    My first all grain brew.

    No worries man, that's what we're here for acheers. For all grain, you need to factor in grain absorption and boil off. Absorption is normally between 0.5 and 1 litre per kg of grain and boil off is between 2 and 4 litres per hour. It's system / grain bill dependent so start with the standard...

    My first all grain brew.

    How much water did you start with? When I'm doing a full volume mash, I start with 30-32 litres depending on the grain bill.

    Hard Seltzer ABV calculation

    I know, that's why I asked the question. I've checked a couple of times with a hydrometer, and while I expected it to ferment dry, I didn't think it'd be .86 - I'll just assume that's wrong and go with it fermenting to 1.000 which gives a more believable 9%, which split over two kegs makes it...

    Hard Seltzer ABV calculation

    Split it over two kegs, flavour one with lemon and lime juice and one with strawberry Lowics syrup, gas it up and have 60 pints of hard seltzer for about £15, which would have bought maybe 8 x 250ml tins in the supermarket. Also, I'm going to learn not to randomly fire 4kg sugar into a...

    Hard Seltzer ABV calculation

    Hi all, Wasn't sure where to post this, so I'm trying here... I made a sugar wash that started at 1.060 and finished apparently at 0.860. Now I couldn't believe what the online calculators said, but then when I worked it out ((1060 - 860) / 7.4)= 27.02% ABV. That can't be right, can it? I...

    Wort cooling

    Hi @big yogi I did no chill for about two years without an issue. I transferred my hot wort to an air tight chilling 'cube' that had been cleaned and sanitised (although there's really no need to sanitise as the hot wort will kill it with fire). Left overnight in my garage, the wort was at...

    Wort cooling

    I use one of these to go over my tap to hook up to my immersion chiller https://www.hozelock.com/product/mixer-tap-connector/

    Fermzilla 30L All rounder ?

    I had krausen escape from my spunding valve when I made 27 litres of dunkelweisse, but wheat beers go off like a rocket. I might get another all rounder, I think pressure fermenting is brilliant. Turned around a Mexican lager in 8 days grain to glass, it's a game changer for things like that.

    Keezer, in through the hump?

    I just drilled another hole in the collar - 100% not going to hit anything critical there plus it's a straight run to the manifold.

    Stupid Question!

    Came here to say this. Here's a video of Dr Hans showing you how to put it together...

    Your house brew.

    1. Dry hopped SMaSH lager, pilsner malt and Mittelfruh 2. Kolsch 3. APA based on Sierra Nevada PA with Falconer's Flight hops I've always got 1 or more of these on tap

    APA

    They're pretty decent posting this sort of thing :D https://sierranevada.com/blog/pale-ale-homebrew-recipe/ I use less crystal than they do because I think my ale malt is darker than their two row. I also don't use cascade, I use falconer's flight, but whatevs 🥳
  17. HarryFlatters

    APA

    FWIW, I use the grain bill that Sierra Nevada publish for their APA, just ale malt and 4% crystal 60.

    CML,

    Great company to deal with, can rate them highly enough.

    Corny keg cleaning

    I had to use a rattle gun to get the posts off of three kegs I bought from The Homebrew Company, there was no shifting them by hand.

    Corny keg cleaning

    Can confirm. I made one from a pond pump and some JG connectors and other bits I had lying around.
