    Brewing temp

    I found this after a quick look. https://www.craftbeer.com/beer/beer-styles-guide After the stuff the start of the article it has a bunch of style guidelines expected FGs when brewing to style. Of course as homebrewers and even commercial brewers are not always brewing to style but thought it...

    Brewing temp

    It'll be different depending on what recipe/style you are brewing. A dryer thinner body beer will finish with a lot lower FG than a more full bodied beer. Think of the difference between a Dry Pilsner or Brut IPA vs an Oatmeal stout or Oatcream IPA. The unfermentable sugars and adjuncts in an...

    Fermenter King Jr - review or feedback

    My local LHBS carries the Keg King Fermenters and says they are awesome. He said as long as you clean them after you package and don't pressurize them up past reccommended then they work really well. I have not personally used though so take with a grain of salt

    Water Profiles: Burton On Trent

    Not sure if it will actually get to 5.13 this was just going off the software, which is what I have let do all my water calculations based off my source water report. I get the basics of water chemistry (Sulphate to chloride ratio etc) and I just let the software do the rest and add what it...

    Water Profiles: Burton On Trent

    Reviving an old thread. Would you use this profile for an ESB? I have a recipe that suggests it but throws my PH out (down to 5.16)

    Fining with Gelatine when bottling

    Hey all, Wondering if anyone regularly uses Gelatine for fining? I am thinking about it for my next brew. My only worry is that I am bottling and am worried the gelatine will drop too much yeast out of suspension and I will have trouble bottle carbing. Has anyone successfully used this method?

    Voss Kveik Recipe Ideas

    Sounds great! Thanks for sharing. Gonna give this a go soon. Probably go for an APA I've brewed recently but change up the hops and use Voss in place of the BRY-79 I used last time. Although the BRY-79 ripped through the wort in about 3 or 4 days also.

    What does this taste mean??

    what sort of fermenter are u using? If it’s a PET check there’s no small scratches or anything as that can harbour bacteria. I ditched the Krausen ring on my coopers fermenter as I could see small scratches, probably would’ve been fine but I got spooked.

    What temp did you ferment at for this one? Was the orange pleasant? I have heard it can taste like overripe fruit and can dominate. Good to know if it didnt.

    Sounds like a good beer. Let me know whether the voss overtakes the hops or not.

    Voss Kveik Recipe Ideas

    Yeah I've heard it throws more of that orange/citrus flavour at higher ABV and also underpitching? And also to hit it with 3x the normal yeast nutrient, I put nutrient in every brew anyway. I've also heard that the citrus/orange it throws is more like an overripe fruit flavour and can dominate...

    Voss Kveik Recipe Ideas

    Yeah mate I have watched pretty much all his videos. I actually have his American Pale ale in bottles now. Been about 10 days and feeling good and carbed so going to try one tonight. I ended up using BRY-79 instead of Kveik after looking into and talking to the local homebrew shop. They...

    Voss Kveik Recipe Ideas

    Hey all, Have some Lallemand Voss Kveik in the fridge I am thinking of using on a brew. Wondering if anyone had some go to recipes or styles they have used this on. I have heard mixed things. Some people say it is a very clean yeast, some say it has a definite funk that doesn't suit a lot of...
