Re: How soon to drink

Depends entirely on the beer, but some have a really quick turnaround, the urweisse that I just brewed I started drinking 6 days from brewing. Most bitters I'm drinking within two weeks, assuming a flocculant yeast. That's bottled and I never use auxiliary finings 8 days from brewing urweiss. All ty...

Re: Hazy Jane Recipe

They've been trend in the UK for a number of years now and started gaining popularity in the US well over ten years ago, so I'm not sure they are a "fad" anymore. And brewing a good one takes a lot of technical ability, as much as a proper pils for example does. I don't brew them personally as I ten...

Re: Bottled Water for a Hefeweizen

Ashbeck from Tesco is a go to for soft low alkalinity water, unless it has changed. The good thing about a hefeweiss though, is that having a higher mash pH is actually desirable (5.7-5.8 say), mainly for the ferulic acid rest and it also promotes the hazyness. So acid additions aren't typically nee...

Re: Why is my lager this colour!?

What is the washer made from on the swingtop? If it's silicone it is horribly O2 permeable. You get O2 gradually getting into any bottle though. You can fill bottles fairly full, a few mm should be enough to allow for some thermal expansion. The amount of space that a bottle wand leaves behind is fa...

Re: Proper job Clone

Are you confusing it with Sharps Doom Bar? That is a poor beer indeed. Proper Job is an excellent beer.

Re: Making Agar Slants (Slopes) - In Pictures

Hanglow is partly right, if you were to follow a standard autoclave protocol, but if you extend the time it is possible to sterilise in a bog standard pressure cooker. Thanks for the correction, I've put off doing this sort of thing before because every time I'd searched for a high pressure cooker ...

Re: Making Agar Slants (Slopes) - In Pictures

Most pressure cookers in the UK won't get to high enough pressure to sterilise unfortunately, so I think that would be your problem

Re: Commercial examples of an Amber West Coast IPA

That was a good one last time I had it! Other DIPAs might be what you want then. Celebration from Sierra Nevada is one perhaps?


The only american red IPA I can think of is Thornbridge Colorado Red, but I just checked and that is only 5.9%

Re: Commercial examples of an Amber West Coast IPA

Three easily obtainable ones that spring to mind are Sierra Nevada Torpedo Magic Rock Cannonball Brewdog Jackhammer Most british takes on west coast IPAs don't tend to be strong enough both in bitterness and malt sweetness I think, so I'd probably call them transatlantic IPAs, although it's been qui...

Re: Brewing advice needed please

If you are adding rubicon to the beer then it would probably be fine, I cant see anything there that would affect the fermentation. It does have some fructose that would ferment, so you could add some at bottling and account for that at the time.

You might have better luck with mango puree though?
