Posted in thread: Dark Chocolate Stout on 07-08-2015 at 01:16 AM
Put a batch of this down on Canada Day. I did the Young's version (more lactose, less IBU's).
This is my second attempt at this recipe. I messed something up the last time I made this and
got an infec...
Posted in thread: How long do you let your beer sit after you bottle? on 07-08-2015 at 12:46 AM
Usually around 3 weeks and then stick some in the fridge for 5 days or so. If those are all
right then it is open season on the batch other wise I'll wait a few more weeks before putting
some more in ...
Posted in thread: Boil size in a 3g pot? on 07-08-2015 at 12:34 AM
Using a 19 litre pot I've made 14 - 15 litre all grain batches with no post boil dilution. The
pre-boil volume was around (maybe over) 18 litres. This was done on an electric stove that
struggled to g...

I just brewed a batch of BarleyWater's Dark Chocolate Stout. I subbed hops I found growing

Nottingham) of ...
Posted in thread: Do you strain or dump your wort into fermentor? on 06-22-2015 at 01:05 AM

process so I'l...

20 litres of a modified BierMuncher's Centennial Blonde.Munich instead of Vienna (LHBS was out
of Vienna)All hop additions were subbed with cluster hops(as far as I can tell) I found growing
Posted in thread: how do you save money... and what's your per bottle price? on 06-14-2015 at 02:34 AM
I found some hops growing wild in my area. I think they are cluster hops but I'm not really
sure. After picking/drying I use these as the bittering addition in some of my batches and the
beer turns ou...
Posted in thread: So who's brewing this weekend? on 06-14-2015 at 02:19 AM
Brew night was last night. 20 litres of BierMuncher's Centennial Blonde with 2 modifications.
LHBS didn't have any Vienna so I subbed Munich. Subbed all hop additions with wild cluster(?)
hops I picke...
Posted in thread: Do you consider blow-off tubes essential? on 05-28-2015 at 11:16 AM
Are the markings on the side of those cooper's fermenters accurate? When I use those to do a
19L batch, I find the beer tastes watered down.I've always assumed they were. Cooper's sell
quite a lot of ...
