Re: Boots metal barrel lid

I think I have a spare lid if you are after one. Will check measurements but it has a s30 valve. It is black plastic. Think it cost me about £15, but could do it for £10 inc delivery.

Let me know if you are in need.

Re: Wilco Dark Velvet Stout

N worries, glad to have helped. Up to you about the 50/50 split. I would personally go all spray malt if I was to do this brew again, but that is personal preference. If you want body, perhaps go all spray malt if you intend to brew to 22l?

Hope this helps

Re: Wilco Dark Velvet Stout

Not really. It is an ok kit. I would really use 1kg of spray malt (don't skimp and use sugar) and brew short to 20l. I made the mistake of using sugar with this kit and using beer kit enhancer and it was ok, took a long time to be even passable and I still have some bottles left that nobody really w...

Re: Brew Masons Hand Made Beer Kit Review

I agree Jim. I did a little search, and it seems only one place sells this stuff. No reviews of the product.

Re: Speeding up the process!!! (FERMENTING-DRINKING)

Hi. I have very recently brewed this. I brewed four weeks ago and bottled two weeks ago. Tastes very good already. Tasted good after two weeks in the FV. I would dry hop as soon as gravity is low. The dry hops may help to mask off flavours as well from no conditioning time.

Re: Simcoe T90 2015

Thanks Dean. How will you repackage them because I probably won't be able to use them for a while so don't want them to deteriorate.

Thanks

Co2 - food grade

Recently purchased some of the mini kegs that have a mini co2 regulator and they take a threaded co2 bulb. Does Co2 need to be good grade? Are there any risks with using those that aren't?

Thanks

Brilliant write up MB. I love my Grainfather, it has reignited my spark for brewing and makes me want to brew regularly.

Re: Crossmyloof yeast

Got a batch of Old Peculiar clone on the go at the moment using CML's Real Ale yeast. An odd criticism perhaps but I feel this yeast is unacceptably vigorous!! I expect a Belgian wit yeast to be leaping out of the fermenter (especially at wit fermentation temperatures with wheat in the grain bill) ...

Re: Fruit wheat beer

Hi Dean, I think that Raspberry would probably be a safe bet. It is also readily available in frozen form for you to use. From memory I used about 2.5kg of Frozen Fruit (I used summer fruit mix). Using Summer Fruit mix meant that it was fruity but it was also quite tart to begin with. People liked i...

Re: Over sugared the brew

Jim, you could also buy the 5L water bottles from the shops. They are sterile, so you can drink the water, pour in the fruit juice and then add your yeast. That way you could brew more than just 1l a time.
