Re: Red x lager?

I have read it can be very malty. I was thinking about adding some flaked rice to it to maybe thin it a little. You are on the right lines. Keep reducing the taste until it's like most commercial lagers then highly carbonate it and chill it until it tastes like fizzy water =D> =D> Nonsense, lots of...

Hi have just got one of hobbyweld 35pound but had to pay 65 pound rental on the bottle but it was delivered to my door
Same as me, expensive but it is delivered and I can source it easy enough.

Re: kviek # 41 lager style

Yeah agree, seems a hell of a lot of sugar. It will likely be thin and possibly have that twang which makes it more cider like? Good luck tho :)

Re: Just ordered from MM--stressful!

I think they are (rightly) being pragmatic about it and making the best they can out of the current circumstances. Rob posted a video on their FB last night again explaining why they have to limit the malt orders to what they can realistically fill each day so that things dont get out of hand with a...

Re: Shortage of malt?

I put in an order last week with the Malt Miller and got 30KG (25kg MO and 5kg Vienna), lots of hops and some bits and bobs no problem. I tend to buy in these days to save going back and forward incurring courier costs every few weeks. I see the MM is out of some varieties but still some sacks of ba...

Re: Red x smash

I have made a few 100% brews with this, it is very malty so if you want that character go for it. I used 200g+ hops on a normal 21L batch which worked well but did have some malt character. What OG are you aiming for? They recommend using Pilsner malt in higher gravity brews. If you are aiming for 1...

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.
