Re: Crossmyloof Brewery Dry Yeast

I've used their Høg Nørsk yeast in a smash and it ferments fast and clean. Really liked it and bought a few more packets for future brews. How long did it take to ferment out? Did you go for the top range of 27c? The whole reason I used it was because I had another brew on the go in my temp control...

Re: Crossmyloof Brewery Dry Yeast

Anybody tried their NEIPA yeast? What a great dejection if hops they have, plenty of 2019 crop too. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk Pro I have their 'Haze' yeast on a current kegged batch, not a full blown NEIPA but 300g of hops in there all the same. It has turned out very well. I used 'Pia' in...

Re: Pros and Cons?

I have a Braumeister 20 which I love. I had a short lived 3V system with a RIMS tube, PID, Blichmann Gas burner etc but luckily managed to sell most off with no great loss. For me the benefits are the time, ability to full volume mash overnight and much less cleaning. Like others have said, there ar...

Re: Help! So much sludge with pellet hops

I would move to a secondary at some point once fermentation has slowed down, not a practice that I usually follow but as you have more than just a bit of trub in there thats the approach I would take in this instance.

Re: wyeast 1187 ringwood

How old was it? The pack will claim 100bn cells but that is from day 1. How did you aerate? I follow the o2 process here I always use a starter with liquid yeast, an exception would maybe be with a very fresh Imperial Yeast pack if it is less than 2 weeks old and an Ale I am brewing but otherwise a ...

Re: Mini Keg using carbonated beer

Thanks for the tip!! These ones are Fynne Ales but will keep that in mind as my brother in law likes Ghost Ship in the mini keg so will be getting him that next time and request he keeps it for me when done.

Re: Mini Keg using carbonated beer

Thanks for the comments. What I think I may do is fill one for drinking the same day / weekend and see how I get on. I have a brew on keg I am a unsold on so may just experiment and fill one, leave it a couple of weeks then do a side by side to see if any visible signs of deterioration. In any case ...

Mini Keg using carbonated beer

I have some mini kegs from Christmas from some breweries which are ones which are intended for retail sale and single use, having a tap at the bottom. I have bought replacement bungs which are the same as the original where you release pressure when drawing from the tap. I have removed the bung from...

I full volume mash in my BM. I make my additions when mashing in. Interested also to hear others views on this.

Re: Hambledon Bard refill S30 discontinued

Malt Miller stocks 2 types of in post, but there are various size threads on cornie type keg posts. Whilst not the main issue I have had it was one of the drivers which has led to me phasing out the used kegs I initially started out with to the new AEB kegs. I bought some of the 'older' type posts ...

Re: Floating dip tube for corny

Nice idea but I find these sorts of things cuddly, and probably a waste of money when you can just cut your dip tube a half inch. This method takes it from the top and not near the bottom so is a bit different, whether that improves it significantly is down to opinion. I have been satisfied with re...

Re: Floating dip tube for corny

Nice one. Did you have to do much to fit the cask widget - for example, was the length of tubing ok? And did you have any problem with the tube kinking or frothing? I'd imagine you'd either cut the beer diptube short and connect the tubing, or swap the dip tube for a gas post and connect it to that...

Re: Floating dip tube for corny

As recommended on here a while back I use a Cask Widge float on a couple of my kegs. This leaves approximately 700ml behind in the Keg once it kicks, an advantage of this is for those who like to dry hop in the keg where you ensure that nothing clogs it up. The mesh on the pickup float also helps ad...
