Re: Your favourite Graham Wheeler recipe...

I’ve been meaning to buy this for ages. Luckily I just picked up a 1990’s copy from a used bookseller for £3.99.

I’ve always said “why-east”. I don’t think it matters too much [emoji846]

Re: Weighing down a hop bag

We’ve got loads of stainless steel tea spoons so I chuck a handful of those in.

I put them in the hop bag and boil the bag and spoons for 10 or 15 minutes first to sterilise.

Re: What yeast for Old Peculier

The back treacle was not used for priming but added towards the end of the boil.

Re: What yeast for Old Peculier

I made this sometime ago and from what I remember it turned out well.

I used Wyeast 1968 ESB yeast and added 200g of black treacle.

Re: Low CO2 pressure on new cylinder

Don’t take too much notice of the right hand gauge. I’ve got the same model of regulator and my needle barely moves off the stop, even with a brand new cylinder.

Re: Kindest sterilisers on septic tank system

I understand a cesspit to be a large tank that simply gets filled and emptied. A septic tank is normally a 2 chamber tank, often made of brick and concrete, that uses bacterial digestion to break the waste down before outfalling to a soakaway. Septic tanks only need to be emptied when too many solid...

Re: Beer Fridge

If you're nervous about drilling holes try running the temp probe under the rubber door seal. Closing the door with the very thin lead trapped between the jamb and the seal leaves little, if any, "leak". Done this for years, not noticeable. Thanks, that is what I have done. The power cable for the ...

Re: Beer Fridge

Well in the end I took everything out to the fridge, and it still refused to get cold. The compressor was running so it was probably loss of coolant. Yesterday I picked up a new larder fridge and this time bought a larger one with much more room. All now installed and working fine so well happy [emo...

Re: " Ditch's Stout " Master Class .....

Since I bought my Braumeister and dived into AG I’ve never contemplated going back to kit brews but I’m really tempted to brew Ditch’s Stout.

Is it really that good?

Re: AG#31 - Honey Ale

I made a at batch of Barney’s Honey Mild once. Turned out very nice. 450g of honey was dissolved in a little boiling water and added on day 5 of fermentation. It wasn’t boiled or simmered or sterilised in any way and turned out fine.
