Re: Seals for Swing Tops?

I bought these for a load of old Grolsch bottles with perished seals they are brilliant and made of silicone and far cheaper than anywhere else! Most of the ones I found in the UK in the UK are overpriced and made of rubber material that will perish again over time.I bought some from a UK supplier t...

Re: has the single pot killed the three pot systems

I think there are a lot of home brewers out there that still use the 3 vessel system setup, they are still very popular, and at the end of the day it is whatever you are happy with using :mrgreen:

Re: Recipes for Brewie

Looking at all the negative reviews from across the pond in the USA,the machine is a total disaster,grossly overpriced and also appears to be very unreliable.

Re: King keg pressure vavle

I would throw the valve away and fit an S30 type valve and use an S30 cylinder, the small C02 bulbs are awful things,i used to use them and wasted half the charge trying to carbonate my beer.Also check the main big seal on the screw on cap and use food grade lubricant such as McGlaughlin and not Vas...

Re: Grainfather - first impressions

"Seal on the bottom plate is terrible. An absolute nightmare to get in place". With mine I always found the seal would push off as you are putting the lower mesh plate /gasket in Solution- just rub some grain dust from your malt ingredients round the seal and put it in-it then goes in a treat! and d...

Re: BM20 Table/Stand Suggestions

I needed something substantial to take the weight/dimensions of my 50 Litre Braumeister
I bought one of these Youngman 600 step up platform Wickes £59.
Nice equal dimensions compared to the other smaller width ones.
Folds up + nice height and swl up to 150Kg takes my 50 Litre Braumeister ok

Re: Ordered a Grainfather!

A great purchase-I bought one when they first came out, 2015 I think-mine has been bullet proof -only had to change the filter (upgraded and FOC at the time as had problems with the original filter getting blocked) and mine was the old version with the old controller so also bought the Grainfather c...

Re: Grainfather counterflow cleaning

I pump PBW @55c through mine and and then rinse with clean water-sorry to say haven't been impressed with the Grainfather cleaner after using 2 x 500g tubs of it-I found it never cleaned the bottom of the Grainfather properly-thought I would try PBW and it came up like new so have never gone back to...

Re: Grainfather High Performance Cleaner

Not impressed with the Grainfather cleaner- i have used two tubs of it-i now use PBW all the time- the Grainfather cleaner never used to shift the build up of the crud on the base of my Grainfather. :oops:

Re: New Grainfather question

Sounds like a new model unit that has had an old controller fitted to it,mine is a first generation model with the dual switch on the base,i had to assemble mine completely from the box-maybe it was a new model one that was a display item that got scratched so they sold the new controller and fitted...

Grainfather conical fermenter

The new Grainfather conical fermenter (with optional glycol chiller) looks quite interesting-with the dual tap and temperature controller works out the same price as a 52 litre chronical SS Brewmaster edition,not sure about the build quality compared to the SS though-having said that i took delivery...
