    Beer Recipe's Circa 1900's

    Hi guys, My neighbour was cleaning out her recently deceased fathers house, and she found his grandfathers book of "stuff" (her great-grandfather). She's pushing 65 so I'm just taking a guess that the book may be from around early 1900's. Lots of notes on all sorts of things and a section on...

    For Sale - 290mm Round Woven Ss Mesh Screens From Metalmesh

    Hi All, I ordered some mesh screens to use as a false bottom in my Pot in a Pot system. It was the same to order 2 as to order 6 apparently as they had to use a whole width of the mesh sheet to cut 2. They fit nicely inside my 19L Aluminium pot. I drilled a whole heap of holes in the bottom...

    Boc Lpg Regulaor - What Kind Of Hose Do You Use?

    I scored a BOC LPG regulator which I was going to use this on my new Italian Spiral Burner to crank out a bit more oomph. I assumed that it would be a simple case of getting some ordinary bbq gas hose and connecting it up. Unfortunately the outlet on the BOC is an odd size and also is...

    What Do You Do With Larger Batches?

    My wife, bless her cotton socks, brought home an 80L pot as a surprise for me. I'd been mentioning for a while that I was thinking of getting a bit pot next time I was in the big smoke but she found one at a chinese supermarket when she went on holidays. I have a few options I suppose, but I...

    Stupid Mistake With Stc 1000

    Walked past the lagering fridge set at 1*c on my STC and noticed that is was reading 13*c. First thought was oh bugger, fridge is stuffed. Opened it to have a look and saw this..... Turns out I stacked my beer in the fridge & forgot to put the temperature probe back in the fridge...

    Question About Ac To Ac Solid State Relay

    I have a quick question regarding the above, just for interests sake. The load wire gets cut and is input on terminal 1 and output on terminal 2. The neutral and earth are left alone then the load wire from terminal 2 rejoins the cable and it continues to the appliance that you want to power...

    Diacetyl In Hobgoboin....how?

    So I put down Orly's Hobgoblin. Got the wort down to 17*c and pitched half a litre of Muntons premium gold starter. It reached fg after 10 days and I kept it in the fermenter at this temp for a further 10 days. I dropped the temp to 2*c for 10 days and bottled today. Taste test during...

    Can You Review My Idea For A Biab Brew Table

    Here's my idea for a BIAB setup with recirculating temp controlled mash, 2 sparges & a cooling thing. I'm not trying to reinvent the wheel but want to make something that I understand and isn't too expensive but may give me good results and be a bit of fun to do. Things like pump type, tube...

    Analysis Of First Ag

    So I poured my first glass of my first AG brew just then and want to get some feedback from more experienced brewers. It's dry and quite hoppy from the Saaz which I'm happy about. Needs more time in the bottle to mellow though I presume. There is little to no carbonation - it's as flat as a...
