    BREW DAY!! WATCHA' GOT, EH!? 2019

    Done. No dramas, by the end i was tasting the same beer over and over. On a side note my Engish IPA finished 2nd place, wrapped with the result.

    BIAB Equip for newbee

    Then surely this is not no chill. I suppose we really need to understand why people use this method. I think generally they use it as a means to continue brewing while either they dont have a spare fermenter or spare capacity in a temperature controlled environment. Using cubes gives them the ability to stock up on wort and use when space becomes available. It also saves time on brew days where you dont have to use a chiller to get the wort tempeature down. The physical act of transfering from a cube to the fv airates the wort so no need to stir. Yes you can and should. I use this method all the time. However i do chill with a counter flow chiller before hand so i dont have to wait long before pitching.

    Dry Hopping At Different Temperatures

    Its 100% important at every stage of the process. If you get an infection they can be a bastard to get rid of. A CBF attitude will lead eventually to lawn fertiliser and much hair pulling in subsequent batches, where did it go wrong? My advice, dont take shortcuts. If your gut feel says this isn't right, then it probably isn't.

    What's in your fermenter? 2019

    American IPA is ready. Numbers from Platto and sample match with expected fg. Dry hopped this 5pm 25g centennial and bubble count went up from around 6bpm to around 60 but has since died back. I will cc first thing tomorrow and package mid next week.
  5. Well finally. Kegged my Irish Stout. Took a small sample, looks fine and tastes like flat guiness. So im hoping this is spot on when carbed up.

    YEAST Questions 2019

    Last night i pitched a us05 as was worried i had pitched a dead yeast. Action has started on this now. Tonight i took it out of brew freezer and it will ferment at ambient. Hope this temperature in Melbourne remains the same for next few days. Dont want to stress the us05 but want the kveik to come on strong.

    Irish stout is done 1016 which is about right. Sample on the bench has been 2days no change. Will wait till morning and set start of cold crash. Its currently in wine fridge so can only get down to 5c, but it will remain there for a week before kegging. This is the one i soured 3l of wort, boiled then added back to fv. Taste, dry, no off flavour. Cant wait to get a real mouthful of this.
  12. Just enter the 390, see how it comes out. And welcome to the crew.

    YEAST Questions 2019

    That's the problem right there. Pitched at 24c on the way down to standard ale temperature. So it might not like the colder fermentation temperature. Will make an adjustment when i get home from work tonight.

    To do ...

    I would go easy on the smoked malt. Last one i did was 100g light peat smoked and to be honest its slighly too much smoke for me.
