Re: 7pm U.K. time tonight: History of IPA -1700s to 2021 webinar

Thanks for this. I have had this running on the TV in the garden bar and it has been pretty interesting! Ron certainly likes a chat. [emoji1787]

Re: WLP550 yeast starter clumping

It certainly smells suitably phenolic and "Belgian" as usual, and yes I will have a taste. It just looks so different to usual I wonder if it is drifting due to being several generations on from when I bought it?

Re: WLP550 yeast starter clumping

I realise I have posted this in the wrong section. If a moderator could move it to the Yeast section, please, that may help!

Many thanks

WLP550 yeast starter clumping

Hi folks, I have made lots starters with various yeast strains over recent years. I tend to over-build so I can keep some in the fridge in a sanitised jar for next time and they always work well when woken from their slumber for another starter. Today I noticed the WLP550 (Achouffe strain) starter t...

Re: Crusader keg newbie -- advice on where and what to buy?

I too asked several suppliers for sankey keg o rings with no luck. I will keep trying though and share details if I find anything!

Re: GF connect software

I use Beersmith for recipes, import them into Graonfather site then use the Android app to connect for the brew day. The app used to be simple and has bloated over time with all kinds of community features I don't need. However it still works reliably for me, reconnecting after going out of range et...

Re: 30l pre-boil volume in GF30.

I often have around 30 litres pre-boil in mine. Just be ready to spray or pat down the hot break or use a little anti-foam.

Re: Crossmyloof Brewery Dry Yeast

I currently have a hoppy pale / APA on tap using their Haze yeast. Hop aroma comes through well and it is great, but has dropped perfectly clear which amused me!

Re: What fridges are we using?

Here's a tall (633mm) corny keg in my fridge. Loads of room - the disconnects only add a couple of cm above the corny handles. This is a fairly old under counter fridge where the height in front of the hump is 72cm. Another under counter fridge I have is 70cm. https://live.staticflickr.com/65535/49...

Re: What fridges are we using?

Hi, I have a Hotpoint RLA36 as mentioned above. Fits 2 cornie or 20l Sankey kegs easily. I believe the RLA34 is the same size. Bought mine nearly new on EBay for about £40. I will replace my other fridges with the same model when they eventually die! Matt Sent from my SM-G955F using Tapatalk Hi Dig...

Re: Red x lager?

I am currently sipping on a Red X single hop IPA and I think it is a great malt. I will be buying a 25kg sack soon. Lovely, balanced and malty presence and would be nice as a lager. It would be great to know how you get on. Matt Sent from my SM-G955F using Tapatalk Thank you for your thoughts. Woul...

Re: Liquid yeast viability.

Hello, Resurrecting this post as I have a very similar question. I have some liquid yeast manufactured in January (Imperial yeast, so theoretically they are double packs as they apparently start at 200 billion cells). I won't be able to brew with these until at least August maybe even September, so...
