    How much of this starter to pour off ?

    I made a 2L then 5L starter with the same yeast not long ago. I left it in the fridge for 48hrs, as Im led to believe that hazy layer is live yeast in suspension, after that it was 90% clear beer which I decanted then swirled the rest and chucked it in the new starter. Did the same for...

    Made a slight mistake

    Best beer I ever made was a frozen stout. Enjoy! If you only bottle 2.5l out of 5L I think you can assume the ABV is now double? Not sure how it will carb up, mine was in a keg. I’m sure some yeasties hunkered down and survived.

    I brewed 2 all grain beers in 5 hours

    Hey brewers I just thought I would share my experience today, maybe some will find it helpful, I expect some of you already do this in some form. I’m certainly going to be doing it more often, maybe even steeping speciality grains so as not to always being doing a smash. Basically I never...

    Cooper Canadian blonde beginner help

    If your looking to make fosters or Carling, don’t use any malt extract. Use brewing sugar. Keep your brew colder than recommended whilst it’s fermenting around 18C and leave it completely alone for a few weeks before you think about bottling

    Vienna lager water profile.

    Hi everyone. I’m brewing 60L of Vienna lager at the weekend, which will be one of 3 beers for a friends wedding in June. I’ve brewed this beer before with good results, however I’m really trying to dial in everything I can this time. My understanding of water profile/chemistry is extremely...

    Prices about to go up substantially

    I’ve not brewed for a year, just done an order for supplies and am shocked!!! Most things seem to have doubled in that time.

    Nice thread. Had a good read. I too have the Dan toombs books. I’ve spent hours making spice blends/ base sauce and marinating meat to make curries and trying to get that authentic BIR flavour. After the last curry I made with seasoned oil, spice stock, base curry etc etc I turned to wife and...

    Secret Santa Reviews 2020!

    English pale ale This beer poured perfectly clear, and a lovely golden colour with a small white fluffy head which quickly dispersed. Aroma is earthy and very much like a lager, and much the same with the flavour, in a good way! I had a really hard time trying to describe the flavour of this...

    Secret Santa Reviews 2020!

    My first beer, in my excitement I forgot to take a picture American amber This beer poured a deep amber colour (as per the name), however my steady pouring gave it no head. But it did give off a beautiful aroma of sweet malt and bright orange scents. With very low carbonation, this beer...
