    • Well that's a great set-up, I would like a Kegerator but need to further my skills before I attempt kegging etc. I have a pilot mate (Captain) he gas one but he earns a tad more than me !! 😂 Cheers.
    • Yeah I usually use it for cordials. Saves buying soda water when I can put 19 litres in a keg essentially for free and carbonate it in a day or two. The Mrs and my olds when they're around enjoy it as well.  Whenever I have a stout or porter on tap though the soda water goes off tap until that keg is empty, so in those periods I have all three taps on beer.
    • I stopped using 1272 because it produced a slight tartness in the beer which I didn't particularly like. Instead of US-05 though I went to 1056 to have all liquid strains going. I'm enjoying the results more with it.  I'm gonna go back to S-04 for my porter whenever I brew it. I really enjoyed that recipe with that yeast. Other batches with 1469 came out a little too dry. It suits my stouts but not the porter.
    • How do you find S04 greeny what does it bring to the table 
    • I got rid of my Nottingham. Found US05, 1272 and S04 more to my liking despite them being slower. Floculation wise S04 is on a par and 1272 not far back either. 1272 seems to hold the hop influence quite well. Not as much as US05 though.
