  4. Hi Gully, I'm watching and interested in this thread, I'm wanting to attempt some yeast play. recent 2 brews have no dry hoppin so thinkin maybe time to try - slurry only or washin, then maybe harvesting both dry yeast - 1 x us05 and 1 notty - thinkin i'll save a 750 from the bottom of the FV of each in tha next cupla days cheers and regards Guv

    2 brews in 2 days Both pimped up kit Pale Ale with hop boils. Almost the same apart from some variation of hops. 1 has US05, the Other Notty, so will interesting tosee how different they are. Used up the remainders of centenial for bittering in both and a mix of amarillo, cascade and galaxy for some flavouring. Looking forward to tasting and happy ther 50 ltrs in the pipeline plus 1 keg nearly carbed for Xmas, cheers Guvna
  7. Help ! - would silicone be safe to use? the FV and tap will be retired after. Just wanting to save the beer? Maybe keg lube smeared all around?
  8. Brewing Emergency ! I just transfered brew into FV and added yeast, ...and now Iv'e noticed the small crack in the FV tap thread has grown and I have a small leak. its dripping very slowy but leaking all the same . What can I do? regards Guvna

    Recommendations for Beers while in England

    *Who are these people keeping the manufacture of said beer going ? does this represent beer lovers in Aus and abroad ? crikey , these nimbys need to own up to consuming this 'fosters drink' and ask for an upgrade such as Coopers. *just kiddin, Guv

    Gas Bottle Down ! #$%^

    Co2 bottle No2 has stabalized the crisis! tightening of both keg posts may helped . alert level remains on 'high', ...whilst refill $ value has plumeted ... *lesson learned ( *subject to beer consumed when kegging...........lol ) Guvna

    Pretty sure the fact there was no pressure in the keg suggests the keg itself has an issue somewhere. If the keg was holding and the co2 empty I would think issue lies within in lines and or regulator?

    Thanks Lusty, When I hooked this latest keg up I thought I had done this as per usual practice. (Although empty bottle would suggest not!) Be just my luck to have a hard to find gremlin. i.e bad keg weld or similar Guvna
