Thanks Jim I had asked for this as a newbie too, I'm sure it will prove useful, perhaps when the list is a bit more comprehensive it could be streamlined and shortened as a topic if all the contributors are aggreable?

I'm rather fond of relays - I can get them to do things for which I would have trouble using transistors :D

Guys,

What about some of the techniques/methods/processes?

Such as;

Cornied
Priming
Pitching
etc.

A list of these would also be useful, to help fill in the gaps! :wink:

Cornied = Transfering of finished brew into a cornelious keg made from steel ( essentially the same as kegging )
Kegging = Transfering of brew to plastic barrel from Fermenter for storage and dispencing
Priming = The use of suggar to create Co2 in your keg. Bung 1/2 teaspoon per bottle or usually about 80 - 120 gramms per keg this allows the yeast still in suspension to create Co2 to gass your brew up.
Pitching = Putting yeats into the unfermented wort.

What does AFAIK mean? :D

Thanks Jim. I am a bit of an Iron Maiden fan (major understatement) and it just seemed rather appropriate for me beer and music in one!
I have to say what a great site and members you have here. The information available here is fantastic, particularly for novice brewers like me. Cheers

When I heard that Saccharomyces Cerevisiae were cultured, I thought it referred to the production process.

I stand corrected!

Do you think they'd like this Yeats:

"A statesman is an easy man
He tells his lies by rote
A journalist makes up his lies
And takes you by the throat
So stay at home and drink your beer
And let the neighbours vote."

:wink:

SRM = Standard Reference Method (of the American Society of Brewing Chemist, I think).

Hmm... I can't say I like Acronyms! :D Its all too much TXT speak!

Now, can anyone guess what my username means?? #-o :mrgreen:

I'd also like some explanation of the brewing terms, the more I read on here the more I am learning but its only by using my own judgment and in what context I have read something. Thanks.
