  1. I’ve just tapped the keg on this one (8weeks) and it’s SUPER interesting. It pours with a massive, thick head which settles out and is very dark. It’s definitely on the sweeter side but has almost a Belgian / Trappist tone to the flavor. It’s got a deep mouthfeel and is very rich. Its unfortunate we’re just getting to summer because it tastes like a winter brew, but I’m really happy with this one.
  2. I've not heard anything from them yet... 🙁 My droid is sitting empty. Bit disappointing, really.
  3. Yeah, I'm in the US. I tried customer support here but just get a voicemail saying post a message here. If you could let them know somehow that would be most appreciated.
  4. Anyone know a way to reset the Droid to its factory default settings? Mine has lost its wifi connection and simply won't connect via WPS and refuses the password to connect manually.
  5. Not only did I not know the droid was designed to do this, I also didn’t know about bottom feeders and top feeders. I thought those were kinds of fish. Good info! Back to google! 😂
  6. I kegged a Ruby Porter today. I'm actually super excited how this is going to turn out as the EoF taste is really good. I added 95g maltodextrin to mix, and used Y7 instead of the Y4 that came with it. Why Y7 you ask? I'm not too sure, to be honest, but I can absolutely, positively tell you that it had nothing to do with me grabbing the wrong packet of yeast from the fridge. 🤫 Despite that, I'm looking forward to trying it in a couple of months, but I did notice the foam from fermentation had actually pushed out of the lid and congealed on back of the droid. A not inconsiderable amount, too. Has anyone else experienced this? I doubt it'll cause a problem for the beer but was curious what caused the excessive bubbling? Too much maltodextrin? The change in yeast?
  7. Thanks guys! Apologies for the endless stream of questions. 😂
  8. What about sitting at kegging temperature rather than storage? Does maturation only occur with the additional sugar in kegging?
  9. Is there any benefit (or I guess any drawback) to letting a beer sit in the droid after the end of fermentation? Do different flavors develop?
  10. Now I need to google Dry Hopping. That might be a rabbit hole I'm not ready to go down just yet.
  11. Did you just use the brewprint for the Pilsner, or are you altering it?
  12. As I’m now pretty much unemployed this seemed like a better use of the whiteboard in my office. 😂
  13. Kegged it just a couple of days ago actually. Seemed to take quite a while to finish fermenting and there was noticeably a lot more crud in the bottom of the droid after kegging. I’m sure it’s got a technical name. 😉 Taste was good and not as sweet as I expected. There’s still some bitter in there so I didn’t add any hops to the kegs. Was also dark-ish, but not porter like. First impressions at this stage is that at least I didn’t overdo the molasses. I’m going to give it at least a 6 week period before tapping I think. No idea why, just that so far the 2 week suggested time seems to end up being a little ‘thin’. The Aztec I recently did certainly benefited from an additional 2 weeks.
  14. Dissolved them straight into the water before adding the yeast and packages.
  15. Cool. Thanks for that. I've put 56g of Blackstrap molasses and the same of maltodextrin into the Dusk Cerveza Brewprint. Might end up being too sweet after fermentation I suppose. If that's the case I'll add some hops to the kegging maybe? We'll see what happens!
