Posted in thread: Rinsing Sodium Percarbonate? on 12-02-2013 at 04:38 AM
I agree 100%. I'd never switch back to sodium percarbonate or the like. Now a spray bottle
filled with star san, I think you might be on to something here. Brilliant.

This was a while ago but as far as I recall I think it turned out fine. Wasn't my best brew for
other reasons but I don't think it became infected due to not rinsing the percarbonate. I use
star san n...

1 lb of chocolate seems to be a hell of a lot in a brown ale. What was the predicted SRM/EBC of
this one? Was that a typo because I reckon that would bring it out closer to a stout or porter.

How was the Fuggles at 15 mins? I've got the same in a recipe I'm working on at the moment
(using EK Goldings), just not sure if it would end up being too hoppy being that late in the

I would be more inclined to leave the frozen berries in secondary for almost 2 weeks to really

Hi all, I did a brew yesterday and was going to do up a yeast starter to pitch the next day (I
realise this is the wrong way round), but then found out I have no DME at present.Can I just
bring out so...

I've had a go at doing a cider and it turned fairly bad as I stuffed up the back sweetening

turned out awfu...
Posted in thread: Boiling wort to sanitize fermenting vessel? on 09-13-2013 at 04:35 PM
I did a brew tonight with a mate and we each took half the load in each of our fermenters but
didn't sanitize them first. They were clean, just not starsan clean. The reasoning was that the

How long did it take for the nail polish after taste to disappear? I think I've had a similar
problem. SG 1.064, bottled at 1.013. Added some caramel syrup and concentrate to sweeten but it

And kdog, perhaps I used the wrong term but I'm just following upstate mikes recipe. So I'll be
adding concentrate and caramel sauce to bottling bucket and stovetop pasteurising after a few
days. So i...
