    Nice, neat setup. Picture mine just like that except the exact opposite.

    Mead.

    4kg Asda Pure Honey
    2 Cinnamon Sticks
    6 Whole cloves
    60ml Asda Extra Special Valencian Orange Extract

    10L @ 1110 SG
    Pitched 14g Bulldog Mead Yeast ( probably too much )

    Experimental 2nd mead.

    We have a local honey producer when I win lottery I might get my honey from them.

    Concerned Wilco are appear to be stopping stocking homebrew gear, my 2 locals have reduced stock and haven't had sanitiser for 2 weeks.

    Belgian stout brewed yesterday; fermenting away.

    Oatmeal stout base (ish) with some tweaks - pale, flaked oats, caramunich 3, Amber, special b, chocolate and roasted barley. Pitched CML belgian abbey strain - first time with this one.

    It's ripping away just now after taking off like a shot. Had active fermentation within 4 hours - I'm always a bit nervous of those super short lag times. Anyway, fingers crossed.

    Wilko dark velvet stout
    500g EDME
    1kg BKE
    250g Maltodextrin
    125g dark brown sugar
    125g golden syrup
    4 shots very strong filter coffee

    Brewed short to 20 litres

    Pitch yeast at / fermented at 20°C

    OG: 1.074/1.072/1.076-ish. (kept fluctuating as the washing machine was on)

    May have over-egged this one but first brew in a year and first to use new fermenting setup. Thinking of calling it 'Satan's Bum-hole' if it ends up as strong as I think it's going to be. Wish me luck

    Very new to this brewing stuff but that sounds like a winner.
    And no need to sanitise if you're drinking from satans poo chute

    Just finished a Belgian Triple an hour ago and put down all my notes.
    I got an OG of 1.096
    I used 7 pounds of extract, 3 pound of pilsner for steeping and 3 pounds of table sugar. I also used one M-41 and one T-58. I'm interested to see what happens.
    Basement is at 70F. I don't temp control but the basement stays right around there for this time of year.

    Just bottled my first ever brew.
    A magnum elderflower cider.
    The benchtop capper and little bottler made it a breeze.
    It did leave quite a bit in the bottom tho.
    As i left most of the gunge in the primary could i use the bottler without the sediment trap?
    Thanks in advance Steve

    I use a fine mesh filter on my racking cane when transferring from the fv to the bottling bucket and then there is no need to use another filter when bottling.

    Given how warm it is I may be setting myself up but just put cooling 23l of Mangrove Jacks Berliner style Sour ale.
    Have used 300g extra light dme plus same of dextrose.
    Currently it's sat in the sink - mains water coming out at 20C so I may be waiting a bit for it to come down from 28C.

    Citrus Pale ale, chilled to 36c and pitched Ragnar Kveik which I think is a Voss strain? pitched at 4pm it's been burping for an hour, first time using Kveik, gonna try top cropping and bottom harvesting with this. Watched David Heath's Video and doesn't look difficult.

    Just tried 3 bottles of my magnum elderflower cider brewed short to 21 litres.
    A bit early but a nice fizz and around 7% abv.
    Even the pixies that live in my ears like it!

    I brewed a Belgian Quad based on St Bernardus Abt 12. I just pitched at 21C. Room temperature is 19.4C.
    It's been about three hours and there's some slight activity which is what I wanted this time (not going full-bore after one hour).
    It's an extract but I reached my OG of 1.103. I used one pack of Mangrove Jack M-41 and one Safale T-58.
    I'm probably going to make it again tomorrow or the next.

    Brewed my first ever belgian today, an orange blossom tripel. Its got a very simple grist of 100% pilsner malt, mandarin orange peel in the boil and going to add orange blossom honey once the krausen has dropped. Its hopped to about 37 ibu with citra and mosaic. Quite untraditional i know, but it smells amazing. Og should come out at about 1.080 once i've added the honey. Just hoping cml belgian ale yeast does its job well.
