    Chemical off taste

    In 3 brews & one was just a simple can. It sounds to me like a wild yeast infection, but it is really just speculation, as peoples descriptions of the same off flavour can & do vary considerably. Even something that looks glaringly wrong in the process, is still going to be speculation without...

    Chemical off taste

    Tim, impossible really for anyone to advise from an online description, other than pure speculation. If you have a decent local homebrew store or are a member of a brewclub, take a sample for them to try & advise. We'll happily help you down at CraftBrewer, or if the hours don't suit, pop into...

    Dodgy email supposedly from CraftBrewer - beware

    Our old site was hacked & passwords compromised. Every customer was emailed & warned plus we had a permanent warning in large red text on the front page of our website. With the new website & platform, we did not migrate any customers over, to make sure there was a completely fresh start. We...

    KegLand Questions and Answers

    For good pouring, you do not want the diameter of your flow path increasing from keg to tap, as it will likely result in Cavitation & foaming. You want consistent diameter or narrowing towards the tap for the best pour.

    Brewers - We have our new site about to go live. We wanted to do a bit more testing before going live, but continued problems with the old antiquated site have forced our hand to go live early. It's been a nightmare couple of years for us since the ransomware attack on our site. We lost all our...

    How do people fill their 19L Asahi commercial kegs?

    I have no issues with one way pet kegs being re purposed. I was referring to the opening post where the brewer had obtained 19L Ashai kegs. These are owned by the brewery & keeping them is theft, pure & simple

    Thinking of ditching hop socks

    I doubt using the hop spider or not would have made any appreciable difference. The question is, how aromatic were the home grown hops in the first place, what variety were they & how much lupulin did they contain? You'll only get out what you put in...

    How do people fill their 19L Asahi commercial kegs?

    Citraman1 & others - Probably won't be popular advice on here, but how about you stop using kegs that are not legally yours & buy your own cornys. Seriously, you can buy a second-hand corny for less money than an S type coupler & not have any of the dramas regarding cleaning them etc...

    Beerkat - Kegs & Growlers

    Well sorry, that isn't quite true - you didn't call us. We are Bacchus Brewing Co & we have never filled S/S growlers, our licensing set-up doesn't currently allow it (though we are working on it). It's hard enough already with people turning up & being dissapointed when we won't fill, it...

    Beerkat - Kegs & Growlers

    Unfortunately it doesn't look like they've asked the venues if they'll fill them. So I'd advise checking first to avoid disappointment.

    I doubt it's low ph. I'd be looking for another cause, as you don't want it repeating in the...

    I doubt it's low ph. I'd be looking for another cause, as you don't want it repeating in the next brew.

    S-189 finally being rolled out in 11.5g packs

    Bribie, 12c is the idea temp for this yeast, if you drop below 9c it's likely to stall.

    Craftbrewer Stock Update: Mashmaster Mill Hoppers

    Apologies Dan, we are checking every box now to make sure it doesn't happen again. Nuts & bolts are all sealed in 1 packet, so an error from the manufacturer.
