    Simplifying the skeeter pee recipe

    Yeah I also saw this recipe but there are just too many ingredients. I wanna make mine with as few as possible and if possible only with stuff you can find in the super market. I'd love to clarify it but then I have to also have stabilisers and too much stuff... Hope it will be ok without...

    Simplifying the skeeter pee recipe

    Did you use wine finings or anything like that or just drink it unfiltered?

    Simplifying the skeeter pee recipe

    I made a small batch of this once before without any problems, only difference is i used a fermentation stopper and fining agents. This time I will make it even more simple and would love to hear any opinions on what I could do differently, keeping within my concept of minimal ingredients...

    50+ bottles of stinky fart water!

    Yeah I definitely won't be using this method again... Also sucks because I now have to empty all this fart water out somehow without stinking my flat out :/ Just wondering though... Doesn't there need to be some kind of contamination to start this growth of stinky bacteria? I usually filled...

    50+ bottles of stinky fart water!

    Over the last month or two I've been collecting plastic beer bottles to use for future batches. I filled them all with tap water after I drank the beer so that nothing could dry and stick to the inside of them as I don't have the equipment to clean very well.... Well I just opened a few to...

    Stopping Fermentation?

    I'm kind of confused, that is what I planned to do no? After it finishes, drop in a 4g packet of the sorbate which I linked to, then sweeten it. Maybe my title was misleading, I mean to stop it when it is almost stopped already, you know that period at the end where it barely bubbles. I just...

    Stopping Fermentation?

    I know it may not be ideal, but I am wondering how effective using only potasium sorbate (wine stabiliser) to stop a fermentation? Specifically on lemon wine/fruit wines? My plan is to brew a 20L batch to around 10% with wine yeast, then drop the 4g packet of sorbate in and sweeten in the bottle...

    Half batch

    Hmm, interesting point. I noticed my wines taste a bit... punchy when they are young, but never read anywhere anything about it. Maybe I'll drop it down a few % this time, is no way I will be able to handle waiting months to drink them :)

    Half batch

    How about in terms of flavour? Do you think 10% would be too much? It was my original plan but now I am looking around and I don't see any ciders that strong. This is actually more of a test batch. I am thinking to try several different sweetnesses, carbonating and anything else I think of...

    Half batch

    I want to make 10L cider in a 23L bucket using 10L of high quality supermarket juice without any unwanted preservatives and add around 800g white sugar to increase it to aproximately 10%ABV using wine yeast. Does this all sound like it would be fine? I am a bit worried about having too much...

    Strong beer/Ice beer

    Yeah this is the direction I think I am going towards, maybe brew something around 9% and then freeze reduce it until I get the desired taste/strength. Now just trying to decide what style of beer to go with...

    10% sugar juice produces 6% ABV?

    Just want to double check that this is right because I was expecting quite a bit lower. The juice I plan to use says it is 10g sugar per 100ml, I put this into a calculator and it came out at 6%! That is a lot! And I was planning to add extra table sugar to get it up to around that amount. Are...

    Strong beer/Ice beer

    Well I wouldn't need to get it perfect, couldn't I just for example freeze 2L of 7% alcohol beer, then let it drip into a 1L container to have roughly double the alcohol/flavour, minus a few % loss from the process? It'll probably have a big range somewhere between 10 and 13% but thats all fine...

    Strong beer/Ice beer

    So I am a massive fan of strong beers, especially Belgian style, I also tried a few ice beers lately (eg. Schneiderweisse Eisbock from Germany) which were also amazing and now I'm thinking what I could possibly do to make my own strong beer. Either by increasing sugar, decreasing water, freeze...

    Red wine still bubbling after 11 days

    Yes, it is this kit: http://www.wilko.com/wine-homebrew-kits/wilko-30-bottle-cabernet-sauvignon-wine/invt/0318378 Was expired by about a year but made a successful yeast starter so figured it would be fine. I also have 2 test batches of skeeter pee which are also still fizzing so this yeast...
