    Advice for 1st recipe please

    Hi, I know you probably want a solid beer for your first attemp, but using 7malts is just overboard for the 1st AG. Honestly, making a SMaSH beer would be a better idea. Give yourself a few of them for dialling in the system, getting water volumes and sparge volumes right with a few keg...

    Dry hopping amber ale?

    TBH those are not the type of hops for aroma, they will work but you would be better off grabbing some more like Citra, Mosaic, Amarillo or even Cascade or Centennial

    2 step dry hop technique in an original Fermentasaurus

    To add the hops and cold crash at the same time, effectively you dont get contact time. That temp change to cold drop hops, yeast and protiens out of suspension. I often dry hop twice, once during ferment ( high Krausen ) and then when ferment is finished, purge with Co2, open and drop hops...

    Hazyness is NEIPA/Hazy IPAs

    Hi, One of my favourtie styles is the belgian wheat beer but after many many makes I found it would always be clear in the keg after 2 - 3wks. What i found was that when I changed my mash rest temps this improved the haze formation that stayed in the beer. I add this as MHB will be able to...

    Foam, carbonation and kegging

    Try truning down teh pressure as the flow control under 10PSI pressure is causing additonal foam. I can serve my beer on 20KPa ( 3psi ) no worries, serving at 120KPa has issues

    Foam, carbonation and kegging

    What is your serving pressure for that length of line? or is it on the full 10Psi and using the flow control to serve?

    Dippers backyard BBQ wars- amateur brewers.

    had not even seen a single piece of advertising for this. 100K per annum is a decent start into the industry.

    Bitter as f@#k!

    100g of Warrior would be the reason, its a solid bittering hop. It is though used by Dogfish head for the 60m, 90m and 120m continuoulsy hopped beers but with Amarillo and Simcoe in even proportions so it can be used but not as the dominant hop during dry hopping

    Consistently missing FG target

    Fom what I read two things are the stand outs: Mash temp at 67c - quite high and leading to a higher FG Yeat Strain - S04 - a low attenuating yeast These 2 things combined are seeing a higher FG, interested to know if they taste sweet, to me 1020 would be on the sweeter side. I would suggest...

    Furry clumps on fermenter

    yep she bad. drain and nuke that thing. When making lagers its pretty much 3x harder than making ales, fact. If you want to make lagers, you will need to get your yeast cell count and viability very very high. Id suggest at least 2 packets next time, even 3 which is expensive but its a...
