  1. Morning All, Two beers to keg this weekend, its sure has been a busy new year, I've left me Saison and IPA for almost 40 days, Saison is looking pretty dam clear, IPA will be keg hopping, hope I haven't left them too long, IPA has been sitting around 21-22 under TC in the shed fridge, Saison has been sitting in the Fermentersaurus with the pressure kit. Hopefully will kick off a Pale just in time to watch the Dockers loose. Tristan
  2. Yeah, unless you opened it or had a clear fermenter was more of if your using this yeast this is normal was what I was aiming for, cheers though. Tristan
  3. Maybe another thread with what yeast looks like fermenting "Whats it look like in ya fermenter" Tristan
  4. @Hairy cheers interesting top fermenting yeast, never seen that before. Tristan
  5. @joolbag cheers like I said hadn't brewed with m29 before Tristan
  6. Well may have my first infection, should I see a doctor, m29 after a 6 days. Almost looks like pellicle forming but (white) could be co2 trapped, not sure as first time brewing with m29. Tristan
  7. Argh! Bottles, kegs were invented for a reason, bottles just there to fit what cant be put into a keg Tristan
  8. One fridge not really doing much, what that fridge needs is a fermenter in it... Looks like this weekend is a good time to knock up another No Rules Pale I might use the S-04 I have in the fridge for this one, all 3 FVs will be in action though Tristan

The Saison came out at 1.047, slightly under SG, got 24 liters into the fermenter, not too fussed. Brew House Efficiency: 71.6% Mash Efficiency: 81.6% Way off on the IPA, still trying to work out what went wrong here, was out 600ml on water, I was slightly hotter on mash temps around 2-2.5 degrees, I was even thinking I stuffed up my grain weight, not sure oh well see what happens when I repeat it 70 Liters brewed for the year Tristan
  10. I had my water on that tap so was half thinking seals, I remember I did see a few chunks of hops going into the keg as well, and yeah I think your right on the over carbonation, one thing I notice brewing all grain your head is now pearl white were as with extract I was noticing an off white color as of taste its the same as when I did this with extract has a little more spice still TAF Tristan
  11. @Otto Von Blotto seems to be pouring a lot better once keg was burped, 34 degrees only dropped off 4 degrees here today, nice to come home to a chilled beer Tristan
  12. I quick carbed rocking the keg at 30psi for 3 minutes 20 seconds (not my usual method, i.e letting it sit in the fridge at serving pressure for a week or two), then let it sit for and hour, burped it, set it for serving over night. Tristan
  13. Dammit looks like I'll have to remove the dip tube and see whats clogged it up... Kegs holding pressure, can't see any leaks. Dying of old age pouring at 8-9psi Tristan
  14. Hmmmm foam coming out of tap, adjust regulator, belch keg, set psi to 8-9psi, hmmm had no problems before, maybe a seal, I did quick carb the beer at 30psi, belched it and set for serving at 10-11psi on the weekend. Tristan
  15. Kegged me No Rules pale ale today, smells delicious full keg, 6 kings out of it. I'm attempting to grab the yeast for a slurry, since I need some US-05 and Brewmart's out have a 1.070 IPA to put down tomorrow. Tristan
