  1. You have done the right thing changing back to keg mode, why it went to store? should not happen for 48hrs. See how your next brew goes. Cheers Mark
  2. No problems Joe, dry hopping is fairly easy so when your ready. 3 liquid sachets should give it a nice hit, won’t be overpowering and will suit this ale. Cheers Mark
  3. I take it that your in America as well as Brewprints here ok.?
  4. Sorry Nick, the Boags is there, didn’t see it under the main title. Looks good, personally I would use all malt. The hops are a good choice to dry hop. No mention of yeast, use saflager and brew in lager mode.
  5. Hi Alan. Same on the Australian ordering site. Normally will say “out of stock” so could well be a website bug. I’ll tag the store to notify. Cheers Mark @BrewArt Team for info/attention. Thanks
  6. Won’t be any problems with the hops or the time in bottling. Are you going to let it go into store mode or leave at keg temp?
  7. Recipes typical from brew shops and nothing wrong with them other than where dextrose is stated just substitute with a light dry malt extract, just don’t delete and use nothing else. Be aware that a lot of brew boosters or enhances contain malt, dextrose and maltodextrin ( non fermentable used mainly for head retention and mouthfeel) So no issues using the recipes. The Boags ones not there however would say no issues if. following above. Cheers Mark
  8. Hi Nicholas, welcome and great you have got the Beerdroid and Brewflo, top units. The American Pale Ale is direct from BrewArt Is is top drop. You don’t have to worry about dextrose with the BrewArt ingredients as it is the X5 and not to many recipes call for it. If they do I substitute an X1. A lot of us don’t purchase the Brewprint kits as such but just buy the BrewArt ingredients. Cheers Mark (and ask away with any questions) Ps where abouts are you.?
  9. Proof is in the pudding, next time you do a can (think you like Morgan’s) do a recipe that calls for dextrose and substitute it for light dry malt extra or X1.
  10. Hi Terry, hows it all going? Did you eventually do the English Bitter? Enjoying one now.
  11. With this Coopers Session Ale rather than just 20g of galaxy I dry hopped with 18g of galaxy and 12g of Amarillo. Boy at nearly four weeks this has a powerful but lovely fruit/passion fruit after taste with a nice bitter finish. Will leave for another week or so if I can 🤭🤔
  12. You’ll probably find the head will be less after the first couple of pours. If your not doing it I find with a bit extra carbonation if I tilt the glass at nearly 90 degrees to the tap and slowly straight as it hits the lip the head will be reduced quite a bit. Plus very cold glasses. It certainly looks good and the molasses would give that Trappist tone to the flavour. Cheers Mark Not to late to brew another if you rate it highl6.
  13. Still a few weeks before I try it, will be interested as to the Co2 carbonation via bottle gas will have. I’ll stick with 12g of each hop for proper evaluation.
  14. Thought I raise this thread up again. As things are starting to open up so to speak in Adelaide me and the good women had a counter meal at the Middle Pub, Willunga (Rob will know) top meals around the $19 mark however for once in my life I didn’t complain about the craft brewery Pilsner on tap at $9 pint, 1) it was a top drop 2) the pub first opening deserved it 3) just happy to be out so who gives a s...
  15. What a bloody top drop, 5 weeks kegged.
  16. How’s it all going Daz, how did your 50/25/25 turn out? Put the Lighthouse in the droid today, going to dry hop day 6 with 50/50 galaxy and simcoe.
  17. Kegged today after a 9 day fermentation, nice and slow and easy. Will look forward to this particularly without the dextrose. (imo opinion dextrose plays a big part in that home brew “tang” with can kits. When I substitute it with malt the difference was so noticeable)
  18. Hi Nicholas, Mark here and another welcome to you. It’s all a learning curve and this forum is good for pre or post questioning. Mistakes happen and we have all done them. As you put the primer in at the beginning of fermentation the yeast will have “eaten” it as it’s a sugar. Suggest with the last keg you add the 40g of sugar as suggested by Paul, wait 2 weeks and give it go. Ps. Being in America is no problems with keeping in contact, some times the difference in the time zone can delay replies but it still works. Cheers Mark.
  19. Just finished 10l of Stone and Wood Pacific Ale and tried simcoe rather than the galaxy for dry hopping. Don’t get me wrong galaxy is a top hop however a lot of the recipes call for it so I’m trying other hops that are comparable. The simcoe was a pleasant suprise and will certainly use it again. Quite strong in fruit/berry flavour. 20g of pellets suited fine.
  20. Will be interested in your opinion as I’m not sure about “extra” esters.
  21. Droids love sugar, just ask the overflow. I enjoy a nice draught cider every now and again. Do you need apple juice for the kit?
