Re: Starsan Discontinued ?

No final rinse. According to EU law, after using a sanitiser a final rinse is always required (for the pros). Regarding yeasts, yes, StarSan works well for yeast washing. If you ever get a chance to read the original Modernist Cuisine set it is a real eye opener to see how food safety laws around t...

Starsan Discontinued ?

Yes, but that comes with its own issues of proper storage etc. Not a problem for some that I know who use it but there are some less careful.

Re: Secondary CO2 Regulators

That's literally perfect! Exactly what I'm looking for. I'll be ordering a few from there now. Thank you so much for this. Much appreciated [emoji1] Take a look at the prices on 100m of beer line rolls whilst you are there, if you are already paying postage then it is very cheap and means you can j...

Options for conditioning/serving bigger than a bottle, but smaller than keg?

Not with that setup. Get a squeeze tattoo bottle or similar and clean the spout with sanitiser after each use, hopefully that will help. There are others on here who have used those taps before though that might be able to give you a better idea.

Re: Options for conditioning/serving bigger than a bottle, but smaller than keg?

I went ahead and ordered this one... https://www.darkfarm.co.uk/product/5l-mini-keg-and-flow-tap/# It’s the same seller as the eBay link above, but on their own website they had the 5L keg on sale in a weekly special offer thing. And with a flow control tap too, for £115 with free delivery [emoji10...

Re: Options for conditioning/serving bigger than a bottle, but smaller than keg?

I quite fancy a mini keg as well, and have been looking at the GrowlerWerks one for some time. My brews are all one or two gallons at a time so a mini keg would be ideal for me. The price point of the GrowlerWerks really puts me off though, plus the prospect of having to import spare parts of anyth...

Re: Options for conditioning/serving bigger than a bottle, but smaller than keg?

A bit OT, but what is the build quality of the 6l ones? The handle bar weld looks flimsy in the images, but is it? Looking at them for yeast slurry storage and put them on a gas flame to boil "sterile" (will not be pressurised). What's a UK price for a corny? When I hop over the border here to Germ...

Re: Options for conditioning/serving bigger than a bottle, but smaller than keg?

Mini-kegs! 2L, 5L, 10L. They are probably a better option than Corny kegs these days. e.g. https://www.amazon.co.uk/Growler-Stainless-Homebrew-Portable-Supplies/dp/B07MBG8S1R/ref=sr_1_4?keywords=mini-keg&qid=1568195489&s=gateway&sr=8-4 Why do you think that? Second-hand Cornies are getting thinner ...

Polypins are another option for some beer styles and the stuff brewed nearer Xmas.

Re: Tilt hydrometer review

I'm confused as to why you are seeing this again unless you have been really unlucky and for a second lemon. Do you have cooling cools in the fv or similar? Yes. Pumped from a bucket of cold water to start, then fed from a shelf cooler's python lines when Summer decided to hot up. I'm wondering if ...

Have you used them at all and if so how did you find them compared to "real" fruit?
