Fruit wines

I have lots of blackcurrants, gooseberries and wild plums( similar to damsons) in the freezer and wondered if anyone could advise how to go about putting a recipe together for individual fruit wines! I did use some of the fruits along with blackberries and elderberries last year but the wines turned...

Re: Culturing yeast

Ive tried twice now and despite using three bottles with a good bottom covering of yeast I've had no success! I presume the bottles must be pasteurised after conditioning, it's getting harder to get a good, healthy bottle conditioned beer with a useable commercial yeast I think, certainly here in Ir...

Culturing yeast

Has anyone had any success propagating moorlands hens tooth yeast? If so what traits does the yeast carry through to your ales? I'm looking to brew a bodies clone but I really don't think the malt and hops alone are going to give me what I'm looking for and the last wheats vial I used ,although very...

Re: KRONENBOURG

Apparently it's a well made beer up until it leaves the conditioning vessels where all sorts of adulterations are then visited upon it! If it's brewed as we would do it at home you'll end up with a very good ale! I do like the strisslespalt hops and I do recall having a few grand cru that was extrem...

Re: KRONENBOURG

Pale malt
Slight crystal
Hersbrucker hallertau
Near end of boil
Strisselspalt at end
Fermented for minimum 7 days @ 12oc
Top pressure at 0.15 bar which is nothing!
Protein stand at 52 oc for 30 mins then mash for 1 hour
Munich yeast would probably be best

Re: KRONENBOURG

It definately uses strisslespalt!
I can probably get the recipe if it's still needed!

Re: American hop rhizomes

I'm based in Northern Ireland but a couple of years ago I have a rhizome to my uncle in Manchester, last year he's cascade hops were like small bananas and so plentiful that when I visited in November he'd left half the harvest on the bines!
He must have picked the perfect spot for them to grow!?
