"I used to use a 50l keg mash tun and it was fine for most 50l batches, I used to boil in 2 x 30l kettles for speed and being able to do different hop combos.  maybe too small if you want to do 50l of imperial stout but fine if wanted 305l of…"

Requirements for opening a nano-brewery at home?

Posted by Nicolas Tassitani on June 28, 2019 at 1:56pm 0 Comments

Hi,

 

I'd like to start brewing commercially at home and I’d like to know if somebody went through the process of getting the licences and permits to do so.

 

I’m based in Auckland (North Shore) and I have a 80 litres electric brewing system.

 

I did some research and so far it seems that I need to:

- comply and register under Food National Programme 3

- get a customs-controlled area (CCA) licence

 

Do I need an…

Electric Control Panel

Hello fellow brewers,

Thought it a good idea to put it out to the wider brewing community, is there a production made off the shelf electric control panel [nz or aus made] available on the NZ market? I've done some searching and it doesn't look good, ie there is nothing out there. 

following this line of questioning, if one was available though what would be a fair price to pay for it?

Can I make a hop essence

Posted by Paul Ware on December 16, 2018 at 12:14pm 0 Comments

Hi, I am a hop fiend and have just made a couple of beer using hops in a muslim sock for dry hopping and the result was unimpressionable. Question is can I make an essence i.e. hops into cool water to extract the aroma and flavour (not bitterness) and add the essence to the keg? If so what temperature I can use cooled boiled water and of course test it in the beer first so I don't ruin the keg? Anyone done this? 

Why not 30L

Posted by Greg Hillman on November 25, 2018 at 10:58am 1 Comment

Hi Everyone. 

New to this site, Been a kit brewer for some years now. 

Question: Can you brew to the full 30litres in the plastic fermenters with making adjustments by adding hops and/or malt to keep taste.

Cheers
