    ABOUT ME

  • Dublin, Ireland
  • I'm Graeme and I'm from Dublin, Ireland

    I'm a beer enthusiast, have been for a number of years now. I think the moment I saw the light was when I discovered what an IPA was on a trip to Chicago with my brother. Since then I have become a lover of many, many beer styles, but the big hoppy American beer's appeal to me most.

    I have been homebrewing for nearly a year now, a hobby which I find very fulfilling on so many levels, I love to brew, and am always eager to learn and find out anything can can help me brew better beer.

    Hey folks,Just an update on this. Still hasn't appeared to clear...it's certainly allot clearer
    than it was but quite cloudy. The oranges have dropped out to the bottom too.When I said I was

    By changing the yeast you changed what you can expect from this mead. It might still turn out
    fine but you may need to let it sit for another month or two to get it to clear. D47 will
    impart a citrus ...

    Thanks for the advice. I'm in no great rush to bottle it, just surprised that it has not
    clarified some what. Well, I suppose it has a little but it's still very cloudy

    Hi there.beer brewer here who tried his hand at making a simple mead a while back! I figured
    Joe's ancient orange mead was a good place start. I made this just over two months ago and it's
    still very ...

    Hi Folks,I just have some questions about an upcoming batch of export stout I am brewing. I am
    using US-04. This is a 20 liter batch (8 US gallons) with an OG of 1.075. For the most part I
    use liquid ...

  • Posted in thread: Advice on adjusting your pre boil volume for lengthy boils on 08-08-2012 at 09:41 PM
    I have been curious about this since I started brewing bigger batches and using a new boiler
    which has a substantially higher boil off rate than my previous one. Is there anything you need
    to be caref...

    The issue really is that we need a new mash tun regardless. I have a large boiler which we
    really need to utilise. So 30L batches is about where we want to be going forward. A 66L mash
    tun is probably...

  • Posted in thread: Large mash tun and heat loss on 07-07-2012 at 04:40 PM
    Thanks for your replies guys, they are much appreciated. It's basic science that a large mash
    tun like this would suffer heat loss when half full I guess. The problem is my home brew store
    doesn't rea...

    Bump. Any help would be greatly appreciated guys!

  • Posted in thread: Large mash tun and heat loss on 07-03-2012 at 07:03 PM
    I use a 152 qt. cooler for large high OG batches, but still use my 48 qt. for smaller batches.
    I think that's the best way to go.Prob is, my current mash tun is a little small and we need to
    up it any...
