  1. Sorry to hear about the fire, that's awful. With bub #2 due in January, I did a bit of a tidy up in the garage. Didn't realise how much space my brew stuff was taking up. Went to Bunnings and snapped up the last of these shelves. Was the display one so got it for a neat $100, saved myself $70. Now it's all stored neat and tidy.
  2. I had a beer that recently got stuck on 1032 for over a week. Tried everything. Last resort, threw in some liquid form enzyme and it finished up at 1002. Haven't tasted it yet, still bottle conditioning.
  3. If I can't bottle a finished beer as soon as I'd like to, for whatever reason, like work, lack of time, etc I'll generally cold crash it if I wasn't going to otherwise. Seems to have done the trick if it's had to sit in the FV for up to an extra week give or take.
  4. This thing has dropped right down to 1003 on the hydro. Tasting much better now. Think I might have a brut IPA of sorts on my hands. Might chuck a heap of dry hops at this and it might turn out alright...
  5. This thing is going ballistic now. The krausen is massive and there's even a krausen formed in the hydrometer. This beer could possible turn out to be a stuff up turned epic? Will wait n see. Glad the enzyme recommendation paid off, thanks guys.
  6. And it's resurrected, alive and kicking!
  7. Chucked some enzyme in tonight. Liquid form, same stuff used for lower carb beers and brut ipas. See what happens...
  8. Boiled yeast has done sweet FA. Off to the LHBS to see if I can salvage this mongrel.
  9. Cheers paddy I'll see how I go. I did what @ChristinaS1 suggested tonight. I'll check it again in 24 hours n see if it's fired up at all.
  10. Yeah gonna give it a crack. I've tasted it several times. It tasted sweet but really green, but had a bit of a weird bitterness as well, hard to describe. Will swing past the lhbs and ask about this enzyme. This beer has been in the FV a week yesterday so after throwing these things at it already hopefully it's not infected.
  11. Haven't added anything else to this POS brew yet. Have bumped temp to 21 degrees and stirred it up again a couple days ago. Hydro still at 1032. Should I expect bottle bombs if I bottled it just to see what happens..?
  12. Do u add any sugar or anything to the boil to act as food for the yeast or anything?
  13. How do we do this? Just boil some water and chuck yeast in whilst it boils, cool, then add the liquid to the wort?
  14. I've got a round 25 ltr water container that is the same material as a cube, same little white tap etc. I use this as a FV. The lid seals up the same as a cube. I've tipped hot wort into this and left it in my fridge overnight, then aerated and pitched yeast the following day, no issues whatsoever. These were anywhere between 11 ltr and 21 ltr batches, so plenty of space between the wort and lid. Not ideal according to some, but it's never caused me any dramas.
  15. I've got a shit gas oven that doesn't hold temps in the right range. I did think of doing that and have seen KR do it on his videos but when I've tried it with just water it always got too hot. Might just have to get a grain father or robo brew or something n just start doing it properly
