"if using hop cones I wouldn't bother, if you are using pellet form then I do because it ends up through all the beer etc. I use a hop spider to add hops during boil and use a hop sock or tea container) for dry hopping. Hope that helps."

Advice on using a hop bag in Grainfather

Hi,I'm new to this site and this is my first post. I've been a kit/extract brewer for many years and decided to move to BIAB in an effort to improve my beer and after some research came across the Grainfather and to me it seemed the way to go. I have ordered one and it should be delivered before Xmas. My first brew will be a Citra pale ale which uses 6.5kg of grain and a total of 237gm of Citra hops of which 74gm are dry hopped. My question is should I use a hop sock for this brew due to the…See More

While with the IMP Epic has created what may be for me the nicest moderate-alcohol pale ale produced in New Zealand yet, if it was in the running for my favourite beer to be released in 2014 it’s now been pipped by another from the same company, the Carolina. Because this has even more going on, and combines flavours in such a manner that I find utterly delicious.

University of Illinois at Chicago professor Jennifer Wiley has concluded that the average man produces his most creative thinking with an alcohol level of 0.075%. Known as the creative peak, it’s considered the ideal state for problem solving, inventing and generally coming up with great ideas.

OK, so about this trick: Gunnarson will be chained up and put inside of the 132-gallon beer can, which will then be topped off with a few extra kegs and chained shut. Gunnarson will have to free himself inside the can, maneuver his arm out of the drinking hole and blindly work a combination lock to free the chains on the outside of the can. All of this in under two-and-a-half minutes, says Leary, because that’s how long Gunnarson can hold his breath.

Kauri Road Brewery 2 final post – it's a wrap

Posted by Barry on December 8, 2014 at 9:07pm 23 Comments

Hey,

So after a wet run and autotune it was time. Time to brew and no more procrastinating.

I started contemplating this build nearly 2 years ago and starting collecting parts about a full year ago. It's been 19 months since I brewed at home.

Brew day on Sunday 7 December 2014 started really late, I had to pick up the kids from their grandparents and do some other stuff but in truth I was scared. Scared at how much more involved the process might be with 2 pumps…

Kauri Road Brewery 2.9

Posted by Barry on December 4, 2014 at 10:25pm 1 Comment

At long last.

Today the sparky came round and rewired my house switchboard. He also added a 32A supply and caravan outlet for the brewery.

So tonight, after almost a full year of buying up parts, relentless researching, construction, wiring, etc etc etc I fired the Kauri Road Brewery 2.0 into life.

Tonight was just a hot water run, autotuning the HLT PID and running both pumps and all hoses at 80degC.

Only 2 leaks, one at the outlet elbow…
