I thought rule 1 was cleanliness. I guess it's back to the old drawing board for me. 😄

Cleanliness is next to godliness or the other way around they say. Not sure I believe in God?

Ok temperature can be Rule 1.5.

Other than everything that is mentioned here.

The one thing that improved my beers was replacing the can yeast 

with a better quality one.

The more brews you do the more convenient you become.

Good luck and let us know how it turns out.

Cheers

Hi Joseph,

Welcome to the forum, I am from Adelaide & joined in June 2018. My first Beer was as simple Lager that came with the Coopers Kit, I had the reverse problem - couldn't keep the temp up to 18 degrees, in spite of wrapping the FV in insulated blankets, quilts, even encased the whole thing in a box that a car fridge came in. It turned out pretty flat tasting but was drinkable.

On my second attempt (Stout) I decided to de-commission my rather large back bar fridge, buy a Mangrove Jack Dual Temperature Controller & a Heat Belt - about $100.

Apart from a few issues now & again I am on about my 10th brew & without this forum & the guys vast & varied knowledge one would be pretty much shooting in the dark, although Coopers Videos & the Internet are great, I still read & check the forum often as there is a lot of valuable advice & learning there.

All the best with your brewing adventures.

Cheers

Phil
