Re: Old Beers & Brewing

Hello Edd, Thanks for the reply, i will look out for your post for Northgate ales. You mentioned Old Chester, i think that Greenhalls carried on brewing it after they closed the Northgate down in 69. A lot of people turned their nose up at Greenhalls bitter but the Original was a favourite of mine. ...

Re: Old Beers & Brewing

Hello Edd, I visited Chester archives some years ago looking for Northgate brewery records. I copied a Bitter recipe and a Pale from 1900, I can't lay my hands on them right now but even if i could, i would'nt know how to convert bushels of Barley and Wheat into usable measures. Good on you for shar...

Tubs / Containers for hops

Hello all,
I am splitting and re siting some of my hop plants, i'm thinking of putting them in a tub / container so that the roots don't spread too far. Can anyone advise what size tub would be big enough.

Hens tooth

Hello,
For anyone interested, my wife picked up a bottle of Hens Tooth earlier today because she noticed that the whole of the bottom of the bottle was covered with yeast sediment and thought i might be able to use it. Does anyone know if this is there primary strain or conditioning strain.

Re: First time using Wyeast liquid yeast

Hello Yeast Whisperer,
Thanks for your reply, when you crop the yeast do you store in the fridge or do you time your kegging / bottling so that you can pitch straight into a fresh batch.
How much of the cropped yeast would you pitch into a 25L batch.
Regards,
Dave

Re: Sheperd Neame Christmas Ale

Thanks for the SRM chart, it's a very moorish amber ale ABV 7% with Pale and Crystal malts on the label. I've read a Roger Protz review saying that they use Admiral and E K G hops. Well worth a try at £1.50 a bottle.
