    Kveik yeast

    i have always thought 05 dropped out pretty good. I use Nottingham a bit and I’d rate them similar. But hey. Maybe I’m a ******* moron. Maybe I gave no right to give my opinion on a home brewing website where people brew beer for fun. I always forget just how serious home brewing is. Let’s just...

    Old pickle, mustard jars for yeast

    The slurry is mostly of yeast. After 24 hours in the jar in the fridge the yeast and beer seperate and it’s easy to tip off the old beer and only have the yeast when pitching

    Old pickle, mustard jars for yeast

    Is this for short term storing? I use whatever jar we have. Make sure its clean. Dip it all in sanitizer, for a bit then scoop out slurry ,top up with cool boiled water if necessary and chuck it in fridge for next use. have kept yeast for Over a month an re used with no issues.

    Kveik yeast

    I did 3 batches in a row with it. I had heard the same. The beers were fairly clear but I wouldntsay it dropped out more than any other good flocing yeast like Nottingham Or us05. for me the bottles did seem to take extra time to carbonate though. beers I made were mosaic pale ale - this cane...

    ESB Brewing Kits - What are your thoughts

    I made one of their 3kg tins many moons ago when I first started brewing. Like 3rd or 4th batch 6 years ago. I can’t even remember what it was now. but I do remember thinking for quite a while on my tin journey. it was one of my best beers

    Kveik Dry Yeast

    Nah. Don’t have any way to carbonate at that temp. They just sit in crates in my garage. Sure that’s a factor. that said i do my Saisons up to 30 and they always carbonate pretty fast at room temp.

    Woolies draught 23l kit

    It’s the fact that it is crystal that makes 500g allot. Crystal when mashed alone will make little fermentable sugars and will make the beer overly sweet. Of course taste is an opinion. if you are doing partial mash , and I used to , I’d just be mashing some simple base malt.
