Re: Brewing alcohol free

By raising the PH of the liquid mash you don't have the grain husks only the wort so extracting tannins should not be an issue. :?:

Re: Brewing alcohol free

To help with the burnt issue I presume pre filtering before boil might be best.

Re: Brewing alcohol free

Being thinking about the issue of encouraging alpha amylase instead of beta. Under normal mashing at 64c/68c range we tend to opt for the low 5 PH range but in the cold mash scenario to produce low fermentables with some dextrins I'm thinking about flaring PH.

Re: Any brew clubs in north wales?

If you hop on the ferry you can link up with a few clubs in the Dublin area. Capital brewers, south dublin brewers, garden county brewers or head to north county brewers

Re: counter pressure bottler

Not clear in my picture but my beer valve is one of them plastic tube pinch clips that you have a soft silicone tube pass through it. This allows the beer to pass through from the corney keg to the bottom of the bottle without any break in the pipe. No where for dirt to collect along the way.

Re: counter pressure bottler

Yes, I plan to put a light in to be able to see the bottle fill. An automatic stop valve would be handy though :-k

Re: counter pressure bottler

It first Evacuates, then adds C02, then opens to fill beer into bottle, then opens snift valve to slowly vent off counterpressure.
