    Sweet taste? Help!!!

    Thanks Mark I do a full volume biab I measure the temp with a temp controller in a thermowell a few inches from the bottom and always stir and measure with my thermapen at the top. I stir at the 20min mark when I take my mash ph sample and then once more at another 20mins or so. As you say that...

    Sweet taste? Help!!!

    It is a cloying toffee taste to me, it may be i just don't enjoy the crystal malts taste as when I do a smash beer I seem to enjoy it more for a everyday beer. Was fermented at 19c for 4 days then taken up 1c a day to 22c then cold crashed for 36hours at 1c.

    Sweet taste? Help!!!

    Thanks for the reply. I only tried the bicarb as the local home brew guy suggested it but I really didn't see the point either. Was a 60min mash and 60 min boil, have included brew stats, was off on numbers by a fair way this brew. I'm starting to suspect and infection of some sort as my last 2...

    Sweet taste? Help!!!

    Iam having a constant issue with my beer coming out overly sweet. Could you please look over my last recipe and see if anything stands out. I have taken alot of precautions to lower oxygen to the point that this beer wasn't even dry hopped and then all the standard low oxygen options were...

    Hop stand utilisation

    Thanks. I personally wouldn't have thought the recipe IBU's were accurate as I have brewed a few recipes of my own using this software with large 80c hopstands and have not noticed large bitterness levels. Will go for the extra 60min addition and assume the lower levels predicted are close enough.

    Hop stand utilisation

    Hello brains trust. Please see attached pictures. I'm planning a 3c's pale ale and when I move the recipe over to my profile on brewfather the hopstand give a very different amount of ibu and compensates by upping the 60min boil addition. I have checked the hopstand utilisation and it is 23%...

    Help - ready to rack, but dry hopping has clogged the tap. Fixes?

    Put a wedge under the tap side of your fermenter while it cold crashes and it will settle to the back.

    East gippy hydroponics and homebrew

    East gippy hydroponics and homebrew opens in bairnsdale on Tuesday. I'm not affiliated with them in anyway but I'm so excited to have a local homebrew shop that now means I can pick up grains on a whim and brew more. If you are a local let's support them and keep them around.

    A nod to Crankshaft

    So after some reading I'm interested in using k met to scrub oxygen. Am I better off just bying straight potassium metabisulfite or is adding half a campden tablet to a keg of water fine. Also what's the opinion on adding one of the above to the finished beer at packaging instead?

    This batch has lasted longer but the sweet cloying taste is now coming in😪 Might try dry hopping at yeast pitch next time.

    First try at adjuncts

    Just did my first ever secondary and adjunct fermentation. Recipe is Dan Stockwell's cherry ripe stout courtesy of brew taste style on YouTube. Was a good tasting stout out of the hydro sample so looking forward to trying the finished product soon.

    I buy from both too, the snub nose is the 1st choice but as you say it will depend on hight as I use a chest freezer as a ferment chamber so will have to do the numbers.

    I took the co2 from the last part of fermentation but I agree that it is not very practical, I will be getting an all rounder or snub nose next time I'm in Melbourne.

    Retrying my bentpoke crankshaft that failed last batch due to o2. This batch i tried this and also have put the hops into the keg and purged to give it a really good shot. Has the usual bad hop taste at present that should mellow out soon. Will let you know how it turns out.
