Pre-boil refractometer readings?

Started this discussion. Last reply by Kevin Sharp Jul 26, 2016. 6 Replies

I've done half a dozen or so brews since buying a refractometer to measure my pre-boil gravity. The last 3-4 of them the pre-boil sample has come up with a reading that has been a good 4-5 points…Continue

Barleywine Fermentation

Started this discussion. Last reply by David R Apr 5, 2016. 2 Replies

I'm brewing my first barleywine at the moment, recipe below, and I've read a lot about the time it takes for such strong beers to ferment and how under-attenuation can be an issue. Well, I checked it…Continue

Weldless fitting not sealing.

Started this discussion. Last reply by Nicholas Jones Jan 31, 2016. 7 Replies

I'm struggling to get the weldless ball valve to seal on my Grainfather urn. I've never used one before, and had imagined it would have an O-ring and washer on each side of the wall, but it was only…Continue

Lots of hops, disappointing flavour/aroma?

Started this discussion. Last reply by Crusader-Rob Feb 9, 2016. 22 Replies

On paper, the last IPA I brewed should have been an absolute cracker. 1.066 OG, Columbus for bittering, 60g Mosaic/Simcoe/Amarillo at 10min, 180g at 0 (steeped for 5 minutes before cooling to 80C and…Continue

David R replied to Richard Deeble's discussion Unfashionable NZ Hops
"Sounds intriguing, let me know what you come up with! Now you've got me thinking of using the built-up cake of 002 to brew something stronger, IENZIPA?! I've never used 002 before, I'm guessing a diacetyl rest is a must then?"

David R replied to Richard Deeble's discussion Unfashionable NZ Hops
"Stumbled across this thread recently so I thought I'd bump it back up. After spending nearly $60 on hops for my most recent IPA (23L batch with Citra, Mosaic and Sauvin) I decided I'd do a couple of English-style beers for a change.…"

"Just adding an update to an old conversation..   I see that Wagon brewing has a clone kit for this (see  http://www.wagonbrewing.co.nz/panhead-port-road-clone ),  I see the use of carahell instead of carapils plus a more of a hop…"

David R replied to Crusader-Rob's discussion NEIPA's
"Good little write up. I used it in an English IPA a while back and it produced one of the most amazingly clear beers I've brewed straight out of the fermenter (I only ever use koppafloc in the boil for finings). I've got a good amount of…"

David R replied to Crusader-Rob's discussion NEIPA's
"Heck, 35% wheat/oats, how was the sparge? As someone who usually cant be bothered with the hassle/cost of liquid yeasts it'd be nice to have a good dry yeast option for this kind of beer so I'll be interested to see how it turns out."

David R replied to Crusader-Rob's discussion NEIPA's
"I preferred 1318 to WLP008, though both turned out good. I used 80% Gladields pale, 10% wheat and 10% flaked oats. I did FWH with Sauvin then big whirlpool with equal parts of Sauvin, Simcoe, Amarillo and Citra, same again for the dry hops, 10g/L…"

David R replied to Grant Abbott's discussion crash cooling question
"I've never bothered going that far, probably no harm in it though. Is it necessary? Look at it this way; a commonly used figure is 4% shrinkage when chilling wort from boiling to fermenting temperature. So if we [generously] say 2% further…"

David R replied to Cain Harland's discussion Conan yeast
"That's what I was about to ask Carl, I recently did a beer with 1318 and really liked it, but it certainly does add to the cost of the beer if you only use it once. I just bought a 3L flask and I was wondering about making a starter then…"

David R replied to Peter Smith's discussion Garage Project - Angry Peaches Clone in the group Clone Brews
""The real bottles of AP tend to be bitter bombs, try a bottle next to a draught pint to see what I mean." Interesting observation, I had a similar feeling about Los Lobos after trying it on tap at Beervana last year and then in cans later…"

David R replied to David R's discussion Gladfields Redback
"Looks good to me too, though some may say it's more of am American Amber looking grainbill with all that crystal. Clean fermentation and a big dose of fruity hops at whirlpool and dry hop, don't go overboard on the IBUs and you'll…"
