    Can Conditioning.

    Has anyone tried can conditioning instead of bottle conditioning? If so, how did it go, is there a specific beer level you targeted, as in, how much head space do you leave in the can? Thanks Daz

    Propylene Glycol from Vape Stores

    Hi, I was just wondering if there would be any issue with using Glycol sold in vape stores? it's 99.7% food grade. I live in Newcastle and it's a lot cheaper to buy a 5Ltr of Glycol from the local vape store than it is to get it shipped up from Melbourne. I cannot see it being an issue, but...

    Tinseth hop calculations and whirlpool

    Hi, if you are having a 10 min whirlpool hop addition, would you in theory add 10 mins to each hop additions utilisation (Tinseth formula), as effectively the hops are in contact with wort for an extra 10 mins before cooling?

    Fermenter Fan

    Hi, I have done a search, but nothing definitive has come up. I have purchased a 240v hydroponic fan for my upright freezer converted to fermentation chamber, controlled by stc-1000. Do I have the fan on at all times?, or just have it switch on when the freezer switches on? The fan has over...
