    Fermentation question

    Hi, i'm still concerned about the lack of progress with fermentation. the hydrometer reading is down to 1040 (so it has moved 10 points in 7 days) but it has been 15 days since pitching. The temperature is a constant 18 degrees. Is there anything I can do to speed this up? I have read other...

    Fermentation question

    Don't worry, I love the hops also, in fact I am attempting to grow some now, so I don't get too offended by it. I prefer hoppy ales and the NEIPA I brewed (in the bottle for 3 weeks now) is pretty good if I don't say so myself. thanks for your take Cloud Surfer. I do steep the grains, I do add...

    Fermentation question

    Yeah sorry, last time I mentioned I was brewing a NEIPA I got some interesting comments on my choice of beer so I was being a bit sheepish. Thanks for the feedback.

    Fermentation question

    Great thanks everyone, happy to wait and learning everyday. It should be an interesting brew, and to be honest I don't drink milk either, however I do like some of the milkshake IPAs, my local brewery in Katoomba (Blue Mountains) does a very nice oat cream IPA.

    Fermentation question

    Thanks, yes I submerged all cans in Hot water to loosen the extract. If the extract is as you say should I try and stir the wort? Silly question, I hear the term wort boil a bit but can't seem to find an explanation that makes sense to me. Is it adding boiling water into the fermenter with the...

    Fermentation question

    Hi all I am now on my 5th brew and really enjoying the experience. I have recently purchased a fridge and with my heat belt have managed to keep my current brew at around 18 degrees using my Inkbird (great advice on that) I am brewing an IPA with Lallemand New England American Ale yeast. I...

    NEIPA do's and don'ts

    Hey all appreciate all the comments. I do have a sense of humour and understand that everyone has their opinions and preferences on beer choices. Just for the record I love IPA, however have never licked a coin. I am thankful for all of you who responded with with some sage advice and feedback...

    NEIPA do's and don'ts

    great thanks for that. Ill work on the 3 x 3 scenario and see how it goes. I'll use ice packs during the day to keep the temperature down, looks like I will be needing a fridge when the temperature starts getting warmer.

    NEIPA do's and don'ts

    Hi all It's been a while since I posted a query, everyone has been very helpful. My 2nd brew, Pirate Life IIPA was fabulous, 3rd brew Six Strings dark red IPA will be tasted this weekend. I have currently got a NEIPA brewing and I have had some conflicting advice versus the recipe. I am not...

    When to bottle

    The recipe is pirate life iipa. The yeast came with the recipe, Rapid Creek Pale Ale concentrate so I couldn't tell you the type of yeast exactly. Does that help? I'm hoping to be a bit more adventurous for my next brew and haven't really looked into yeast.

    When to bottle

    Hi all I have completed and bottled my first brew, FRED IPA. It isn't great, although seems to be getting better the longer I leave it. I am now 3 weeks into my second brew, Pirate Life IIPA recipe. I am feeling much more confident as I have managed to keep the temperature between 18-21...
