    Grain for stout- soaking them

    Miran, I recommend that you read 'How to Brew' by John Palmer. It is an online book well suited to beginners. It is free and easy to find. Just google 'How to Brew'.

    Grain for stout- soaking them

    He may be referring to cold steeping the roast barley.

    Bitter orange peel vs powder

    White Rabbit White Ale bottle yeast is easy to culture in my experience. I thought it was a good wit yeast when I tried it. I've tried culturing the Hoegaarden bottle yeast to no avail. I only use 1 stubbly when I culture yeast so it works out to be pretty economic.

    220 year old Shipwreck Yeast

    Interesting points made above about the feasibility of a 220 year old yeast, or perhaps more correctly, a yeast spore being resurrected. I still don't give a rats ass about the fact it might be 220 years old. I'd rather brew with a yeast that is likely to give me good results. If it turns out to...

    Can the Coopers Porter HME sub for their Stout?

    I wasn't suggesting nbilling use it for a stout or porter. I made a reference to adding hops. TBH it probably could be used for the above brews. London Ale III is an awesome yeast. I'm assuming Verdant is a good dry alternative. The reviews I've read have been positive. I've not seen it...

    Can the Coopers Porter HME sub for their Stout?

    Hi nbilling, Have you read John Palmer's online book 'How to Brew'? A lot of the good tips in it on how to make great beer. As far as yeast is concerned, I think the Coopers kit yeast is pretty good, and I quite like the esters it produces. It should be sufficient for the task you wish to use...

    Hop Rhizomes

    Hi Bob, 'Aussie Hop Head Buy and Sell' on facebook has a number of different varieties via the 'Silver Springs Hop Farm'. Stuey's prices are a bit steep though in my opinion, but they're ok if you're desperate. Stu doesn't have the variety Victoria, which in my opinion is the best variety for...

    220 year old Shipwreck Yeast

    It's pretty doubtful that they succeeded in culturing a 220 year old yeast.

    220 year old Shipwreck Yeast

    I tried culturing wy1469 from a bottle that had been kept in a cellar for a couple of years and it didn't start up even after several months. I seriously doubt a yeast would come back to life after 220 years. There are so many good yeasts out there to choose from, why bother farting around with...

    220 year old Shipwreck Yeast

    I personally think the whole thing is BS TBH. It's more than likely just a wild yeast that was floating around the lab. I mean, did they even try to do a dna test on the dregs in the bottle to verify proof of concept?

    NEIPA do's and don'ts

    Well if you want to focus on all the factors let's not forget about choosing a suitable yeast. 1318 is a good one. One could make a NEIPA with a single malt. As far as I am concerned, grain bill is largely irrelevant. The point of NEIPA is adding lots of hops is to achieve a huge fruity hoppy...

    NEIPA do's and don'ts

    It's been said before and I hold the same view. "Why would anyone set out to make a cloudy brew by adding certain grain additions?" NEIPA is cloudy because of the large addition of late/dry hops. If you're not getting a cloudy brew from adding lots of hops, and trying to compensate by adding...

    NEIPA do's and don'ts

    Thanks for pointing that out. I predicated my statement on the fact I had read other people suggest it and it seemed about right. I doubt one would get the same sort of haze if using a large amount of hops and boiling the bejesus out of them. It's only natural to assume it is the result of hop oils.

    NEIPA do's and don'ts

    NEIPA will be hazy due to high level of hop oils. Cold crashing wouldn't change that. Cold crashed beers have a cleaner taste to me, less of the rank leafyness pellets seem to impart on account of the very fine particles. I grow my own hops and I don't cold crash, but I don't dry hop either...

    Awesome, I have 30 varieties of tomatoes started for this season, and I grow chillies as well. Actually, growing some extra Kracanup and selling the cones through here would be a good way to get some reviews up online. I think it is a great hop. If you're using as much hops as you say, you...
