    Why do ALL of my can kits taste bad?

    That's the effect of the constant temp. Years ago when the fermenter sat between, say, 15 and 30 degrees, the krausen sludge blew all over the top of the fermenter and out the airlock. (BTW I don't use an airlock now).

    Why do ALL of my can kits taste bad?

    I used to get the dreaded "twang" 30 years ago. But today brewing ales at 18 deg in a fridge using: 1 can Aust. Pale Ale 1kg dry malt 25g each of Nelson Sauvin, Amarillo, Chinook hops US-05 yeast in a Coopers fermenter, I make a very tasty beer. It's so good that commercial beer has no taste...

    Hop combo.

    Hi brewers I'm looking for a 2 (or 3) hop combination to produce a sweeter beer along the lines of 150 Lashes. In the past I've used an Amarillo and Nelson Sauvin pairing, also Nelson Sauvin, Amarillo, and Simcoe with varying success. Maybe need some bittering to round all that out? Anyone...

    Australian Lost Beers

    My very first drink of beer was a Castlemaine XXXX tallie swigging with my Senior Scout mates in St George Square, Brisbane, one night long ago. XXXX has never tasted as good as that first drop, and never will now after brewing my own.

    Continuing Jokes Thread

    I was having trouble with my computer. So I called Jaden, the 9 year old next door whose bedroom looks like Mission Control, and asked him to come over. Jaden clicked a couple of buttons and solved the problem. As he was walking away, I called after him, ‘So, what was wrong? He replied, ‘It...

    A quick survery for those who have never entered a homebrew comp

    I'm reluctant to enter my beer in any comp because it would show up how bad the other beers were. :bowdown:

    Aldi specials

    Not a bad drop. Drank it in NZ when I was there.

    Lazy Yak - has anyone managed a good imitation?

    I don't know any home brewer who would comment re the "qualities" of big brewery beers. And as there are no tossers in this forum, you'll be lucky to get a reply.

    Aldi specials

    Moving away from Aldi for a moment... I bought a 6 pack of 150 Lashes at a bottle shop recently and could hardly taste it. Before I started brewing I thought it was the good gear.

    How To - Gelatine

    Mate, you'll have to reform yourself Like I did :rolleyes: or buy more equipment. I only need to brew once a month as I only drink 1 PET a night. :eek:

    How To - Gelatine

    I don't really understand why anyone would want to use gelatin(e)? or another clearing agent. :question: My beer is in the fermenter for 14 days then bottled for a month which drops everything out quite well. If you wanted it any clearer you'd have to be a Virgo, like me. :bigcheers:

    Continuing Jokes Thread

    I bumped into my ex wife earlier, and she said, “I haven’t seen you for years, how are you?” I said, “Not bad. I’ve got a lovely flat…” She interrupted, “A fucking flat? I have a three bedroom house with a garden and a garage. You’re still a loser”. I said, “Like I was saying”, I smiled, “I’ve...

    Craft beer bars in USA

    If it's anything like the South where I did a tour of New Orleans, Memphis, Atlanta etc they have "local" beer on tap everywhere. I simply asked for their most popular IPA and enjoyed them all. Also available at Walgreens (chemist chain) and bottle shops. Even had it on tap in a shopping mall in...

    What about the chill haze effect with bottled beer? That will still happen, I'd imagine?

    New research on dry yeast

    New research on dry yeast

    Dear oh dear. Let's shut this thread down, shall we?

    New research on dry yeast

    Totally agree. The whole thing blew up because some brewers prefer to re-hydrate their yeast and some prefer to sprinkle the packet onto the wort. It turned into an argument regarding who was right. It works just as well either way, apparently.
