Re: hello

'Re social brewing I think is great but 30 is just too big, atm its just me and a mate and I bought all the equipment for beer and wine and he drinks it mostly its a system that works for us but somtimes I could just use another hand when bottling.

Re: Running a tap off a king keg

Did you ever get an answer from anywhere or have you at least tried it. As an experiment it would cut the cost of keg outlay.

Re: DIY inline refractometer

8Kusd vs £100+ not including your valuable time and skill what would a start up brewery be able to afford.
Oh and I looked through the code on git hub its so simple and python is not my best.

Re: DIY inline refractometer

It's a great idea I'm really impressed. I can see real world applications for commercial brewery as well for consistant brews.
Please keep me updated what equipment did you use.

Re: Choosing hops

I sterilize everything before use even hot side it maybe over kill but I don't want to do a brew day and for nothing.

Re: Choosing hops

We have a rescue greyhound who wants to eat my wife's rabbits and my only outlet for drainage while brewing would give the dog open access to the rabbit hutch the dog got out there last month for 20 secs and a show winner is no more.
