Re: Hello from Portsmouth

I love my Braumeister but they do come in significantly cheaper alternatives as well, you can find something to suit most budgets and at the end of the day they only really make wort, not beer.

Re: PicoBrew Model S

That’s good info Tony. Have you tried contacting the seller about it, he seems pretty responsive.

Re: Liquid yeast viability.

If the yeast is very low viability it might throw some off flavours but maybe not too noticeable. For the effort put in and the price of a dry pack you might as well try the dry yeast, the major issue is more likely the fact that any bacteria present will have had time to start multiplying. Check th...

Welcome to the forum. You will find a wealth of information here but don’t be afraid to ask any questions either.

Re: Beer Life Expectancy in a Cornie

A) It depends on the beer, e.g. a really hoppy beer will deteriorate relatively quickly just as it would in bottles, although with kegs it is much easier to reduce oxygen on the cold side so it should fare better than in bottles. For less sensitive beers you are likely to get just as long in the keg...

Welcome back. There are lots of new shiny new toys but it sounds like you have a pretty good setup already.

Re: Grain Crush for All-in-One

It may be that you have the same mash efficiency as but now have to account for dead space in your new system, without measurements it’s very hard to tell what is happening.

They are EU voltage machines that everyone has been picking up so far NOT 110v, just in case anyone gets confused by Lee’s post and thinks a transformer is needed.

Re: Homebrew Distillers licence-Has anyone successfully applied?

Hello! "There are also advantages to it, it means that you can have homebrew events where you can sell the beer to the public and get them engaged or raise money without having to worry about treading some grey legal line or outright breaking the law." That sounds really good! How long do you live ...

Re: Floating dip tube for corny

This year they have changed the silicone hose that was being supplied with the Fermentasaurus floating dip tube to something a little thicker, athough I am not sure if the inside diameter has changed too. This tubing does work better and is much easier to put on than the originally supplied one. Keg...

Re: Homebrew Distillers licence-Has anyone successfully appl

Actually we are fairly lucky regarding home alcohol production in the U.K.- I think you have to get a licence, or register, to make more than about 200 litres of beer per annum in Germany of all places! Why, in the name of (choose your deity) would you be arsed to homebrew in Germany? My lads were ...
