    Hi welcome. I'm sure that the equipment they had back in those days wasn't to extravagant or thecnical, then again I may be compleatly wrong, what is it your recipes call for?

    Getting ready for first bottling day.

    For sure sanitize your bottles. My top tip for first time bottlers, practice your siphoning first with a container of water and a few bottles. Better to waste water practicing than beer that has taken weeks to create. Also have a couple of towels handy Good luck!

    Draught beer.

    Also bottle conditioned is fine to CAMRA, if you care about what they think

    Draught beer.

    Why would you care what those stuffy stuck in there ways people would think. Surely it's about making and serving great beer. Not about what some organisation tells you how you should do it.

    Hopsteep Brewing

    Sounds tasty, need to brew myself a Belgium style beer. Have one more other brew to do first though. Let us know what it's like after conditioning.

    Just nabbed a 1/4 cask! Imperial Stout meets wood experiment!

    You should aim to brew a larger volume than the cask will take, because the last thing you want is to be short and leave any headspace whatsoever. Ok. If its dry you need to get it soaking last month but if not right now will have to do. Is it clean? If it is. I would recommend doing a quick...

    Just nabbed a 1/4 cask! Imperial Stout meets wood experiment!

    Few things to say about this. You should get a good flavour from the cask. It will then subtly change taking on flavours from the beers you put in. Is it setup like a normal beer cask with 2 openings? Shive and keystone. You should defently leak test it. If it is made correctly the pressure...

    Hopsteep Brewing

    I can't see the wires but your setup is presumably a 50L electric, if so I have similar and have a couple of questions, what efficiencies do you normally get and what do your pots look like inside, are they false bottom or bazooka filters or something else entirely. Just curious as I would...

    Cornelius keg beer storage

    I have been using cornys for a number of years and have never had a noticeable metallic taste. However I have never had a lager in one, untill now seems fine at the moment but I'll report back if anything changes.

    If you mean the shank that the tap connects to it need a a 21mm hole I believe

    My kegorator build

    I'm not sure, and that is the exact reason I made one from wood. Two full kegs combined will total over 50kg so I wouldn't want to risk it.

    Cheapest place to buy Silicone O-Rings?

    Get a big set from screwfix for all your o-ring needs.

    Kegging a Polypin

    Can't see any problem, just take care to keep the oxygen out when transferring and give the keg a good purge.

    Kit v All Grain Costs

    Usually costs me 35p - 60p depending on ingredients. This could be reduced down by reuseing yeast or compromising the ingredients. Could probably do a reasonable ale for 20p pint. Just wouldn't be overly exiting for me to drink.

    Home bar

    You probably want pure CO2, what container is your Coors in, do you have any other refrigeration? More details would be helpful.

    Already to give up

    Actually I'm not sure this will work. I thought you where trying to connect to 3/8 beer line. Can you not just attach a 12mm pipe to the 3/8 then clamp the 1/2 pipe over that. Not perfect but should at least make it work in the short term.
