    Lallemand Philly Sour yeast

    I couldn't find an existing thread in the yeast section, apologies if there is one... Anyone got experience with this? I brewed a 80% pils 20% sucrose test batch and threw 2 packs of philly sour on it at 25 degrees. After 6 days it's down to 1.010 and has a very nice tartness. Haven't tested...

    BeerSmith 3 boiloff

    i normally brew 120L batches but just did a 80L batch. My mash eff was bang on but my knock out OG was under and volume over. I checked BS and the boil off is a fixed volume for the equipment rather than a percentage. How do people account for this? Setup another equipment profile or is there...

    FS Newcastle - 120-160L electric 3v herms

    Currently boiling a batch of sorghum extract, will add a little bit of honey at the end but want to make it as simple as possible and build on it from there. I would like to keg it and serve on tap but I am not sure if I would need to replace lines for that tap or not. It would depend on the...

    Bulk Buy App

    instead of using a spreadsheet would there be any interest in a bulk buy app? I’m thinking some initial features: - post up a bulk buy in the app and it gives a B.B. id - post the Id on the forum, people then register interest through the app - as details and pricing emerge participants are...

    Capturing chilling water and reusing

    Surprisingly I couldn't find much from a search... I regularly "no chill" without issue but am finding the need to chill some times for various reasons. I hate wasting 300L+ of water to chill 100L of wort, does anyone reclaim the chilling water for use in cleaning or even brewing etc? My garden...

    Kegbot (flow meter and digital taplist) project

    I got tired of kegs kicking at inconvenient times, I had some arduinos laying around and I am a bit of a nerd so thought I would make a kegbot system. It is a small server running on either a raspberry pi, linux machine or a tablet. An arduino board connects to the server and the flow meters...

    Well I am pretty stoked with the BrewPiLess fermentation controller on the D1 mini. I was tinkering with the craftbeerpi controller on a RPi I have and thought I'd do a quick search for Arduino controllers. I am aware of Laels/Mathos/Brauduino controllers but understand they do not have wifi...

    Large scale equipment (500L +)

    I got an introduction to a bloke who has access to ex lab/dairy equipment. I am looking for someone who may have experience piecing something together or someone who has a clue what this stuff is as I don't. Also I can get an old simons boiler for free, needs a fair bit of work. Anyone know...

    No Chill Helles - Top up water?

    I did a no chill Helles as a concentrated no chill (I only have 15L cubes). I will need to top it up with water prior to pitching, I am assuming tap water would be risky or may introduce flavours unwanted in a clean beer. Should I use bottled water?
