    When to dry hop

    Great idea! I didn't think of that at all... No idea why. I meant a vessel for 35L of beer. Never needed it 😂 Malted Mick - all good. Interesting idea with the magnet.

    When to dry hop

    Yeah I don't have the space at the moment to get the beer off the yeast, that said it is a conical stainless fermenter so the area is less. I'll rack to kegs in the next 4-5 days. Thanks for the help razz.

    When to dry hop

    Riiight... So a hydrometer tells me 1.012. So the refractometer doesn't handle alcohol well? But the hydrometer doesn't handle temps is that the way it goes? I'm assuming the yeast will fall out and not do much?

    When to dry hop

    Sorry, it was a refractometer - ATC one. Pressure is 2psi.. just because I don't currently have an old school bubbler at the moment. Let it build up gradually, no added CO2

    When to dry hop

    Ok, sounds good.. might have gone in about 24c.. could have killed some off. Should be more patient. Either that or the pressure?

    When to dry hop

    I have a batch on at the moment that started at 1.055 into the fermenter and 9 days laterits at 1.030. How would you say it's traveling and when would be a good time to dry hop? I'm testing using a spunding valve instead of a traditional bubble trap so I can see it has a bit of pressure but not...

    Incomplete fermentation -fix?

    So... Being keg and the fact my Chronical 1/2bbl fermenter is leaking at the lid I didn't pressurize and transfer through filtration this time. I think that there was too much hops at the base of the keg. So I got a lovely fruity taste but you wouldn't want that for all of your beer. Yes, I...

    Incomplete fermentation -fix?

    I think the mash got away from me, I have it recirculating through my HLT and I set my temp controller but I needed to click once more to save the new temp.. does this mean the sugars might not be fermentable? I'll try the jar method today.. will baking yeast prove the point just as good for the...

    Incomplete fermentation -fix?

    I brewed a pale ale and made the mistake of just thinking two weeks was enough time without checking. So I cold crashed to 4c then racked to kegs. When I did this I checked the FG and it was 1.018. I've sampled the beer and it tastes more like a fruit juice than a nicely hopped beer.. Now that...

    Starting an Electric Brew control panel for AG brewing

    Got a Citra Smash brew through the other day. Turned out amazing but the ABV was about 6.5% due to me just rounding up the grain amount to 10kg of Marris otter. Great to drink but after about 2-3L in a session it hits you. I have a 75L SS Brewtech boil kettle on order which will mean I'll be...

    Oxyturbo Aeration Kit

    Heads Up, I had a tradeflame O2 bottle that got used once then Sat there with the regulator attached for about a year. The bottle either emptied or the pin at the top of the bottle seized. The bottle that Reece plumbing had was a different thread to the tradeflame. Got really bad service from...
