    Hard seltzer sense check

    Hi, My Mrs fancied a hard seltzer on tap so I ordered a kit from the malt miller , instructions here - Looking at the volumes it doesn't seem right to me. You get 5kg of sugar yet the expected OG is 1.040, wouldn't it be higher than...

    Kolsch in Morrisons

    Hi all, I was in Morrisons in Stirling earlier today and was surprised to find some bottles of Fruh Kolsch. It's a good example of the style if not the best and the bottled is not a patch on fresh from the tap but as a Kolsch is a popular home brew it's a good reference.

    Brewzilla temp probe , error E1

    Happy new year all! My last brew of 2020 ended on a low note as my brewzilla gen 3 started to give me an E1 error on the cleaning cycle. This is a fault with the temp probe/thermistor. Does anyone have any advice or a supplier of a replacement? I usually use the kegland store on AliExpress...

    First Kettle Sour - Disaster?

    Hi Guys, Yesterday I started my first kettle sour. I'm doing it in my Robobrew, I mashed as normal, sparged, did a quick 10 min boil, brought it down to 40C then pitched 10g of Lallemand WildBrew SourPitch. I set the thermostat on the Robobrew to 38C and left just the low power element switched...

    Do you need to replace hydrometers?

    Hi all, Just realised last night that I have had my current Stevenson Reeves hydrometer for at least 6 years and wondered if they need replacing periodically? Maybe I just have GAS as I'd like a nice finishing hydrometer with a large scale so I don't have to guess if its 1.009 or 1.010! Cheers!

    Hi, Has anyone had any experience of the EVA Barrier beer line I keep seeing used in Australia and the US? It looks to be a kegland product - There isn't a distributor in the UK that I can find but I can...

    Hozelock recommendations?

    Hi all, Does anyone have any recommendations for reliable and leak free 1/2" hozelock compatible stop end connectors?

    Male to Male Camlock adapter?

    Hi All, I saw someone in the US on YouTube use a male to male camlock adapter, basically a double ended type A. You could use this to join two hoses with female sockets on them, or to add an existing hose setup to a female camlock output on something like a RoboBrew (which is what I want to...

    Blocked corny

    I kegged my first neipa attempt a couple of weeks ago and I have a problem , no beer coming out! I suspect that some stray hop pellet particles have blocked the beer out poppet/post/dip tube. Any ideas how to rectify this with the least possible fannying around and oxygen pick up? Well...

    Has anyone ever used the Beersmith Burton water profile?

    As the title really, the Burton on Trent water profile in BS looks crazy to me. 700+ sulfates? Has anyone used this without getting a minerally mess of a beer?

    UK availability of counterflow chiller

    Hi all, Does anyone have any sources in the UK where I could buy a counterflow chiller? I see a few places that sell the grain father one but they're a bit steep! I know I could build one and I'd love to, but young kids and limited free time get in the way! I see some SS ones on AliExpress...

    Beersmith 3 - Total Water Mineral Content

    Hi all, I'm still getting to grips with BS3 and the water tab. I thought that I had it cracked but something is puzzling me. I add salts to both my mash and sparge water. I had always assumed that the adjusted water profiles section related to the profile of the whole volume of water (i.e...

    Hi, Does anyone know of a good source for washers for type C camlock fittings? Ideally i'd want silicon ones, the ones in my existing fittings are getting a bit past it now. Only Angel homebrew seems to stock them that I can see, and I'm not really keen on paying postage for something so...

    Herms coil sealing

    Hi, I've just got myself a shiny new brew builder HERMS coil for my HLT and some stainless compression fittings. Try as I might I just can't get it to seal without a slight drip into the pot when testing by running water through the coil. On a real brewday I'm not wanting wort to run into the...
