Re: Graprefruit Session IPA recipe?

Sorry for delay. Yes - not to the letter, though. I'll share the recipe on the Elvis Juice thread.

Re: Graprefruit Session IPA recipe?

I have an Elvis Juice clone (20L) on the go at the min. I added the zest of 2 grapefruits and the zest of 1 orange at ‘flame out’ and steeped at 70c for 30 mins along with the late hops. I also added the zest of 1 grapefruit and the zest of 1 orange (steeped in 100ml of 75c water for 5 mins) along w...

Re: Can I use a power supply with a slightly higher voltage?

Cheers Lee. Voltage is 10.5v. Hoping to get away with 12v as it’s much cheaper for me.
I might just go ahead and risk it.

Can I use a power supply with a slightly higher voltage?

Hey folks, Hope you brewers are all doing well. I rarely post these days (two young kiddies) but I'm still brewing regularly. Need it more than ever these days! Now then... I'm upgrading one of my fermentation fridges to a meat curer. Had the whole thing up and running today then 'pop!' the dehumidi...

Re: Brew Dog Recipes!

Brilliant. Cheers for this. Much better than sifting through the pdf file. Love that I can search by hops too. :-)

AMS - 6 month 'use by date'

Hey folks, Bought some AMS from The Maltmiller. I accidentally bought 2x500ml bottles instead of 1. I thought, no big deal. It'll all get used eventually. Then I noticed that it needs to be used within 6 months. Anyone else surprised by this? Didn't think an acid blend would go out of date. Thoughts...

Re: Basic fermentation cupboard

Nice build Sonicated

Tensbrewer, buy one of these and there will be no need for wiring anything. Just plug and go!

Re: Element switch overheating

Cheers. They look much more stable.

Interestingly... I've plugged it into a different plug socket and it's not as hot. Current plug socket is much sturdier and plug is tight in there...

Element switch overheating

Hey folks, I built this one vessel system recently: http://www.jimsbeerkit.co.uk/forum/viewtopic.php?f=6&t=80104 Having an issue with the element switch on the control box. Gets so hot I can't touch it. This is the second switch I've put on there as the first one melted and died. I assumed that this...

Re: Brew number 31 but 1st one to be thrown

Vinegar sounds like the dreaded acetobacter. I had an invasion of it some years back. Lost 200L, 25L at a time, brew after brew. Killed it in the end with steam and 100c water. To this day I still steam my fermenters and never had a return of it.

Hopefully it'll be a one off!

Portable Corny Options

Hey folks, Have a party coming up and want to bring a corny but without the hassle of taking along my giant co2 canister. Ideally, I'd have something like this. Bloody expensive, though! https://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/Mini-keg-party-tap-CO2-gas-charger-threaded-cartridge-ball-lock-corny-homebrew/3321925...

Amazing! So glad you enjoyed it Matthew. I'll have to brew it again soon.

Enjoying my 6.5% chocolate stout at the min. Sooooo chocolatey - like a dessert.

Happy new year to you.
