It's not the size of your equipment; it is what you brew with it.

Thirsty days hath September,
April, June and November;
All the rest are thirsty too
Except for him who hath homebrew.

Cleaning Dispensing Equipment

by AtronSeige on 6th September 2017 at 17:34
Cleaning your dispensing equipment is just as important as cleaning your brewing equipment.

Warning: This process uses HOT CAUSTIC. It is bloody dangerous and very hot. Make sure you are safe and that excessive heat from your equipment cannot damage anything nearby.

  1. Start by making a hot caustic mix in a keg. I usually do 50 grams caustic flakes to 5 liters very hot water.
    1. Your mileage may vary, as this depends on the amount of liquid that your beer-line holds.

Rehydrating dry yeast (dry yeast starter)

by AtronSeige on 24th August 2017 at 07:59
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


Notes:
Filtered water is water that has been through a carbon filter. This removed chlorine from the water. If you do not have a carbon filter, you can buy a cheap one that fits onto standard taps at Dischem, or you can use

Cleaning With Caustic

by AtronSeige on 12th November 2015 at 21:13
I am in the process of doing a SERIOUS cleaning of all my equipment. I decided that a caustic rinse sounded like a good idea. But I have no idea how to work with caustic.

WARNING THAT I HAVE LEARNT
NEVER ADD WATER TO CAUSTIC - Adding water to caustic (especially flakes) will cause an explosion.
CAUSTIC & SKIN ARE NOT FRIENDS - Caustic will eat your skin, even in a diluted form. Wear gloves!
RINSE WITH VINEGAR IF IT GETS IN CONTACT WITH YOUR SKIN

CAUSTIC
