  1. thanks for replies will chill a bottle down
  2. I brewed a beer and bottled it last week hydrometer sad it was ready so left for 3 more days retested same reading ,.Fraction higher reading than one so bottled it into bet bottles , checked it last night bottles hard not a good sign , so opened one volcano , so pyut what i could into a glass for smell and taste test ,smelt ok and taste was good for a one week old beer Question do i dump it or could i put it back into fermenter and let it work out again
  3. will put fermnter in bath of cold water , our water is near freezing point at moment being rain water
  4. If I put a fining in my beer that is still in fermenter Before bottling , will it take out to much yeast to stop it from carbonating up Why i ask is i have a beer down now and its not dropping the crap on the top , i think my kitchen is to hot beer is sitting around 22 and i know its ready to bottle hydrometer tells me that , also i put some dry hops in and they are still in suspension
  5. Got this as a reply from MJ Thanks for your patience while I consulted the tech team about this. The advice I have from the tech team is that you need to be very careful to avoid the cider becoming badly oxidised very quickly. Also the shelf life once bottled is very short if there’s no co2. I’d recommend reducing the amount of priming sugar significantly. As long as there’s enough to give a hiss when the bottle opens, there’s enough to keep it fresh – maybe 25%-50% of what he would normally use. Then it would be a gently sparkling cider but not entirely flat. I hope this helps, Many Thanks
  6. Thanks for reply will get on and get bottles washed
  7. I am about to bottle a MJ apple cider and was wondering about bottling with out carbonation, is there any pitfalls in doing this like time it can be left in bottle ageing , my last cider i made ,we drank a lot of that before it carbonated up, and we liked it better that carbonated
  8. I brewed an elderberry flower and lime, used all the sweetener but next time will use half, bottled it at the weekend, all went well , One of my mates came round and wanted to try it ,well i opened a bottle , flat as, but tastes realty nice, SWMBO liked it as well So was wondering if we really need to gas the bottles
  9. Thanks for info , i have made it the way you say, but with out the dry hopping (good idea)and it turned out lovely when young , but after a few months the flavour depleted , this may be the kind of beer it is , so boiling will just make bitter and no flavour
  10. Lookin at making a beer can of Canadian blonde ! kg of light malt Citra hops to make a lite easy drinking Summer beer, some help with the amount and boil times for the hops would be much appreciated
