Re: Hops after boil and transfer to fermentor

If the hop spider is removed during cooling will that have an affect on the desired bitterness and flavour? It shouldn't. Theoretically, all the acids are already in solution and the chemical reactions continue even if you remove the hop spider. Otherwise, it would be easy for no chill brewers to j...

Re: cold side oxygen reduction -

[It depends on the style you brew. Some of them will need much attention on this aspect to avoid hop oil volatility. It’s the drink super fresh kind of beers within 1 month. Like NEIPA style That's exactly what i meant :D but I'm not a modern IPA fancier so I might be missing a point here. I have t...

Re: cold side oxygen reduction -

But the question I struggle with is "what do they bring to the party?" apart from lighten your bank account or look shiney gorgeous. My thoughts exactly. I have been thinking a while about upgrading my fermenters. Looked a lot at fermzillas, brew buckets, chronical etc. But I realized it is somethi...

Re: Priming Sugar before bottling

mashy, have you measured the amount of sugar you get from the zevro dispenser? F. ex.: how much is 1 tsp from dispenser in grams?

Re: Priming Sugar before bottling

this is just sooooo easy. https://www.amazon.co.uk/Zevro-Plastic-Sugar-More-Transparent/dp/B001A5ZRRU I have to buy one as well. No doubt it works brilliantly :beer: Unfortunately, my beer never carbonated! I experimented putting 1 cube in some bottles and 2 in other and neither carbonated any bit....

Re: Priming Sugar before bottling

I don't do much bottling nowadays, but when I do, I boil the sugar in a bit of water and add it to the bottles with a syringe. That way I'm sure that the sugar is both sanitized and distributed equally in the bottles. Reason to do it that way is to make sure that people that get beer from me won't e...

Re: Cold crash

I guess this is a topic with no simple answer. Many brewers (both home- and pro) claim that you should cold crash slowly in order to not stress the yeast. On the other hand, many do cold crash as fast as possible without any negative effect. Personally, I don't believe it makes any difference. At le...

Re: Sparging

I haven't got a BM, but people get generally good yield even when skipping the sparge altogether so I don't think sparging is an issue here. However, it is generally recommended to sparge very slowly, with water being close to 78 degrees in order do extract as much sugar as possible. You should also...

Re: Thinking about getting a 50l BM

Thanks Cristian. Will look at the video. Looks quite informative :beer: .. And why can you not install a hoist? Ceiling height? It might be doable, but my concerns are: - I live in a rented place and brew in the kitchen - even if the owner was OK with it (I guess he would), I don't like the idea of ...

Re: Thinking about getting a 50l BM

Loads of great info here. Much appreciated :beer: Seems like I will be looking for preowned 50 standard then. The new one on sale seems fantastic. But living in Norway means I have to pay 25% VAT here when buying anything abroad, making it too expensive buying directly from Speidel :( . The only thi...

Thinking about getting a 50l BM

Hi everyone. My first post on forums here :D I have been homebrewing for some years now, using my Beer Brew 30 automatic. I am close to my 90th all grain batch. I started thinking about upgrading my system to something bigger, since I can't keep up with consumption and I feel I sometimes spend too m...
