    priming the Keg

    Ah seeet so you could just skip the priming and hook it up to the gas for a few days instead 🤷‍♂️ Hope it tastes good

    How many more brews will you make in 2021

    I made a Mexican mole/ hot chocolate stout (with habanero from my chilli harvest) a few weeks back which is sitting in the keg til Xmas as I still have a smoked Porter on and thought this would benefit from a good spell sitting. Also now realised that the mango milkshake ipa was getting...

    priming the Keg

    Just in case it’s not explicitly clear from other replies as you’re a n00b… The sugar you meant for priming but added at the start will have been eaten by yeast. It’s a simple sugar (I assume) and it will have gobbled it up. So it will have effected your beer in that you will have created more...

    Connecting pump to klarstein mash kettle

    Cheers not seen that. Will have a butchers. No I didn’t take whole tap off just unscrewed the hexagonal/ star shaped grip by the spout on the front of the tap which enabled me to screw a double female connector on and then the disconnect. I had tried getting it off before posting but felt solid...

    Connecting pump to klarstein mash kettle

    Don’t worry. I am stupid. Wrench on the tap and it came off and I have the parts. Maybe posting this thread and shaming myself helped subconsciously. Will leave it up for anyone else as silly in same situation.

    Connecting pump to klarstein mash kettle

    Hi all I feel like I’m being really stupid here, hoping someone can help me. I recently got a pump for mashing, and have been trying to work out how to connect to the tap on my mash kettle. I intended to use the pump on my last brew day but realised I needed more parts, so ordered some...

    Ferment temperature went crazy… ruined?

    Excellent! Looks like we both got away with brewing over the two weeks of summer we got this year 😂

    Ferment temperature went crazy… ruined?

    Just reporting back so if anyone searches this for the same problem… the NEIPA settled down after a couple of weeks and the flavours I was unsure about originally disappeared. Very drinkable and others don’t notice anything untoward. Moral of the story, don’t chuck it out especially if it was...

    Ferment temperature went crazy… ruined?

    Yeah thanks for that. I think the problem is the slight fusel hint might be preventing me enjoying the hop aroma that I have saturated it with 😂 will only Chuck it if it’s not enjoyable to drink. Interesting that your temperatures went that high though!

    Ferment temperature went crazy… ruined?

    So I still honestly am not 100% sure I dodged a bullet. I think it tastes boozy in a not good way but it’s really subtle and more at the end of the glass. Need to get someone else to taste it but starting to brew it’s replacement hopefully later today

    Ferment temperature went crazy… ruined?

    Yeah will see I guess, happy with the colour but defo a touch darker than what was gunning for. More concerned that I dodge any fumey off flavours! When the lightning hit earlier I turned off all the leccy except the keezer and pulled a glass off to see how it was now it was cooled and it’s...

    Ferment temperature went crazy… ruined?

    To those who have had a batch ruined from high temperatures in the past, at what point do you notice the off taste? I kegged and connected to the line last night and whilst might be a touch green I’m not detecting any petrol/ ethanol like vibes… YET, but not sure if that comes after aging? I...

    Ferment temperature went crazy… ruined?

    Thr other conundrum is dry hop then cold crash or cold crash then dry hop and been reading all the different views on that. I’m planning to cold crash after the hops have been in 1/2 days so today at some point to try and get best of both worlds

    Ferment temperature went crazy… ruined?

    Yeah I will probably experiment if the collection jar method proves too tricky but I like that can add the hops fresh from fridge and purge them at any time. 100% will put stir bar magnet in the jar next time at least tho

    Ferment temperature went crazy… ruined?

    Yeah altho I’ve seen videos where they fly up like they’ve been shot out of a cannon so I think it was more n00b user error on my part this time, but if I had put a stir bar in there would have had zero probs. Check this video at 7.50, for example. It’s like a hop bomb when he pulls the lever...

    Ferment temperature went crazy… ruined?

    I did consider the bag with magnets method but in the end decided to upgrade to fermzilla in part to do pressure fermentation and dry hop using the collection jar. When I was talking through with my mate who brews commercially he felt that the hops would degrade a fair bit sitting in the...
