Re: Beer engine vs Valterra RP800 Chrome Rocket Hand Pump

Pretty sure this is what a bunch of Aussies have used to make their own beer engines adding a silicon tube for a "spout" and various things to emulate a sparkler too.

Re: Grade A corni kegs, 45 each.

There was a discussion on a NE Facebook group about the Homebrew Company kegs, the refurbished ones are the stumpy ones but the non-refurbished are the taller and thinner type, it can make a lot of difference to how many kegs a fridge will fit without hacking away the insides but you are probably lo...

Re: Any good low ABV recipes out there?

Hi Kingfisher/Dave There's a bunch of low-er ABV recipes available there (link) ... only a couple are down around the 3-ish% ABV, but there are some ideas you can work with there ... and I have brewed the Rye Wit one from there and would recommend it :wink: Cheers, PhilB Thanks Phil :) The rye whea...

Re: Beer engines; keeping it fresh

Short lines and leaving the pump in the fully pulled position after dispensing is the least faff and saves the most beer. I always pull through a little next time so am usually drinking beer only from the cask. I thought there was always beer in the cylinder of an Angram, no matter where the handle...

Re: Beer engines; keeping it fresh

I have a half pint angram and I've been playing with this and have found that on my pump I can disconnect from the corny take the disconnect off and the hand pump will actually get almost all the beer out the engine, I then put it in starsan and run through until clear. Or just use a carbonation ca...

Re: Big keg little keg.

They come in 11L versions too, although they seem to be a pain to get in the UK.

BIAB uk spredsheet

https://brewfather.app is really good too, it isn't BIAB specific but can be used for it. It's the new kid on the block but is very slick and being developed really fast. No association with it but i have subscribed to the premium version in preference to Beersmith 3. Edit: previously used Biabbrewe...

Re: serving bright beer from a cornie

Are the kegs "untouched" once put in the kegerator? The design of cornies with the concave bit at the bottom (although I have seen some Chinese ones with much more sensible convex bits) makes it very easy to disturb the sediment if they get knocked e.g. putting another keg in.

Re: Brewfather brewing app

Cheers for the heads up. How does this differ from the grainfather recipe builder and connect app? It's not related at all to them. It's basically the equivalent of Beersmith or similar software and can be used on any brew setup (it has a bunch of profiles already, including the Grainfather and Bra...

Re: Brewfather brewing app

I've been playing around with this for the last week or so and will be brewing with it on Monday, so far i've been really impressed and the pace of development and responsiveness of the developer is really high. I am 99% sure that I will be buying the subscription to it, I just want to see it used o...

Re: 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 The Malt Miller will crush specifically for a BM if you add a note on your orde...

Re: Co2 Leak

thanks for the replies - as co2 is difficult to get hold of (even more so at the moment) I hate to see any wasted :) Will be shopping for a new regulator. Hoping a gas board crops up on articles for sale on this forum I know you missed out on mine but it is probably worth putting up a wanted thread...

Re: The ‘Tilt’ thread.

It is really nice to see how things progress and a good way to learn how good your fermentation are going.
