    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...

    Voss

    I've had musty old books/mushroom kind of flavour once which wasn't enjoyable. I wouldn't worry about fermenting smells though they will likely fade as the yeast clean up.

    Dry Yeast for Beavertown Neck Oil

    Sainsbury's has an open source mandate on all beers. "Secrets are just lies you haven't told yet" - Gary Sainsbows That, or its listed on the ingredients on the can 🤣

    Double Pilsner - glucoamylase?

    I have a late start on a Thursday so have started drinking a few beers on a Wednesday night. I was thinking of brewing something around 3-4% but with an SG of something like 1.030. I can drink twice as much for the same calories 😂

    Double Pilsner - glucoamylase?

    Ok, overnight mash it is. I do still have my eye on it to make a "diet beer" for midweek drinking though 😂 Out of interest what did you use it for @An Ankoù

    Double Pilsner - glucoamylase?

    Fair enough, but I wouldn't really call it a "stupid fad chemical addition" any more than using a powdered single yeast strain. It's all microbiology. It's an fungal enzyme, and is by no means new, it's been used for many years for many applications, including in a number of commercial beers...

    Stella SMASH Clone Recipe Check

    https://beerandwinejournal.com/can-co2-form-a-blanket/ "Co2 blanket" is a myth. But anecdotally I haven't noticed any issues with oxidation either but I just worry because if it does happen with a lager that's 2-4 months down the pan.

    Stella SMASH Clone Recipe Check

    I always wonder about this, I heard that lowering the temperature causes oxygen to flow back into the fermentation vessel, I've done some keg fermenting but didn't have a great time with it myself plus I don't like losing those few pints to trub. I also like using a clear FV for lagers so I can...

    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...

    Stella SMASH Clone Recipe Check

    Were you planning a diacetyl rest? I always creep my lager up in temp after the first week or so. Usually something like 0.5c a day for a week, or until it's done fermenting. It keeps the yeast activity going and gets it to finish a little quicker and gets the diacetyl rest done at the same...

    Luddite asking for Technical advise on Ispindels?

    I've been considering this too, I think if you are expecting something to give you perfect readings this is not the tool, but for a "ballpark" idea I think they can be useful. I'm still on the fence, there's a fair bit that can go wrong I think and it needs a bit of computer knowledge to get...

    Dry Hopping

    I've done it a few times and not noticed much in the way of vegetal tastes either, and I have an IPA on tap at the moment that has 100g hops in a mesh hop filter. I have a spare keg though and was considering transfering out, just because I've heard that's the done thing...

    Dry Hopping

    Anyone who keg hops like @Brew_DD2 do you leave the hops in or do your transfer to a second keg after a few days?

    Dry Hopping

    I don't really see many people like that myself, but I will say one of the things I like about this hobby is the innovation and all the options available. Those guys are probably the next generation of the kit and kilo brewers of old. They want a no fuss way to make a pint, and with minimal...

    Neon Raptor Bash AG kit

    Good luck, I'd be interested to hear how it turns out and what the FG is too.

    Neon Raptor Bash AG kit

    I bet the beer will be great anyway. I was drinking a couple of Neon Rapter beers at the weekend and they were all really good. If you try brewing it again, you could try adding some rice hulls, lower the temp a couple of degrees and see how that affects it. My guess is gummy mash plus high...

    Neon Raptor Bash AG kit

    70c is high for a mash, surprising they suggest that temp. They must be aiming for a higher body beer. It's on the edge of denaturing the enzymes as far as I know. I know you said it didn't, but if it's possible the mash got above 70 at all that could be your problem. I usually mash at 65-66...
