Re: Dead Pony Club

... If you are considering trying this recipe I would recommend you don't barrel it. Most of us who have tried Dead Pony Club will have done so in bottle or can, and I would say it's a drink that suits bottles rather than cask. If you go for cask you will certainly recognize the distinctive DPC aro...

Re: An incredibly boring beer

I think Eric and "WalesAles" have hit on the reason. I see your description with "bitterness 51 EBU" and "perfectly carbonated" and think, "well I wouldn't want to drink it". Way too bitter for a EKG/Fuggles beer, 28-30 IBU would have been enough. More than 2 or 3 PSI of CO2 will destroy the beer an...

Re: Dead Pony Club

I don't know what's happened to mine. The wonderful DPC aroma that was present from the spent dry hops is somewhat toned down in the ale and the flavour is a bit too harsh/less fruity than it should be. Early days yet I suppose. I'll leave it alone for a couple more weeks and see if it improves. If...

Re: Dead Pony Club

... PB, I didn`t know Lychees could talk! #-o WA I said "about", not "to". If my tomatoes thought I was talking to hops there would be trouble. Thankfully sinking all my (expensive) very dry dry-hops is resulting in a flood of different flavours appearing in the beer. And that doesn't include "off-...

Re: Dead Pony Club

... Dry hopping got delayed but should be done today. Two reasons: Fermentation was a bit persistent, FG is now 1.003 (discussed this on another forum, I'm not the only one experiencing this with Extra Pale Maris Otter) ... With a 92% attenuation I doubt I'm going to have a clone of Dead Pony Club,...

Re: Dead Pony Club

Kegging day. But didn't go to plan. When I lifted the lid on the fermenter I wasn't met with a "blue cheese" (thankfully!) but a big pile of very dry dry-hops. The hop spiders were floating a bit high too. I patted the hops down below the surface and slapped the lid back on. Will try again tomorrow....

Re: Dead Pony Club

Hops in. 390 grams (in 42L, fermented in a conical). Half milled and in spiders, half lightly rubbed and chucked in. Not a procedure I cared for. Lots of opportunity to introduce unwelcome bugs. And the loose hops will contain a lot of air (and therefore oxygen): I didn't stir them in and I am just ...

Re: Dead Pony Club

001.jpg 23 Litres in the King Keg tonight. I had 25L but after 5 days the dry hops have supped 2 Litres of it! It smells exactly as it should so just a case of waiting for it to clear and condition. It's going to be a long couple of weeks. Picture shows the spent hops. If this is from just 25 Litre...

Re: Another dry hopping question

Very timely. I'm about to dry hop 42L in the fermenter (in its secondary stage now) and was concerned the hops didn't have enough space to float about in (2x hop spiders, 300x70dia, holding 100g hops each which is about the maximum without packing tight). The only problem being I've 380g of dry hops...

Re: Dead Pony Club

I'm beginning to worry that the two "Hop Spiders" I purchased may not be up to the job. The "Spiders" are 300mm x70mm dia., hops (whole hops, I think I'll move to pellets for dry hopping next time) amount to 380g (I've 42L fermenting). Are they going to fit? Should I start a sweep stake? Looking at ...

Ha. No need to rub it in! I'm scheduled to start tomorrow as it has been way too hot to get going earlier. The water has been prepped in my vessels for a week or more - can't think that should hurt though?

Putting the chiller outside is ideal. But weather-proofed, not in an enclosed "waterproof house". Problems arise if air can't freely circulate around the chiller.

Re: Another question about my bar setup with Maxi 310

The chiller coils are going to be about 3/8" bore, so there is not much point choking the bore down twice; I'd use 3/8" tubing from keg to cooler then 3/16" from cooler to tap (and use 3/8" or thereabouts, bore between the product coils if joining them). Shorten the length of 3/16" tubing. If you ca...
