    WANTED Corny Setup

    Thanks all for your replies. You are right, used Corny kits are hard to come by for reasons as you have mentioned. I only ask as I have recently started my own very small brewery and have been producing bottle conditioned Hard Seltzers. I now wish to start kegging for serving at markets and...

    Siphon to Priming time

    I agree with this also. If you do decide to chill the brew down I would be inclined to give everything a stir again to rouse the yeast again before bottling. My thoughts still lie with the question as to why you are wishing to seperate the two tasks? It really doesn't take that much time to...

    Siphon to Priming time

    Is that 2 hours just the actual filling of bottles, or sterilising aswell? A bottle wand and larger syphon tube would speed up filling. Remember though, you want to fill the bottles up slowly, you don't want to splash and draw lots of oxygen during this stage.

    Please tell me...

    interesting to see how many people are not that fussed about ensuring sanitary conditions for their brews. Personally, considering how much effort goes into making my beer (all grain) the last thing I want is risking contamination. I consider cleanliness and yeast health the two most important...

    Please tell me...

    Yep there is.... I also use star san! It's a no rinse 3 minute sanitiser where only the foam need touch the surface. I generally sanitise whilst bottling. I use 2 large flexible plastic laundry tubs. I first clean my bottles with oxyclean in the tubs. I then fill 1 tub with 5 litres...

    Yes you can! What you describe is a 2 stage ferment, also known as a secondary because you are technically conditioning / carbonating in the bottles, not 'fermenting'. There are loads of threads and options on this. Mainly to do with whether it actually makes for a better béer or not vs risk on...

    Can I store/ keep/ reuse used sanitizer solution?

    Not sure if it's the same with VWP, but with Star San you can. Aslong as it stays clear and not cloudy your fine. This depends on what water you use, if you sterilise with pre boiled water your usually good.

    Westvleteren 12!!!

    Wow! That is a lot of westie! Of course I could tell you that if you were allowed to sell any then your stash could be worth a lot of money! Even the empty bottles and beer caps seem to sell. Now the big question is, are the cobwebs St Sixtus, if so they'll fetch well on ebay, lol.
