Re: Total Failure!!! Where did I go wrong?........

WA - 3 years ago - bloody hell. I do remember now and also now remember (embarrassingly) I never returned the favour and sent you something of mine in return! Next up is an attempt at a Baby Faced Assassin so I will send you one for comment. Not due to brew until a week on Saturday so won't be with ...

Re: Total Failure!!! Where did I go wrong?........

Bummer! As the others have said, sorry to hear you've had to bin it - 51st all-grain/BIAB into the fermenter yesterday having lost one in similar fashion to yours and another that I hoped would improve over time but hasn't. Still hurts!!! Interesting that my 1st failure was the one and only time I u...

Re: 'Driving off' hop oils

Thanks again Rob. I think I'll concentrate on dry hopping as you suggest although, if you read my 'A bit of a milestone' post in the Grain Brewing section, maybe there's another way to get to where I want to be :wink:

Re: Bit of a milestone

Ha! Knew you`d say it! =D> WA Keep up the good work. A pic of your `Debris infused Pint` would probably be worth a look too! And I knew you'd get me in the end! Never thought to take a piccie but this has got me wondering whether a quick fix for (dissapointing) beers already in stock might be to cr...

Re: Barm vs Krausen

Interesting. Wonder if that has anything to do with the expression barmpot up here in the North? A barmpot being an idiot or nutcase?

Makes some sort of sense if said nutter has had his head in the fermenter :wink:

Re: Bit of a milestone

Well bugger me, I had a near perfect homebrew pint last night - a 5.5% Cascade IPA with a bit of a difference................ Received my order of Citra T90 hops from Rich (on here) yesterday - 500g. Decided to split it down into bags of 100g using a plastic pint 'glass' (from the rugby at Twickenha...

Re: 'Driving off' hop oils

I've been doing a bit more reseach on this and although I couldn't find any experimental evidence involving no-chill there's plenty out there comparing late hopping to hop stands (which is probably as close to my no-chill query as I'll get) to dry hopping. There's the usual wide variance of opinion ...

Hi Rich

Just to say the order arrived safely today as promised thanks. Just split and repackaged and the aroma is stunning. Looking forward to getting these into an attempted Baby Faced Assassin clone.

Re: 'Driving off' hop oils

They break down into other substances and the mechanical action of boiling will drive off aromas. Sealing doesn’t work, myrcene has a low flash point. Just dry hop, it’s easier and makes the most of aroma compounds! Cheers Rob Does that apply if added only in the last 15 minutes of the boil? And wh...

'Driving off' hop oils

Can anyone tell me whether hop oils effectively evaporate in the boil or morph into a totally different 'compound'? I'm looking at trying out late hoping for more punch but due to equipment and location restrictions have to use the no-chill method (I'm also a BIABer but can't see that makes any diff...

Re: Recipe adjustments

None to the recipe itself. Process is possibly different depending on your 'previous' routine.

Re: Bit of a milestone

C`mon, Meaty, you must have said `Oooooh! That is BLM!` a couple of times. :D :D WA Well to be honest, towards the end of last Summer I thought I'd nearly cracked it (IPA recipes) but then ran-out of my home grown hops - which are of course of unknown aa%. Bought some in and the resulting brews wer...

Re: I’m back again.

Similar to cobnut in that I'm a BIABer (but gas ring/bottle heating in the garage) with the same issue in controlling mash temp and trying to minimise the trub into the fermenter. I no-chill though as haven't as yet set up a satisfactory water recirculating system to avoid wastage - we're on a meter...

Roosters Baby Faced Assassin

Has anyone come up with a clone of what I think is a superb beer? When it was first brewed by Tom Fozzard as a homebrew I believe he put a mammoth 450g of Citra in a 5 gallon brew but when he and his brother Ol bought the Rooster brewery they had to tone this hop bill back - understandably, to make ...
