I know what the term "party gyle"means but I don't understand "main party gyle"
Their core beers are patri-gyled, i.e. all their main beers, Pride, ESB etc... 🤷‍♂️

"main party gyle" ????

This hop is all ‘pungent with green onion, chive-like, and dank aroma and flavor characteristics’. Jeez, dry hopped one corny with NS.
I've never got that from NS, Mosaic on the other hand... 🤢

Re: Invert Sugar

Which still leaves me unclear as to whether inverted cane sugar is any better than non-inverted cane sugar. Why do I get the feeling I'm somehow completely missing the point here?! I thought that the main reason that you used it, was to avoid the yeast throwing that classic green apple tang. The fa...

Re: Invert Sugar

From Ron Pattinson's blog - https://barclayperkins.blogspot.com/2009/06/refined-sugar-vs-invert-sugar.html Which entertainingly, has an advert for Becker's Brewing Sugars on it... This is a good one. I've seen it argued by homebrewers that brewing sugars are a waste of money. The line of reasoning g...

Re: Ginger

I made the Ginger Saison* out of Sam Calagione's (of Dogfish Head fame) book - An Enthusiast's Guide to Homebrew Beers . It used 55g of crystallised ginger, which went in 1 minute before flame out. It was quite a few years ago, so I can't remember exactly how ginger it was. I think I cultivated some...

Re: Food dehydrator

I've got a nine tray Excalibur dehydrator, I've used it to dry hops in the past. I found that you really have to turn it down, as it dries out and crisps the edges quickly, but the centre is still damp. As the fan is also quite close to the hops, once they start drying out, they tend to get blowing ...

Yes Silex or Polymax Ltd are my go-to for bespoke sizes
I hadn't come across Polymax Ltd before, the thinner tubing is cheaper than Silex, but the beefier dairy tubing is even steeper!

Cheers,

Re: Mash temp probe position

Checkout this post by PeeBee -> RIMS and HERMS temperature sensor position; hopefully it will answer your question. TL;DR you might want to look into putting the probe in a t-piece, on the return into the mash tun from the HERMS coil.
