    2 stuck + pedio

    it is now day seven and stable at 1.015, so I would presume that would be the final FG. Never had a brew finish that high before, anyway I have set it to cold crash and will bottle in 2 or 3 days, fingers crossed, I will reuse that yeast in a dry Irish stout and see if it improves second time round.

    80 Batches and still going strong

    I also have no idea how many brews I have done. Started in the 80,s somewhere with very basic kits, stopped until 2010 due to work commitments, since then started back on kits and thanks to this forum have progressed to extracts and my first AG in a 20ltr urn, and now have the 40ltr. Have to say back around late 70,s coopers had a wort in a box, gave that a go as well cheers

    Seems like a run of stuck fermentation, I also have a slow one. Kilkenny Irish cream clone, started at 1.040 and 5 days into fermentation still at 1.020, WLP004 Irish ale yeast. Have turned it up to 20.5 and give it a few more days cheers john

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

    Just put down a Kilkenny Irish ale, it is a brewers friend recipe, bit worried about the crystal at .800, I thought it was too much so cut it back to .400,fingers crossed

    @The Captain!! I was wondering how you get around the cube hop in beer smith , there is no provision, I usually cube at about 80deg over night

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

    big day in the garage today, 0930 to 16.30 bottled an English bitter, then put down another Pacific Ale. this time 23ltrs with the new urn. for the price the urn doesn't stack up to the Crown, but I gotta say it performed ok. Doesn't have a continues boil but maintains a constant slow boil. so far reasonably happy. null
  8. me either, mine have had multiple brews thru them, changed the caps tho

    The homebrew economy

    I must keep an eye out at my Aldi for that power meter, sounds like a handy piece of equipment cheers
  10. I have a coopers bitter can I have to use, think I will do the extra smooth bitter with molasses
  11. Yeh, first in a long time Lusty, not sure what I did different, whether it’s the grain bill or the extra cold crash time, anyway I’m pleased

    Hey Kelsey, where did you get your grain bag, mine isn’t cylindrical like that, it’s more square shaped like a old pair of bloomers, cheers, john
