    KegLand Questions and Answers

    Good point, didn't really know about the ester reduction in pressurised fermention. Also, all you other points are sound :). Also, I'm glad you didn't take offence to my post (unless you did) as I re-read it this morning and I came across as a dick :/.

    KegLand Questions and Answers

    ...Fermenting at 20°c, so the fermentor liquid would be higher than that. My fermentor ATM has the probe on the side, insulated as is standard. And the liquid is 1°c higher when I checked it this morning. Sure I could adjust my settings and set it to 1°c lower than I aim for, but who's to say...

    KegLand Questions and Answers

    If adding a thermowell (weldless) as mentioned above to a Kegmenter. Would this mean that you would advise against pressurising the vessel? Either for fermenting or carbonation.

    Production time - 6 1/2 days for Guinness - Min 2 weeks in FV?

    I'm testing a speed ferment as we speak. Put down a 15L 1.048 brew with nottingham yeast on Saturday night, by Monday night it was 2 points off of predicted FG. Kept under 20°c as far as I can judge. I dry hopped last night, will cold crash on Saturday and bottle Sunday. I just want to see what...

    Should add I rushed this as I didn't wait to get a grain mill, so blended 3.5kg of grain in a blender (obviously not very well either) and ended up with crap 50% efficiency :(

    yeast washing and sodium metabisulphate

    Seehusen; yep, apart from not getting to making a starter yet and using camden treated water, that's how I did it. Been in the fridge since the 26/2. Nice layer of yeast at the bottom and no signs of mould etc. Lfc_ozzie: going to make a 1L starter tonight. See how it goes. I bought some test...

    yeast washing and sodium metabisulphate

    I wanted to have a go at washing and saving yeast, it was only US05 but it fermented like a beast and plus if I can save $5-10 per brew that's good too. The only thing was;instead of using boiled/cooled water to mix the yeast bed into solution, I used the remains of my 25L Jerry can with my...

    Just had my first bottle gushers

    When I say whirlpooling, I mean the hose is curled around the bottom, and the action of the wort entering the bucket moves it in a circle- I don't use a spoon to whirlpool the shit out of it like in the kettle to build a mound of trub. Unless this is still likely to oxidise the beer? I had read...

    Just had my first bottle gushers

    I think I've figured this one out, but just wanted some clarification. I've got a raspberry Brown ale in bottles. FG of 1.01, in bottles since 18/2/17 A few bottles that's I've drank were fine. But I've just opened two in a row that gushed. I've just checked the gravity after drinking and...
