    Brohemian Pilsner

    Just sharing my Pilsner Recipe. It's a perfect summer beer for people who don't drink "craft", but also a damned fine beer, which should impress beer nerds alike. It's unfined, but that's because I forgot to add the brausol and it's pretty clear after the 2 weeks in the kegerator (after 4...

    Craft: An Argument: Why the term 'Craft Beer' is completely undefinable, hopelessly misunderstood and absolutely essential

    Hello brewers and brewsters I've just finished reading Craft: An Argument: Why the term 'Craft Beer' is completely undefinable, hopelessly misunderstood and absolutely essential by Pete Brown. It's not the longest of books at 209 pages, but definitely worth a read if you're interested in the...

    Forum brains - I done got a detailed water report done, but it don't all line up proper with Brewfather.

    Hangover Discussion

    I attended a Fringe event from the Cloudwater Friends and Family festivities last night at the Northern Monk Refectory in Manchester. The guys from the Malt Miller were there and some representatives from White Labs. As a result I'm at work a delicate, fragile, flower of a man. What's...

    Landlord Conditioning, Force carbonation or priming Query

    Dear beer aficionados I've purchased the Malt Miller's Premium Landlord Clone AG kit. I love it on draught, but don't think it's half as delicious in bottles. I'd welcome people's opinions on what to do with it when fermentation's over as I know that people recommend conditioning in the bottle...

    Is it even worth it? Keep or Bin?

    I took a break from brewing 'cause when we moved I lost the brew space. As a result when we moved again and I gained some brew space I thought I'd use up the old hops and grain from 2013.... It only cost me some maris otter and a yeast (FM11 Heathery Heights) so I made the following recipe...

    Vanguard Hops UK

    Has anyone used a hop called Vanguard? and if so where did you manage to find it in the UK? I'm looking at a Brooklyn Lager clone and I can't find it. I can use substitutes, it's no bother, but I couldn't see any threads about it so thought I'd start one.

    I've looked through the existing hop tea posts and can't find the answers soooo.... I'm using my shiny new SS Conical fermenter and cold crashing seemingly isn't an option, it seems to retain the yeasts heat so well I could ferment outside! So to cut down on extra particulates and because it's...
