    Been Offered a Grainfather and other gubbins....

    A friend of ours asked if I was interested in buying any of his home brew stuff as he's giving up. I knew he did a bit of all grain brewing but had no idea as to his setup, kind of assumed he'd be doing BIAB or something like that. Thought if he had a boiler I might be interested in that as I...

    Countryfile 19/9/21 Bromyard Hops

    If you didn't see it last night then it may be worth a watch. Main focus of last night's Countryfile was on the hop growing farms of Bromyard, Herefordshire and in particular Brook House Farm who are trying to champion British grown hops to craft breweries both here and abroad. A mate of mine...

    Bank Holiday Weekend Nearly Here....

    And for once it looks like the weather is going to play ball. Off to the Gower Peninsula tomorrow with the caravan for the week, can't wait to hit the beach and do some body boarding with the kids, then beers & BBQ. Hope you all have a great weekend and/or half term if you have kids. Feel...

    CO2 Again...

    My CO2 cylinder ran out, no big deal you would think aside from having a load of beer trapped in my Cornys... 😥 So first port of call, the place the cylinder came from, an Adams Gas stockist that happens to be a motor factors. No cylinders available, not sure when they can get one, but looking...

    Kettle Elements for DIY Boiler?

    Thinking about dabbling in some extract brewing this year, never know might lead to me doing some BIAB stuff, but either way I'd quite like to be able to boil at full volume. Now having seen a few guides I was going to make my own boiler as I don't want to spend too much however it seems that...

    Yeast Rehydration - Do you? [POLL]

    In my early days of brewing I used to just pitch dried yeast on top of the wort as per most kit instructions and generally everything went okay. Then I had a few failed brews intermittently where either the yeast didn't start or got stuck and I've never had much luck restarting stuck brews. My...

    Pressure Fermenters - How do you dry hop?

    Potentially stupid question but here goes, I don't currently own a pressure thingy... I usually dry hop my brews when fermentation is all but over, normally lob the hops in, leave 2-3 days, cold crash 1-2 days, keg. Now with a pressure fermenter at the point when I would do this I'm assuming...

    A Momentous Day...

    So on Saturday night I kegged my latest beer, a Beerworks Captain Cook's Amber Ale. Nothing particularly special about that but since since increasing my Cornelius keg population from 2 to 6 at the start of lock down I've been brewing pretty much non stop and now all 6 of them have beer or...

    Corny Keg Habit

    The realisation that the home brew kit you buy will probably never fully pay for itself 😅 I've been meaning to switch to Cornelius kegs for some time and had already bought a second hand tall fridge quite a while back in readiness. Late last year I got the premium keg kit from BrewKegTap and...

    Have I damaged my regulator?

    Still consider myself very much on the learning curve with Cornys, gas etc. Made a bit of a school boy error last night that I hopefully won't repeat. Decided to burst carbonate my latest brew so after getting it in the keg set the regulator for 40 psi and left it for a day. Went to drop it...

    Tube Heater Kaput.

    Luckily I glanced at the Inkbird whilst out in the garage getting something or other, my current brew had dropped to 16°C but the heat LED was solidly on. The alarm was set for 15°C but I'm not sure I'd hear it out there anyway. Swapped the fermenter to my second brew fridge which was...

    Kegerator Cleaning etc.

    So I've ran my first keg of beer through on my lovely new Intertaps. I'm now a complete convert to cornies, it's a revelation. But I have a question.... At the moment I only have two kegs and taps so the one I've emptied isn't going to get refilled or replaced immediately. I plan to get...

    CO2 Worcester / Tewkesbury

    Thought I had a local place lined up for a CO2 cylinder but having gone there this afternoon they only do a smaller cylinder that you have to buy outright and then pay for refills or rent a regular one for £5 month neither of which I want to do, so... Anyone recommend a supplier of rent free...

    Melton Mowbray

    Is there any finer accompaniment to a pint of ale than one of the fine products of this Leicestershire town (pork pies)? I'm eating one right now but alas no beer, don't think my employers would like me drinking a brew whilst sat at my desk :( I'll make up for it later.

    Beerwulf

    An advert for this company popped up on my Facebook feed so had a look as you do. Very good prices for Belgian / Trappist beers and a promise of delivery in 48 hours for free if ordering 12 bottles or more so I put in a test order. Not quite the 48 hour turnaround promised but only a day later...
