Re: Water giving unpleasant earthy taste?

Try bottled water. If the taste improves, you know waht to investigate further.

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...

Another one dented. They are going to have to sort there packing out, to protect them from the courier chucking them about.

Re: Cheap One Pot Klarstein

Just an update on the Klarstein. I have just done my second brew on it, and again I say its fine. I did a 17L brew 1049. I used a hop spider and pellets. I did the boil outside. Although its probably able to brew up to about 24L, I got this to brew smaller batches around 15-17L, With around 18L in i...

Re: Guinness clone. ?

Hi Alfie Welcome back. The GW recipe is a fine recipe. I too have been using it for years, I've tried lots of others but always come back to the 70/20/10 grain bill. I sometimes have used other hops, and a few different yeasts. Maybe you could try some WLP 004 yeast which is supposed to be from Guin...

Re: Cheap One Pot Klarstein

Yes the barb is removable.
There is a tread, I cant say if any of thoses ebay camlocks would fit or not.
But I suspect they would.

Re: potato wine

The effort you are going to have to go to, to get a small amount of nasty tasting wine.
Why not try it 1st with sugar, it'll taste better than potato, but still taste nasty.
Unless you are then going to distill it, I wouldn’t bother.

If you register on the site and let them add you to there email list. You get £10 off your 1st purchase.

Another 15% off - code is - hellospring
I think that should work out as around £185 delivered.

Re: Cheap One Pot Klarstein

Hi Dave I've just measured the capacity. 26L from empty to the max marking, Then another 5 and a half liters to the brim. 23L should be fine. If the mash temp drops the element is switched back on until it reaches the mash temp again. You should recirculate a few jugs and stir. Yes it does have litt...

Re: Cheap One Pot Klarstein

Thanks posting about this Norm. It’s seriously tempting. If only it were slightly bigger to enable it to boil down to 23 litres for a king keg! Just a quick question, as I could make slightly smaller batches - do you think it would be possible/advisable to boil the wort using the grain pipe in it a...

Re: Cheap One Pot Klarstein

I did a small brew with the Klarstein, It’s not as good as a BM, But its pretty good, I think I will be using it for all of my small batches. Its very quick and easy to use and clean up. The element is switch able between 1500w and 3000w, and so will heat up really quickly. The element is below the ...

Re: Cheap One Pot Klarstein

Hi Phil Yeah point taken, And it’s the same for any system, to be sure of the actual temperature recirculate, or give it a stir. Im always careful with new kit to measure temperature and stir the mash, Until im sure how kit works during a few brew days. It does have a malt tube. I didnt want a one w...

Re: Cheap One Pot Klarstein

Not shiny enough. I wraped my BM with a camping mat, The beer was shiny enough for me.


The Klarsein arrived just now, And I have to say,
The build quality is really good. The stainless steel is very nice and the boiler has a double wall.
I'll do a brew after the weekend and update this post.
