Yes, here. Haven’t tested for leaks yet! Took nearly 3 months to come. In case you’re in a hurry...
Kegerator is complete, just need to brew some beer to fill the corny kegs.
Imperial stout tried to escape today
Ha, ha. Happened to me before. Now, on 'big' beers I use a tube into pot of water to stop the krausen blowing the airlock off.
Big airlock though on that.
Nice ! Where are you getting your gas from ?
I'm using Sodastream bottles at the moment (as I have a Sodastream) but will be getting a 6kg bottle soonish.
Ah it just looks big from that angle (oi oiiii), it’s the smallest volume spiedel fermenter with their standard airlock.
I racked what was left in it into two 5 litre demijohns, and splashed a bit of whiskey into the one with tape on the handle.
Any idea how long they will last ?
Each cylinder is supposed to carbonate 60L of water for pop. I'm only using it to serve the beer.
I'm not using them to force carb the corny kegs. That can wait until I get a cheaper CO2 source.
I'm looking into co2 atm.
I probably should rig up some kind of extractor, I picked the wrong day for a 90 min boil !
You need a skylight...
A lot of the CO2 providers around Leeds are now only dealing with account customers only now due to C19. Which is a bit of a ball ache.
Can anyone point me to a good (and ideally relatively simple) NEIPA recipe?
I recently brewed the all grain NEIPA kit from brewstore. Which I was happy with, definitely my most successful brew so far.
I’d brew it again, but I’d rather get the grains from my local brew shop and they don’t give a breakdown of grains. And it would be good to experiment a bit.
I've not brewed this but the creator makes reliable recipes.
Cheers for that. Looks good, might well give it a go.
I'm also quite tempted by this one on the malt miller site. There are a couple more on the malt miller site, but that one looks fairly straightforward.
I was going to give this one a go as a first try on the grainfather as it’s relatively inexpensive if I fuck it up.

Could we do something similar here? Set a monthly beer style challenge?
My local homebrew club does monthly style challenges. We meet online at the moment with bottles being exchanged through the delivery guy from the bottle shop that usually hosts us. No reason why we can't, it's just more fun if you get to taste each others efforts.
That one looks good too. Might give it a go.
Can anyone recommend a PH meter?
I have a Dr. Meter one from Bezos. Seemed like a good compromise between the dirt cheap ones and the full on lab grade versions.
Evil, evil Amazon link.
Nice one thanks, that's basically what I'm after!
I really need a garage. With plumbing, electrical supply and an extraction hood.
Indoor brewing is getting a pain.
Oh, and storage space for the 'conditioning' bottles.
Although I'm probably going for more corny kegs as secondary fermenting / conditioning tanks as they take up less space.
If you do , make sure it's close to the house. I made the mistake of building my brewshed at the bottom of a 100ft garden.......
Crates of full bottles are surprisingly heavy when you are lugging them from the bottom of the garden to the spare room to condition 🤦♂️
Don't worry about formatting, just type in the text and we'll take care of making sense of it. We will auto-convert links, and if you put asterisks around words we will make them bold.
