I might just fire a gazebo up in the garden on brew days 😊
D4V,
Wouldn`t that be dangerous? [-X
Or have you got lots of gazebos to burn?

Re: Lock Down HERMS Build

DAV33 the only way is to try and phone them, it may take a few calls to get someone to answer the phone.

Re: Obtaining barley seeds suitable for malting

I got about twice as much as I planted, mainly down to the fact the wind got hold of it before I had chance to harvest & a lot was lost. I still have the saved seed with the intention to grow it again. The seed I got was from a good source & a well known brewing barley, I cant remember the name thou...

Re: Obtaining barley seeds suitable for malting

I couple of years back I planted a 3m x 6m strip of barley, it grew quite well. APITA to thrash though at harvest time.

Re: Kegmenter DIY

If you can, buy the 2 part expanding foam, it flows so much better than the can stuff.

Re: Kegmenter DIY

I only have the ability both equipment and skill wise to silver solder stainless. Always wanted some welding equipment but the cost is so prohibited for the stuff I would like to do. I do however have a friendly local welder who can carry out such jobs (ex pharmaceutical welder). TCT cutters could b...

Re: Kegmenter DIY

The advantage of having a 4" triclover fitting is to aid cleaning of the keg, the disadvantage you need to screw the fitting up extremely tight as the surface area of the gasket is large in comparison with say a 1.5" fitting, otherwise it will start to whistle under pressure. I also have a 4" to 1.5...

Kegmenter DIY

Having a little time on my hands I thought I would at least try and finish the DIY kegmenter.

Not wishing to spend near £300.00 on a shop bought one, why not make your own, with a few extra's.

Progress so far.

Re: Water treatment at it simplest

I'm in a very hard water area. I have a £35 reverse osmosis filter and prep RO water the day before. Water treatment is stopping me going all grain - I live in a hard water area. Can you link to the RO filter you have? Does it connect to a tap or a hose? [-X never let water treatment stop you going...

Re: Just ordered from MM--stressful!

:D For the Malt Miller it "might" be stressful to place an order but at least you know it will arrive in a couple of days & not have to wait weeks for it to be delivered.

Re: Pepsi/Cola Gas Management Board

Just one other thing when using these boards, make sure that the JG outlets are NOT stressed in any way. These boards are quite old now & will leak if you place any sideways pressure on the outlet gas hoses, its very easy to do especially if you have a kegerator full of kegs. If you have some blanki...

The apps seem very slow to load any profiles, just sits there for a good while before eventually loading. Is the Prem account any faster?

Re: Cannular Canning Machine

Well my machine was just as painful to set up as Barneey’s I’m afraid. But I got there in the end. Whilst I had the cover off I took the liberty to remove the rollers and oil the bearings. Also applied some copper grease to the threads in the hope that for future adjustments it makes it easier (one...
