Re: Good Bitter Recipe Wanted (c4.5%)

I used the Lallemand London ESB yeast when it 1st came out and thought it was real good used in a bitter, its not fullers but was very good. I have recently bought and plan to use another Lallemand yeast, this time a Premium series english ale yeast called London. Im hopeful it will leave a little s...

Re: Klarstein Maishfest question

Yeah I did think that it might have something to do with the fact that it has double walls.

Re: HELP---Wort daker than I thought

Assuming the white wheat was malted, with 2.5kg of that and 2.5kg of pale malt at 23L, The colour should be around 8 to 9 Ebc, which is pale. Sort of lager or pale ale colour. If its darker, maybe some of the wort got a bit burnt during the boil. If you had taken a hydrometer reading using a test ja...

Re: First brew (Courage Directors) and question

Just to add to the great advise above. Try to avoid getting any air into the beer when transferring to either a secondary or bottles, try not to splash or stir it too vigorously, you may oxygenate it. Its ok to thrash it at the very start of fermentation to give the yeast plenty of oxygen but not at...

No, I just went and watched it and thought it was a complete waste of time, So thought I would comment on it as requested by the OP.
I thought it might save others from wasting time on this useless video.

Re: If you could choose one hop to brew with Nelson Sauvin what would it be?

I have bittered with Challenger and late hopped with Nelson, a lovely brew. Sounds a great idea, would you mind sharing that recipe? Hi Kingfisher The recipe is nothing special. The method I use is to think of how I want the malt to be, and think of the hopping separately. So for something with hop...

Re: Oak aging?

I've been useing some Jack daniels oak chips for a few years that are sold for BBQ's. They are chipped jack daniels barrels 100% oak no aditives to assist burning. I use them to age rum and whisky, but have also used them with some of my beers. As they are very spirit soaked they are well sanitized....

Re: Sharing homebrew with other brewers in this community?

Just thought it would be a fun idea, I've seen other YouTube vloggers doing it and it's entertaining and informative from a brewer's perspective. I would be posting my beers out to other brewers too, not just me having all the fun! Oh well, that idea obviously went down like a lead balloon 🎈 😂 haha...
