Re: New indoor brewery and 'cellar'

Nope, done it again.

Photos placed inline after selecting from my computer. Big green tick next to them. Preview showed them all there. Submission removed two of them.

Thanks for the advice, Jim.

Re: New indoor brewery and 'cellar'

And finally for today, the beginning of the beer cupboard.

Thanks for looking.

Re: New indoor brewery and 'cellar'

This is driving me mad! I put three photos into this post. The preview shows them all. Then I press 'submit' and two of them say 'image no longer available. So, today's progress photos will have to be in three posts. Firstly, the grill on the outside of the garage. Optimized-Brewery build 5.JPG

Yup, should be able to change the air in the garage (5m x 3m x 2m) twice a minute.

Re: New indoor brewery and 'cellar'

This is the last one for today. I'll work on getting more than one photo per post tomorrow.

New indoor brewery and 'cellar'

By the end of next week my brewing gear should be moved into a recently dry lined single garage. Plus an insulated cupboard will be built large enough to hold three King Kegs. The cupboard will be fully insulated and cooled by a plate evaporator (I think that's what it's called) like you have at the...

Re: Hose pipe ban

Interesting list of exemptions. You can use a hosepipe to water vegetables grown at home, and to water newly bought plants for 14 days after planting them. Fascinating!

Re: Brite Tank Cooling with Maxi 110

My understanding (possibly wrong) is it needs the python pump on to stop the water freezing to much, ie if the pump doesn't come on the water could all turn to ice and the pump keeps it moving to stop it. Also I used a maxi 210 to control the temp on a 200l fermenter and it was fine and could crash...

Re: Protofloc Tablets Expire.

The Protafloc granules I use are nearly two years past their 'best before' date. They still do the business.

It's a 50g tub. I use 0.75g each brew so they'll last a long, long time!

Re: Brewday mistake--oops!

Thanks all. Seems as though my slip up won't be of major importance. It'll be interesting finding out how a 56 EBU beer tastes. Never made one this high. From the comments on here I'm kinda thinking perhaps the exact EBUs don't matter. I spend ages on Beer Engine tinkering around to get 42, or 46 or...

Brewday mistake--oops!

Oh dear. Just added 30g of Motueka hops 30 minutes before the end of the boil instead of 15 minutes before the end. Silly me! Graham Wheeler's Beer Engine tells me this will raise my final EBUs from 50 to 56. Quite a jump. The OG should be somewhere around 1.053. From 78% pale malt, 15% Vienna malt,...
