    Contamination, kveik is a different story.

    Voss kveik under pressure

    Yeah the little buggers can be a pain, I use the spare bedroom (don't tell the wife) You make a good point though, I do actually use the spare bedroom but spray around it with fly spray first and then keep it closed up, no idea if this makes a difference, it's just how I do it.

    Fermenting in 50L kegs and Bucket blasters

    Yeh, as dibbz says a spray ball requires higher flow/pressure, by using a fixed spray head KL have been able to save a couple of dollars on the pump, no problem with that as long as it works, but just like trump, anything that's not their idea is "rubbish" and doesn't work as well as "their"...

    Voss kveik under pressure

    Just a thought Nick, do as Kadmium recommends "You can just top crop it (get a mason jar that's sanitised, sanitise a ladle, and scoop out some of the krausen while its fermenting" Just use a sterilised jam jar if you don't have mason jars, and chuck it in the fridge, as he says it will keep...

    Fermenting in 50L kegs and Bucket blasters

    The limitation with submersibles is temperature, I've got a similar setup using a big pond/aquarium pump, works great but I don't go over 30c, which is pretty much the max rated temp for PET anyway so nothing lost there. I'm in the process of building a cleaning/sanitising station for my...

    Voss kveik under pressure

    Oh dear, here goes what little reputation I may have as a craft brewer. Like you I have some Philistine friends/family, and despite my best efforts they remain firmly in the megaswill camp. Sooo what's to be done? Not wishing to spend any more than absolutely necessary, or waste good...

    Voss kveik under pressure

    Voss will produce citrus notes, lots fermented hot (37c) and unpressurised, less if cool (20c) and under a bit of pressure (35 kpa-5 psi) but it wont produce what I think you mean by "clean" A bit more info might be helpful, what are you trying to achieve? If it's a lager and you are looking at...

    You're obviously quite young! Or punching well above your weight! 🤣

    KegKing now at keg-king.com.au

    If I could make a suggestion, make them "stackable", I don't mean in the fridge, floor space is valuable, and if you have several kegs on "standby" especially 10L but applicable to 18/20L also, the ability to stack em up in the corner would be priceless, the base of these things is a fairly...

    Gout remedies that work

    I thought gout was something you got in your ankle/foot?

    Yeast Starter

    As WEAL says, it's "points of view", my post was merely a reference for how I do it, and hopefully why. It's not a case of "This is how you do it" just hey guys this is one way of doing it. I think it's a German saying "ask 5 brewers the same question, and you will receive 6 different answers" ;)

    Caps for Screw Top Long Necks

    That's really good to hear mate, having "been there done that" (TWICE!) I know just how stressful it can be, my first was an absolute nightmare, I basically walked out with the shirt on my back, she got the house, car (of her choice, we had 2) boat, motorbike, the lot, and still gave me grief...

    Yeast Starter

    You will probably find that 5L is too big for that stir plate, I would suggest a 3L, you need a vigorous vortex that's going almost to the bottom of the flask for effective aeration, unless you are using an air stone in which case you don't need a stir plate. You mention an aeration system, is...

    Yeast Starter

    Playing devils avocado here, why not just chuck in two packs of dried yeast? Imho the 11gms supplied as standard is a bit light on (it's interesting that Coopers are now selling dried yeast, but in 15gm packets, don't get excited it's all generic stuff) With the recent advances in dried yeast...

    Caps for Screw Top Long Necks

    Yeh just plonking along thanks. Ahhh, the old how to fit 23L into a 19L vessel conundrum, quite honestly because of all the faffing about setting up I only bottle special high gravity brews, Ris's, barley wines, Belgians, that sort of thing, and then it's usually a 10L brew which nets me 11 or...
