  1. Gelatin Fining

    One of my biggest issues with my brew was that I never got the clarity that I wanted. My beers tended to be on the line between hazy and cloudy.

    So, after hearing the Brulosophy episode about gelatin fining, I read the article but I did not follow the steps, so the results were not very impressive.

    So I tried it again, following the steps that I listed below. The results were a beer that was clear to brilliant! I was very very impressed.

    For the past few years Brewdog has released a list of all of their recipes. You can download the latest version here:

      1. Your mileage may vary, as this depends on the amount of liquid that your beer-line holds.
  5. Rehydrating dry yeast (dry yeast starter)

    What you will need:
    • One or more packets of dry yeast
    • Filtered water (Not RO or Distilled!)
    • Microwave oven
    • 250 ml mason jar (aka Consol jar) with lid and ring
    • Heat resistant gloves or a cloth
    • A shallow bowl or plate
    • 2 hands or an assistant
