    Extra aroma with dry hopping - in FV or keg?

    Yes, no issues? I find it a bit strange that we are worried cleaning, then just just something in...no chance of tiny bacteria or by the time this goes the liquid is mostly alcohol so a natural cleaner?

    Extra aroma with dry hopping - in FV or keg?

    Hi There I have just made a standard coopers pale ale kit. I want to dry hop with amarillo in a few days. Question - do most of you use hop bags or just chuck in? I have steep before and just chuck everything in...Have not really had a probably but seeing this method will make a cleaner beer...

    PET Kegs and more

    They quite good especially for space re fermenting fridge. I guess you can just pull the valve now and again.

    PET Kegs and more

    Interesting, when brewing do you release pressure now and again with these PRVs - because how would know if it is blocked? It would probably look the same as blocked or not? Or can you see if it looks different?

    How To Make Vegemite

    I like them all, but think OXO is the best.. it’s sweeter and slightly meatier...

    Carbonate and maintain carbonation

    I use that coles brand unscented laundry powder ... sodium percarbonate .. $2.50 to clean everything... so that is the best and cheapest 😂

    Carbonate and maintain carbonation

    So you salt scrub your glasses every time? Or every now and again, if so how do you normally wash ? Can just hot water be ok?
