  1. From the Hazy IPA thread. “Ok , got this Hazy IPA recipe from Liam, to try. I have been asking Brewart to release this as a Brewprint. I think this is my favorite so far. Really nice Hazy. E5 (x3), X2 (x3), Y2, D6, D7 Brewing Program: Propagate: 22°C, Ferment: 18°C, Store: 4°C, Keg: 18°C, Dry Hop: Yes.”
  2. To help ease you mind “So, how long do hop pellets last? When properly vacuum-sealed, hop pellets should retain their flavor and bitterness for up to five years in the freezer, two to four years inside the fridge, and about four weeks at room temperature. After that, the flavor and aroma will start to degrade noticeably.l
  3. They certainly should be ok, I assume the fridge is around 4C, you extract most of the o2, all good to me.
  4. I do exactly the same as you. Remember chilled or frozen hops (like food) have little aroma until room temp (also in a compact pellet form). Bit like your beer, as it warms up flavour and aroma intensifies.
  5. Put in a jar with star san sanitiser for a few minutes, wring out with sanitised hands, put pellets in and away you go.
  6. I use these, goog for 30g:- https://www.ebay.com.au/itm/265031537666. ( note there are different sizes) With the Droid I’ve used both the ss ball and hop bags and never had the tap inlet block. I always drop to the back.
  7. Haven’t brew this one but will due to your high praise of it.
  8. Far Side and Insanity Streak are great cartoons, you picked a good name.
  9. Cracked this at 10 weeks, it has mellowed well. Very smooth easy drinking.
  10. Not all as a custom brew unless you want to use the dry hop notification function in the custom mode selection. Times for brew fermentation vary according to the recipe and yeast. As a guide you need to read the recipes in the BrewArt Print app where it tells you the what brewing mode to use and gives a rough indication to fermentation times, eg 9 to 12 days. Also look at the reviews further down the recipe page where brewers advise of their fermentation days. Once fermentation is complete it will stay in the ready to keg mode for 48hrs and then go to storage.
  11. Greg, very limited info however the password is your internet provider password however to help out go into BrewArt 101 and under the topic “Instructions” download the BeerDroid instruction manual, opening an account and wifi connection all in there. (There are a couple of ways to do it) Also if you search the word wifi in this app it will come up with posts by people with the same issues. Any problems let us know.
  12. Hi Robert, I’d wait for 6 weeks (including the 2 weeks carbonation) as I found at 4 weeks some further maturity was beneficial. I know it’s hard to hold off but worth the wait. Building stocks really help however if in a bit of trouble in that department, purchased brews is not an offence whilst waiting. Ps love the fire place.
  13. I’ve done this 3 times, he 5 day dry hop of a 10 day fermentation was great. After 5 days, fermentation isn’t at its most active so no harm done. You may find a shorter fermentation if your yeast is dated 2020, last one was only 8 days. Go for it. Cheers
  14. Nice setup and two Droids is a must. I note you also have the flow control taps, they are great and very handy. Your beers pouring well?
