Hi Neil,

I have completed the following brewprints Australian Larger and Aztec Cerveza and a Bombshell Blonde , both taste good but no carbonation when dispensing from the BrewFlow, when sitting the beer looks flat and at the price of brewprints I am in the process of the following

I put down a Deliverance Ultra , using %50 of the wort, storing the other, 

500g Dextrose, Steel Pac using 50%  and 15 g Morgans yeast, I have bottled with 2 carbonation drops and the carbonation is good so is the taste

Currently I have Beer Makers Bitter using  using %50 of the wort, storing the other,  500g Dextrose, and 15 g Morgans yeast,, when this is ready for bottling I will uses 80 g of dextrose to carbonate etc as I want to use my kegs with the BrewFlow

The above custom brews have been set to the following, Propagation 22 deg  C, Fermentation 12 deg C, Bottling 18 deg C

FYI

Have kegged a 5 litre of Australian Larger and carbonated the keg with 40 grams of dextrose (still waiting to see how it comes out of the brew flow

Will give some feed back on the outcomes

Thanks Kevin, very interesting stuff. I have used a Deutsch lager for first brew, but have 3 x 20l worts sitting ready to go. But why the Dextrose?

Would be very interested if you think the wort route is better than the kit. You would think so! I also have a 5litre Ikegger but need to fix a seal first...................I will get there!

I’ve done Fresh Wort Kits from All Inn Brewing Co, you shouldn’t need to add anything but yeast to the Wort, usually the label will recommend a yeast to use like US-05 for Ales or S-04 for Lager which you can get from a local home brew store.

Thanks. And thanks for letting me know about Allin Brewing. I’ve asked if they ship to Adelaide, as they have a great range of worts 

Check your local Home Brew Shop as they might stock some FWK from All Inn or other breweries , I’m in Vic & my local stocks a lot of the All Inn kits so will save you postage as they cost almost double when you include shipping

You can also make 1/2 wort brews with kit recipes, add to Beerdroid, add yeast and set suitable brewing program. I use 1/2 a tin putting the other 1/2 in the fridge for the next brew. If you have a vacuum sealer you can do this, but is ok without.
