  1. Nah, that much foam is a killer in a keg sadly. It may have been something I wanted to salvage if it tasted OK but I sampled off both keg varieties and they are not worth the hassle of trying to save, if they were I would have gotten them down to three degrees, switched off the flo and poured a couple of pints to get it OK but even when I was doing that with other over carbonated brews, it was pouring 50/50, this was just ice cream. Anyways, the great can experiment is almost done, just the bottles I did last week now and they can sit
  2. Ha, have had the Crown lager in the Brewflo and it pours foam. Had a feeling this may happen because the pour from the bottles were a strong, lasting head but an awful taste, going to let this settle have a taste and cut my losses. No point pouring a beer and letting it settle for five, re pour, let it settle for 5, re pour, let it settle and then drink. Now, for those who keg and use a Brewflo, if you are to empty a keg, do not unscrew the collar, or undo the orange or black lug, just fix a beer line into the orange lug and let it pour out in a timely manner, with no extra cleaning
  3. Well my good man, I have a Belgian Lager, Cooper Artisan, Weisbeer and Pale in front of it, so I'm an even money bet, well maybe 40-60
  4. This is the second beer tonight, the one I threw hops pellets in without mesh. Pretty clear beer to be honest, not Pale Ale, may try Galaxy in it next time. In saying that though, it was more than drinkable and different from the pilsners I usually drink. Its pretty cool that even when you bugger up a brew, it still comes up pretty good
  5. So, I tried one of these tonight and that is a bitter beer. Bottled on the 8th last month and very enjoyable to drink, may be me but I enjoy that sort of flavour. That has definitely given it the oomph it needed that I used to complain about, nice flavoured beer that will mellow the bitterness a little with a few weeks secondary to establish a very nice beer...or I drink it all this weekend Interesting to see what another few weeks does to it
  6. The bags I get are vacuumed sealed inside a zip lock bag, the Brew Shop guy told me to keep it in the freezer after it was opened
  7. Looking at Ebay, there is likely to be a few purchases off there too
  8. He has the bigger packs as well which seemed to cost not much more
  9. Yeah I have but I still have the last three prints left with hop pouches still with them, I have been half an halfing with pouches and pellets ( I will have to try the Czech Pils which is at 6.5 weeks secondary and the Pale Ale this week to ascertain how that has gone. I think I will be happy with the results and if that is the case, a couple of hop pouches is 7-8 bucks...where even if I am just buying hops in 25gms packs, it's the same price
  10. Yeah That's what I'd be looking at. What I am planning to do with my next order is to stop ordering pouches and start dry hopping using the exact type of hops they have in the brewprint ( obviously, with the way I drink, it means a lot of Saaz). I mean, I think I have gotten some excellent results the second half of the year with the hops pouches but I'd hope to get even better.
  11. Hey, did you dry hop this one? Have a brewprint of this left and that comes without hops, something I think it lacked with the keg I drank, I was thinking of putting in some Hallertau hops with it
  12. I haven't managed it yet but I have had the issue with the beer seeping out the top
  13. German Weisbeer would be the closest but it is still a way off Blue Moon. If you want to make that one contact Liam at Brewart and he can take you through a step by step instruction info@brewart.com, or @Barrelboy may know how to get the flavours right for it
  14. You may have to give both the orange and black lugs an extra turn to stop the leak. if you have hand tightened it as far as you can, then an extra turn with pliers is the next step.
