    mangrove jack’s cider essence

    hey all, so i just made a mangrove jack’s packet cider and am about to keg it, and noticed it says to add the cider essence and then stir and leave for 24 hours. i’d rather not stir up the fermented cider and yeast and wondered whether this essence could just be added to the keg and then rack...

    luckily, the pump was completely covered by private health (they cost about $950 odd) but the sensors are the expensive part. the part that actually monitors your levels.

    any other type 1 diabetic brewers?

    hey mate, the pump isn't automatic whereby it acts on its own as a pancreas would but it's similar only because i'm using a sensor, which is the expensive separate, optional (but in my opinion, needed) part. the sensor is a CGMS (constant glucose monitoring system) which is bloody amazing. it's...

    hey all, so i've been an insulin dependent diabetic since the age of 5 (now 38) and today had an insulin pump fitted. it's fantastic. life-changing already. just got me thinking, are there any other type 1 diabetics on this forum? any issues with your brewing or drinking? i'll happily admit i...

    so all your whirlpool hops during your 20 mins you reduce to 15%? interesting. that's a lot of extra hops haha. i just amended my whirlpool utilisation to 25% and upped the whirlpool addition. will experiment there and see what my pallet thinks :) i do as per your second paragraph except i...

    oh right. i haven’t dropped the utilisation on mine though - did you do that because you drop the temps? for this beer i wasn’t going to drop temp on whirlpool. having said that, the temp would slowly drop over that 25-30 mins but i haven’t really factored that into hop utilisation

    i normally vary and haven’t decided which i like best yet, but for this brew (haven’t done yet) i’ll keep the temp as is. i’ll re-brew it another time and lower temps and compare only ‘technically’ that would reduce the ibu

    i always how clear my GF wort is, until i lift the inner basket to sparge. i always get grain in the boil. whirlpooling usually fixes it, but i'd love to get that clear mash wort into the boil

    about 100gm of simcoe in the whirlpool mate. aim for 45-50 ibu was what the golden road brewer suggested.

    can't wait! it was 100gms for 25mins to make about 49.7 odd (for my 23L batch) so i rounded it up :) i'm considering shortening the whirlpool though and just adding another 30 or 40gms. thoughts?
