Re: former dabbler in brewing returns to hobby

Welcome back! :)

5g isn't a lot, but mosaic has quite a strong flavour so I probably wouldn't add any more than the recipe suggests.

It can't be the same as cooking otherwise I would have had my wife sparging my wort for the last 40 years! She can knock out a great corned beef pie but hasn't a clue on dry hopping.
Mmmm - corned beef pie. :=P

Re: Newbie after all the help in the world :)

Welcome to JBK Hudson1984. :)

There's nothing wrong with making a good lager - there're plenty of brewers on here doing it. Re how to get started, maybe look at one pot brewing systems - see the JBK subforum here - viewforum.php?f=45

Re: Water treatment at it simplest

Generally speaking untreated hard water isn't necessarily good for any type of beer - it depends on what's in it. Alkalinity is a better guide.

I'll point you to a link that might be helpful, but also: welcome to the forum!

Re: Fermenting bins, how long do they last and cleaning?

I used my old 70s brew bins from Boots until relatively recently, so they can last a long time.

Probably not a great idea though, as they get a lot of scratches in them from cleaning, so I wouldn't recommend it; especially as new ones are quite cheap.
