    Question About Iodophor

    Hey guys I was wanting to know if any of you guys can tell me if the Iodophor you use for sanitizing your homebrew equipment contains any phosphoric acid?. The reason I ask this is because the only place I can get Iodophor is from a farm supply store (but I do know a farmer that uses it), it is...

    Recipe opinion

    The beer got bottled four days ago after being in fermenter for 9 days (it measured 1012 over three consecutive days. Had a taste while bottling and it tasted great and has now cleared nicely. the beer is taking a bit longer than my first brew to carb up apart from the last bottle that was taken...

    Recipe opinion

    I guess with being a first time brewer and this is only my second batch of beer I like to check it's progress in which the novelty will soon wear off and I will start leavin things alone. I haven't been taking beer from the top as I have a tap on my fermenter so there is no need to remove the...

    Strong Ale has been in primary fermentation for a week and it's still bubbling

    I made that mistake the other week with my very first brew I relied on the airlock because that is what the brew kit instruction book told me (that book has now been filed in the garbage can) causing me to bottle way too early and dI am lucky to not have any split PET bottles. I now only go by...

    Recipe opinion

    Thought I would post a bit of an update it is now day three into the brewing of this batch did a hydrometer test and it was reading 1021 so it is fermenting rather happily at 20-21C couldn't resist the taste test of the sample (well it had to go somewhere apart from the sink) had a nice flavour...

    Recipe opinion

    yes you guessed right the kit already contains the hops so there was no need to add hops however I can get unhopped malt from the brew suppliers but have to travel 1 hour or more just to get it. Golden syrup is a pale treacle which is the by product of sugar processing...

    Recipe opinion

    That is fine for you to say that I did after all ask for an opinion. Extracts are easier for me at present as I am still learning about brewing and do not feel ready to go for brewing with grain and hops etc. I want to get my confidence in brewing up by adding bits and pieces to an already...

    Recipe opinion

    I have just put my second brew into the fermenter and this time round I did things differently instead of trying to add the kit into the fermenter with 2 liters of boiling water and the 2lb of dextrose then stirring it all in I decided to try doing it all on the stove in my big stewing pot and...

    Cloudy Beer at bottling

    Thanks for the info guys as for the bottles they are the PET (plastic ones) it is hard to get glass bottles over here from the brew shops unless you have drank alot of beer and stored the bottles (which I didn't I recycled them a long time ago). From what I have read on these forums so far is...

    Cloudy Beer at bottling

    My very first brew has just been bottled. I used the coopers Lager brew kit what I was wanting to know is it typical for the beer to be still cloudy after the initial fermentation?. It is going to be doing its second ferment in the bottles as per the guide lines in the instruction sheet. The...
