    Help- Stuck Rice Lager

    Thanks, PH was set lower because normally my PH comes out higher than what was estimated using brewfather. I don't know what else I can do to get PH right, I'm normally in the range but never hit my target PH.

    Help- Stuck Rice Lager

    I haven't seen the point either, always excepting the use of slight pressure to facilitate low-oxygen brewing. But here is a different take and different purpose, with respect to NEIPAs rather than lagers: Fermenting & Dry Hopping Under Pressure - Scott Janish Dan Learning something new here...

    Help- Stuck Rice Lager

    Thanks mate I do care, and I do have a PH meter. I spend such a long time trying to get the chemistry right. I have struggled to get PH right constantly I don't know what im doing wrong. So every brew should have Calcium in the water (50-100ppm Min) ?

    Help- Stuck Rice Lager

    Right thanks mate Bugger for 70 degrees too high I didn't factor that in as I based the recipe off similar rice lagers and thought that temp was right. This style is typically dry, so if I was to add some enzyme whats it called and how much? Reason for pressure ferment was to speed the lager...

    Help- Stuck Rice Lager

    Hi all My Rice Lager seems to be stuck. I believe brew day went well. I started fermenting 4/12/21 and it now day 8. I'm brewing under pressure 15psi at around 19 degrees. It took off within 8 hours of pitching a 2 litre yeast starter that was on stir plate for 3 days. SG was 1.046 by day 2 it...

    Which Bronzed Brews book to buy?

    Ahh thanks mate, seems like 6 O'clock book was the one that had a bit more non NSW beers in it.

    Which Bronzed Brews book to buy?

    Hi I already own 6 O'clock Brews and looking to buy at least one other book by Peter Symons. I'm currently in the process of making the 1942 Cascade Sparkling Ale from 6 O'clock Brews. I'm interested in brewing a post 1950's Cascade Beer. Ideally something from either 70's or 80's. I can't see...

    1800s Cascade Pale Ale recipe

    Thanks, yeah I understand that. I intend on getting the book. I was keen on brewing something "old" over the weekend and wasn't going to be able to get the book. I also wasn't sure if this recipe was exclusively just in the book or available elsewhere.

    Hi all This water stuff is doing my head in, I think I'm fairly up to speed in other areas of brewing but this really confuses me.

    Help: AG AUS Lager. Do you need starter & Lagering

    Thanks for the reply, let me try and elaborate a bit. I'm a Cascade Fan, yes there are lots of much better beers but as a Tasmanian I do like supporting them, and many of my friends prefer drinking that style. I'm quite aware of the differences of lager and ale yeasts and made both in the...
