Re: Tilt hydrometer review

There is a big difference between storage space and processor or memory usage. The storage space isn't really relevant and is easy to change.

Re: Tilt hydrometer review

One image is designed to be run headless, i.e. no graphical interface running so you use SSH or similar from another machine. The reason for running headless is that it uses much less resources and gives you more leeway for running other things on the Pi.

Re: Tilt hydrometer review

<snip> Pressure fermenting does affect it but then you can account for this. <snip> I've started doing some fermenting under pressure, so interested in what further you have to say on this. I would take a look at the FB group for more specifics as my experience is limited to batches where I have cl...

Tilt hydrometer review

I would post in the tilt Facebook group, my experience with multiple Tilts isn't consistent with yours so it might be faulty. They are pretty quick to send out replacements if they think it is. Pressure fermenting does affect it but then you can account for this. Oh, also there are a few versions, f...

Re: Brewing alcohol free

Adding heat will cause enzymes (made of protein) to get faster and faster to a point where the protein unravels and become ineffective. Some will ravel back up, and become effective again, as it cools, but when starting to unravel at temperatures of 60-70C more likely the unravelling is permanent a...

Re: Wheeler's Beer Engine

I don't know how welcome this information will be, but I want to share someone's work here. A guy 'jimbob88', I have encountered on the Internet is trying to continue Graham's software legacy. He has produced a very creditable cross-platform version of Graham's Beer Engine, which he has called Whee...

Re: Brewing liquor question

The Graham Wheeler calculator often suggests the addition of calcium carbonate to hit a target water profile. Since calcium carbonate is highly insoluble in water, how does one add it and then actually get it to go fully into solution, whereby it will do what you think it is doing, as opposed to me...

Re: Base grains

Crisp Maris Otter for anything British/American, Weyermann Premier Pils for anything continental. Although today I'm brewing with the Weyermann Barke Pils, mainly thanks to a shortage of the Premier Pils malt, but I'm interested in the additional flavour it might bring. Weyermann seem to have a hug...

Crisp Crystal malts

It's confusing enough that it seems the Malt Miller has redesignated the Crisp Crystal malts to avoid confusion with buyers eg the light one is designated a standard crystal on the site. I noticed this a couple of months ago when imputing recipes in the Brewfather software, it was only when I looked...

Bottling from Corny?

You can do all sorts of cool things with carbonation caps from cleaning beer lines/taps, emptying/flushing beer engines between sessions to avoid stale beer, adding finings to kegs and with the Fermentasaurus 2 (due soon-ish) it looks like they are using these as their standard ports on the top and ...

Re: Bottling from Corny?

If it's just the odd beer and not for long term storage then a carbonation cap (or a handful of them) can be very useful to fill PET bottles with bright beer (ex fizzy drink bottles too). I have a Pegas and it's great but for doing the odd beer the carbonation cap is my preferred choice (I don't ha...
