Without wanting to sound dismissive (I'm taking the advice on-board) could somebody maybe give some pros as to why electricity is superior to gas? :confused:

As far as I can tell, electricity...

Propane burner advice wanted: cast iron vs. sheet steel vs. bricks?

Hi all,
I'm planning on making the 'jump' from stove to a propane burner. My issue is that in the UK we don't seem to have a "go to" burner that you can just order off Amazon so I was hoping for...

Brew in a bag.
And a propane burner is definitely on my shopping list since reaching boil on a stove takes most of my day at the moment.

I've not tried it myself but on Basic Brewing they were...

Just to check, you're using your own equipment profile, right?

Does anyone know any research about HSA? I get paranoid about it, yet it kind of seems like one of those things that somebody just proposed 'might' be an issue without ever actually proving it.

Thanks for the comments, I'll up the strawberries to 3-4 pounds.

I was also considering downing the IBUs to 17 or less, since I've noticed in other recipes that Belgian wheats seem to be even...

Recipe check: Strawberry Wheatbeer

Hi all. :)

Trying to come up with a drink that I can give to my non-beer-drinking friends (sadly, most of them) and was wondering if someone can give this a once-over since I'm still quite new to...

Obtaining a large bag and stirring grains in 25L of water aren't hard, but yes i'll admit you still need to invest in a decently sized pot for all-grain whatever method you use.

That's all it takes (well, 60 minutes instead of 30, ideally). I was going to a partial mash with this method, then after plugging the numbers in some brewing software, ended-up skipping straight to...

Using an S airlock instead of the cylindrical ones should prevent that happening. I'm sure the beer's fine though. Sucking a little oxygen into the headspace won't destroy the batch, and people have...
