Bells Two Hearted IPA, on my to-do list. Impressive refrigeration setup there!

Re: AG BIAB #14 Wen's Lunch Revisited

Loving the commitment. I start all my brews as early as possible in the morning. Earliest has been circa 4am. All done and dusted by 9!

Re: Mosaic Pale Ale.

Same as kingfisher, don't underestimate the single hop EKG. I did it using St.Austel yeast, one of my best beers to date.

Re: Co2 Leak

I was looking at the used Redditch ones for a while with a guage but honestly the Micromatic mini ones are fine. I went with these, good brand and cheaper. Also brand new off eBay. They appear from time to time. Around £15 each: https://www.micromatic.com/economy/1-pressure-secondary-co2-regulator-m...

My main reg is then a cheap welding one. Makes for a cheap reliable setup.

Re: Converting my BIAB recipes to Grainfather

When I had my BS key it was cheaper to get it via brewadelaide.com. Might be worth a look

Re: Still struggling with chill haze, what cured it for you?

I had best results with chilling right down to 0c after fermentation has finished and fining with gelatine. Crystal clear in a few days every time.

Re: Crossmyloof yeast result

That's good to know, thanks for the update. I've not tried the Real Ale CML yeast yet but most seem to like it.

Re: What fridges are we using?

2 undercounter Hotpoint RLA fridges.

1 connected to an STC containing 2 Crusader kegs and the other running off a BrewPi controller as a fermentation chamber.

Circa £40 each on eBay.

Re: Crossmyloof yeast

I've only done 1 Kolsch with the CML yeast. Result was good but I've switched back to W-34/70 for now. Got a few packs of the Kolsch in the fridge too.

Re: Yeast viability

I'd get it in a 1L starter and see if you get activity. Should be plenty for that batch size.
