Re: Clean-in-place Spray Ball - ANY Fermenter/Keg

I thought about a spray ball not long after getting my conicals. Until I dismantled the tri-clamps and discovered yeast had got to parts of the seal that I didn't think a spray ball would reach, so dismantling every time became a laborious but peace of mind part of the brew day.

Re: clearing beer

Getting mash pH into the right range. Using enough Calcium. Requires you to ignore US advice. Don’t how I forgot this - yes - since I started treating my water, beer clarity has become much less of an issue. Water is very soft where I am. It's alkalinity that's the enemy as it acts as a buffer, res...

Re: Water giving unpleasant earthy taste?

I live close to the Norfolk coast so recognise your water and brew with it without the problems you describe. You don't mention chlorine, do you do anything to eliminate this? I suggest you join the Norwich Amateur Brewers so we can take a little more time tasting and discussing what is happening to...

Re: South East water profiles

Typically they are averages and sampled every 6 months. Buy a Salifert kit to check alkalinity before every brew and get yourself a Brewers water report from wally brew of this Parish.

Re: De-ionised water

Obviously it depends on what is in your water in the first place, have you had a proper analysis? Most of us with slightly, even highly raised alkalinity levels, can make just about anything without using DI or if you like RO water. Diluting with it can help with low mineral Beers like Pilsner but o...

Re: Beer priming for bottling ; temp & residual CO2?

Not Brett then or indeed anything else if it tasted the same. If not that it has to be a measurement problem. If the Beer was truly done raising the temperature shouldn't make any difference. Did every bottle behave the same when opened? Do you batch prime?
