    Long water storage whith starsan

    I have unlimited access to 20lt cubes. I was wondering if rinsing then with star San prior to filling with water to store long term would be viable? The containers are all food grade just wondering if from a survivalist viewpoint if this would work.

    Euacalyptus leaves in beer

    WHen ever I start my boil I inevitably have eucalyptus (gum trees) leave on the bottom of my BK. The combination of the leaves burning and the malt is incredible. I get a great mix of the eucalyptus and the steam from the boiling wort and it seems like it would taste great in the beer. Anyone...

    WLP830 for OS Coopers Lager

    I'm a relatively new brewer (9 months) I've done 40 plus extract batches. Most of them have been OS coopers and I like them. Now that it's cold here I've been doing coop lagers using their yeast, which at the beginning I thought would be suited to the cold ( 10-15c). As it turns out they just...
