G'day Fellow brewers Just wanted to ask a couple of questions, thanks in advance for passing on your knowledge. Firstly, I was thinking about how diligent I am with sanitizing (i have been using Sodium Metabisulphite) and i was wondering why nothing is ever said about the tap. What i mean by that is, there is beer left in there when I take samples to check the gravity readings, so whats the chances of it infecting my brews when I'm bottling? What does everyone think of the Coopers PET bottles? or are glass better? Cheers Bateo
Handy link for calculating the final temperature when mixing volumes of two liquids at different temperatures. https://rechneronline.de/chemie-rechner/mix-temperatures.php For example 600ml of boiling water plus 400ml 20°C tap water = 1L of 68°C water. Handy for quickly getting a litre of water at grain stepping temperature. The proportions also work: 1200ml boiling + 800ml 20°C tap water = 2L of 68°C water, 1800ml boiling + 1200ml 20°C tap water = 3L of 68°C water., etc

I've put together this spreadsheet. Thought it might be of interest to some others. If there are any errors, or any additional features that would be useful, let me know and I'll try fix it up. Cheers, Mitch
I am yet to try this but logic dictates the following: There appears 2 ways to make beer for DIY Craft beer smaller tanks. 1. If using Coopers Craft 1.3 kg recipes – don’t add extra sugar in tank as sugar already mixed into the recipe. Costs approx Aus $1 per 740 ml bottle 2. If using other 1.7 – 1.8 kg recipes - then split into exactly 2 halves & store one half in air tight sterilised container in fridge for future batch. Use other half to make brew. Use stored half as soon as first half is bottled. When ready to brew recipe, mix in tank and add 500 g sugar. Will need to obtain & add yeast to second half of recipe as recipes only come with one serving of yeast. Use brewing yeast only. Costs approx Aus $0.50c per 740 ml bottle. Hope this helps. Would love to hear the results from anyone who tries this halving recipe.
