    Have a brewing session scheduled for after work tonight. Best fitting pale ale category but using Magnum for bittering and Southern Aroma in whirlpool so not exactly the typical american hop style....

    I use Perasan for sanitising bottles and feel it's been doing a fine job at 2% dilution. A litre of that stuff has lasted me more than a year and I bottle on average 2 batches a month. It's a fine...

    I don't think there's anything wrong with dry hopping a Pilsner. Just use the appropriate hops and understand that if you are going to lager it for 6 months, the aroma will have faded a bit. Maybe a...

    Hi Groenspookasem, probably best to follow Jakes' advice as he has much more hands on experience in this. My understanding is that the extra flavour you get from the potstill is not always a plus and...

    Thanks for sharing! Are you looking for someone to split some kilo's with? I'd like to get my hands on some Southern Aroma, Southern Passion and African Queen but 3kg's might be a bit much for my...

    One of the last pale ales left of the first Ragnarok (kveik) brews. Doesn't look like it's interested in clearing up at all, so the turbidity is something I will expect with this strain as it looks...

    A friend of mine played around with a potstill to make some whiskey. It's not as easy as one might like it to be. If I were to seriously consider something like this, I'd go for the T500 rather than...

    Hi Krugie, I tend to use a hop bag if I want to re-use the yeast cake without washing the yeast. Won't use the hop bag if I am tossing the yeast down the drain. If you transfer the yeast to a...

    For colour adjustment, I'd go for a Caraffa grain. Always have Caraffa II in my brewery. It's a dehusked roasted grain so you don't get any flavour from it when used in small quantities. My pale ale...
