    Home brewer to pro brewer

    Thanks razz. There's no one on the face of this earth that's better suited to that role than Chook. Every time they come out to my place to taste a new beer on tap, he's here for the long haul. He always turns up with an esky full of prawns or mud crabs which go hand in hand with a cold one. I'm...

    It would be great to meet you in person & put faces to names. Looking forward to catching up over a nice cold beer & a cracking pizza.

    Home brewer to pro brewer

    Some exciting news for me. I'll be brewing full time at The Wobbly Chook Brewing Company in Yamba, NSW. It's a small scale, pilot brewery with planned expansion to a larger production brewery within two years. Due to zoning & council regulations, the brewery will be focusing on beers brewed on...

    RIP Pistol Patch

    The exact experience for me as well, same time frame when I got into All grain too. He has done some great work over on the BIABrewer.info forum. He will be sadly missed by a lot of us in the brewing community.

    Exactly the experience I had with them as well. My board didn't even work. Rang 4 times, emailed three & spoke to the bonehead that owns it but he denied he was the boss. Like above, go elsewhere, ******* useless.

    Camlock Males

    Cheers. I might have to go all 1/2" instead. I really didn't want to reduce my pump inlet & outlet.

    Camlock Males

    Just a quick question. I need a couple of different size camlock males for the CIP system I'm setting up. Are the 1/2", 3/4" & 1" all the same size? The male end where the female locks onto? I'm needing to run 1" camlocks, male threads from my pump but from the butterfly valves on the unitank...

    US05 yeast - slight after taste and dry

    Temp wasn't my problem. 18deg ferment for two weeks, one week at 2degC cold crash. Taste was there & all following beers using it. I even tried a different stainless fermenter to no avail. It's not a process or procedure problem for me. I don't know what the hell it is but I can taste it.

    US05 yeast - slight after taste and dry

    Mate, you might have an ultra sensitive pallete to certain things like me. I stopped using US-05 years ago for this very reason. I could detect a slight plasticide type taste, almost like drinking water that's been in a bad quality plastic bottle. Very slight but noticeable.....To Me! Friends...

    Fermzilla

    Interesting. All the charts I've seen everywhere don't reflect on that calculation but it makes perfect sense.

    Fermzilla

    The Unitank has a pressure relief valve of 15psi but the tank itself can withstand 30psi, so at higher temperatures, ie: ambient, the pressure required for carbonation exceeds the working pressure of the relief valve. These units are designed to run a glycol system through a coil in the tank so...

    Natural Carbonation using SS Brewtech Unitanks

    Good to know but according to SS Brewtech themselves, foaming can be an issue. Maybe just a marketing stunt so like me, you'll buy something you might not need.

    Natural Carbonation using SS Brewtech Unitanks

    If I decide to force carb it, I think I'll get a sight glass & a longer carb stone & inject it through the racking butterfly valve. The Coil acts like the serving line & restricts the flow so the sample is much easier to test. Under pressure, the tap itself pours basically just foam.
