[WTB] Hand pump beer engine

03 May 2017 - 04:47 PM

Before importing one from good old England, anyone got a working hand pump they aren't using? I feel I may have need of one sooner rather than later.


Yeast under starsan

16 April 2017 - 10:17 PM

weird thing right.. I was fermenting a RIS...


anyway, after the initial cleanup




I set to a rapid blowoff..




was holding sterile water so emptied it and put 500ml of starsan, that yeast was under starsan overnight till I just rinsed it with sterile water..


Im not %100 on the effect of the yeast under those conditions... anyone?

Eurotag 1000lt deep freezer

could also be the 1300lt one.. cant remeber but its bloody big.. twin compressors, double lids,

holds -18 to -20 easily and evenly.

Pretty sure I paid about ~$1200 + transport for it a few years ago

its held tons of hops and my yeast library.. would make an epic keezer, I cant justify keeping it just for yeast and it wont fit anywhere else.

couple of surface scratches on the lid from boxes and a ding on the lid from the Solar installers, does fot affect performance in any way.

Bloody good freezer and its will need a large trailer. Can measure if someone is genuinely interested. It's on wheels so maneuvering is a piece of piss.

Hop shots and Thai

13 April 2017 - 11:49 PM

Last beerfest at Kynton, the Royal George Hotel served us compmasters up a feed of Green Thai curry.. being the hop knob I am, I naturally ripped out some liquid hops, the Mouteka extract as I recall.. it was stunning... also may have been drunk, but does that actually matter?


Has anyone else had a go at integrating hops and food?


My mate at work, Chinese fella, got some zomes from me a few years back and they pick the growth on the plant to use in salad.. I get any hops that they produce... win win..


I think hops and flavors have a whole new direction it can go, all new flavors, all new possibilities.. a green curry with simcoe/mosaic/citra?




I admit I might have just gone next level hop adiction but tell me Im fucking wrong... try it..
