start using extra dry malt extract plus other hops and short brewing to between 19-21ltrs so the price starts to creep towards the 2 can kits but still probably slightly cheaper. It is a good way of...

    Best way to modify recipe for lower ABV

    I do a lot of 4% beers and I generally use melanodin, carapils wheat and then anything else to style. I also do a split mash 30mins @ 62 and 30 mins @ 67 with a mash out @ 75. My latest is a Red Rye IPA using Red X and 20% Rye with my IPA hops. I would always try to use a mixture of base malts...

    Has anybody already started to have problems with CO2 supply or price hikes

    Hi Samale I have done the same (soffits fascias and gutter quote went up a grand in 3 weeks)as some and only say some builders are using the genuine hike in product prices to hike their prices further and take advantage but I do say this tongue in cheek as there are plenty of responsible...

    Has anybody already started to have problems with CO2 supply or price hikes

    I would get one if you have a empty Rod as it has escalated since the annoucement that existing customers would be ok as they say they will now prioritise hospitals and some businesses

    Red Bull in trademark dispute with English gin firm Bullards

They also tried against a brewery in 2013 called Redwell brewery and said it had Red with LL on the end again nothing like Red...

    Has anybody already started to have problems with CO2 supply or price hikes

    The latest news is that CO2 is going to be in short supply and Hospitals may be prioritised. I am not fully au fait with what's happening but it looks like it is going to affect homebrewers. So has anyone had issues as of yet? Oh and as the thread is about CO2 supply please do not make this into...

    No Chill in Fermentor.

    To be honest there Obscure there are a few Homebrewers who do that put it into a cube and have not sanitised it but swirl the hot wort around the cube to sanitise it believe it or not which I find it strange that you could risk it after a 3/4 hour brew stint. I would always clean and sanitise as...

    No Chill in Fermentor.

    I usually now do a whirlpool in my boil kettle so the temp is usually below 70c when I transfer into the FV and then proceed to no chill from then onwards as long as you have a good clean and sanitation method you should have little risk of a infection. I try not to put wort into a FV at near...

    lots of residue when bottling

    I would never use a bottling bucket as per said the more you transfer from one to another the more chance of oxidation and as you are doing hoppy beers I deffo would resist this but its your choice. More infections/oxidation are caused by doing this. There is no need to do this as a good process...
