    Basement Bar Build Thread!

    That's the stuff dreams are made out of, outstanding! I'm planning a conversion myself but it won't be for a couple of years, I'll definitely be using this as inspiration.

    Blonde Ale Squeeze My Lemon Summer Blonde

    I tired this, and it was a total let down :(! The lemon must make a huge difference, mine tasted like nothing, like fizzy water with a hint of bitterness. To fix it, I took the rind of 3 grapefruits and soaked them in 100ml of vodka for 4 days. I then added that to the keg, it really lifted...

    Blonde Ale Squeeze My Lemon Summer Blonde

    I brewed this up, SG 1.041, FG 1.010. I opted for Lemondrop hops, with a 34 gram dry hop. I decided not to put any lemon peel in and just brew the base recipe as is. I kegged it on Saturday and fined with gelatin, had it sitting at 30PSI until Sunday night. I've dropped it down to 13psi and...

    Canning process

    Sorry to dig up an old thread but I was thinking about this and the process... So you basically need a motor to spin the can, then you need the sealer to crimp the lid. The motor could be a drill, or a similar electric motor, as it's for homebrew purpose then speed wouldn't be a major...

    Show off your fermentation chambers

    A simple fridge with an Inkbird-308 and heatbelt. It might not look like much but I'm absolutely delighted to finally have it (many hard fought battles with SWMBO :D ) I also found a use for my old belt, doing a fine job keeping the temp probe in place!

    Show off your fermentation chambers

    I've finally gotten permission from the boss (gf) to buy a fridge for fermenting! This thread is exactly what I need to see for inspiration!

    Grainfather!!

    Ok, so I brewed my Black IPA on Friday and let me just say it was a disaster! I decided to try a no sparge, but I won't be trying this again as no sparge just isn't an option....my efficiency was only 55%, I was supposed to have a SG of 1.063, in fact it was only 1.045. So next test will be to...

    Grainfather!!

    Yeah I'm going to treat the water but I've also decided to sparge with only 3 litres of water...I'll see how things go, it'll be worth a shot anyway!

    Grainfather!!

    I have my trusty thermapen, so I've been keeping my sparge water to aroung 74-75 c. But could it be the case that we are over sparging with the Grainfather, some people are sparging anywhere from 20-40 minutes...efficiency is through the roof, but at what cost? I'm brewing a Black IPA...

    Grainfather!!

    Hey folks, here's a rant with a question at the end :) I'm a Grainfather owner, have 20+ batches under my belt with it, but lately it's pissing me off! All my beers of late are turning out astringent, they are practically undrinkable and I'm determined to figure out why this is happening. I've...

    Taplist App - WIP

    Thanks for the feedback folks :) The plan is, that all the text will be editable, also the image on the tap. IBU and SRM icons will change depending on bitterness / colour selection. I have some more screenshots of the inner workings, so the 'Details' pop up and the 'information input' page...

    Taplist App - WIP

    Hey guys, I'm currently working on a tap list app for tablets. I'm a graphic designer and not a developer, was wondering if anyone was interested in collaborating. Here's a screenshot of the work in progress If there's more than 4 taps you can swipe left to display the next set...

    British Brown Ale Nut Brown AG

    One week in the keg tomorrow....oh my, this is everything I wanted from a Nut Brown, nutty, chocolatey and smooth...I know it's going to be better in a few weeks but I can't keep my hands off it. Sorry for the heavily filtered photo, took it from my instagram :)
