    Hey Chris. I leave my pump off for the first 10minutes after mashing in. I find this helps to let the grain absorb all it's moisture before recirculating and helps to get better flow through the grain bed. I also stir the grain every 10 to 15 minutes which seems to help with efficiency. I...

    I had the same problem with my 70lt Guten not long ago and it turned out to be a problem with the screen. I think they are about 35 dollars and easy to replace. Would be worth trying before buying a new system.

    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.

    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

    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...
