    Just bought an 80 litre esky. What size batch can I make?

    Just bought an 80 litre esky. What size batch can I make?

    I moved up to a 150 litre kettle. Took ages to drill a hole for a tap/ valve. Exactly my thoughts regarding a bigger MT. Have not brewed for a while. Maybe this Summer...

    You could also blend with W1762 BELGIAN ABBEY STYLE ALE II ™ or T-58 Dry yeast to get a mild Belgian character.

    Looking for ESB yeast

    There is a lot of grey, but I've also brewed with the equivalent strains of WLP007 (White Labs), W1098 (Wyeast) and S-04 (LeSaffre) and my experience is gold, not grey. I'm affirming that my results, with a number of styles, have been similar when using these 3 yeasts. You said: "W1098 is Wyeast...

    Looking for ESB yeast

    Not sure what you're on, but S-04 is the equivalent to Wyeast W1098 British ale - Ferments dry and crisp . Where did you read that?

    The 3538-PC Leuven Pale Ale yeast saw some early use in these forums in TDA's Fly-Blown Blonde ale WarrenWL63's Pale ales. Very suitable too, for a De Koninck pale ale clone, if that appeals

    Hefe Weizen flavour

    S-23 can be a bit fruity, too. Have you tried Saflager W-34/70 in your recipe? I read that it's OK at warmer temps (ref - Jamil/ BN podcast)

    Celli 3-Way Cobra Flooded Font

    Keep an eye on eBay. I bought a few whole taps for about $15 each. Just be aware that sellers do not always know what they are selling. Pushloc taps or adaptors are required for that font.
