    Whiskeys in the jar, let the aging begin. Managed to finish before eskom shat itself. Washed the still last night and realized I had the neck on too tight, that's where I lost half my batch last time around. Rookie mistake. Still got a bottle and a half at 40% on some french oak. Looking forward to try it in around 6 months from now. On another note, I'm kegging my Skare pseudo Pilsner tonight.

    Did you do a yeast cell count before cropping and again after a hour?

Anyone here have a recommendation on a temp controlled food dehydrator starting from 30C or lower? Might just flange one together with a hangabout stc a few fans and a heatsource. Keen to propogate all my gen (1) to me kveiks and dry them out for ease of storage.
    I think you just described a Biltong maker. Yay, ftw, new hobby

    Have you counted yeast Harhm? How did you do it without lab gear? I'm not sure where you were heading, but I'll flip the question back to you and would appreciate a legitimate response. As a homebrewer, how do you count your yeast?

    Will brew a plain blonde Monday, and might try another gruit this weekend if nothing goes wrong.

    Gruit you say, what are you planning? I've never done one, so keen to hear more.

    I'm doing a bourbon mash this weekend, reiterated and planning on on 1.114 or thereabouts. 11kgs total which consists of corn, 2 row, wheat and a touch of rye.

    Hoping to squeeze out a pale ale with some galaxy and summit or something something thereafter.

    the one I'm brewing is from a brewing book I read a while ago, can't remember if it was Radical Brewing or Sacred and Herbal healing beers, but it uses lavender, chamomile and lemonbalm instead of hops with a standard pale ale grain bill (though I have found adding a gram of hops just makes it a bit better).
    It tastes a bit different, but not unpleasant. kinda like George Washington's small beer, it is beer, but not beer at the same time.
