    Black garlic

    Anyone tried making it? I've vacuum sealed about 12 big organic garlic bulbs, put a few layers of foil on the bottom of my old slow cooker (which doesn't have a keep warm setting, just low or high), then plugged an inkbird in and set it to 60c. I also put a closed jar of cooking oil in the...

    Double Pilsner - glucoamylase?

    Anyone used glucoamylase? I am considering a double pilsner, basically a pilsner malt smash, 7-8% and a good amount of Saaz. I don't want it to be heavy and will probably do a step mash, but I think I will end up with a pretty high FG whatever I do, so was considering using some glucoamylase...

    Mead made with Kolsch yeast

    I was looking through my yeast stash and it's getting quite dire. I had a lager yeast, a hefeweizen yeast and a kolsch, as well as some wilko wine yeast which I've used in mead and wines before. Bit bored of the wine yeast so I was tempted to try the hefe, but I know lots of the good flavours...

    Brewzilla plug warped

    Had a double brew day in my Brewzilla 3.1.1, and when I was cleaning and went to pull the plug from the socket it was completely stuck. Had to pry it off with a screwdriver. Looks like it has got hot enough to fuse to the socket and warp slightly. I remember reading a while back that you...

    Reverse osmosis filter... Does it need cleaning?

    So I haven't used my RO all winter, not brewed for months so it's just been sat there, under the sink, full of water. I bought new DI resin so will change that once it arrives but do you need to clean the rest? It's going to be boiled after it's collected so I guess just running it through for...

    Punk IPA (Incredibly Poor Ale)

    Picked up 2 bottles from the shop across the road (they have a terrible range - this is the only craft type beer they do). Opened the first and took a swig, tasted like an old shoe. Poured it into a glass and it looked like a pint of mild. 2nd bottle didn't look oxidised, and maybe my taste...

    Anyone used fresh home grown hops?

    I'm brewing for the first time in months. I have been growing some hops. It's not been the best year (better than the 1 hop I got last year though). They are starting to turn slightly brown so I think they are ready to go. So my plan is to just make a simple pale ale, small bittering charge...

    Mould and other weird growths in fermentation vessels

    I left a few fermentation vessels in my garage for about 6 weeks. Well I'm planning a brew tomorrow so I have just come to set up for it and have seen that I left them full of water from my last brewday. Mostly sodium percarbonate that I was soaking them in to remove scum, but obviously the...

    Subscription services

    Anyone a member of any? I got a couple of Beer52 deliveries a while back and they were quite good but pricey. I've seen that brewdog have jumped in and are offering 8 small "sessionable" (so low %) cans for £20 + £3.95 postage. For me they would be long gone in one night. Is anyone actually...

    Keg fermentation - cold crash

    Anyone who keg ferments, do you take the spunding valve off before cold crashing? Do you attach a gas line during cold crash?

    Keg fermentation issue

    I think my fermentation keg gas post output is blocked with crud! There's fermentation material in the lines leading from the keg, the prv was off gassing and the valve was at the top of its range. Tried pulling the prv and it gasses a massive amount then blows fermentation crud everywhere...

    Robobrew / Beersmith- Brewhouse efficiency?

    I keep overshooting my OG by quite a lot. I use Beersmith (Robobrew equipment profile) and I usually keep the BH efficiency at the standard 72%, it used to get me close enough so never bothered changing it but recently I am a fair few points over. For example, my last 2 brews were OG estimated...

    Vinegar

    Anyone make their own vinegar? I bought some fresh apple cider vinegar with the mother in a while back, I am making cider so decided to sacrifice a couple litres for vinegar. I made cider with store bought juice (8 litres apple, 2 litres mango and peach) then siphoned a couple of litres off...

    Thai-PA

    I was planning a pad thai for my dinner tonight and thought about an idea I've had for a while... Thai-PA An idea this 'good' has got to have been done before, and after a search on google it has, many times, but not quite like how I am planning. I'm thinking a basic pale ale base (my base...

    Harvesting yeast from NEIPA

    So I recently brewed an NEIPA with Kveik, I was wondering if there's any kind of technique for harvesting the yeast when it's mixed with so much hops? I've transferred what was left in the fermenter into a demijohn and stuck that in the fridge for now. It's almost 4L of beer, yeast, trub and a...

    Kveik - temperature question

    I have a Kveik beer in the brew fridge we speak. Pitched yeast Saturday night, it was absolutely roaring at 35c all Sunday then this morning it's slowed right down and temp is registering 30c and tested gravity and it's at 1.016 which is probably very close to finishing now (sg 1.070). My...
