    Chinese Hops? What Next

    "5. Understand 20 kg lot orders. If an order does not make 20 kg it wont be ordered. PERIOD. Rememeber that" I reckon if you lose one of your hops due to this rule, your other ones should be safe. Spread the pain. Don't want people losing out completely

    Hello Forum Moderator, Anyone There?

    I disagree, The Chinese Hops thread is in the pub, and that should be able to go anywhere. The Bulk buy thread is fairly short, and very much to the point. I'm loving the longer thread. Keep it up.

    Would Like Comments On My Brew Rig So Far..

    Not sure if I've got my head around it right, but with your herms / chiller - will you be using the same water? It would be pretty inefficient and slow to heat the water in the herms right up, and then cool it right down again. Could you ditch the hot water after it's done its business and then...

    Calling All Math Mental Giants

    Add half as much again. For ever 1 oil, you had 20 fuel. Now you want 30 fuel, so you add another 10 (ie half a litre in your case)

    Are You A Skimmer?

    I always skim. I'm pretty sure it's not hot break, because the foam forms before boiling and before 'the hot break' when the proteins clump together. I remember someone on this forum mentioning that their kids love eating it (provided they haven't added any first wort hops). So I decided to try...

    6 Craft Beers I Should Put On Restaurant Menu

    I reckon it's great that you're going to have some good beers on your menu. All Queensland beers might be a good idea. XXXX and Gold all the way. Mount Tamborine Brewery has some great beers. Speak to Ian (beersom on this forum). Also Burleigh Brewing, Sunshine Coast Brewery. Cheers, Wrenny

    Refractometer

    Yeah, Final gravity is tricky. Because the alcahol distorts the light too, you need to use some fancy formula to work it out. I use beersmith. I love beersmith. First off, 9 brix gives og of 1.035, which sounds low, but assuming it's right A reading of 5.5 brix on the fermented wort then...

    What's The Most Efficient Liquor To Grist Ratio If Space In The Ma

    I don't have a HLT, so what I do is this. Mash in about 2.5-3 l/kg which just about fills up the esky. If I'm in the mood, I'll do a lazy decoction (ie just scoop and boil, not worry about resting the decoction at mash temp). About half an hour before the end of the mash, put all my sparge...

    My Second Ag Turned Out Beautifully!

    Yeah, crystal adds color, body and sweetness. I've seen some people say max 10% in a batch, others max 20%. Looks like you had 14%, so maybe I was too quick to say too much. I usually only use a couple of hundred grams. As long as the beer is balanced and tastes good. Most of the different...

    3 Ag's This Weekend

    I've been honing in on a winning pilsner for a friends wedding. The first one I did had D Saaz and it was super fruity. Mk2 has normal Saaz and it was earthy and spicy. That's when I looked deeper and found that they are very different beasts. The D saaz (from NZ) is more like citrusy Amarillo...

    My Second Ag Turned Out Beautifully!

    Good on you guys. My first 3 AG's were infected, but the perseverance paid off. And you are dead right, the extra effort of AG is definately worth it. jojai - 1kg of crystal is heaps. Lucky you've got an mountain of hops to cover it. As far as recipes go, there are a heap on the forum here...

    How Are Your Hops Doing?

    Definately. I think that was the idea of the Rhizome register created recently on a wiki. It's not just to show off how many hops you've got. Cheers, Wrenny
