    I used 1kg of lactose in mine and definitely did not taste any milkyness at all, if anyone it wasn't quite sweet enough.

    Beginners Persistence - Simple steps to some better tasting beer

    You don't need a 2nd vessel for bulk priming, works just as well adding to the FV prior to bottling. I cold crash then add the priming sugar then let sit for a few days to settle.

    Extract Water

    just use tap water unless your local water is rubbish or you are trying for a competition and need to adjust it for the style, waste of time otherwise.

    What are you brewing 2020

    Brewed a couple i found in the database, Hefeweizen, Czech Pils and a slightly modified Pale Ale that i bought as an FWK a few years ago. Just about to start on a Porter that was suggested to me.

    Sharp taste of IPA dry hopped Citra

    I've heard from others using Kveik that when you re-use it you only need about 1/4 for the next brew, i have a couple of packs to try out when it gets warmer.

    pricing liquid vs dry yeasts

    I only use dry for a couple of reasons, i can keep a stack in the fridge and not worry much about shelf life, can buy it a lot cheaper which is a factor for me and it works fine for my brewing. Might try liquid one day but for now dry works for me.
