Re: Grainfather - first impressions

I move to a GF from a 3 vessel system at the end of last year and it is certainly time saving. I used to underlet but now just add the grain to the liquor. I know they are pricey but I am glad I made the change.

Re: Brew kits in the 80s

I never brewed kits, after a few extract brews went into AG, but my Dad brewed Boots kits and the beer was awful.

Re: has the single pot killed the three pot systems

One thing I have noticed with the Grainfather is my efficiency has gone up.

Re: has the single pot killed the three pot systems

I recently bought a Grainfather after 40 years of 3V brewing. The main reason being as I'm getting slightly longer in the tooth I am looking for an easier life. I wanted to stop lifting containers of water to shelves etc. Yes I know I could have set up pumps but in the end with the Maltmillers black...

Yeap! You don't want to be wasting time with all that "chiller" nonsense: Just move here, to the UK, and all your chilling concerns go away. :-?
I have lived in the UK for last 65 years.

Re: Everything beer engine, polypins, cask and questions

I've been using beer engines and polypins (or cubitainers as they're called here) for years and they work perfectly well for 'cask' ale. If they are primed as you would do for bottled beer then they are just like a real ale would be served in a British pub. I hook up the cubitainer with silicon tub...

Re: Brewing liquor question

To me GW's calculate is more leaning towards what the English want from their beers where as brun water is aimed at what Americans expect from their beers.

Re: Worthington White Shield...

HI. Any chance you could post the recipe please? I'm not sure I can, copyright would prevent this going out on the www. It was from GWs 3rd edition. That said, I know Worcesterhopshop sell all grain kits based on his recipes. Sent from my CLT-L09 using Tapatalk When I was a moderator in another for...

Mine arrived today, lots of great looking recipes. I like the look of the schlenkerla smoked beer [emoji16]. But tomorrow will be Worthington White Shield, from GWs 3rd edition.

Re: Beer engine + polypins

I have been using this combination for a number of years. I use 20lt ones and one will last me around 2 weeks. Sometimes the last 2 or 3 pints may be a bit flat but still drinkable, if fact taste wise these are quite often the nicest pints.

Re: Polypin Management

For most beers I will give the beer 10 days in the primary, transfer to polypin and leave to condition for a couple of weeks. If I feel it needs priming I will add the priming sugar a week or so before I intend to drink and move somewhere warmer for a couple of days until it starts to expand then ba...
