Re: Pros and Cons?

I went from brew in a bag (home made boiler/mash tun) to three vessel (picnic cooler mash tun + buffalo boiler) to Braumeister and definitely wouldn’t go back. My only regret was not splashing out for the BM at the start as I lost a fair bit of money trading up each time. For some, building the brew...

Re: It's been a long time coming.......

Nothing wrong with clones. Making a clone is always a good starting point because you know the final result, even if it’s not exactly like the original, will be drinkable. After making a clone, and for future brews I will use the original recipe but tweak the bitterness or abv or substitute a little...

Re: Weatheroak Hill Brewery / Sunshine Marmalade 4.7%

I’m brewing this in the next few days too (as soon as I’ve bottled the ESB on the go now). Incidentally, Brewdog did a series of tests to determine the best temperature for dry hopping and the result was 14 degrees. I now do this with all my beers and it seems to work well. I still can’t decide whet...

Re: Weatheroak Hill Brewery / Sunshine Marmalade 4.7%

Thanks Rob, I normally just weigh leaf hops down in a hop bag but I’ve heard that if you wizz them up in a blender and toss them in loose they pack down into the trub when chilling prior to kegging.

I’ll give it a go [emoji482]

Re: Weatheroak Hill Brewery / Sunshine Marmalade 4.7%

Hi Rob,

Ordered the ingredients today to give this a bash but could only get leaf hops for the dry hop. Would you use the same amount or should I bung the. Whole 200 grams in?

Not sure how pellets compare to leaf when dry hopping.

Re: Weighing down a hop bag

I chuck in half a dozen stainless steel teaspoons. For some reason we’ve got loads of them. I boil them with the hop bags for 10 minutes to sterilise them.

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.

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.
