    Wanted Mash Tun , Urn And Ring Burner Brisbane

    Ive got one of those insulated 50 litre Rogue kegs, with the top cut out - handles left on, and a fabricated SS lid which would need some isulation made for. Didnt get around to drilling the hole for the ball valve, but its thin metal so would be easy. Also means you have the option of putting...

    Burnt Beer...

    Probably not really rescuing it how you meant but, i would bottle up half the keg and use for cooking - stocks/stews/curry, and tip the other half. Its the beers that you have a problem with that hang around taking up prime fridge real estate. Chalk it up to experience, and get back to brewing a...

    Ahb Merch: Simple Really 2012

    Similarly cocko, am i right in thinking they cant embroid the "simple really" graphic on the back of a hoodie rather than printed? Just imagining it also will crack and fade etc if printed.

    Home grown Chinook, left a lil' longer than I should have, and used fresh (wet) produced a distinct onion/shallot flavour in my harvest beer this year. Faded with time. Seems consistant with the above, and perhaps Florians comment about hops growing in parks around Berlin if they had been...

    Bottled Biab Losing Flavour And Not Ageing Well

    Yeah, i think "taste of carboard" is probably at the more extreme end of oxidation (found that out by royally aerating finished beer when filtering it :icon_vomit: ), and at the milder end of symptoms is things like loss of flavour and aroma, stale malt character, and overall dull-ness.

    Bottled Biab Losing Flavour And Not Ageing Well

    No mention of oxidation yet. I would say if you're loosing flavour and aroma abnormally quickly it might pay to have a bit of a think about all the points were oxygen might be being picked up in the process from after pitching yeast, and also that beer stored cold will slow oxidation (and other...

    Beer Won't Carbonate

    First of all - is it actually carbonated? Does it look flat but taste fizzy, or the other way round?

    Beerbelly Mash Liquor Return Dish

    If you DIY - slotted spoon minus the handle and some stainless tube joined with some silicon washers, as seen here, works a treat. Its removable (goes through the lid) so not a worry with dumping out the grain, and adjustable. Sorry to blow my own horn, just rather chuffed with how well it...

    Benefits Of A 3v Brew Rig?

    I think it main difference largely comes down to sparging options, and these have often been very debatable, lots of opinion there. As mentioned above, with 3v for me its about how i want brewday to flow - slow, leasurely, methodical. Also, im a sucker for a false bottom and that ruled out the...
