    Can my bitter batch be saved?

    Not that bad, I'm not a big fan of a lot of bitter at the best of times and I've been drinking it. Seems like the punters want to see it blended, it's a good idea but I'm not sure I have the fortitude to spend a whole brew day saving it, especially when I'm dreaming about a Belgian dubbel...

    Can my bitter batch be saved?

    Ok, well here's an update. I fermented it at 16 for 7 days and 18 for 4 days, dry hopped with 100g of something on day 5 (abandoned the recipe). It's drinkable. It's definitely bitter. Nowhere near what I was imagining, which goes a lot to what Mark was saying - its not the 186IBU that...

    KegLand Questions and Answers

    I bought three of the flow control disconnects and I can get them to be anything but foam machines. I have the duotight FFL ends on them, and am pouring from Nukataps, but have tried a picnic tap and a pluto gun. I've tried long and short lines, high and low carb, different temperatures...

    Can my bitter batch be saved?

    T Thanks Mark, it always seems to be you pulling me out of the shit!! Much appreciated. Would you ferment it as is? Is there any difference in diluting it now vs after its beer?

    Can my bitter batch be saved?

    Brewfather says 20L of top of water gets me back down to 48 IBU. I could do that by splitting the wort in half, adding 10L water and doing 2x 21.5L ferments. Am I back in the game?

    Can my bitter batch be saved?

    I've made a terrible mistake. I was brewing an extra special (expensive) NEIPA that called for 300g of aroma hops, 15 mins @ 80 deg. I misread the recipe, and boiled them for 15 minutes. Brewfather tells me this would give me an IBU of 186, which is just slightly higher than the intended 41...

    What type of keg thread is this?

    That's great info Mark, yeah you're right it has an old label that mentions chocolate syrup. The existing port is good as gold. I presume the old digger was using a bike pump to dispense it from that port. I'll see what I can arrange, there's some good machining shops around here I'll put the...

    What type of keg thread is this?

    I scored a mini keg from an old digger, wanting to put ball lock posts on it but not sure what thread this is. Can anyone help me out? I presume they sell adaptors as he has one ball lock post on there. Thanks in advance!

    Purging fermenter after adding wort?

    Great info, thanks a lot. I know it's off topic but going on from what you said about getting off the trub before two weeks, is there any benefit to getting rid of the trub earlier?
