    Straining Ginger Beer

    I gave my ginger and lemons a boil, then strained them into Fermzilla. The GB is delicious.

    Mini Keg Discussion / Mods / Show Off - Dedicated Thread

    Hello, I've been using the Kegland mini kegs for the past twelve months. I have 2 x 2L, and 2 x 5L, all with tapping heads. I pressure transfer from my cornys kept in a fridge in the shed into the minis to keep inside the house. I find the KL minis to be extremely well- finished, with no...

    Is it possible to grab the yeast from coopers cans???

    There is a lot of conjecture that White Labs 009 Australian Ale Yeast is Coopers. I've used it many times, and am very pleased with it.

    KegLand Questions and Answers

    I was supplied with the 0-15 with my Blowtie Spunding Valve kit. I found that the range was far too narrow for a novice pressure-brewer.

    How many use bottles?

    Bottling was one of the reasons I stopped brewing 12 years ago. Pressure fermenting and kegging are the reasons I've returned.

    Third time lucky ginger beer

    Well, I certainly wasn't making a "smart ass comment" I was merely saying, that the recipe I use required 500g of grated fresh ginger. I used it, and it was delicious, just the right degree of ginger heat I was looking for. I then looked around for a slightly cheaper alternative to the $47/kg...

    Third time lucky ginger beer

    I won't be. The bottle is nearly 1 litre. I need 300-ish mls per brew. So, I open the nearly-one litre bottle, pour 300 or so mls into the brew, close the bottle, refrigerate or freeze it. Make brew. Repeat. Make brew, repeat. Buy new bottle, make brew, repea......

    Third time lucky ginger beer

    I really think that some people can't understand the most basic English or maths! If 500g of ginger yields 300ml of juice, then a bottle containing 946ml of juice will yield 3x300mls, with a little left over, that I will divide equally. With me so far? So, if in 23 litres I use 500g ginger...
