Problem is that I'm from Slovenia where craft scene is in evolving stage and there are no options that someone else would package my product.
Also we divided our budget like that, that we can afford our own packaging line.
So basically we are starting a microbrewery in Europe, which will produce around 5000 litres of beer per month or around 1320 gallons.
So my question is it possible to go cans on such a small scale or bottling is the only option?
I have an offer for semi auto bottling machine which costs...
No sugar added both should be at around 6% alcohol. I'd take wild yeast infection but it just seems weird that it would happen in 2 of my fermentors out of 8 that were filled at the time and on the two that weren't opened since pitching yeast since all others were dry hopped.
So I've been making double batch in a day, one BIAB and one on Grainfather both about 7 - 8 litres. One was Amber Ale and the other Saison. Everything went fine and I splitted a packet of Safale US-05. Yeast was pitched at 25°C and fermentation was 18 - 21°C. Both weren't opened since there is...
So I'm planning like this:
1. Make delicious IPA
2. Let it ferment for like 7 days
3. Buy frozen blueberries, thaw them, then freeze them and again thaw before going in fermentor.
4. Rack the beer onto the blueberries in secondary.
5. Wait for 2-3 weeks then bottle.
Should it work like this...
So I've got this IPA recipe I want to try and I want to add blueberries for color and flavor.
So my question is when should I add them?
While boiling in hop bag?
Dip them in vodka and when racking beer to secondary?
Or just both?
Also I'd like to know what's the procedure for vodka sanitizing...
