Re: Planning - Spiced Cyser

Long time flow up... I opened this tonight, almost two years old spiced cyser. Lovely still sweet cider. Smooth, but with a bit of a burn in your throat as you swallow - the same heat sensation as when swallowing white wine, but sweet. Delicious!! https://uploads.tapatalk-cdn.com/20200418/9313af9a48...

Re: Apple IPA

I bottled this stuff today! Primed the 7.6 litres with 130g of Golden Syrup. Wanted it to be fizzier than last time. Fingers crossed they don’t all explode! Ended up spilling a load of it through my poor syphoning technique, so I got 13x 500ml bottles. FG 1.002. 6.3% ABV. Sent from my iPhone using T...

Re: Starsan Discontinued ?

What about this ‘Saniclean’?

Re: Apple IPA

With pellets [emoji106] I done the dry hop this morning, soo I’ll leave it for another week or so then cold crash in the fridge. It smells amazing. Hoping it’ll be another tasty batch!

Re: Asda Smart Price Thin Bleach dilution help

I got the instructions from this link... http://howtobrew.com/book/section-1/brewing-preperations/sanitation/sanitizing-your-equipment Where is says “The cheapest and most readily available sanitizing solution is made by adding 1 tablespoon of bleach to 1 gallon of water (4 ml per liter).

Re: Apple IPA

Really ‘creamy’ looking krausen on this beer now, after 2 days. Not sure I’ve ever seen one as creamy. https://uploads.tapatalk-cdn.com/20190926/c65feaf84966b4977c76a86ad12b34ce.jpg https://uploads.tapatalk-cdn.com/20190926/83368876e78506e5aa2ab41eecfbbed3.jpg Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk

Re: Asda Smart Price Thin Bleach dilution help

I use bleach and vinegar too. 3.8 litres water 1 level tablespoon vinegar 1 level tablespoon bleach Mixing raw bleach and vinegar creates chlorine so add them into the water, rather than measuring them out and then adding the water into them [emoji106] easy peasy and super cheap.

Re: Ideas please

Jocky, I kegged one of the Demi’s on Thursday and drank the whole keg on Saturday. Really delicious tasty beer. Bottled the 2nd Demi into 10x330ml. I forgot to write down the FG but I’d worked it out to be 5.7% abv, so I suppose it must’ve been around 1.004 or thereabouts. Thanks for the recipe. I’d...

Re: Options for conditioning/serving bigger than a bottle, but smaller than keg?

Just a wee update for anyone - I left the beer in the keg till Saturday afternoon, had probably been in there around 36 hours. The first glass I poured came out pretty flat, but I mucked about playing with the ‘flow control’ and I ended up pouring a couple of decent pints out it! Was quite chuffed w...

Re: Options for conditioning/serving bigger than a bottle, but smaller than keg?

I suppose to ‘burp’ the keg, seeing as I don’t have a pressure release valve, I would just need to put in some co2 then unscrew the lid a bit hoping that the co2 has settled on top of the beer and will push the oxygen out...?

Re: Options for conditioning/serving bigger than a bottle, but smaller than keg?

Okedoke, thanks. I checked this morning, pressure had dropped to around 12. I turned it back on and it quickly went back up to 15 so I turned it back towards off. It seems to either be completely on, quickly increasing pressure, or being completely off. Maybe just take a bit of getting used to getti...

Re: Options for conditioning/serving bigger than a bottle, but smaller than keg?

I found a carbonation chart, so think I am aiming for 2.5 volumes and my fridge is 7*C, which works out to be just below 15 psi. I filled the keg tonight and turned the co2 thing till the dial went up to 15, then I turned the co2 thing back to the off position before it went up any further. Am I mea...

Re: Options for conditioning/serving bigger than a bottle, but smaller than keg?

So, if setting the pressure at 12-15 psi for 48 hours to carb, I take it just pulling a pint will reduce the pressure a bit, as I’ve read that pressure should be around 5-8 psi for pouring?

Re: Options for conditioning/serving bigger than a bottle, but smaller than keg?

I’ve been watching and reading up on force carbing in the keg and this Co2 release valve seems to be pretty necessary, to obviously alleviate any excess pressure and also to purge any oxygen in the keg. It seems to be the failsafe part of the entire keg of beer not failing [emoji848] can anyone offe...
