    Rice Malt

    Hi All, I was wondering if anyone has tried using Rice Malt Syrup as an adjunct to their brew. If so, what are your thoughts on its value. I have a friend who drinks Asahi and likes what I have been brewing so I thought I might give rice malt a try to see if it gets closer to the Asahi. But then...

    A big hi-diddiley-ho to you all

    Welcome BfB, all you need to do is ask and someone will know. The info is endless. Once I found the basic "have to do's" 1. Sanitation and sanitary practices 2. Temperature control 3. Yeast type and amount 4. Oxygen then no Oxygen. 5. Carbonation 6. Etc. The next most important bit of advice I...

    I'm confused? I'm not sure if I am allowed to laugh at that or not.

    I agree with what CapnClunks is trying to say (well I think it's what he is trying to say). I'm now going on sixty five and am feeling pressured every time I go out because I have to be very careful in the words I must choose when expressing my thoughts. My kids constantly pull me up on things I...

    How many use bottles?

    Beauty with bottles they are (mine are) 330ml. With beer on tap I would use a pint glass and probably wouldn't stop at one.:doofus:

    CO2 Back up

    I've just found an adapter on ebay....I didn't know they existed and didn't think of looking it up before. But then, why should I look things up when I can just ask here. :rolleyes:

    CO2 Back up

    Just bottling, I am being anal I know, it's just that I did a comparison test in a batch where a dozen bottles weren't purged with CO2 and there was a definite taste difference.

    CO2 Back up

    Hi Guys, I have a 2.7kg CO2 cylinder and gauge which I have attached to an air gun for purging my bottles. I began to worry about getting caught halfway through bottling and running out of CO2. (I'm not sure how to tell how much is left in the cylinder). I have recently acquired a full soda...
