    Lekker Ray, what's your Wit recipe looking like and what yeast strain are you planning on using? I'm going to be pitching some Witsmith from liquid culture soon but the recipe is more of a wheat beer...

    Hi jannie, thanks for sharing! glad that you were able to do a side-by-side test and figure out pretty quickly the importance of temp control. Next, you probably will find that yeast strain, health...

    Looking forward to these results!

    I've heard reports of Kveik strains sometimes not liking low gravity worts but really don't know whether to place any value on that. Wondering if you might get...

    Have done the same as what Harhm suggests. In my recipe I tried to use base malts with more character, such as Vienna and Munich, rather than going with Pilsner Malt or Pale Malt. Added 6% carapils...

    I think it depends on the size you are looking for. the smallest that distillique sells is 200l at R4800 which includes a frame.

    Sounds great. Light, creamy body with caramel/toffee. Now I'm thirsty.

    I haven't fermented us-05 so low yet. Usually pitch at 14 and then ferment it at 16 as I've read that it sometimes tastes a...

    I generally just dump on the yeast cake. I'm more worried of contaminating the fermenter by trying to clean it than what I am worried about the ring causing some contamination. Maybe have a read...

    Awesome. Where did you manage to get a hold of the Lacto and Brett? Is it a mixed culture already or did you purchase two pure strains? A year is a long time but it's even worse waiting a year and...

    Sounds like an epic, mouthwatering beer. I always wonder whether to call a beer a Session IPA or a Pale Ale... In comp, I'd rather enter it as a Pale Ale.

    No brewing this weekend for me, just...

    Die "buitekamer" behoort te werk. Try to pitch a bit lower than what you want to ferment at. I'd try and get it down to 16 degrees C for pitching. Some brewers might want it a bit warmer but without...

    Very well understood. There's an age old saying. Brewers make wort, yeast makes beer. With a good fermentation, you can end up with a pleasurable beer even if the recipe wasn't spot on. It doesn't...

    Sorry I can't give much input on extract brewing but I would recommend that you consider using alternative yeast to the coopers yeast. A packet or two of US-04 should do the job at a fair price. If...

    Hi Harhm, in my opinion the J17 and S-Passion combo worked quite well with Ragnarok. My dry-hops was mostly J17 though. The flavours from Ragnarok strain could work with NEIPA already but might have...

    Yeah, I think going this route, you should get close to the same mouthfeel. You might have a bit more colour but then if you use the correct yeast, it would still be a nice beer. Probably best not to...

    I don't think there is a massive risk if done right. Sterilise your jars (already cleaned and sanitised) in pressure cooker, boil your DME, fill jars, and if you really want to be extra safe, then...
