    What are you drinking now?

    Here’s my HB mosaic smash, done as an ipa with golden promise.

    So who's brewing this weekend?

    Woke up this morning, milled the grains and started on a sour milk stout with raspberries and chocolate. Fermenting with voss and the airlock is already happily chugging away.

    what grain did you use for your smash? I just tried the mosaic smash ipa I brewed two weeks ago. I based it off of one I tried from a local brewery that I really enjoyed. Mosaic with golden promise and I used voss kveik for yeast. pretty happy with how it turned out.

    1-Gallon Brewers UNITE!

    I bought a smaller immersion chiller meant for 1-3 gallon batches. Works great! https://www.amazon.ca/gp/product/B073V3GTN7/

    What are you drinking now?

    First pour from hb helles. Was a warm ferment and only 2 weeks since brew day so it still has some clarifying to do in the keg, but it's tasty!

    Help with a Munich Dunkel

    I was really pleased with how mine turned out. I used munich(91%), vienna(5%), and chocolate(4%). I warm fermented with saflager 34/70. If you are looking to use ale yeast because you can't get to lager fermentation temps I would suggest going this route instead!

    BlowTie spunding valve help needed, please

    I just got mine on Monday. Did a couple tests and there was a small leak. Did a submerge test (kept the gauge above water, twisted and turned to make sure all other points were tested), found a couple very tiny leaks that reseating the evabarrier fixed and it has been holding 7.5psi on a 200ml...

    Czech Pilsner - Amarillo dry hop?

    That really sounds like your best idea! You get to taste the original recipe but you can still try the variant you want without risking messing up a good portion of the brew! Please be sure to report back with how it turned out!

    BlowTie spunding valve help needed, please

    Easiest way to check for leaks when not attached to vessel is to submerge all connection points (While under pressure) in water and watch for bubbles. Thats how I tested my gas run. first submerged my manifold And confirmed no bubbles from any connections (even the tiniest little bubble forming...

    I didn't use a hop sock .... is this ruined beer? ?

    Looks like hop scum. If it doesn't have a nasty smell you should be fine to give it a taste and see how it is

    What came in the mail for you today?

    Enjoying a glass of it now. Great color, citra comes through on the nose and in the taste but low bitterness so super drinkable (hop additions were only whirlpool and dry hop).
