    Mixing Cascade with Galaxy hops

    That's...not what I suggested. The SNPA recipe as linked above is not dry hopped. For other recipes where there is dry-hopping, I'd suggest doing it before final gravity is reached. That way, you have some CO2 production to re-purge the vessel of oxygen. I do 24h (high krausen) for NEIPAs and...

    Mixing Cascade with Galaxy hops

    I'd definitely recommend using the official recipe as-is for SNPA (well, use whatever hop you like for bittering). It's not a hop bomb, and it's not dry-hopped. Appreciate it for what it is, and how it influenced the APAs that came afterwards. Add wheat, a bit of chinook and dry hop with...

    "AF" Beers

    I made Nanny State and was thoroughly disappointed. Nice hop aroma, nice body, but awful harsh bitterness. Probably because the BU:GU ratio is huge. Anyone had a similar experience? Going to give up on NA beers and focus on hop water, Berliner Weisses and session IPAs instead.

    Stellar San and Star San

    Fair correction. While it has similar concentrations of phosphoric acid and DDB sulfonic acid, it’s not the same recipe. I was just trying to make the point that it’s not like Stellarsan is a diluted knockoff that doesn’t work. Glad you like the KK stuff. Might try it once my sanitiser runs out...

    Recipe feedback NEipa

    What made you arrive at 15 g/L for the dry hop? Are you familiar with the Dr Shellhammer work with the 8 g/L "sweet spot" for dry hopping? Notably, he found that oils responsible for citrus-type flavours saturated earlier (closer to 4 g/L) with tea and herbal flavours at a higher rate. This may...

    No Chill Cubes

    Sorry, completely missed this. Simplest option is just to cut or bend the dip tube 15-30 mm, but better is a floating dip tube, as sold by the usual suspects like KL. Alternatively, make your own (I've done both). Then you replace your liquid dip tube with a gas dip tube, to which you connect...

    No Chill Cubes

    You must know that's a terrible analogy. A better one would be going 50.5 km/h in a 50 km/h zone, and MHB (if he can see the speedometer) knows the car is moving faster, while no one else can tell. Again, I'm not denying autolysis happens, or that you can make vegemite out of yeast if you want...

    No Chill Cubes

    Had a look at the attachment. There's no double-blind tastings under reasonable homebrewing conditions to draw conclusions from. It's just general descriptions of epitomised off flavours. Nothing new. Again, would definitely be interested in reading some actual tasting data with double-blind...

    No Chill Cubes

    I definitely agree that autolysis is a real thing, affected by a number of variables over time – temperature is probably number 1, with yeast strain and hydrostatic pressure there somewhere. It's definitely a theoretical risk in this process. However, the "off flavours from sitting on the...

    No Chill Cubes

    I use floating dip tubes, but others have had success trimming or bending it up ~15-30 mm.

    Stellar San and Star San

    Starsan isn't expensive, other than for the fact we live in Australia and you're paying for Starsan + retail markup + GST + customs + international shipping. Hence, Stellarsan isn't a cheaper inferior product. It's the same thing with fewer middlemen.

    No Chill Cubes

    Would thoroughly recommend doing the no-chill in the keg, fermenting in the keg and serving from the keg. You won't look back and wish you spent more time cleaning.

    KegLand Questions and Answers

    Their reasoning, as you reiterated, would make perfect sense, provided they didn't still sell 0-15 and 0-30 psi gauges. Selling the gauges separately has the same risks (for lack of a better word) as selling them with the regulator. To imply otherwise is asinine. Edit: Easy. You should open...

    KegLand Questions and Answers

    I get that you want to make things as simple as possible. But by consumer law, you also have to guarantee that the 0-15 and 0-30 psi gauges work “as is”. Installing such a gauge as directed by the supplier does not void these statutory rights. It also wouldn’t be classed as an aftermarket...

    KegLand Questions and Answers

    But the 0-15 and 0-30 psi gauges exist, so why aren't you worried about customers damaging those? Why do we have to buy a 0-60 psi gauge, which has NO use in homebrew? Ah **** it, just charge the extra $8 and keep the redundant gauge.

    KegLand Questions and Answers

    KL, is there any chance you could offer the Duotight Inline In Line Regulator with a choice of gauge? I know you can buy the gauges separately, but it just seems a bit wasteful to have to buy an extra gauge for each one, and toss a bunch of 0-60 psi gauges out, when they really aren't...

    KegLand Questions and Answers

    This is an excellent point. A lot of savings are lost if you have to buy a $30,000 endoscope to see if it's clean.

    KegLand Questions and Answers

    That sounds amazing, especially at $5. I’d want to ferment and serve so translucent would be preferable.

    Store grain it it. Should comfortably hold a 25 kg sack of the good stuff.
