    Goodbye for now

    I am taking a break from drinking and brewing for a while. Lately i have realised that i do indeed have a problem with alcohol and drinking to excess. I need some time to get my old self back and i think leaving this forum for little while will aid in my recovery. I just wanted to say a big thankyou to all that have helped me on this forum. Cheers, Rowan

    Brew Systems Questions 2019

    Some of you might know that i want to do a series of small batch single hop beers, and i was wondering if i should do them in a single 19 litre pot on an electric hotplate, or just use my 40 litre urn? If i use a pot, is it ok to just dump the entire amount of wort, break material and all (i will be using a hop sock) into the fermenter? Or do i need to buy a siphon?

    Head retention

    G'day UnkieDrunkie, What ingredients do you usually use to make your beers? Replacing Brew Enhancers with Dry Malt Extract helps with head formation and retention, also steeping grains and hops can contribute too

    Hop questions 2019

    His mum and dad gave me alot of his brewing stuff too with a bunch of pellet hops, so i might just make a beer with those instead. The plan was to use the fresh hops he grew in a tribute beer brewed with the help of his younger brother. We'll still make the beer, just not with his homegrown hops.

    Hop questions 2019

    I can't fully remember what they felt like, but im pretty sure they were still a little soft. Maybe i shouldn't use them this time around, might wait for next years harvest and try and pick them at the right time, that is if his old man keeps watering the hop plant!

    Hop questions 2019

    Heres one for those who grow their own hops. Sorry in advance for the backstory but i feel it is necessary. I got a good mate of mine hooked on homebrewing a couple of years ago, but he passed away last year. He was a very good gardener and loved to grow all things edible. It didn't take long for him to start growing hops. He only had one plant, a Cascade variety. The first year didn't yield anything, but his younger brother called me up a few weeks ago and said it was taking off with all these little flowers. I went over with limited knowledge about fresh hops, but i could see the yellow lupulin stuff on them so i gathered they were ready to pick. I ended up drying them out on a container lid sat in the shed for a few days or more, now i have them in the fridge. So heres my questions, did i pick them too early? Because they look very small, do they look dried out enough? And how do i use them in a brew? Note: the browner looking ones at the bottom were picked by his old man a few days before i went over there and he just put them in a paper bag, will they be ok to use too?
