Re: Beersmith3 Set Up

Thanks, I’ll take a look at Brewfather too, yet to commit to anything to replace my sprawling set of spreadsheets,

Re: Beersmith3 Set Up

At the bottom of the "Tools" menu is "Options" click in there and the second option is then "Units" - so you can have metric or even some weird mix!

I'm 14 days into my trial, it does look quite good although I'm not sure I'd use all the features.

Re: Starsan Discontinued ?

Paperwork rather than ingredients . Good job, as I still have a large bottle to get through (it doesn’t go out of date does It?)

Panic - Star San withdrawn!

Oh but there’s a replacement, Chemsan, same instructions and seems the same ingredients. (Amazingly made in the UK)

Panic over, as you were!

Re: Wheeler's Beer Engine

3. In defaults editor there is no provision for wort losses. 3) Yeah the program is still work-in-progress and I can implement it, I just don't use it personally so never thought about it - I am not sure how to implement it at this point in time, anybody got any ideas/formulas? Thanks Jim, it does ...

Re: Hop plants. Heads up.

Any tips on hop growing welcome. Will two plants be enough? I planted a couple of hop plants a few years ago and they're romping away. So give them plenty of space and somewhere they can climb (one of mine covers the trellis it is on and is in the process of taking over an ornamental cherry!). They...

Re: Hop and Grain supplies

Yeah that's fair. I could call them. I'm down in Cornwall. Closest to me is Tuckers in Newton Abbott. About 1.5hrs drive. I was tempted to drive up if it was worth it but they do 25kg for about £25. Same price as HBS I agree it isn't a great price, but on the other hand it is floor malted and if y...

Something Fruity - ideas please

Yes, from memory the apricot/peaches comment is from Randy Mosher's book Radical Brews.

Looking to do a fruity brew myself for a party, and does seem to need a large amount per gallon.

Re: Raspberry Beret (Fruit Beer)

I'll be interested in the results of this. I fear that you will not have enough fruit in it!. My efforts in the past have been poor. The one thing I learned was the need for masses of fruit. Ever wondered why these beers are so expensive.........Fruit!! Yes, I've already started worrying about that...

Re: Raspberry Beret (Fruit Beer)

Orlando, did you ever brew this and how did it work out?

I've been asked to do a fruit beer for later in the the year and am leaning towards raspberry rather than cherry.

Re: Beer Engine

I wouldn't invert a corny keg, you are just asking for all the beer to leak out all over the floor, especially at low pressure. Why not just leave the keg the correct way up and take the beer out of the OUT post, as they are designed to work. Nice looking beer engines by the way :) =D> Absolutely a...

Re: Where to buy electrical boxes

Last time I was looking for a box I ended up on fleaBay. Seemed one place you could find enclosures with a good depth. It was a different project (as a base for a webcam I'm trying to set up outside), it was one like this: http://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/PLASTIC-ENCLOSURE-TERMINAL-BOX-ADAPTABLE-GEWISS-GW4...

Re: insulating my boiler

I've just upgraded to a 70l boiler which will involve brewing outside on a propane burner. I've considered the heat losses and think that rather than insulating the boiler I'll go with making a stainless steel shroud to surround the burner and boiler - this will protect the burner from any breeze a...
