Re: VWP instead of oxyclean

I’ve just ordered a Mark II keg washer (after seeing another post on here). I appreciate that it is another outlay but not only will it will make cleaning much easier but will use only a fraction of the amount of PBW.

Worth considering.

Re: Beer tap connector

If I had planned a bit better I would have installed the tap in the centre of the door so that when there are two kegs inside the fridge the tap (on the fridge door) sat between them. Unfortunately as I only originally intended using one keg at a time I offset the tap to one side. Now when I try to ...

Beer tap connector

In order to fit 2 cornies in my beer fridge I need to change the tailpiece on the back of the tap shank to a 90 degree one. They seem to only be available from USA or China which means a long wait. Don’t suppose anyone has found anything similar in the UK. I’ve tried all the obvious places like Keg ...

Re: BM20 Table/Stand Suggestions

I use an aluminium “step up”. Very strong, folds away for storage and handy for other uses such as decorating. You can buy a 600mm long one for about twenty quid from somewhere like Screwfix.

Re: do campden tablets go off?

All my acids, salts and chemicals are miles past their sell by date. Some come in such large quantities compared to the tiny doses I use that I would be throwing away almost full containers if I stuck to use-by dates. Never noticed a problem though. Either I’ve got crap taste buds or I’m just lucky....

Re: Blending Different Brews

A little bit later. Around 1978. The barman would be chatting and forget to stop pouring so I often ended up with a full pint of bitter AND a bottle of light ale for the price of a pint [emoji6]

Blending Different Brews

Yes, handy if you over bitter a brew and can tone it down with something less bitter. I remember my standard pub tipple when I was a teenager was a pint of light and bitter [emoji3]

Re: First brew of 2018 - Fullers Pride clone (sort of)

Fullers use brewers caramel to darken their brews. You can buy it from the HBS but it is quite expensive. I don’t worry about the colour these days as long as it tastes good.

Re: Gelatin fining

Just a word of warning. Gelatine works well in kegs or cornies but not so well if you are bottling as it makes the sediment more fluid and easily disturbed when pouring.

Isn’t wheat beer supposed to have some yeast in suspension?

Late hopping for bitterness

If you're adding hops only 15mins from the end, does that mean you're only doing a 15min boil? Doesn't seem much point in boiling for, say, 45mins with no hops, and then adding the 15min hops - or have I missed something? That’s exactly it. Because the hops are boiling for less time you need more o...
