    Anyone use yeast nutrient?

    Its Harris Pure Brew, it works to eliminate Chloramine and Chlorine from your brewing water, which could otherwise react with the yeast during fermentation. It also claims to feed the yeast. I use it to get rid of that 'homebrew taste'. Get it from or the homebrew

    Chops that's a crazy amount of brews you've knocked up there! Haha, good effort. What system are you using.... a Grainfather or something similar? Last close to the originals are your beers? Say for punk and hazy Jane etc.......

    First Lager

    Ok thanks guys.

    First Lager

    Oh one other thing is that I'm using a party tap, could it be that? I've got a better tap that connects straight to my corny, but that foams as well. Do you think it would improve things if I use the better tap on the end of 2m of tubing?

    Thanks, I'll maybe try longer tubing? Cant think of anything else to remedy it.

    First Lager

    Hi thanks, I always have to vent the gas off to serve, as anything over 5psi just comes out as foam. I'm using 1.55m (5' 1") of 3/16th, and use the S30 Co2 bottles. Trouble is I'm wasting a lot of gas.

    Foxbat, what psi do you serve it at? How long is the tubing you use from keg to tap? And if you reduce psi to serve then are you having to crank the gas back up to 20psi so it doesn't lose carbonation for the next time you want a pint?

    New Mango Pale Ale from Mangrove Jacks

    The Mangroves Jack's kits are really good. Festival were my kits of Choice before MJ's came along, and in my opinion the MJ's are far better. Does anyone know of any other kits as good?

    Cost of kegging

    Hi, is anyone using a 60/40 gas mix? If so do you need a special regulator or will a normal Co2 regulator do? And does anyone know of anywhere in or near south Cumbria where I can buy a 6kg bottle?

    Have a go at simple AG

    Ok thanks for the replies. With regards the hops, I'll probably bin them ...or at least sniff them first.....then bin them in fear of ruining a brew.

    Have a go at simple AG

    Good posts about ag brewing there Clibit, I'm very tempted to try it myself after reading this thread. A question though: Is it better to bypass the 15l pot and maybe go for an urn type water heater? in case larger (23L) batches are required? I've seen some for about £55 online. Also any idea...
