    Microbrewery semi auto canning machines

    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.

    Microbrewery semi auto canning machines

    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...

    Possible reasons why my beer went sour

    It were brand new plastic fermentors, cleaned with boiling water, later rinsed with StarSan. There couldn't be anything from before since they were new.

    Possible reasons why my beer went sour

    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.

    Possible reasons why my beer went sour

    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...

    Blueberry IPA

    So if I make like 22 litres of beer in 30 litre fermentor it should be fine right? Or install the blow off tube just in case?

    Blueberry IPA

    But it is possible to do it with fruit and not only juice? I just have to wait out for sugars from blueberries to ferment am I right?

    Blueberry IPA

    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...

    Blueberry IPA

    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?

    Beer with bacon?!

    Thank you for all your anwsers, you saved me from a mess big time! Hoe much vodka should I use so it wouldn't affect the alcohol percentage too much? Talking about 5 gallon batch.

    Beer with bacon?!

    Trying to connect things that I love, beer and bacon obviously. 1. What style of beer would be appropriate to be brewed with bacon (I was thinking porter/stout). 2. When to add bacon? During mash, boil or afterwards? And at what times (minutes)

    Foaming after opening the bottle

    So I'm usually making IPAs and give 2.2 units of sugar for carbonation. So after carbonation is done and I open my bottles there usually bubbles start to rise from bottom and in like a minute they fill the space thats not beer. Is this normal or should I add less sugar, since sometimes I open...

    Pellicle infected IPA to sour?

    Pellicle infected IPA to sour?

    By protect from oxygen you mean what? that the bucket is sealed tight and I have airlock on top? And if I leave it to become sour, even after few months I have to be careful abou bottle bombs? Sorry for all the questions it is just my first time that my beer got infected after like 25 batches or...
