  • Posted in thread: What is the minimum equipment needed to start all-grain brewing? on 12-04-2014 at 02:06 AM
    If you want go the minimum equipment route go BIAB. My first all grain was small batch stovetop
    BIAB with my boil pot and grain bag that I already used for partial mash batches so I did it
    without any...

  • Posted in thread: Anyone haerd of these new Yeasts from Mangrove Jack's (New Zealand) on 12-04-2014 at 01:37 AM
    I don't think you would have shocked the yeast by chilling from 20C down to 12C as it probably
    would have taken a few hours for the temp to drop. But the dropping temp would have slowed the
    yeast mult...

  • Posted in thread: Cloudy ale - due to slow cooling? on 11-27-2014 at 02:31 AM
    Do you use any kettle fining agent - e.g. Whirlfloc, Koppafloc, Irish Moss? I use Koppafloc and
    find that it really helps with clarity.

  • Posted in thread: Help! Mash tun drops 10 degrees! on 11-27-2014 at 02:25 AM
    Some background info - It is a very small, 6 quart rectangular cooler with a spigot. Since it's
    small and you have a small mash volume it won't hold the heat as well as a larger mass would.
    Mashing in...

  • Posted in thread: I have too much pilsner! on 11-19-2014 at 09:36 PM
    I have a lot of pilsner malt laying around, and besides a wide variety of specialty grains,
    that's the only base grain I have. I've brewed some Germans Pils and American Pils lately, but
    am looking to...

  • Posted in thread: Close to bottling. Did I mess up? on 11-19-2014 at 08:33 PM
    Alright so, I'm a week away from bottling and I'm a little concerned in the looks of the beer
    so far. Before brewing I searched on here and I talked to a local brew store owner. He told me
    to keep in ...

    If you have come up short in the amount of water in your batch there is absolutely nothing
    wrong with topping up with sanitised water in the fermenter to get the beer that you originally
    intended to b...

  • Posted in thread: I think I may have screwed up my first ever batch on 11-19-2014 at 02:01 AM
    Aidan, looks like a nice recipe. I've used the Motueka a couple of times and really enjoyed it.
    I may have to do an all-NZ IPA and play around with some of those. I'm curious, how did the MJ
    West Coas...

    Hey, aidan. Not to hijack the thread or anything ... but I've been trying to find a clone for
    Montieth's Summer Ale to make for my brother-in-law. He loves the stuff. Any tips? Also trying
    to get some...
