Re: Hothead yeast

As a test I brewed, fermented at 38c and took a sample to a brew club meeting 7 days later. It wasn’t the best beer I’ve ever made but was surprisingly drinkable.

Re: Growing hops from seed

I've no experience in growing hops from seed. What I do know is that the resultant plant will be an unknown entity, all of the known varieties are clones grown from cuttings or rhizomes, anything from seed is an unknown. Many years are spent by the various hop people crossing varieties, growing from...

Re: Your favourite Graham Wheeler recipe...

Out of the two Altbier recipes would you make the Nussdorf At Thomas or the Zum Uerige Alt? Both sound nice but I'm leaning towards the Zum Uerige for a bit of extra bitterness. I’ve not made the Zum Uerige but did find the Nussdorf a bit over malty, in subsequent versions I’ve upped the hops more ...

Re: Your favourite Graham Wheeler recipe...

I've brewed the Nussdorf St Thomas or variations of a few times now, I think I might even be guilty of the brew Demig mentioned. Having brewed it with both European and British versions of Vienna and Munich I prefer the versions with European malts, I've used Ireks and Weyermann with good results, t...

Re: Conical Recommendations

They're 51cm wide and 45cm deep, from the back of the fridge to the front of the conical is 46cm but there's enough space in the door to cover that.

It just needs some of the shelf supports cutting out. It can be awkward if you need to flip the lid catches but is doable.

Re: Conical Recommendations

Sorry to jump on an old thread, but it seemed on topic - can anyone tell me the dimensions of the Brewbuilder 14 gallon conical? This is vital info for me, as I need to know if it will fit in my temp controlled larder fridge. I've tried the 'contact us' button via the BB website a couple of times, ...

Re: Hose pipe ban

We don't have a hosepipe ban here atm but last time we did I asked Anglian Water and was told I couldn't use a hose to my immersion chiller.... fortunately normal British weather resumed shortly after.

Re: Black Mould? on the top sides of the fermenter

My stainless conicals had a black ring the first time I used them, I've no idea what it was though.

Re: Mosaic Pale Ale.

I'd look at reducing the 60 minute bittering addition ( and maybe use a different hop as suggested before) then use more Mosaic later.
The dry hop 6 days, is that after or for? If for that may be touch long.
