Re: Phenolic taste at the end of a keg.

Thanks guys for all your help. This is solved. I was wrongly reliant on StarSan... Do you you mean you were using it wrongly or wrong to use it at all? ... I was about to suggest actually considering a 'one off' sterilisation using thin bleach and plenty of rinsing to get rid of any infection. I us...

Re: Choosing hops

By the way mjr, as a fellow Yorkshireman (though perhaps not as muted!), BIABer and no chiller, one really useful tip I was given on here to retain hop flavour/aroma, was to no chill then re-boil a gallon of wort and add the late addition hops (that don't work as late additions with no chill) and b...

Re: Hothead yeast

I'll be brewing this weekend. After reading all the comments above I'm planning to ferment at around 29. I'm really looking forward to using this yeast. I'm also planning saving some slurry and making a no boil / raw brown ale the next brew. How did this turn out? Am thinking about using Kveik to g...

Re: Fullers London Pride AG clone

I have been trying to mail down a London Pride clone for a couple of years now and think I have finally nailed. Thanks for the update! Done this beer (well the GW recipe) a few times myself & find your yeast research is interesting. Personally, I would find making comparisons with the original quit...

Progress as promised (Calibration day at the Rat and Dolphin).

Following up from my introduction to the forum earlier this week - I eagerly bought the Grainfather and have just calibrated it (the volumes stencilled into it's side). While it is currently boiling away some water (after a clean) (to calculate boiling losses) I checked the counterflow for leaks, an...
