    5l kegs (carbonation issues)

    Hi, Really need some advice on force carbing a keg! Recently decided to get a couple of 5l (kegland mini kegs - 5l as per the picture). I brew in 10l batches so the size is perfect. The idea was to keg lagers and APAs and force carbonate and continue bottling other beers as usual. I must be...

    Had some leftover ingredients from a stout and decided to go a bit left field for me and brew a maple and blueberry stout.

    Mangrove Jack's Chitosan finings

    Just wondered if anyone has tried the Mangrove Jack's Chitosan finings? I Currently use gelatine finings when I want a light beer to clear quickly. Works well but I read the benefit of these are they work well at ale temps (instead of chilling beer post fermentation and adding gelatine). They...

    Hi, I just wondered whether anyone has tried someting like this for dispensing small amounts of beer? I was thinking of this but perhaps with a 16g C02 type bulb and mini regulator. I currently bottle and mainly have no issues with this. However, I can see this being useful for lagers /...

    Crossmyloof "Hell" Lager Yeast - opinions

    Has anyone had a go with the relatively new Crossmyloof Hell lager yeast? I need a new house lager strain after my WLP830 has been reused 7 times. I was considering just going for the same again or something like Wyeast Munich Lager 2308 but thought if the Hell is decent, cheap and with the...

    Dark Belgian Candi Sugar - Maltmiller

    Got a Belgian dubbel on to brew today. Not a style I've gone for before and I used 150g dark Belgian Candi sugar from Maltmiller with a 3kg base of pilsner malt. This was for a 10l batch. Brewday was smooth enough but the colour of the wort was much lighter than I expected. At first I thought...

    Fuller's yeast (WlP002) - final gravity

    I recently harvested some yeast from a bottle of Fuller's Bengal Lancer for a clone attempt of the beer. Beersmith predicted an FG of 1013 (OG 1055). This was with a mash temperature of 64c (lower than I would usually mash as beersmith predicted FG of 1015 with mash temp of 66c). So 84%...

    Fuller's yeast (WlP002) - phelonic?

    I have cultured some yeast from a bottle of Bengal Lancer (I understand supposedly equivalent to the WLP0002 strain). All has gone well in terms of yeast growth. Im brewing with it today and had a little taste of the starter just to check as I always do. It's quite strongly phelonic / clove like...
