Re: Alright from Austin

I’ve ordered from https://www.kegconnection.com/ but I live in New Jersey. They just advertised a sale on their recipe kits https://www.kegconnection.com/true-to-style-recipes/ From what I’ve read, cooling your wort in the summer will be a problem because of ground water temperature so running an im...

Re: Looking for your Brown Ale recipe suggestions

I didn’t know Graham had a recipe and I’ve never used amber malt that I can remember. Crisp and Simpson’s have slightly different versions. It’s not even carried by MoreBeer.

Graham Wheeler Sam Smith’s Nut Brown in his Brew Classic European Beers at Home, which looks similar to the one Dave posted.

2 different recipes for Sam Smith’s Nutbrown but seem similar and call for crystal and chocolate http://austinhomebrew.com/assets/images/RCPPDF/04234.pdf http://www.britishbrewer.com/2010/04/recipe-samuel-smiths-nut-brown-ale/ I haven’t tried to make it and would wonder what yeast to use, and then h...

Re: Base grains

I just had a few beers at a brewery that grows and malts it’s own barley. My favorite was a SMASH that used locally grown cascade.

Re: Base grains

Wow that's expensive malt! By my calculations based on $0.76 to the pound (Google), that's over £100 for a sack of Deer Creek malt! Is that the cheapest malt you can get or is it unusually expensive? It is very expensive, even wholesale. A local brewery made a beer with it only once and basically l...

Re: Base grains

I really only use Maris Otter but I occasionally buy locally grown malt, last time I used pale from Niagara, New York https://nthomebrew.com/niagara-pale-ale-malt/ Next time I would like to try some grown and malted only about 45 minutes away from me from Pennsylvania https://deercreekmalt.com/ http...

Re: Hop pellets clogging

My problem is just the opposite. On the rare occasion I use whole hops, I need to bag them. Pellets have settled down with the cold break etc. 30 minutes after immersion chilling so I don’t use a filter.

Re: Brown ale

Not a recipe, but Sam Smith’s Nut Brown. Simple grain bill I’m sure, but it’s all about the yeast.

Re: Your favourite Graham Wheeler recipe...

So many to choose from but I had a beer made by another homebrewer recently from the European book. Nussdorf St Thomas, absolutely sublime beer. It was made by someone who is an excellent brewer anyway but it was so good! Is that a GW book? Yes it is, I wasn't aware of it till this post. You can pi...

Re: Angram CQ service

No, I think they want you to replace the cylinder plates. Worth a try though.
Paul Pendyke’s prices are crazy high for Angram in the US, but his site has very useful exploded diagrams

Re: Beer engine + polypins

… Very generous. Replacements go for about £60 here in the US. *!%*~! :shock: . Knowing how much a new one from Angram is, I wont be trying that in the UK. This guy is the only place to buy Angram in the US, the UK site will not accept orders or ship overseas. Fortunately I have friends in the UK w...

Re: Beer engine + polypins

Its chipped i think, hence the price. How much you looking for posted? Not looking for owt for the mount, it's a bit of unused, scrap wood to me. But I've got to find first (I do know it's still here somewhere, only switched it last year). The "posting" bit is the awkward bit. I'll dig about for it...
