Re: White House Beer?

I'm half way through a batch of a cobbled together Honey Ale as my local HBS had biscuit malt in stock. Came out very good using Windsor yeast. For the honey I used a freshly opened clear honey from the heath food shop added at the last 15min of the boil at the same time with the Irish moss. Gave it...

Re: Moreland "Old Golden Hen" Clone

Obtaining the moorlands yeast is the difficult part (i've looked into hens tooth, only place I can find it is from morelands direct and they want £30 for 12 bottle of the stuff plus postage :shock: ) Ive seen recommendation for WLP002 too The Greene King Brewery in Bury St Edmund's also has it. Sad...

Pic of the back of the pack which does mention made in the UK from imported and local ingredients, so hopefully we'll find the range expanding across the UK.

Re: Mangrove Jack's Craft Series Dried Yeasts info

My local homebrew shop was sent samples of the Mangrove Jack range. The very kind manager gave me the Bavarian Wheat and Belgian Ale to try it out and report back with a sample of the resulting brews. As I bought all the grain from him it seemed a good deal all round. I'll double check when i get ho...

Re: Mini kegs

Thats a very good plan Dave, I reuse a lot of Adnams mini kegs with the beer king tap. However sadly they don't seem to last forever. Rust has never been a problem but in the last 6 months two of the kegs started leaking around the bottom tap. I would like to say its a massive problem but drinking 5...

Re: Adnams Old

I tried to brew the Old earlier in the year using yeast from a Mini keg of broadside without much success. I'm going to make myself feel better by saying I must have had the old version of the recipe as I missed invert sugar (rather than the more likely errors in my process). slightly off topic but ...

Cheap pigtail element shroud

Just thought I'd share a moment of inspiration; As I brew in a bag I was in dire need of an element shroud to stop by bag burning. Whilst being dragged round a popular Swedish furniture shop I noticed this large kitchen utensil holder in stainless steel. A few stainless steel bolts from eBay and I h...

Re: Shiny Electric Keggle (many pics)

I went with a heatrae sadia 3kw element. Thanks Barneey, i hadnt seen Dellers strainer. its a thing of much beauty. There should be just enough room under the element to squeeze in a 'Deller patented filter' if im careful. Cheers Darkonnis, thats a good heads up. Armaflex is on the (growing) list of...

Re: Shiny Electric Keggle (many pics)

Thanks Barneey, thats high praise indeed considering your efforts in all things build. I was going to ask you about a tea infuser you posted on another topic. The keg is bottom draining and I was hoping i could fit one as a hop filter. where can such a thing be purchased? All the holes were with a q...

Re: Southwold Summer IPA (American IPA style)

A couple of weeks ago Kegman posted a very handy chart of Adnams ale ingredients. http://www.jimsbeerkit.co.uk/forum/viewtopic.php?f=5&t=52921 Unfortunately you'll have to work out the ratios on your own and get your hands on some Adnams yeast but knowing the foundations helps a bit. I'm a big fan o...

Question for Party Star Deluxe tap users

Afternoon All,
My local ale shop in Bury St Edmunds has started to stock a selection of Philips Perfect Draft 6 litre kegs full of European ale. Does anyone know if my party star deluxe tap will work with these or do you need to buy the special Philips system?

many thanks,

Re: AG mythos

I would love to know a good clone of this could be made. Luckily down here in the East Adnams Cellar and Kitchen shops stock Mythos as does the Tesco outside of Woodbridge, Suffolk (although not sold as cheap as youd pay on a sunny island).

Re: Shiny Electric Keggle (many pics)

Andy, I quite liked the industrial 'death trap' look but if you insist... :) Id bought a double socket box but the keg widens making it difficult to house the thermostat and the element terminals in one. Now hunting for a small box to house just the terminals and then seal all the wires prior to fir...
