    Pitching Via The Trub Dump

    Any reason why I could not pitch a yeast starter into the FV via a mason/ball jar which is the trub dump? Space it tight in the FV fridge and the conical weighs 50KG so lifting it out is an issue. I’ve made a starter (which is unlike me) with 3 packs of M44 in a jar which I can screw to the...

    How To Sour A Brewferm Kriek.

    I'd like to make my better half a cherry sour and the most simple way I can see is to use a kit. The idea is (an expensive one) is to buy 2 of the Kriek kits and add candy sugar and a sour yeast. Like to get this right due to the cost.

    San Francisco Area

    Ok, I won’t bore you in the detail I’m at the start of a impromptu 5 days in the bay area. Got a visit to Alcatraz, a MBA game, a few pints at the hop granade (looking forward to that) and the 21st amendment. Going to drive across the golden gate and go see the red wood forest. Any other...

    Pellets in a dry hopper.

    Is the mesh fine enough for pellets? I normally drop one with full of leaf into the keg but I find pellets are just easier to use/store generally.

    Has anybody used one of these budget DO meters? They seem to have plummeted in price over the past few years.
