All cleaned and santised, will look to add it to the corny this evening and see if i have any success. Otherwise, looks like it coul...

Re: Help me understand this recipe

Where did you get the 16.5L and 1.060 from, I might be being blind but do not see it on the link you posted? Is it from your software that you United the recipe in?
The starting figures look right or very close to the book.

Re: Please Help - New Corny Set-up

You can get 2kg bottles of gas but the 6kg ones last much longer and probably make no real difference to storage size required but they last a fair bit longer.

Re: Corny and co2 in fridge?

Just be aware that corny kegs (unless you ask David Heath [emoji6]) come in two different widths, it usually makes a big difference to the number of them that you can fit in the fridge.

Re: Please Help - New Corny Set-up

I am liking the thought of basing this on a sodastream bottle, just for ease of exchange etc. how long will 60l last? Not long at all, especially as you will be making a drink that requires high carbonation levels. I am sure someone will be along soon with regards to the kegerator, although a lot o...

Using Elderflower

Apologies for the late reply on this one but it is still probably worth adding the info I promised before. James Morton has a elderflower pale ale (5.8-6% ABV) recipe and suggests: “If you want an ‘in your face’ elderflower flavour, wait until after your primary fermentation and add an elderflower ‘...

Re: Using Elderflower

James Morton’s “Brew” book has an elderflower pale in it and makes a few suggestions around how to add it (steep, hop tea or dry hop), I will dig out the details later.

Newcomers to the site but not to brewing

Welcome. I think your will find temperature control will make a marked improvement on your beers and allow you to brew a wider range. [emoji846] Edit: Oh and having a partner involved in it too is great, I think most on here are more used to eyes glazing over from their other half when discussing br...

Re: Water treatment at it simplest

I'm in a very hard water area. I have a £35 reverse osmosis filter and prep RO water the day before. Typically I'll mix 10% tap 90% RO, no other additions apart from gypsum of calcium chloride in the mash. Works well for the paler beers I tend to brew. My water supply doesn't vary much and dilution...

Re: Crushing malt without a mill

You need a mill really. What town do you live in/near, a local brewer may be able to help out when restrictions ease?
