Re: Replacement tap for Eurocamping Burner

Just to close this off - seeing 420 people have read the post, ended up contacting the Italian manufacturers who gave me a contact in the UK. Suffice to say the UK company didn't bother replying to phone call or emails but who knows how they have been affected with lockdowns etc - hence not fair rub...

Re: What size fermentation bin?

I wouldn't rely on the manufacturers volume marks on a plastic fermenter - always found them to be way out. As already said, pour in 5 L and mark it off yourself.

Replacement tap for Eurocamping Burner

Spent many a cold hour rearranging the garage so the missus could get her (beloved) convertible mini out of the snow/frost. All went well until I tried to be too clever in showing what an easy fit it was and hit my burner snapping off the tap. Bad enough running short of stock due to Xmas but now ca...

Re: Suggestions for my 100th All-grain Brew

Hi, my 100th brew was this: Cheers Charlie I was actually in on this when trying to find something to use up last years crop of Cascade but think I didn't follow it through. I'm just fermenting out a simple bitter with Cascade just to get a feel for bittering levels so yours is defo back in the fra...

Re: Suggestions for my 100th All-grain Brew

Thanks for your input. I wasn't intending brewing over Xmas/New Year as we normally have a house full - not happening this year obviously! I've decided the best way to go about this is determine what my home grown hops can do on their own. Always use them for bittering but I dry hop quite heavily wh...

Re: Suggestions for my 100th All-grain Brew

As it happens I’m brewing a De Ranke XX Bitter clone this weekend which might be appropriate. Or if you want push the boat out, you could brew their XxX super charged version Thanks Pete - another beer I haven't heard of. Just been on their web site and like the comment about the XX Bitter - 'low i...

Re: Suggestions for my 100th All-grain Brew

I thought my go to ales would be something like a TT landlord and pedigree. Whilst drinkable, attempts haven’t been that close to the original. Back to your question, I would try Mad Boris Russian Imperial Stout, from James Morton’s book. Cheers KF. Brought up in a small village with two pubs - one...

Re: Suggestions for my 100th All-grain Brew

Meaty, Try to brew something drinkable! :D :D WA Always good to hear some genuine encouragement - you never fail WA (and I'd have been dissappointed if you hadn't at least commented!). Brew a `Gruit Ale`. That will test you! :D WA But that is an interesting thought though. There's no chance of the ...

Why don’t you make a beer recipe from 100+ years ago? Perhaps a crazy strong mild ale!
Cheers guys - both very interesting slants on things - maybe go all out with a combination of the two!!!!!!!

Suggestions for my 100th All-grain Brew

Pretty self descriptive really - I'm on brew 94 and looking for something a bit different (special) to my usual IPA/DIPA brews I'm now more than happy with. I'm also thinking something for Xmas 2021 I've taken a bit of a break over the last few weeks but usually brew every 3 weeks so in the normal p...

Re: Making a fermentation chamber/fridge

Really interested in this topic as temperature controlled fermentation sounds like a great way to go next on my journey. Hi Pigster See you're quickly getting into everything! You want to be able to control the fermentation temp so you're heating and cooling the same space - the fridge only. I have...
