Re: 12 Days and Still Going

Tape the Inbird Sensor to the fv with bubble wrap covering it. The vial of steriliser will have a different thermal mass to your full fv.

Also, in terms of using hand pump, you will find lots of info on here if you do a search for “beer engine”.

New to AG but not new to brewing, need friendly help and advice please!

If you can find a local home brewer that would be willing to host you for a new day then that is a great way to get a feel for things and lets you try it without buying any hardware. It can be a lot of fun to be with others :)

Re: Shorter, cooler dry hopping times

An interesting post Scott Janish on why dry hopping cooler and with shorter contact times may be beneficial in a few ways. Very interesting read with sufficient evidence to warrant giving it a go. That’s what I figure too. Also the more I read about pellets and flower hops, from both studies and br...

Re: Shorter, cooler dry hopping times

I’m blaming Digby and Hanglow and this thread for jumping in the car this morning and grabbing a load of Franconian (and other) beer this morning. I think I may have well got the last 4 bottles of the Spezial seasonal smoked bock in the country until next October as it’s definitely sold out at the a...

Re: Shorter, cooler dry hopping times

An interesting post Scott Janish on why dry hopping cooler and with shorter contact times may be beneficial in a few ways. Thanks for posting that. I've read quite a few of his posts and have always learned more from the science than the usual opinion pieces that blight debate in home brewing. Ther...

Re: Shorter, cooler dry hopping times

I’d not (shockingly) actually heard of Annafest but Franconia is on my must visit list, there is a bar in Berlin that actually gets casks from there regularly but that does look amazing with everything just stuck in the forest and with a big variety of local beers. I’m planning on going to Bamberg i...

Re: Shorter, cooler dry hopping times

An interesting post Scott Janish on why dry hopping cooler and with shorter contact times may be beneficial in a few ways. Good post. I recently had to bottle a schwartz bier about 40 hours after dry hopping with saaz at 46f (8c). Were you happy with the results? I get to drink quite a lot of schwa...

Re: SS Brewtech Thread Size

Thanks so much everyone! I'll give the 3/8 a go, it's for the CIP so doesn't need to be perfect. Incidentally, mine is a fixed head I've been using it on the fernentasaurus via a 3D printed disk, worked a treat using a submersible pump in a builders bucket [emoji106] Sent from my SM-G950F using Tap...

Re: Kegerator - More foam than beer

Do you have some pictures of your setup, it might show something. How are you measured those temperatures? If you are opening the fridge to measure the temperature it will be changing pretty rapidly, depending on ambient. What is your equipment from keg to tap and what is your line length? How are y...

Beer Engine With A Cornelius

One of the reasons they I always purchased “new” (I did buy some that were 2 years old but essentially as new) corny kegs, once you have fettled about with them, replaced parts and lost a batch or two are the second hand ones really significantly cheaper?
