    Fast fermentation??

    Yep, stay away from turbo, does not get good reviews on the distilling forums. I tried it in a spirit wash years ago. Bad flavour even after the distillation run.

    Fruit Beer

    Anyone used pomegranate? I have a crop that will be ready real soon. Issue i see is the seeds.

    Anyone Else Growing Hops This Year?

    Just thinking about this. If i get any crop from mine which i doubt this year. Could i dry the flowers in one of those food drier thingys?
  4. First crack, Brown IPA, only 6 days in the bottle. Loving this one.

    Plaato v Tilt

    Lusty, totally agree. This is over the top brewing for a home brewer and also for most, out of their price range. Dont get me wrong this is not about what you can afford but a genuine comparison of 2 mass market products and a review of how they compare. The outlay i have on these is huge, money could have been better spent. This topic is to help peeps who are concidering buying one of these. Hopefully at the end when i give my verdict on both. I will have saved that brewer $200 on buying the wrong product. I personally find the science fascinating.

    Plaato v Tilt

    Small update, dont expect things to move swiftly form here on in. Brew is almost done but i will wait a few more days. Plaato at 1015, Tilt bobbing 1013 - 1014. Only 34bpm from plaato now. Didnt help when adding dry hops as co2 blanket lost when open the lid. Plaato as i speak has gone offline.
  7. Well well, back to the Northern brewers pilsner. I commented at the time that hate mail might need to be sent. Its been sitting untapped in the kegerator for a while now, maybe 2 months or so. What a difference!! The hops have mellowed and the steam beer characteristic has gone away. Im glad i added saaz for dry hops as they are beginning to shine.

    Stuck ferment......what they look like?

    +1 to both above. Rock the fv a little as this can be enough to: a, break the surface tension and b, rouse the yeast a little.

    What's in your fermenter? 2019

    You must be drawing air in through the recirculating line, you might need to nip up the connections.

    Plaato v Tilt

    Yes mate i did it using beersmith couple months back and every brew since has been spot on. Old habits never die though and i will eventually take a hydro reading.

    Plaato v Tilt

    Ok another update with a sample. Plaato said 1.024, tilt said 1.021, actual reading with refracto 1.022. So these 2 units are neck and neck with this brew. Put the plaato into learning mode and adjusted to 1.022. Now we get to the pointy end will see what happens as i am going to toss some dry hops.
