      Blew my first Keg of my first AG beer in two weeks. Meanwhile, ancient bottles of extract in the fridge. It's clear what my affinty is, me thinks

        It's both the tap and the quality improvement i think. I did make a few nice extract batches but AG blows it out of the water

        Same with me. Kegging makes a difference - at least to the appearance of the beer too. I'm back to bottles and I'm missing clarity and keg-hopping.

      Huston, we have Fermentation. I repeat...
    4. rheffera
      rheffera
      And the first AG woes continure. no fermentation after 48 hours so p itched more yeast. Given the whole cubing debacle im surprised nothing else was growing in there yet
    5. rheffera

      So as a side effect of my not using a ball for flowers, 4 litres of trub made it into the fermenter, most assuredly covering the tap. i'ts going to be fun trying to keg this.
    6. rheffera

      mash went well. boil went well. but i forgot one thing...i used flowers without a sock/ball. guess what happened to my ball valve. fml. just cubed it tohugh. that took way longer than t should have

        Yob ..afaic it is important for a first time BIAB'er. If oyur getting a 20*c hydro reading of 1.024 from 6kilos of grain something is wrong. By keeping track of the numbers i know this. Btw i used all 'yob hops' today...

        lol..yeah, numbers are good to get a handle on things if it isn't going to plan, my point was it changes and isn't the be all and end all, more often than not (for me) it's misguiding to have 'fixed' numbers

      Just replaced the tap on the urn with a bulk head, ball valve and hosetail. For a man who has no upper body strength i did alright.

      $900 later I've upgraded from extract to urn BIAB(tap replaced) and a kegerator which doubles as temp control ferment. In dog house for a while, but i've got plenty o beer

      I hate the taste of hops. Said no IPA drinker ever.

        That was implied in the "drinker" bit.

      To make good beer one must know their ingredients. Hence, my all cluster ipa to get to know cluster. What can i say, the floral notes are similar to cascade but instead of citrus upfront its pine. and less intense than cascade over all. Based in my tasting i'd say it'd do good in a dark beer
      1. rheffera
        rheffera
        That being said, ii dont think i personally like cluster at this level of hopping. We will see how she is in a month.

      Epic's Hop Zombie. Aroma screams cscade / Centennial but in terms of taste its only there if you hold it in your mouth. If you don't, zero taste. A little disappointing, then again i may just be drunk

        so let me get this straight, you can't taste it if you don't put it in your mouth?
