  1. Fill the keg, seal with the ball lock cap then connect gas at 30psi and purge out the oxygen by using the gas release value 3 or 4 times. Remove gas lead and store keg until required.
  2. Great looking drop, could nearly drink the picture. The Belgian is certainly in my top ten.

    Dry July

    Very hard to do Rob with such good brews in the cupboard and Droids.

    Dry July

    Now with a few in me now (Camilla’s Folly PA) I question the point of 1 month, no drink, the suffering, the dry out liver damage (😊) etc. See I do weekly no drink, I don’t drink on Tuesday, Thursday and yes Saturday. Admittedly Sunday, Wednesday and Friday can get a “bashing” however Monday could be none, some or a few. ( I like the choice). I’m m not having a go at the 1 month non drinking approach, but why suffer for so long? I only suffer a day here and there😅
  5. Is life funny, my Revolution Dark Lager was ready to keg am today, earlier than expected so I missed the pre dry hop and didn’t want to wait another 24hrs, so in went 2 x H1 hop sachets. (my plan worked)
  6. Hopefully will hear from Tech soon however it is good to have a hydrometer and you could confidently confirm end of fermentation. So I’d go get one. If you don’t know how to use it ask at brew shop or here. Cheers Mark.
  7. So good that in the Droid again today. Will not alter recipe ie no X5 (dextrose) and dry hop with Continental not Hallertau.
  8. Interesting that this one was Kegged today after 8days fermentation, it was with a 2020 yeast date. Therefore check the yeast and if 2020 I’d dry hop at 6days.
  9. Mmm, are you bottling in glass or kegging for Beerflo? Do you have a hydrometer? If so take a reading. in the meantime I’ll refer this to the BrewArt Tech. @BrewArtTech, Hi Liam. Brett’s Droid has been in the fermentation mode for 20days now with a US Chiller lager. The yeast may have been a bit suspect. Could you please advise as don’t want to suggest bottling. Thanks Mark
  10. Good mix of hops there, compliment each other well. Would suggest 10g each? As a dry hop.
  11. Now that is looking really good and I bet it’s smells great. You certainly can get a kick out of toying with recipes when they turn out ok and to expectations. The first pour I suspect would contaIn some extra sediment that sits in the tap, the last looks a ripper of a brew. In 2 weeks you must have a try. Cheers, Mark
  12. Yes do the same now however I’m not down the wine nobs “the grapes were grown on the left hand side of the second hill starting 3 rows down....” with the hops (yet🙂)
  13. Has been reported as and used as:-
  14. Yes. To be honest I keep 2 x each H liquid hop sachets in case I run out of the hop pellets needed or miss predicting the end of fermentation but doesn’t happen often. I like the pellets as imo they provide a more intense flavour and you can increase or reduce the amount to suit. In general I dry hop with 20g.
  15. The Lawn Mower is a ripper and agree with the Chez Pils andLighthouse. Haven’t tried the Aztec Cerveza yet. Out of interest in the main thread “BrewArt Banterl the is a top ten spreadsheet your welcome to add too. Cheers, Mark
  16. Hi Don and welcome. Certainly is. What styles do you enjoy?
  17. Dry hopped with 20g Centennial, 24 hours before fermentation ended, longer won’t hurt. Which was day 6. Your certainly correct about the unit and ingredients. Accurate temperature control makes a big difference, so glad plastic fermenters and frozen bottles of water in summer and blankets in winter are gone.☀️🌨
  18. I think you’ll love this one Dustin, the hops are a must.
  19. Fair enough, agree may need to leave it a bit longer.
  20. Interesting, in your terms what is “the home brew taste” I ask this because people have different interpretations.
  21. What a bloody top drop this one is. Kegged 14/6, to the Brewprint recipe other than instead of 3 x X2 did 2. Has it effected the taste, don’t think so. Just an enjoyable beer. Ps really suits me as don’t enjoy too much banana/esters flavours.
  22. Did an adaption of the Coopers homebrew recipe. 2 x E1, E5, X1, Y2 yeast, Ale mode, dry hop 12g willamette and qigong challenger hops. In droid 15/5, kegged 24/5 so now 8 weeks? Strong bitter after taste, a good strong ale. To be honest something I’d enjoy on a stinking hot day. Not that’s it’s for quaffing but a good pub beer.
  23. Drinking another batch, no one given this a go? Then there are so many.
  24. Well I have had to change a few things in my top 10 selections. This was (and I say was) a surprisingly exceptional drop. About 4 weeks it was just full of flavour (note: had no hallertau hops so substituted continental). On my list to do again next in. To be honest I thought it might have been “watery” an impression of some Asian style beers but certainly not with this one.
  25. Well that one has been and gone, such a nice drop it’s in a Droid as we speak.
