Re: Yeast?

For your 1st batch of turbo cider I wouldn't. There's more than enough sugar in the apple juice alone to produce something with a high ABV.

Re: Lager with saaz/motueka

I've used it a few times and only used 1 pack per brew. 14c for 5 days then 20c for a total of 14 days.

Re: Flaked Maize & head retention

Over the last year I've been doing the same addition but using cheap supermarket porridge oats. I haven't experienced or noticed any clarity problems and it's a very cheap way to add some body and head to the beer.

Re: Inkbird Grommet

As long as they are not in contact with the beer it will be fine. I've been using o rings for the same job and no issues here.

Re: Mandarin Dream

This extract is supposed to be good as I believe it contains no added oil https://www.sainsburys.co.uk/webapp/wcs/stores/servlet/gb/groceries/nielsen-massey-pure-orange-extract-60ml?gclid=EAIaIQobChMImaf96bCn5AIVBrDtCh1LCwOSEAQYBiABEgIAjfD_BwE&storeId=10151&langId=44&krypto=YsHl3eRu7hJQN%2BV%2BwluJr...

Re: Too much froth

Are you sure you've got mixed gas? Those bottles require a different regulator.

Try reducing the pressure slightly and see if you get a steady pour.
