    Couple Of Ferment Fridge Questions

    No idea about the cheapest repairable fridge or about refrigeration gas but if I was starting out in AG again I'd go for an all-fridge (Got that) which should easily hold 2 x 30-litre fermenters & after getting that I'd put my dollars away for a fridge-freezer that would take care of all my hop...

    Style Of The Week 30/4/08 - Vienna Lager

    And yet another reason to use BeerSmith Bribie. ;) A !00% Vienna grist is always the best choice when paired with a decent liquid Lager yeast IMHO.

    Biofine

    Oh! Give it a rest Batz. :p We've seen multiple pics of your Biofined beer but must agree with you that racking to secondary is best. Looking forward to seeing a pic of your latest Biofined Wheatie. PS --- WHEN! Oh when are we going to get our old Smileys back & give this latest Yankee rubbish...

    White Labs WLP059 Melbourne Ale yeast to be released

    Still a bit of my 1894 Macclesfield XXXK Pale Ale Wannabe left in the keg. Dropped nice & clear a week after the above post. This yeast is an excellent choice for chewing up sugaz. Multiple thanks to Peter, London Yeast Bank & White Labs.ITO. :bowdown: Doing another recipe from Bronzed Brews...

    Spunding Valve

    So how is this prospective BB going MJ? I'd be keen on one if the price is right.

    White Labs WLP059 Melbourne Ale yeast to be released

    "Whole Lotta Shakin Goin' On" (Thanks Elvis LOL!) alright DCB but once you've the yeast out of the tube & into another 100 ml or so of sterile water then it's easy enough to split into tubes. Added Biofine to the keg (10 g) & here's a pic of the first pint after dumping the sludge from my 1894...

    Show me your Mini Mill setup

    Electrical box was from Hayman’s Electrical just up the road from where I live. A little on the expensive side (forget the price) but it’s completely waterproof\dustproof which is good what with all that flour dust blowing around. On reflection, if I was doing this again I’d take the time to...

    Show me your Mini Mill setup

    Just a couple of minutes with the old Cranker Bribie. You can mill without a table if you use both hands to hold the drill. Pretty small pic but I think you'll get my drift.

    Blowoff Suck Back

    An excellent choice if you are fermenting a Wheatie,Whit, Saison or a similar beer.

    Blowoff Suck Back

    That's been done with not-so-good results. :thumbsdown:

    Blowoff Suck Back

    I’ve found that a larger diameter blow-off tube (combined with a half-full 3-litre juice container of boiled water) works well. especially when using top-cropping yeasts where you want to save the (blown-out) yeast but that’s a subject for another thread. Just a two birds\one stone sort of...

    Yeast washing question

    You ideally need a ratio of four parts sterilised water to one part yeast slurry for a successful result & a parallel-sided vessel is best according to the "Yeast" book This glass vase from a local el-cheapo emporium holds 4.5 litres & works brilliantly. Having said that, other vessels of...

    White Labs WLP059 Melbourne Ale yeast to be released

    He should be sweet at an anticipated 72 IBU Bribie? ;) :) The 1887 Cascade XXXK is on P.265. Almost went for that one but decided on the 1894 Macclesfield XXXK on P.269 which is in the cleaning-up process & should be Biofined & kegged in about 10 days. I subbed the sugar with home-made No2...

    Starter Wort

    Hmmm! I might get hold of a few mason jars & give it a go Danscraftbeer. I am a bit set in my ways being an old fart but your points are noted. :)

    Starter Wort

    I freeze the (purposely calculated) left-over & strained wort from the kettle in empty 1.5-litre juice bottles, thaw out when needed, dilute to 1.040 or thereabouts, re-boil & then cool down to room temp in the sink ready to add my tube of (room temp) yeast.

    Biofine

    Have a look at Hoppy Days. Biggest bottle I can find/need ATM. Happy to be corrected but TTBOMK retailers buy in bulk & split into bottles of their choice. Ask for a deal on a bottle you supply. You never know your luck.

    How to identify if I have a ball lock or pin lock keg?

    A pic is worth 1000 words. :)
