Re: Grainfather all in one brewing system

Will be really interesting to see what price they can do in the UK once transport is taken into account. I would certainly buy one as its looks a nice compact unit and possibly more efficient than my keggle. (plus always fancied a crack at distilling).

Re: Move over braumeister

Re: Left Over Grain

Managed to sort these out now we have a longer gap between the evenings world cup matches.

Still cooling down so will be a wait before sampling can decide if they're nice.

Re: Left Over Grain

The first loaf I tried was just using the dried mash grain and it was spiky and also very heavy. The grinding and sifting is a vast improvement in bread. Going to try and make some burger buns from the spent grain chef this week http://brooklynbrewshop.com/themash/recipe-spent-grain-burger-buns/ wil...

Re: Left Over Grain

Took 6 hours to dry fully, grind and sift down to a flour. Bit of faff but well worth it for the tasty treats. That looks like a lot of effort, but I bet the bread tastes great! I'd love to see the finished product. https://farm6.staticflickr.com/5554/14482136922_a3e5b8224e_n.jpg Pic of the most re...

Re: Left Over Grain

I took inspiration from the Brooklyn brewery and tried to used my spent grain. Have made some nice loaves of bread and biscuits using recipes from http://www.brooklynbrewshop.com/themash/category/spentgrainchef Bowl of the spent grain just after mash http://farm8.staticflickr.com/7391/12137991816_c1...

Re: Adnams Explorer

This is a good suppin brew. The wonderful Adnams ingredients spreadsheet uploaded a while ago by Kegman has been a good guide for the clones I've attempted. viewtopic.php?f=5&t=52921

Explorer seems to be a pale malt base with Columbus and a dry hop of Chinook.

Finally got round to adding hand holes and blackboard paint. Very happy with the way these turned out. Used hard wax oil to seal the insides (in case of bottle bombs). Thank you to lord groan and dean_wales for the plans.

Re: Crates?

Cheers Goosey, that would have been the easiest way to let it interlock but I've already cut the 12 sections out and screwed 8 ends together.... #-o Now all three are built and to save adding extra wood I think I'll go with some metal dowel pins ( http://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/Dowel-Pins-Hardened-Ground...

Re: Crates?

You're a hard task master Cellone. Not sure on how best to do the interlocking. However I might do some handholes on the short ends if I can ever find my hole saw set.

3rd AG of 2014 - Yuletide'ish

I have been looking to keep the festive period alive by attempting to make a batch of Adnams Yuletide using yeast recovered from a mini keg of the real stuff. After adding keg slurry to a starter and a rinsing have a couple of jars like this; http://farm3.staticflickr.com/2838/12137697344_482100a185...

Adnams Yuletide - could do with some assistance

Afternoon All, My local supermarket has been selling mini kegs of the Adnams and St Peters range (as they are the local brews). I picked up a keg of Adnams Yuletide (which promptly evaporated) so I was going to try and clone a batch to refill using a starter from the yeast in the keg. The tasting no...
