    Soda Stream Adapter Help

    I jumped the gun a bit. Plenty of gas but now the gas is leaking from the regulator housing, i.e. where the brass tube screws into the housing. It has never leaked before and I don't know if it can be tightened. Doesn't appear I can. Any thoughts. Picture attached. Fish

    Soda Stream Adapter Help

    brand new bottle. The adapter is on as tight as I can possibly get it. Am I right in assuming the soda steam bottle + adapter only should mean gas coming out? If that is the case then my issue is with the adapter. Fish

    Does A Fermenter Have To Be Cylindrical?

    Jamil and John Palmer from The Brewing Network discussed this on one of their Q&A 'Brew Strong' shows. In essence they do believe fermenter geometry influences taste, something to do with currents or vectors / yeast not getting to corners.........don't quote me on it. Yorkshire squares were...

    Collecting Wort For Starters From The End Of The Mash

    I just wanted to confirm there were no dramas with collecting the end of the runnings from the mash for use with starters. This evening after I had my pre-boil amounts I was still able to collect 2 litres of 9 brix / 1036 wort. I boiled for about 15 minutes and have this cooling outside with my...
