Re: any electrical wizzes? temperature controller query

You can also keep the Inkbird controllers attached to the side of fridge by using the super strength Velcro strips, if you are wanting to keep things off the wall.
I have a feeling you want to build something though ;)

I still have a couple of bottles of this. Will be opening one later on this evening. Ten years to the day! [emoji1305][emoji1305]
Now that’s how to do a thread revival, you will have to let us know how it is.

Re: What's the science of bottle-conditioning?

Bottle conditioning will allow things to change in the bottle as it’s still live beer. I would try and brew your beer and batch size then so that you can taste a bottle from a batch every couple of weeks and keep tasting notes against the brew, that way you will find when beer tends to peak for you ...

What was the beer? Some beers will benefits from aging, whereas others e.g. hefeweizen will not.

Just do a search for the author on the UK (or your local) site and you can then download it.

Re: Newbie after all the help in the world [emoji3]

Cider can be as simple as bunging some yeast in some apple juice. Or to be a bit more precise, follow the Bulldog instructions but starting with 23 litres (or less) of apple juice rather than (their concentrate + water). Or for the full Swedish cider experience, 30% apple juice + 7% sugar plus wate...

Re: Crisis Brewing

You really need to try a diagram based spunding valve, I don’t think you would ever use your overly complex, requiring gas, setup ever again; you are right about the poppet ones not being great though (they can stick and/or be inaccurate). I’m tempted to get one of those regulators to try with a spa...

The uploader has changed it, possibly the supplier getting in trouble. You don’t get to see it that closely in the video but at least we know it’s in the way now.

Re: Anyone tried doubling 20L Braumeister volume like this?

I always just fill the BM with water the night before (30-38L) and treat it. It is then programmed to heat the water for when I wake up. I just draw off the excess before mash in into a pot/fv and then use it for sparging, it might mean that it takes slightly longer to get to a boil but the temperat...

Re: Newbie after all the help in the world [emoji3]

I would buy one of their starter kits then, it comes with everything you need including 40 screw top PET bottles. You can just reuse glass beer/cider ones if you have a capper but this will make it easy as you don’t have to worry about crud inside them and it’s one less thing to think about first ti...

Re: Newbie after all the help in the world [emoji3]

You can get fizzy cider in bottles, you bottle with some measured extra sugar and the secondary fermentation will make it fizzy. Kegging is great but you need quite a few bits a pieces and you will need a CO2 bottle supplier in your area. Still want to keg or are you happy to try bottling (you can u...

God luck with the negotiations! Your account probably got deleted for GDPR reasons.
There are a lot of one vessel systems about now at different budgets that have a small footprint if that helps.
