    Foaming Mash

    @Sam_92 Surely not foam though? I'm not sure that the reaction makes any gas either. Perhaps the bubbles are from gas between the particles of the campden tablets, although I crush mine before use.

    How much pressure can fermentation build up?

    @Brooothru I had a " beercano " early in my dry hopping pressure attempts and agree doesn't really seem much point working under pressure and then releasing it. I also only dry hop when necessary and most of my beers don't require it. But when needed I do the bag thing, however the various "...

    Foaming Mash

    I wouldn't worry it's probably air that is in some of the rolled oats coming out. Try a tablespoon of oats in a cup and pour some boiling or near boiling water on and I expect you'll see some bubbles. Just brew on.

    Cans collapse why?

    Have you used this when you work out your priming? https://www.brewersfriend.com/beer-priming-calculator/ Also dissolve any priming sugar in a little boiled water and then put doses of liquid in each bottle, that way it's all dissolved and accurate. The other thing to watch for is missing a...

But you won't regret the cautious approaches described above just going thru the skin and poking around, I used an...

    How much pressure can fermentation build up?

    You are experiencing the warm carbed bottle of beer being opened. When pressure fermenting there is a lot more gas in the beer, when you release the pressure it wants to normalise. Hence it foams up like a warm bottle of beer being opened. This as you know is messy. My experience and the video...

    Robobrew/Brewzilla Discussion

    @priorm I have noticed the insulation as well. Its not in my 3.0 or in the Guten 70. I suspect its some ceramic and hence fireproof material. Probably a bit like loft insulation wool. Seems like a very good idea, old lagging jackets for hot water had loft insulation in. Might be worth talking...

    Robobrew/Brewzilla Discussion

    @Sidman Re smart pid in brewzilla 65 I have just installed smartpid in my Guten 70 which is basically the same as Brewzilla 65. As @RePete says and I mention above, pump at full speed, using a teastrainer on the top of the overflow pipe no top screen and stir a bit, you get soak through...

    @bracconiere Your life is saved, It's for tightening the nut that attaches a beer tap to the shank. The end of the hook goes in the hole on the collar ( nut) that is on the shank.
