  1. No reason to, that's what the pellets turn out like once you put them into a fermenter/boil. Still going to give the same end product

    Has anyone had any experience with the Digiboil from KegLand? Seems like it would make a good BIAB kettle like the Crown Urns. Good price too https://www.kegland.com.au/35l-digiboil-digital-turbo-boiler-2400watt.html

    CO2 Cylinder V Soda Stream: which way to go?

    I use a fridge to ferment & keep beer cold (keg & bottles). It isn't too bad, but limits how often you brew. If I have a keg on, it stays in the beer fridge until empty, meaning I can't change the temperature of the fridge to suit a temperature controlled fermentation. If you go down the way of the Soda Streams, there are different fittings, etc required to connect the regulator

    Heat Pad Or Heat Belt??

    Could lead to yeast autolysis if it gets heated up too much, as others have said https://beerandbrewing.com/dictionary/DQXAk4DwuE/
  5. Was very close to trying out this method after I couldn't get mine open to dry Hop it! Won't be tightening it as much anymore

    Grain mill

    Is there much difference between a 2 roller & 3 roller? I'm assuming it's for efficiency?

    Books Mastering Homebrew

    Use the spreadsheet attached for extract brewing, but move into a brewing software (ie Beersmith, brewers friend) for all grain & more technical recipes. Shouldn't need to estimate as such if you have the right software. I'd say get all of your processes right (cleaning, sanitisation, timing, etc) then an understanding of what different hops, grains, yeasts etc do. I think that's more important than designing a recipe based around an OG to begin with, but hey, im only a rookie myself! Kit & Extract Beer Designer V4.1.xls

    Not sure about hops, but I reckon there would be some yeasts that would throw these flavours..

    How are you going to chill the wort? Keep in mind this will affect your hop additions

    Have you adjusted your batch size in Beersmith to what you ended with?

    Beer Subscriptions

    Does anyone receive / recommend a beer subscription of sorts? I've seen a few, like Beer Cartel, but not sure what ones would be good. Looking to expand my taste buds without my decision getting in the way of what I choose at the shops. Cheers!

    Chuck it in IanH's spreadsheet, but you may need to add in a few extra fermentables like I have, explained in the link below
