    Building a deck

    Laying your bearers straight into the stirrups, whilst perfectly fine structurally, might be a pain in the arse to the get you levels absolute. The idea with the post is to allow you to clamp your bearers level, prior to fixing them in. That is, marking their location, notching them into the...

    Feedback on IPA Recipe

    I like my IPAs at least 1:1 or 1:1.5 ratio for OG to IBU. That is for 1070 I would bump to 70IBU at least. 60/15//5/0 hop additions are pretty good for a layered bitterness/flavour/aroma profile. And get around half your IBU from your 60min addition

    best bottle filler

    I have no experience with other types, so not really a comparison. Have tried the cap, filling with a tube etc, but i find my CPBF very easy to use. Can fill single handed, 100% purge with Co2 which affords no mess, no foam and will avoid any oxidation.

    Wild Saison

    Looks like the yeast has settled and clumped together then has ended up in the glass giving nucleation points. Maybe next time will need to be a bit more careful transferring to the glass. Shouldn't affect flavour though... if you can avoid the yeast that is

    Whats In The Glass (commercial)

    Went to Newstead Brewery at lunch for the Kaiju! Beer Tap Takeover. Was giving them another go after having the Robohop and finding it quite astringent, which i put down to overextraction, but with hindisght from today's tasting i reckon it's unbalanced and way too bitter for the grain bill...

    I used to use glad wrap... but now i've got so lazy i just loosely fit the fermenter lid on (one without an airlock hole) Works good

    Bad taste after Cold Condtion.

    Probably when you took it out and let it warm up a bit to 17C some residual yeast either got stirred up or kicked off a little fermentation. You probably just got a bit more yeast than desired in the second taster glass. Let it condition, then keep it cool and let the yeast settle out and I...

    Have I oxidised my beer?

    This... unless you're leaving your beer for a very long time, you'll most likely never experience the detrimental effects of oxidation. Especially at Homebrew scale.

    AHB Biggest Loser Challenge!

    So i'll stoke the calorie in vs calorie out debate with my own super-non-scientific anecdote. A few months ago i'd stopped losing weight and was sitting at about 96kg. Was reasonably happy, but then started riding with some A-Grade riders that were destroying me, so decided to lose a few more...
