Re: Digital refractometer

You can brew a lot of beer for that money !!! For the record I have several optical refractometers and hydrometers Several?! That would drive me mad. I'd spend all the brewday comparing them against each other! Guy Ps How much beer could you brew for the cost of your hydrometers and refractometers?...

Re: 3/8# Beer Line Experience

Ignore all the line length/diameter calculators and get your carbonation right and you will not have a problem. Have you ever seen a bar with kegs under the counter use these ridiculous line lengths? You can serve beer from a cornie using a tap with flow control attached directly to the out post.

A small investment into a carbon filter would be no bad thing to remover any chlorine.

Re: Belgian tripel germolene smell/taste

Almost certainly caused by chlorine contamination after the wort has cooled.

Re: Corney Keg to Beer Tower Set-Up. FOAMING

Your temp and pressure is not the issue. The seal is likely. Do you have just 1 keg? Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk Pro I repeat the only cause of beer foaming is over carbonation. Try my experiment and see for yourself. Plus it should not be necessary to have the gas connected if beer is still...

Re: Corney Keg to Beer Tower Set-Up. FOAMING

The simple answer is that the beer is over carbonated. It is not foaming at the beginning because secondary fermentation has not finished. But as this fermentation continues the carbonation increases and causes foaming. The solution is to ferment out until the real fg is reached and then prime with ...

Re: Fermentum Mobile yeasts

Quick update; the starter got going really quickly and activity was over at about the 36 hour point. Once in the wort, bubbles began coming through the blow off tube after about 4 1/2 hours. Now, 24 hours later, it's going like the clappers. Blow off bucket full of overflow. Just off to open the fe...

Colour 75 EBC Thanks for recipe, I checked in BS and found that color in the range 35-39 EBC. Beersmith is wrong ! I will post the reason why when I fire up my desktop. The late Graham Wheeler gave me a very detailed reply when I asked him why his colour varied so much from other programmes. Appare...

What’s your mash schedule and yeast?
Mash in at 60°
Raise to 66° and hold for 90mins
Raise to 78° and hold for 10 mins
Boil 90 mins

Top fermenting yeast. Strain not too important as any nuances are lost due to the strong flavour of the beer.
