  1. Sterilises it and gets rid of the nasties that live on the grain (lacto etc). Not boiling leads to a greater chance of infection.
  2. M54 is a California Lager yeast which is fermented at 18-20 and claims not to produce the esters, so same temp as ales. MJ also claim that extending lagering is not required with this yeast.
  3. No end date on the dry hop. Some breweries wait till fermentation has finished, drop to 14c (for ales obviously), dry hop, then cold crash a day or 2 later. Really, not much difference than what disgruntled is doing.
  4. And you can be sure that there was no leak at his place beyond the reg?
  5. I'm with kmar on this one. The pressure vessel (keg) is all stainless with the rubber ends allowing in to stand upright and be handled. This may be cleaning fluid that has got between the rubber and keg or the keg is leaking in the join under the rubber.
  6. Good to hear as I ordered one earlier today for my 4L mini keg for mobility/BBQs etc. Should save faffing around with line length and gas pressures on the mini-reg.
  7. I thought it was the way they spelt "gauge" . Gives it a cheap/don't care/knock off impression. The explanation is fair enough as some people might think being a reg will try to connect it directly to the tank which it is not designed for.
  8. Can use soft drink bottles as they can handle the pressure -coke used to have 3 litre ones at one stage, however need to keep them out of the light the entire time to stop skunking. Those mini-kegs/growlers can be multi-use. Fill them and ferment in them, then pour into a glass, or connect into a keg system like in the bottom link. The kegs in the 2 links are essentially the same, the bottom one just has the screw in ball lock cap for gas and dispensing. Even with 2 kegs, you only need one gas bottle, just run a T junction in the gas line to feed both.
  9. A triple IPA is an increase on the double IPA (DIPA) which is an increase on the IPA, so would genereally be around 9 to 10% ABV. Deeds Cheat Code is 10% ABV - hence a triple IPA. There are some that say DDH or TDH which is double/triple dry hop. BTW the Deeds is a very good beer. Edit - sometimes a DIPA is also called an IIPA or Imperial IPA.
  10. Technology - just can't trust it Good luck with the brew.
  11. According to brewfather and my choc raspberry milkshake porter recipe 500g of lactose adds 7 points to both the sg and fg. 750g added 10 points to both, so showing it as non-fermentable. My CRMP with 750g of lactose went from 1.076 to 1.026 (predicted was 1.028).
  12. It is the alcohol content that puts the reading out, hence the adjustment. For fg with hydro, should degas the sample by pouring it between glasses or let it sit and go flat with a bit of shaking.
  13. Did you dry hop the beer. I've had hops block the connect on the keg - had to pull it apart a few times to keep cleaning the hops out. This beer didn't get cold crashed and was commando hopped (free and loose) which was the reason for the blockages.
  14. I see your juice train and raise it Great hop/fruitiness, slight shade of booze (not unexpected at 9%), but a great beer.
