  1. I’ve never done a single hop pale with Simcoe so here it is.
  2. Hey mate, I hand lift my double batches in the G70 mate. You’ll be fine to lift a few kilos of grain from a pot. I milk my grains farly chunky. Probably have a mm or 2 for the grains to passed through. it is worth rinsing (sparging) as long as you’ve accounted for the extra volume for the water. I usually go a degree or so higher than the mash temp but if your mini mashing I’d say only a degree. Ive made beers with milled grains a year old and it was fine. Not ideal but fine. best to crack them rather than turn them to powder. Put em in a bag and bash the bajesus out of em with a roller.
  3. So I’ve just been told that Grainfather are coming out with some new equipment to compliment the G70. Thinking it’s bigger FVs and Glycol chiller. If it is that, I’ll be pressing order pretty bloody soon.
  4. You clearly haven’t eaten a hop pellet or cone yet ha ha ha 180g. That’s for a pale ale. You should see the IPA version ha ha ha
  5. The thing with this one is getting the best Citra, mosaic and simcoe hops you can. I adjust the citra/mosaic/simcoe blend depending on the aroma/freshness or those hops. To give you the “candy like aroma and bubblegum flavour” or reminiscent of bubblegum. Not to be confused with the fermentation flavour of bubblegum that is an off flavour.
  6. dry hop was actually 180g per 21l batch equal in amounts. This is a batch that makes two 21l cubes. Once dry hopped to the bejesus it just fills a keg.
  7. An undryhopped version of my Hoppa Bubba. tastes a lot cleaner but overall prefer the Uber hopped version.
  8. Noted mate. If it was on the kettle I’m wondering how much isomerised……….. I’ll be getting a couple of syringes and putting them in the mash to warm up. Then into the boil.
  9. Either the SS brew tech gear that I can expand as I turn my system to a pilot brew set or brew tools with the SS brew tech glycol, or grainfather and just keep this set up for home
  10. That’s a fair call. I don’t have the time to fix and stuff up so I would send away if I could otherwise buy a new one.
  11. This’ll be on in a couple of days. But will probably forget to post. Dutifully Scrupulous This’ll have a 200g dry hop with a fairly equal parts of each hop in each 21 L batch.
  12. I know most people think the G70 is way over priced, I beg to differ. I love using mine. and although I don’t brew as often I’m thoroughly enjoying making the same beer over and over. I’ve really started to dial in recipes. Now I think the only changes in my beers are how it’s fermented. I’ll be upgrading to a glycol set up soon enough so I can really start to hone the craft. im not saying that you can’t do this with other brands and models I’m just saying that the G70 works for me.
