Re: Shorter, cooler dry hopping times

An interesting post Scott Janish on why dry hopping cooler and with shorter contact times may be beneficial in a few ways. Yes, thanks f00b4r - really interesting read. Put's some more detailed science behind the shorter exposure argument and happy to see my usual 3 days is not overly long. What it...

Re: Cheap (is possible) Pump

Cheers PhilB To be honest, it's not my go-to style but as SWMBO puts up with me banging my brewing costs through the joint account I think it's only fair to give something she likes a go - only every now and again obviously. Had a look at the link (thanks) plus I'm sure I've seen others in a similar...

FWIW, I ground mine, steep them in vodka for 24 hrs to steralise then add to secondary. I get a super chocolate hit. I usually add 100g to 19L.
We live and learn - hopefully

Citra Hops

If anyone is thinking of off-loading any vacuum stored 2018 Citra Hops - maybe from a bulk order, I'd be very interested.

Re: Cheap (is possible) Pump

Hi Phil Hi Meaty As I no chill I can't produce decent lagers/pilsners etc ... what makes you think that? Previous posts and resulting advice that being unable to rapid chill is the likely root cause of being unable to produce a satisfactory lager/pilsner ... but if what you're REALLY wanting to do i...

Meaty, Don`t you dare `lose the faith`! [-X [-X WA I know - got to keep with it just frustrating when you think you've finally nailed something only to find you've done anything but and can'#t actually find the reason why. Have 1 final pre-jollies brew to bottle and then handing my brew fridge over...

Re: Cheap (is possible) Pump

Cheers guys The head isn't 2.2m unless you're getting the last dregs out - I wouldn't pipe the warmed water back into the same butt as it won't do much cooling. Is that your plan? Having made me think about this, I should be linking 2 butts together near the base. The inlet will be drawn from the to...

Re: Gardena Garden Hose - disaster or a subtle new dimension?

The hose will be plasticised PVC and the plasticiser will most likely be either DOP or DiNP, WOW - is there anything we can't tackle on this site! As regards reduced sperm production. I think I can live with that. I'll alert the wife but given any sperm in this house has to negotiate a 10 foot trek...

Re: Adding cocoa nibs

Read the perceived wisdom was to lightly roast the nibs before adding to the secondary - DON'T! I read to roast at 175C for 20 minutes - that sounded over the top so did 10 minutes at 140C. From awesome (raw) to aroma-less - never again. I get there might be a potential for infection used 'out of th...

Cheap (is possible) Pump

If you trawl the entire forum - as I do, you may have seen mention of my set-up and desire to improve. Very quickly, I have power and gas bottle, single 30l pan, dunk sparge and no chill. As I no chill I can't produce decent lagers/pilsners etc so want to tackle that but also to make it part of my g...

Re: Gardena Garden Hose - disaster or a subtle new dimension?

It just struck me that the world would be a better place with more interaction like the thread above. Knowledgeable, considerate people, helping others out for no personal gain! It feels a privilege to be part of this community. :) I'll second that! Just posting in Equipment re' pumps mentioned above

Re: Saltaire South Island

Why not just ping them an email and ask? Most breweries are usually happy to help as long as you're not asking for trade secrets
