Re: Lotus Hops

Ignore me (most everyone else does!) totally mis-read your post. Didn't have a beer yesterday so blaming that!

Couldn't get a UK page when I looked hence thought this was to the US again. Emailing now.

Lotus Hops

Spent a very enjoyable couple of hours in the Taproom at Roosters Brewery in Hornbeam (nr Harrogate) yesterday. Baby Faced Assassin has always been a favourite of mine but another brew - a NEIPA style called After The Horse Has Bolted, was absolutely excellent. Going to contact the guys at Rooster t...

Re: Size of hops on the bine

I’ve noticed that my goldings hops have a large variation in size. Any ideas why? Is it nutrition or environmental? There doesn’t seem ti be a pattern were on the bine the largest are. Cheers Wilf I'm currently harvetsing First Gold, Styrian Golding, Santiam, Fuggles and Northdown - all of which ha...

Re: Dairy Bleach

Not using it myself but a dairy farmer mate of mine used it regularly although it's some years ago now and he's no longer farming (nor is he answering his bloody phone!). He also regularly 'burned' himself using it!! I do recall it's very strong stuff and I think it contains caustic soda as a stabil...

Re: Hop Oils.

Trying 2ml of Nelson per 19L keg today in a generic APA. The aroma coming out is lovely. Anybody else use it? I've tried Citra and Cascade oils in the past but was totally underwhelmed - get a far better result dry hopping for 3 days at 8C. Having said that, it was a while ago and my brewing has im...

100L Stainless Steel Pan

Bought as part of a job lot but ahevn't found a use for it. Badly stained with limescale and as couldn't get any acetic acid resorted to vinegar - what a ball ache. All now clear but inside is not as shiny as new. For that reason - and to make sure anyone interested is happy with the purchase, it's ...

Re: Rapid Fermentation Problem

Transferring to secodary is surely to avoid large amounts of slurry? I tfr to secondary to dry hop with little sediment other than some hop fallout when transferring again to bottling bucket. If I want to capture yeast I use IPA's method - drawing off a PET bottles worth around day 3 of fermentation.

Re: Bottle brush that fits beer bottles

Make your own? Standard bottle brush plus bristles from a floor brush taped to the end using electricians tape - one of the wonders of the world!

Lasts around 200 bottles before you have to replace the bristles although I usually then replace the brush as well.

Re: Base Malt Exbeeriment by Norwich Amateur Brewers

I train them horizontally along a fence. Alternatively Prima Donna ( First Gold) is a hedgerow variety so not as tall. Thanks Keith may well give it a go next year. buddsy Buddsy You'll have no problems growing your own in Norfolk - I grow Cascade, First Gold (Prima Donna), Fuggles, Northdown, Sant...

Re: ABV Higher than expected, too much yeast?

Thanks, the beer is actually fabulous and tastes just how I wanted it to. I suppose being a new I am still trying to understand the reasons of it all. I've just done 4 back-to-back dry hopped IPA's with the only variable being the dry hop. Everything else exactly the same - process, timescale, grai...

@leedsbrew do you know which strain Crossmyloof use. I believe each Kveik strain has different flavour profiles.
Drop them a line (crossmyloof@brew-meister.com) - always found them very helpful. Stevens your man.

Yes I have used it several times , very clean and lets the malt and hops shine . I'm a big fan of all of the CML yeasts .
Likewise, thanks for the comment - will give this, and probably one of the others, a go and post in a month or so

Has anyone tried this Kiwi yeast from Crossmyloof? Looking to try something different in a heavy dry hop IPA.
