  • I brew beer on my partners farm in an old dairy which I am converting to a micro brewery. My farmer bloke grows Maris Otter so if you buy MO malt from Warminster it might be his (enough for 2 million pints). The old dairy will be a fermentation unit for wine and beer for friends and family to play in and maybe one day I will sell beer at the farmers market. I'm getting hooked on all grain brews and experimenting with different malts and I want to learn wine. I use old dairy tanks and chiller units, made some nice beer but its not ideal yet.

  • I did 6 AG mini mashes (1 Gallon each) in my kitchen a year ago, they were all a disaster but I loved the process, it smelt so amazing. Now I am doing 30gallon AG brews in an old tank with an immersion boiler (from a domestic heating system), works a treat.
    Recently made Bitter, then Golden Ale, doing a Porter this week then I want to do a lager, a wheat beer and a bock. I'm not too sure what the bock is all about but my friend made some and it was incredible.
  • I want to try porters and get my set up easier to use. At them moment I'm exhausted at the end of the day. Need more pumps and a vacuum cleaner for removing the spent grain from the tank. Arms hurt.
  • 150L of a light ale, 30Kilos of Maris Otter with 1kg of Crystal, 300g of Goldings at 60mins and 320g of Styrian Goldings at 15 mins
  • 90L of what I've called Winchester Ale (20kg pale + 1 kg crystal, low hops as a friend dont like too many hops)
  • 60 bottles of a light, medium bodied, hoppy ale
  • nothing, I just bought a stainless 'pin' and Im waiting for delivery

  • Posted in thread: Quality of the grind from online HBS on 12-09-2008 at 11:09 PM
    I just got my first online order from MoreBeer and I am disappointed to say the least with the
    grind. To me, it looks like between 1/3 and 1/2 the kernels are still whole. I've always used
    my LHBS, bu...

    2-row would give you more options. If you predominantly make English style beers I'd go with
    the Maris Otter for sure.You guys have a different language to me! That pond! Maris Otter IS a

    Maris Otter is the one that most UK micro brewerys desire, its winter sown and has the right
    nitrogen and protein levels (or somethign like that). I think its a reliable germinator and the
    maltsters l...

    That was the driving point behind the two articles that I wrote about efficiency: to raise
    awareness that there are 2 major processes at work. Which are both mostly independent and which
    can even be m...

    Orfy,I'm using the same incalloy heater in a 150L stainless tank (your using a stainless

    We have 20 litres (4Gallons? but your Gallons are different to ours) kettles/tea urns in the UK
    called Burcos, both electric and gas run. They are used quite a lot in homebrews and I think
    there are s...

    How are you going to teach anything while you are trying like hell to get out an AG brew in 2
    hours? If you had a fully automated system, it may work... but if you have your hands in it at
    all it seem...
