Once again, try one of these.

A major part of my lifelong collection of about 6,000 vinyl albums is in my brewery/garage. No way would I risk condensation getting to any of them.

That looks amazing - but no way I could hide a hole in the garage that size from the Mrs!

Re: Brewhouse/Shed Wishlist

Some form of drainage (ideally a screed floor with multiple floor drains) would be my first choice for something that's hard to do later. On the subject of steam - extractor fans aren't very effective unless you cover the kettle and have a duct going outside. Or I would consider the idea of a steam...

Re: Upgrade questions- herms and panel builds

Hiya thanks... Was aware of the need for pid's, that was main reason for planning on trying to do panel at the time. Hadnt heard/thought of having a seperate smaller pot for the herms coil, only ever heard of it being in the hlt. Think for money/space side of things I would probably still want the h...

Upgrade questions- herms and panel builds

Hi all. Over the next few months I'm hoping to make my next round of upgrades. I'm currently running a cheap platsic 25l htl that gravity feeds to 50l thermo mash, then pump to 70l boiler. I'm looking at ditching the current htl and upgrading to a shiny 70l herms set up (and adding 2nd pump). The ma...

Re: ANGELHOMEBREW-FermZilla 27L Starter Kit PREORDER

Cant wait to get my hands on mine!

Just wondered, when the 55l comes out, will there be an option to just purchase the body?
Therefore saving on not paying a second butterfly valve etc...

Re: Secondary CO2 Regulators

None for sale, but hope it helps...After my cheap dual primary broke, following some useful advice on here. I got myself a ODL primary and 4 IMI secondaries. The secondaries I got were reconditioned and about £18 each. Seem really good so far... https://www.ewlonline.co.uk/imi-ps114-regulator-recon-...

Re: Advice on regulator issues.

No idea on brand, but it was pretty dirt cheap. It's the one angel homebrew sell (not knocking them, usually stuffs really good). But as you say, get what you pay for. In case no one can recommend how to take it apart, do you know what brands to actually look out for. My main thought was replacing w...

Advice on regulator issues.

I made the swap over to cornies about a year ago, and got myself a double reg. I use one to carbonate my fermentasaurus, then the other into my keezer and split to the 3 kegs. I lost the last 6kg co2 tank in a month and thought I just hadnt done up the connection. But tested for leaks, and seem to h...

New fermentasaurus!

Anyone else been waiting for the new gen of the fermentasaurus, with all the promised tweaks?! Noticed last week Angelbrew are now listing it on their site as coming soon. Annoyingly on the 27l, hopefully the double batch will be along soon enough! Anyone heard when both may actually be shipping? (E...

Re: Grain storage suggestions

Ive been keeping my grain in a food grade plasyic barrell. Found the 60l version fits 25kg sack perfectly. Dump the bag in, cut the top open and dont have to keep taling it in or out. Think this is the one i use.... https://www.amazon.co.uk/60-Litre-airtight-storage-container/dp/B00AF5GVHQ Brew usin...

Sparkling/carbonated water

I've played around a little bit with testing to see if using a carbonation cap, if i could refill 2l sparkling water bottles, and well, re-sparkle them. At the minute had very limited success, but slightly cautious of turning up the pressure to high (no idea how much those cheap throw away bottles c...

Re: KEG KINGDOM

Ive used keg kingdom a few times for kegs, taps and fittings. But havent ordered any electrical stuff. Never had to contact their customer services, but know the delivery is really really slow. But they are cheap. Oh and if anyone does use them... discount code JBK still gives an additional 5% (used...

Re: What are your thoughts on this? Ok?

Was it an AG batch or had you added DME? I had it before where i added some DME to bump up abv but for some reason it didnt fully disolve, presumably meaning the yeast couldnt get to all the sugar as it was sitting as a lump. If that happened, the transferring to secondary would kick start any resid...
