  1. Will my first stout is bottled. Was Prob one of the best bottling runs I've had. 30 longies almost no wastage. Only real fail was test bottle was placed a tad hard on the bench by accident. Well it opened up to a shower of brown. not the worst Brown shower I suppose. Bottle was the very last as well so not quite the best test. Oh well. Waiting till the 13 th for a real go

    Was the cascade from the same packet each time? Or individual vacuum seal baggies? If individual, we they purchased at the same time? That might point to a possible cause... Anything in Your notes that might hint towards another cause? Temp etc

    After 10 days conditioning. Heat is back on the menu. It's a bit early to tell if it's much with young alcohol get. But can definately taste the ginger heat too. Lemon is also strong flavour, as expected from the recipe. Next iteration will only have the juice for 1 lemon instead of the whole dang thing. Also considering a shorter boil as well.
  8. That looks very nice. My temp controller only has a heat belt connected ATM. Have not sorted cooling as of yet. Because of that I'm sitting the wort at 20-21c I don't think a fan on it would do enough to get it down 3c

    Bottled the cider. OMG. One it bottle conditions watch out. A final 8.8% ABV. They are for my mum's birthday in August. Hope they last that long.
  10. I've got a plan for it for a bit later on. I can get a 30l plastic fantastic 'kit' for $35 that should have the head Room I need for stout. Unless 30l vessel for 23l batch still isn't big enough...

    Small batch cider looking very close to done. Treated myself to a temp controller today. And my stout is foamy and smelling like it was a gift from the heavens. Has been a good day for my fermenters. Not feeling great about the big cider I had bottled a bit back that had issues with some mould. Looking clearer but can see some very dark sedement that mm concerned is infected/DOA. Note second pic of cider was after inversion
  12. My kit never had a collar which is why I didn't put it on in the first place. Had just watched some vids of stouts being made in the Cooper's kit. More a should ii source one sort of moment
  13. Another question around stouts. It's got a rather foamy Krouse (?) Head on it. Should I be running this with one of those collars to give extra head space?

  15. Yeah it's the Cooper's plastic one. One error correcting for now. But have a plan to get a good one soon.
