  • Posted in thread: Bottling beer in a clear glass on 01-12-2017 at 09:45 AM
    As long as it's kept out of direct sunlight/in the dark there won't be any disadvantage to
    bottling in clear, colourless, glass bottles. Quite often use clear, colourless, bottles myself
    as it is enjo...

    9.9% ABV is quite respectable for an imperial stout, isn't it? If as you stated, in your
    original post, "We tasted the beer a week after and it was delicious." why not just go with a
    great tasting bee...

  • Posted in thread: Kegged first porter today, tastes a bit like plastic. Normal? on 01-12-2017 at 02:21 AM
    With the amount of chocolate and roast malts in that grist I'd have thought that a slightly
    burnt taste would be expected and you'd need a decent amount of conditioning time for the
    flavours to meld a...

    My plastic fermenter (fermonster) has a spigot on it at the bottom. When I wrapped my blanket
    around it to keep it warm, it must have become stuck in and around the spigot, leaving whatever
    was on the...

    I would Use the unlabeled for bittering and the centennial/simcoe for late additions.+1.If you
    have a reasonable idea of the AA% of those unlabeled hops.

  • Posted in thread: What came in the mail for you today? on 01-07-2017 at 06:17 AM
    Well it was in fact yesterday but, I got a nice little package of brewing supplies through the
    post;4kg Maris Otter, 1kg crystal C-75, 1pack Wyeast London ale 1028, 1 pack each of
    Nottingham, Windsor,...

    Advanced brewing and sakeland are both pretty good. If you want to give some business to a
    great guy, a fellow foreigner/brewer who's started his own brewing supplies business then have
    a look at the ...

    I suppose I must be just too used to seeing pics of peoples' carbuoys filled closer to the
    transition and using blow off tubes. :tank: That and hating to see all that space being unused
    when some more...

    Also, I wanted to take a pic to show how far off I was from the 5 gallon mark. I wrote the
