Re: Stainless vs brass for CO2 system?

I’ve tried the cheap welding ones and in my opinion they’re a waste of time. Mine gave up after about a year. I now use one of these [https://www.themaltmiller.co.uk/product ... regulator/] and has been going strong for a couple of years now.

Re: Do pH probes 'go off'?

I've often wondered about buying a cheaper one, particularly since finding the cheap probe to be at least equal to the much more expensive one. How frequently do you calibrate yours and well does it hold calibration? https://uploads.tapatalk-cdn.com/20190716/e1412b36a7d0408308357fba89a8ea87.jpg Fir...

Re: Do pH probes 'go off'?

I had a similar situation with my rather expensive Milwaukee ph meter ( a good £60-£80 I think) worked fine for a couple years, always cleaned and stored the probe in storage solution. It wouldn’t calibrate at all and a new probe was more than a new one! So I bought one of these https://uploads.tap...

Re: 1.002 FG reading on IPA

How much of the recipe was sugar? If it was a high ratio that could account for a low FG, although as you say that is rather low. I was about to say if it tastes nice then don’t worry, but as you dislike chinook... [emoji23]

Shiny FV

I know this has been asked before so I apologise. I’m looking to move over to stainless for my fermenting vessel. While I’ve had no problems using plastic, I don’t really trust it, and I always worry I’ve not cleaned them enough. As the rest of my equipment is stainless it seems silly not to upgrade...

Planted these a couple of months ago. They’re a good 7 foot now. Hoping to get a few cones off them

An early taste from the kegerator tonight and it's not bad [emoji106] not amazing but not bad! Quite fruity which must be due to the invert sugar. Be interesting to try it again after some conditioning

Have a look at the web listing
Ingredients:-
Dodecylbenzenesulfonic Acid 15%
Phosphoric Acid 50%
Inert Ingredients 35%


Then google the Star San MSDS, the ingredients are exactly the same.
I've been using the malt miller stuff for years with no issues [emoji106]

Re: 1910 Fuller's AK

I have stopped using liquid yeast and switched to CML dried because it is so much easier and very cheap, however when I did use liquid I always made a starter a day or two before the brewday. That way you know if you have viable yeast and should have a pitchable amount for your brew. I'm guessing y...

1910 Fuller's AK

Well this is a first... I've had no activity from the fermentor (I know that doesn't mean much) so on Sunday I raised the temperature to 18 degrees and roused the wort a few times throughout the day. Still nothing this evening, the air lock wasn't even displaced. Took a gravity reading and it's not ...

How long did you boil the sugar for when inverting it?
For the number 2 invert it took about an hour and a half I think and the no.3 two and a half hours. Took ages [emoji23] made up a bit extra which is now in the freezer for another day
