    Boiling the alcohol out of beer for a N/A brew

    There would need to be un-isomerised alpha acids in the beer to increase IBU, but that is unlikely to be the case. What has probably happened however is that the perception of bitterness increases...

    Yeast Starter FG

    People check starter FGs? Perhaps I'm more relaxed than most, but It's done when there is clearly no activity left after 3 days :) And even then, if it's not fermented out completely, It is just a starter, after all :)

    Pomegranate Beer

    My old lady made pommygranite biscuits, I think they would work in a beer pretty well!

    No Chill In A Fermenter

    Doesn't sound like a great idea mate, be careful!

    Brew Booster

    Keep things CLEAN! Clean, clean clean. Use a good cleaner, PBW is the go, Starsan sanitiser is the other must-use. Pitch two packs of yeast, not one - Higher pitching rates are KEY to good extract. Control your ferment temps, an old/cheap Gumtree fridge will do the job - keep your ferments...

    Gotta go a bigger vessel mate! 40L is the magic batch size, two kegs and a couple of longies from that - perfect!

    What type of electrical socket for the future ? 15A? 20A?

    Single phase 20A is the go mate. Then you can have a 2400w element and a pump going safely!

    Pirate Life IPA

    The IPA is bloody magnificent! A 6 pack gets necked before bed all too often.
