Re: Another keezer build

Got the second layer of XPS fitted.

Used Gorilla glue, which is better for foam on foam. Next step is to cover this with uPVC, before refitting the lid.

Re: Braumeister new touch screen

Yes, it is an SS Brewtech whirlpool fitting. I started off fitting a Blichmann whirlpool fitting, which requires some modifying to sit outside the malt pipe, but the Brewtech fitting is simpler and just as effective. I'll post some pics later, showing how it's actually fitted, as it required a coupl...

Re: has the single pot killed the three pot systems

With all due respect, matey, we don’t actually ‘critique’ business models. A viable business model isn’t based on personal opinions or hope; it’s based on fundamental facts of business that are easily measurable against minimal expectations for success. Any genuine assessment is to ascertain whether...

Re: has the single pot killed the three pot systems

With all due respect, this sounds worse than I first imagined. Feel free to offer up details of your business model. There’s no charge. At your proposed scale it’s nothing more than a costly vanity project. It would make so much more sense, from a business point of view, to just buy 2 kegs of ready-...

Re: Another keezer build

Rebuilt the freezer lip using uPVC corner trim, a nice stable, flat surface for refitting the lid on. IMG_0248.JPG Used No Nails and a little Gorilla glue in the corners to fill any air pockets. Finished it off with some good quality white anti-mould silicone sealant. Next step is to add a second la...

I will try and keep this simple... A comprehensive guide for brewers- ISBN 978-0-937381-99-1. The best £14 you can spend on brewing. :lol: Obviously you actually typed that and stuck it in the wrong place, for some ‘reason’ best kept to yourself, not only hijacking an otherwise very useful thread. ...

Re: Bicarbonate HC03

You need a 'breakdown of the mechanisms'? You could just set up a mini mash in a saucepan then add chalk. Measure the pH before, during and after. Or you could just launch a rocket on a journey to the moon. Choices, choices!

Re: Reducing trub from brew monk into FV

There's a 'balance' in any system. As ever, there's not a 'one size fits all'. Thankfully, home brewing is more interesting than that. I use a BM and my set up and procedures get pretty 'bright' wort into my FVs. But at least a little break material is actually very beneficial, for the yeast therefo...

Re: has the single pot killed the three pot systems

I’ve recently purchased a Brewtools B40 as a “pilot” system for the small/micro/nano brewery I’m involved in setting up, which we’re using a B150 for. Let me get this straight. You have a single vessel system with ‘150L’ capacity as a ‘commercial’ set up? With business partners? Let’s ignore how a ...

Re: Porter with soapy off taste

Who's Palmer? Is he a member here on JBK? Got a link to his thread about soapy Porters? I must have missed that one. Sorry, John J Palmer's "How to Brew". I thought it was as ubiquitous as Wheelers BYOBRA. There is a partial on line version that I quoted from . I see I've been rumbled #-o Linoleic ...

Re: FG too low

I checked the yeast profile in Brewfather as well and it is set correctly, so it looks like it hasn't done a very good job of taking into account the fact that the yeast can go to 12% and it would use up some or all of that extra candi sugar. There is no correct setting to pre-input in any off-the-...
