Re: Flameout additions.

Re: New flavourings from MM

Not sure whats in the MM ones. I thought they would have to list the ingredients. Indeed, being (potentially fatal) allergens you need to be clear. The hazelnut one seems to contain hazelnuts, but the peanut one doesn't contain peanuts. I will stick with what I know to be safe (for me). Whatever yo...

Re: New flavourings from MM

I have used the hazelnut, pecan and maple flavours from https://www.stefchef.co.uk/collections/ ... -ascending to good effect. As they are essences rather than extracts they are ideal for me as I am allergic to most nuts, and these are nut free.

Re: Co2 - food grade

Ah, I see you said threaded bulbs, and the ones on the site I linked to say food grade for the unthreaded bulbs, but don't specify for the threaded one...curious!

I don't think the taps are meant to be removed, I didn't know they even came out?

The hot condition leads are not meant to be used with extensions, was it plugged straight into the wall Oz?
Indeed it was.

Re: Question on IPA's yeast scavenging.

A quick update. I now use one of these with a short piece of silicone hose attached to the nozzle to take the sample of wort. It may look expensive but it is only 1.5 times the price of commercial liquid yeast. https://www.amazon.co.uk/Syringe-200-ml-Enema-Washes/dp/B014SPHHNK/ref=sr_1_1_a_it?ie=UT...

Re: Kettle elements

I notice the brewbuilder and angel both sell hot condition plugs. These must as good as the lindy ones suppose it depends on p n p after that point The ones that melted came from them, and didn't have the notch in them that a proper C15 hot rated connector will, although this was 18 months ago and ...

Re: Question on IPA's yeast scavenging.

I take about 450ml as per Ian's method and then make a 1L shaken starter 24 hours before pitching for 19-22L and pitch the entire starter. Works well for me.

Re: Question on IPA's yeast scavenging.

@IPA how do you decant your wort from the fermentor into the bottle? This sounds like the easiest yeast ranching method in the brewing world :D Do you sanitise or sterilise the bottle? I use a green 500 ml ex fizzy water bottle. You can use a dark brown PET beer bottle but it is a bit harder to obs...
