Re: Conditioning Lager? I want fizzy lager!

you need to leave longer than a day, if your in a hurry you can roll/shake the keg and it will absorb it quicker but theres always the chance of over carbonation that way.

Re: Kit that tastes like...

You will probably need to get one with a proper lager yeast and a way of lowering you fermentation temp (old fridge etc) to get anything close to the lagers you’ve mentioned

wonder what will happen with hops as pretty much all breweries will have contracts for them.

Re: BrewBuilder High End vs SS Brewtech Kettle

I’m pretty sure both pots are from the same source, I’ve had both and quality on good is both, I’d say the etched markings are better on the ss brewtech and they have the rubber handles also

Re: Trub dam on the SS Brewtech 10gal kettle

There’s no actually filter on the ss brewtech they block quite a lot of pellet but your still going to get a good amount going through to the fermenter. I’ve never had a great issue with true in fermenter though. Just crash cool at the end

Re: Large scale stir plate

8 sachets in 20l will ferment out in about 2 hours 😂

I’m not experts but I think nanos buy yeasts ready to go or use dry yeast. I know a lot of the liquid yeast suppliers do yeast to order for breweries

Re: Minibrew, Braumeister or grainfather

i have a mini ssbrewtech kettle (20l) with a induction hob and do 10-12l biab
I dont drink/brew to often and it offers me a bit more choice.

but i agree with others that 5l isnt a great investment as the time difference is minimal
