Re: Using ferm. fridge for salami?

Maybe for interest. I used my fermentation fridge set at 2c to dry age a rib of beef sealed with butter for 60 days. The result was incredible tender beef. No mould on the butter but probably not a good medium. Oh and I had a cheep usb fan circulating air.

Demise of Hop and Grape

As this shop has closed does anyone get the grain from a supplier that can crush to order? Ihave a Braumeister and prefer a slightly coarser grind for better efficiency but as far as I know suppliers tend to crush finer

Re: Milk stout

Can I ask, what's the reasoning for adding lactose in the middle of the boil rather than the beginning?

Re: Dry hopping in the keg after force carbing?

I'm puzzled. How do you stop the beer foaming when you take the keg lid off or do you have to be very quick? :D

Re: Grain spilling out after mash

It's happened to me! If I remember right I didn't press the button to acknowledge that the mash had ended so the pump continued to work. Luckily I hit the button before losing grain over the side.

Re: Beer bottle labels

Beerlabelizer website for the labels, print them off, cut out, stick on with milk. Works great and simply washes off with hot water. Marvellous!
