    Calcium carbonate

    None. There is a much more complicated answer but basically chalk has no place outside the classroom in my opinion. What are you trying to do?

    Help needed: esky mash tun

    I’ve had my esky tun for a few years, the previous was made the same way (and was only replaced because mr stupid had a spac out and threw a shifter at it after failing to fix a leaking keg). Really is quite simple- all thread through the aperture (drill slightly smaller than the thread)...

    Frothy Cider?

    Foam head on pouring isn't super unusual but it would be unusual for it to remain. If your friend can remember what the cider was, I can try and find out for you but it won't be till early Feb. A guy closely involved with the cider making process at WS trains at my kung fu school and he's quite...

    Long term storage + ideal brew

    Longest for me is about 2 years bulk age and maybe another 12 months in the bottle. Similar recipe 12 months bulk age and 2 years in the bottle - both lovely. Never used external storage. Beer will really need cold storage whereas wine can deal with cool. Beer does degrade due to certain...

    Curious - I may be making a negative alcohol brew

    Numbers dropping inversely correlates with alcohol production* so going below the 'beer finish' zone means your beer is attenuating well (or has an infection - fingers crossed that's not it). How does the sample (not the main fermenter) smell and taste? *Not technically but gravity dropping...

    Hi there downunder from Germany!

    Thanks Warra. Was hoping to start at zum uriege and see where that takes us. Spending 3 nights in wuppertal too so hoping the beer there isn't too distant since they're geographic relatives* *Dusseldorf and Wuppertal
