    My first AG brew

    Gonna throw down my first AG brew this weekend. Ive always wanted to do a Mosaic/Citra IPA. Been looking at Beersmith and some recipes online and youtube. Im thinking of the following but would welcome any feedback or suggestions
  5. Sorry about the redundancy mate. That’s $hit i made the coopers stout, with coopers dark malt liquid extract , dextrose and lactose. Week in the fermenter, two weeks carbing and was good to go real tasty drop

    Todays tastings

    Feral Imperial East Coast IPA basically an imperial NEIPA. 8% NEIPA’s style means you don’t taste the alcohol. But coming in at 8% you definitely do taste it. A regular IIPA has that hit of bitterness to offset the alcohol but because of the style guidelines this just comes across confused. You get that Big malty hit , followed by the alcohol , then a big hit of fruit from the hops but no bitterness to balance all of the above. Overall not bad ,$26 for four cans. But definitely a case of the hype not living up to its expectations

    BRB, just popping off down the rabbit hole

    Yeah been reading about that but supposedly the 3.1 is pretty accurate. Especially when the recirc is on to keep it even. There’s a good YouTuber David Heath who did a test on the accuracy of temp and water volumes and the new rig is pretty accurate

    Finally found a use for the washing machine

    I always give mine a quick thirty minute wash on their own after brewing with some napisan. Works a treat aside from the lecture of wasting energy and carbon footprints from herself

    BRB, just popping off down the rabbit hole

    For any handy men out there. Is this normal for a ball valve tap. The the head just comes off if you pull it. It’s not screwed in
  13. How hard can AG be right? It’s just soaking malt and boiling hops right. !! $570 and they still forgot some parts. The silicone bit for the top screen is missing but a lot of people don’t even use it. But I’ll still email and complain of course

    Cooper Fermenter

    The bottles taking a bit longer to firm up is normal given the drop in temps. Might take a couple of weeks longer. Assuming all have been primed and lids fully sealed etc cant help you with the vinegar taste. That sucks
