    Ink bird

    Here's how I roll. Heat belt wrapped around the lowest practical point of the fermenter, which in my case is the bottom rail of the fermentasaurus, plugged into the 'heat' side (duh) if the Inkbird. Probe duct-taped to the side of the fermenter about an inch below the top of the liquid level...

    Young's Double Chocolate Stout

    Mark, how would you rate that book in terms of the 'clones' being fairly on point?

    About a cup in five liters of hot water into a mop bucket for the floor (sealed concrete), and about a three to one mix in a cheap spray bottle and a wipe down keeps the fermentation chamber (converted upright freezer) pathogen free and lemon scented.

    Its absolutely got its place as a studiously applied cleaner and disinfectant around the place, just not so much in the HB toolkit when far better options are available. Plus it really gets your whites white.

    Mate.. the shits like $1.50 for 2 liters at Coles. Better still, stretch your budget to some no name un scented sodium percarbonate loaded nappy wash. I think its about $3 per kilo. ******* around with nasty chlorine for 'shits and giggles'? Each to their own I guess.

    Kegging Vs Bottling Beer

    Super duper. Can this process be made slightly more 'vigorous' with higher temps? Say we're using the ubiquitous US05 that can tolerate up to 25 deg. Anything to be gained / lost by holding our keg at say, 23 deg while it carbs up?

    Kegging Vs Bottling Beer

    Kegging. If only for the fact that there a couple of decent restaurants out my way who observe the correct definition of BYO and a man can enjoy a homemade beer with his Massaman curry if he chooses. Chill a few flip tops in the freezer for half an hour ans a slow steady poor from the Pluto gun...

    Continuing Rant Thread - Get it Off Ya Chest here

    ome Amiable and then some. My business just received some of that very welcome 'stimulus' cash. I think somebody over there spiked the water coolers with MDMA.

    I wonder what the waste will be?

    Oh no, another kick in the balls for our filthy coal industry!

    I wonder what the waste will be?

    That would make for a nice chance of pace from them being the biggest polluter.

    I wonder what the waste will be?

    I hear its about ten years off..

    GUTEN

    So do you need to allow for extra grain with your recipes with the Guten? I was doing full volume brews for months with my old set up and couldn't understand why my OG always went to shit until I happened upon this article. https://byo.com/article/skip-the-sparge/

    GUTEN

    Do you always re circulate via the return pipe? Some brewers (as in, the YT videos I've watched) prefer to adjust the flow so it remains under the return and drains (purely) back through the bed. On the face of it at, at least to me, that would seem to be the idea. Have you tried both ways? Make...

    A Guide to The Jamaican Beer Scene

    Honestly. Visiting Jamica for the 'beer' is about as legit as visiting Columbia for the ******* Refajo..

    Any Plumbers Here

    Indeed, plumbing doesn't require advanced degree in fluid mechanics, and you may be very handy yourself, but thats the exception, not the rule. I've personally seen jobs bordering on criminal stupidity. One that springs to mind was a lady in a duplex complaining about a burst of pressure...

    Any Plumbers Here

    Unless you're a licenced plumber / drainer, *you're not permitted to work on drainage. End of story. https://ablis.business.gov.au/service/nsw/notice-of-work-plumbing-and-drainage-/33677 *Unless of course, you find a plumber willing to sign off on your work.

    Triple Helix immersion chiller

    I'm guessing the sheer heat exchange from wort to the metric tonne of copper in that thing probably negates the use of water at all..
