    Clyne's (BrewBru's!) brewday

    Well after watching these brewday threads from the sidelines for over a year I finally decided to jump in and join the crowd. As much so I can make notes and remember what I did and when as I'm terrible at writing stuff up on brewdays. I tend to use a mixture of BeerSmith and a whiteboard in my...

    Double dry hop with a Corny

    Good evening folks So I've got an IPA on the go and I've got two batches of hops weighed out ready for dry hopping. Ideally I'd like to do this without any risk of oxidisation in my Corny. I'll be doing a pressurised transfer from my Chronical to the corny and was going to go with a bag under...

    But do I need a mash tun?

    Hey dudes (and dudettes) So, I've got my good old trusty Robobrew and I love it. Have been using it for several years now and pretty much mastered it. Not had a failed brew since I started using it. I absolutely love brewing - started when I was a teen, had quite a break but recently (4 or 5...

    Grain Mill - care & maintenance

    Hey all So for my recent anniversary my wife kindly (after strict instructions and the correct link) bought me a 3 roller grain mill from the chaps at Malt Miller (with some grain too!). I used it at the weekend for a Peat Smoked Porter, and I absolutely love it. I'm not sure if it was the...

    All grain - dummy's guide

    Hey all I've been all grain brewing for a couple of years now, and one of the things I struggled with the most from the beginning was the amount of new terminology I had to learn. Sparging. Mashing. Mash tun. Strike water. HLT. And so on. A friend of mine (who's relatively new to brewing...

    Floaters in my beer

    Hey all. So I’ve got a weird problem and just not sure what it is. I’ve got about 4 brews now which all have tiny little floaters in them. The first couple I dry hopped so thought it might have been that. But then I had a kit which also had similar floaters (the other three are all grain using...

    BrewBru - my home brew YouTube videos

    Hey all I’m really enjoying making a few videos along the way of the brewing process. While I realise there are loads out there on YouTube when I first started out I couldn’t always find a guide for what I was looking for and especially using kit commonly found in the UK. I’ve posted a couple...

    Suggested wine yeast

    Hey there fellow brew peeps So I’ve been back brewing beer for a few years now. I used to do wine kits years ago (maybe 20!). Got some rhubarb in the garden and fancied giving a rhubarb wine a go. I’ve seen the thread with recipes but wondered about recommended yeast? Is there like an S-05...

    Corny kegs - where do you get them?

    Hey all Apologies if this is in the wrong group, couldn’t really decide which one was best! I’ve got 3 corny kegs at the moment and would like a few more. Last time I purchased from and got some second hand ones for around 35 ish quid each. They don’t have these grade...

    Hello from the Highlands!

    Hello fellow brew peeps. I live in the far north of Scotland, married with a son. I first started brewing when I was around 17 using the good old tins of "syrup" and plastic buckets. Over the last few years my passion has been somewhat re-ignited and I'm not all grain brewing. My wife bought...
