    Long fermentation of all grain

    Hi I've recently brewed my first all grain (stove top style) kit. Had a lot of activity with the fermentation within the first few days. But 4 weeks on, it looks like it is still fizzing. By that, I mean theres still small bubbles being released. Is this normal? As it's in a demijohn I can see...

    Crushing Grain Without a Mill

    Hi All, A recent order with maltmiller for fine crushed maris otter resulted in a delivery of uncrushed maris otter. I don't have a mill, or know anyone that does, and checked with my local brewshop and they don't either (found it strange they bought it in crushed, but hey). Any suggestions on...

    Do I need to kiln my barley? (All Grain Recipe)

    After years of making beer with extract, I'm thinking of trying an All Grain recipe. I don't have room for any specialist equipment so I'll be trying Brew in a Bag on my stove. As I understand it (please correct me on this if I'm wrong) once I've sprouted my barley I need to kiln or bake it...

    Howdy all! I've been home brewing cider and and extract beers for a couple years now, but recently obtained a grainfather all-in-one system. This will be my first all grain experience, so i was wondering if you guys and gals had any tips for brewing, fermentation, bottling, etc.?
  6. Stout Brewing

    Think I might be hooked...

    So, on Sunday I finally cracked a bottle of my first all grain, own recipe beer (a Chocolate Milkshake Stout, at least that’s what I’m calling it)…and was bloody pleased! Before that I had done one Brooklyn Brew Shop kit, which came out average at best, so on Sunday’s tasting I have to admit I...

    How to condition/prime

    Hi there I'm about to strike out into all grain brewing after years of extract. I got a whole load of money to invest into equipment, and have ended up with a grainfather, the grainfather conical fermenter and glycol chiller I've got the grains for the following recipe...

    Lots of yeast activity, nothing in the airlock

    Hello, I just brewed a DIPA (all grain) and 36 hours after I have no activity in the airlock. I can see lots of activity in the fermenter itself - particles swimming around like crazy - there’s a real party going on in there! Just nothing in the bubbler. Anyone any ideas what, if anything might...

    Hey, Guys, After 5-6 extract "brews", it is time to do my first All Grain with my brand new Brew Monk Magnus. I picked a Chocolate Vanilla Porter as it needs a longer maturing and I hope it will become great for the winter days and Christmas. I took the recipe from brewers friend -...

    Ace/Brew Devil/Klarstein/Hopcat 50L

    Can anyone tell me if it’s worth getting the 50L version of the above all-in-one systems if you’re mostly gonna brew 23L batches of beer? I’ve noticed the price to go up from the 30L to the 50L version is about £50 one some versions so should I just get bigger or is there going to be any draw...

    Newby Grain Brewer

    Hi all, I am a fairly amateur brewer having done about half a dozen kits, all with decent results. I've been offered the chance to use a Grainfather for a bit, but have very little idea about grain brewing. Someone pointed me in the direction of your forum and suggested I may get some...

    A couple of questions

    Hello all I’m very new to all this and have a couple of questions that I’m hoping someone can answer for me. 1/Doing an all grain brew, does it really matter if the wort is left over night to cool down rather than use a cooler. 2/once the starch has turned to sugar after the mash can the...

    All grain boil - to tip or not to tip that is the question

    So I have a Brupaks electric boiler and I am doing all grain brews. At the end of the boil when I tranfer the wort from the boiler to the fermentation vessel I generally tip the boiler to get all of the wort - waste not want not. Usually I use a fine grain bag to strain the wort and there is a...

    Preparing equipment for first brew.

    I've finally made the jump to all grain brewing and have purchased my first all grain ingredient kit. In preparation for this I've started to test my equipment. The boiler works like a charm and got up to the strike water temperature within good time. However when I attempted to put 12 litres...
