Drinking my nitro stout 👍

 

Does that taste as much like an Irish stout as it looks.   Great looking head on that.

Did you get the festive cascading bubbles thing happening down the outside of your glass Hoppy like our man @Cosmo2450 Cosmo with the nitro cold coffee?

Bit sad @Hoppy81 as my network access is so poor I cannot seem to view the festy vids that ye good brewers load... will try checking it out when get somewhere w better bandwidth.

But it all sounds great mate.... well done! 

So you got a Nitro Gas (pure N) and special tap for the pouring?

70% Nitrogen 30% C02 and a stout tap

Aaah thanks @Hoppy81 mate.  Yeah that must be the famous 'beer gas' you were mentioning Kelsey @Otto Von Blotto?

@Cosmo2450 was using nitro pure - I believe Cosmo advises so due to the C02 mix not being good for the chilled coffee thing.

So do you purchase the 'beer gas' in a specific cylinder then for your festival of cascading bubble stout Hoppy?

I carbonate with C02 as per normal and serve with the Nitro/C02 mix at roughly 30psi

Gold.  Thanks for that.  

Is the Nitro-Carb mix readily available... have only seen the nitro pure in one HB shop and the cylinder was prolly smaller than a Soda Stream refill bottle.

But I do live in Booneyville and don't get to spend a swag of time in festive HB and Beer Gas shops : (

Probably be more cost effective the way you are doing it Hoppy?

I purchased a 6kg bottle from BOC for $50 then $14 per month rental i think it was, not the cheapest but it's worth it in my opinion mate

Well you got a great result!

And you're not going to lose your licence and cop massive fines getting rolled on the way home from buying a bar supplied expensive Guinness or 7  that way ; )

One of @Norris! beers.
The bridge road stubby.

Aroma: Melon, strawberry, citrus, tomato leaf

Flavour: Gauva paw paw kiwi fruit pepper

Light, good carb, slight sweetness perfect bittered 

Thought I took a picture but hey, whoopsy daisy. 
Norris, I’d be a very happy man if I got that at a brewery. 
I love that the aroma and taste made my mind think. 
finished dry and that’s what I like. 

Great beer mate.

Cheers Kirk. Truly appreciate the feedback it has made my day.

That was the brew with the horrible name and a little Nelson sauvin tossed in at flameout. I actually just finished the keg yesterday and while I could pick up the NS coming through kind of strongly I liked it a lot. It was extract to go along with the AG hazy pale you got. I liked the hazy better and felt that this brew was a good quick keg filler, not my best work but definitely drinkable. I would increase the dry hop if I did it again.

The yeast might of provided some flavours also.

Your descriptions are on point. Now you see why I am like "I think it is citrusy with a tinge of brackleseed or something?" Tomato leaf...Screenshot_20200108-192405.thumb.jpg.34d5d2465969be976be14b0210389761.jpg

No brew day is complete without a brew day bitter!   This is my "Rudstickle Bitter" - a fairly standard English bitter using NZ hops Dr Rudi and Sticklebract.   Very happy with this one though it did end up darker than Beersmith led me to believe.   Next time I do it I'll probably drop the 50g roasted barley or perhaps swap it out for a light choc, carafa I or whatever...

BB, i worked for Air Liquide in the 90,s and both them & BOC make a 70/30 Stout Mix Gas Cylinder, not sure it’s exact name these days but there is such an animal, as we used  to adjust filling lines to suit a particular mix, cheers.

Cheers Red - good stuff - think you might have said that was at the then new Casino in town (Bris Vegas)?

Right - Beer Gas I think it is called - and @Hoppy81 has got hold of it via BOC... not cheap but leads to a great result.

What I am wondering... is whether I can brew my AG Stout - Carb it with C02 - and then on the keg-pour,  do it with pure Nitrogen to deliver the festive creamy Guinness-like cascading bubble result?

Had a few days off the juice and now it is time to sup upon the Pale Mozzie!  Brewed in December. 

IPA AG on rainwater with local Voyager Veloria Schooner Malt with a bit of Wheat for head retention and creamy top and rocking in at just over 7%ABV using US05.  

Hoppage 34 g Spalt at 60; 40g Mosaic at 15;  40g Galaxy Whirlpool Steep; Late Hop 22g Cascade and 57g Mozzie (Mosaic)… YEEEEEEEEHAAAAAAA this brew has got CLOUT!

Has cleared up nicely in the keg over the last week and is drinking very nicely.   Cheers Brewers!

BB, in order to add Nitrogen to the CO2 you would need a mixer ( which mixes the two gases together, then gasses up the keg )., or go the Stout Mix Cylinder from BOC, I don’t drink Stout but I would go the Cylinder route as it would be much more cost effective. When it’s in a mixture it can easily push the liquid, whereas if you had CO2 in there first the N2 wouldn’t mix with it.

Thanks mate!

So if I had a small keg say 10L - and wanted to gas it with Nitro to try the fancy cascading bubbles - maybe just gas it first up with Nitro?  And pour with nitro?

I would say so, but I’ve never hooked up any Stout to run on pure N2 ?

Nitrogen is a slow moving gas when in a vapour form through Gas Lines, so it would pour very slowly I would assume.

Red IPA, biofine sure cleared that up well! (not, think I have some haze issues)

Granted I am at the very beginning of my brewing journey and therefore much less of a perfectionist than some, but sitting at my desk on a Friday waiting for drinking time that still looks like a bloody delicious beer to me.
