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...

Re: Floating dip tube for corny

Another advantage to cask widge is the fine mesh. I can add hop pellets to the corny with no problems.

Re: Initial Cleaning of Stainless Steel

So I'm happy with the "TSP" stuff, although it is hard to obtain in some countries because of its enviromental impact (encourages damaging algal blooms). There are phosphate free TSP substitutes that I occasionally use. However, the best cleaner I've ever used for stainless is PBW. As a substitute ...

Got a call from my wife's surgeon a couple of hours ago and he's very happy with her progress. I even got to say a few words to her. She sounded quite out of it, but I've never heard a better sound.
Good to hear she's doing well.
Good to hear.

Re: Yellow Submarine Pale Ale

The few reports I can see on those guardians seem to suggest problems after just a few uses... shame if so. They look great in theory, and hope yours lasts. Yes, I was hoping Malt Miller or someone will stock in the UK. Condom over a bung in the meantime, perhaps, if you'll forgive the odd suggesti...

Re: Yellow Submarine Pale Ale

I’ve never heard of the Cold Crash Guardian, and a quick Google search found that it’s from Brew Hardware, a very well stocked shop I’ve never heard of even though it’s only an hour north of me! In fact I have driven past the location once a few years ago, but the store must not have been there yet,...

Re: Xmas brew

Windsor is my new favorite dried yeast. I've never used it before - no idea why not. I just used it for two sub 3% beers so far and it has cleared quickly with those. I’d be interested to see a recipe if poss please as I’d like to make a beer like that and have some Windsor in the freezer (a yeast ...
