    S-129 Saison

    Hey yuz. It'll Definitely taste different. I've only used belle saison but saison yeast gives a very unique flavor to a beer depending on what temperature it ferments at. I've fermented at 26c and got a very distinct banana flavour from it. It was different and had to warn people before...

    Mangrove Jacks Gluten Free Pale Ale

    Hey smidgedy I started brewing due to gluten issues. Had a mate who did all grain and found out about a product called clarity Ferm. Got him to brew me a few batches using it and it went down well with no ill effect so started brewing myself. It's a product you add to the fermenter When you...

    Chest freezer not getting cold

    If the thermostat goes the freezer normally won't run. I've turned a few f&p freezers into keezers most with buggered thermostats and they don't run at all with a broken thermostat. Running constantly and not getting cool must be something else. I had one freezer which had a pin hole in one...

    Stopping yeast post ferment

    Have you thought about trying clarity Ferm? Don't believe it affects the yeast but breaks down the gluten and I have had a few mates who have no known gluten issues comment on my beer not bloating them like other beers do. Would definitely help If it's coming from an unknown gluten sensitivity.

    Keezer build

    The adjustment screw is inside the thermostat. I just put a temp gauge in the freezer and ran it until it got to 2c, disconnected the power then pulled the side cover of to access the thermostat. Mine are fisher and paykel freezers they have a small Allen key screw inside the thermostat and I...

    Keezer build

    I have done a couple of keezers and just adjusted the screw inside the thermostat so that it runs at fridge temp. Was pretty easy to do. Nice job on the keezer. Looks good.

    Pressure Fermenting in CUB Ball lock keg

    I just made a cardboard template of the hole of a corny keg marked it out on the 50lt keg and cut it out with a grinder and 1mm blade. Don't try and cut through all the way at the start just slowly work around The hole till your all the way through. Flap disk and a bit of sandpaper smooths it...

    Pressure Fermenting in CUB Ball lock keg

    Hey Darren. I've made a couple of pressure fermenters out of 50lt kegs but have converted them to ball lock posts with a floating dip tube. I release the pressure first then cut the centre out of the top so I can fit a corny keg lid in there and use two bulk head ball lock posts. Costs about...

    low oxygen transfer for a Neipa

    Hi all, Have brewed my first Neipa which has come out very nice and would like some clarification on the best method for transferring with minimal oxygen so not to ruin it in the keg. So far I have always done the full stellarsan mix in my kegs and pushed it out with co2 before pressure...

    Thanks Bird. I guess WEAL simply uses a small silicon bung for that? And how about the mash steps, do you have to push a button to go to the next step or does the unit automatically go to the next step? btw 12-13kg of grain would give you 60L of about 1.040 - 1.045 wort? Think weal runs a...

    Hey sjek. I think you would be alright at 55lt plus 10kg of grain. 60lt might be pushing it. I haven't tried as I Sparge But on a 60lt batch I'll put 12 to 13 kg of grain and 45lt of strike water and be around the 54 to 55 lt mark. You might have to block the holes on the malt pipe like wiel...

    Hey Kadmium. I know it's a bit late. But this Is my sparge setup. Keggle for a hlt and use a boat winch and a couple of pulleys To slowly lift the malt pipe as the sparge water flows in. Gets me around 80% efficiency most times. I have the 70lt guten and even doing a 60lt batch I can get...

    Yeast pitching temp for lager

    I do rehydrate with wort. Its how I was shown. I've only been doing all grain for 7 months now so I'm no expert. But will consider trying with water next time after reading what mark has said. Tap water around here is low 20s at the moment so will make life easier. mark when...
