Re: Whirlpool only hopping?

You may not hit your IBU targets. Only downside really, and easily rectified with a 60m addition.

Re: small volume euro kegs..

I suspect these are pub fittings, as they are marketing towards breweries.

You will need to be confident in your cleaning regime too.

Re: small volume euro kegs..

The OEM 2l kegs look like growlers that some shops are selling. Brew builder also sells them at not much more than the Ali express price. There are also 4l versions.

Keep up to date on their uk distro. A good alternative are crusader kegs locally.

The combination means that air can get into the FV sucking up bacteria in the tap in the beer residue from the last sample.

Re: After primary adjustments

You will get aroma from late additions if you no chill, but alpha acids have a lot more time to isomerise.

Add 20m to all late hop additions for IBU calculation.
