    Tap tower cooling with air?

    I solved this with a aquarium pump I had. Just dropped it into 5 liter container with glycol solution. Completely silent!!

    Tap tower cooling with air?

    That would defeat much of the purpose of my beautiful tap tower. It's made from porcelain and beautifully painted.

    Tap tower cooling with air?

    So no insulation in the tower? Doesn't it warm up the keezer a lot?

    Tap tower cooling with air?

    I've built myself a keezer with an old porcelain tap tower. It had a copper pipe cooling circuit, in which I pumped regular water from a 5 liter keg. This cools the beer alright. BUT! I can't stand the constant noise from the pump. Is pumping air through this circuit effective enough? Or remove...

    American Amber Ale Caramel Amber Ale

    Ah, now things made sense. The beer fermented to a FG of 1.008.

    Pistonhead Haze Lager

    Yeah I saw that site too, but it doesn't really explain what 2,1% means in terms of flavor impact on the beer. Well, it kind of does: it says that sugars doesn't necessarily tastes sweet.

    Pistonhead Haze Lager

    Not a fan of lager, but I like this one and thinking about giving it a go. Recipe seem pretty straight forward: Pilsner and Cara to hit the color. Bittering with Magnum at 60, aroma and flavor with Galaxy at 30 and 15. Some at flameout too? Have slurry from Mangrove Jack´s Bavarian Lager yeast...

    Blue Moon Clone

    I´m giving a Blue Moon clone a go today. I have both Danstar Nottingham and Kveik in stock. Never tried Kveik before and I´m very curious if this yeast would add some nice citrus tones to the beer or if this will be a of-taste. What do you guys think?

    London ESB finished high, pitch Nottingham?

    I don´t think it´s just an opinion. Lallemand says: LalBrew® London English-Style Ale Yeast | Lallemand Brewing

    London ESB finished high, pitch Nottingham?

    This is what is said about this yeast and Windsor. Here is one such thread: Lallemand London ESB FG at 1.036? I used a refractometer, and a site to calculate compensated value.
