Re: Hobgoblin Clone - Brew Swap (UK)

The recipe we all used is in the thread. This was apart from the fun of brewing, the main point.

We all used as much as we could, the same recipe.

I have just finished the last bottle, nearly 4 years old and still good 😀

Fermenting in the Kettle

Hi, I know this was discussed in this post http://www.biabrewer.info/viewtopic.php?f=37&t=1914 But that was 4 years ago, I was wondering if anyone had looked into it since then. I was brewing a Hobgoblin clone (one of my favourite recipes) this weekend and my fermenter started to leak, so I transfer...

Re: Low / No Alcohol beer ?

Hi JayP I too have heard of the reheat after fermentation (before bottling) as a reliable method to reduce the final ABV but I am not sure as to what the temp should be or for how long, Do not want to damage the hop aroma or the flavour profile, but I might try it my self on my first brew in 2 years...

Dried Yeast Starters ?

Why can't Dried yeast be used to make a Starter?  I have read lots and lots of posts on multiple sites stating that you cannot use a Dried Yeast to make a Starter Does anyone know why? Yeast is hard to come by where I live and it would be good if I could split a packet, create a Starter and save the...

I for one, REALLY appreciate your effort. I followed with great interest your original thread, and am looking to find away of incorporating the SmartPID into my own home brewery. A simple question, if I may, is there way, other that to reprogram it for each brew to set up multiple 'recipes' that can...

Looks very very good, looking forward to the next post. I love the fact IR can control both a kettle and a fermenter (chamber) and is Arduino compliant.

Will it come with the sketch and drivers?

I print out the BIABacus file, write my notes on tne back, then write them up later into the chalkboard and the brew day checklist (I use both). That way I have them ready for the next time I brew that recipe. I also print out a unique copy of any recipe I repeat so I can compare results. But I do n...

Welcome Tullaroan, sounds like you are well on your way. I too went with a 40l boiler, (mine's a Burco) and modified it to give a constant boil. Love it. Works really well. Are you looking to add it a 'space blanket' to help it retain heat during the mash. I can reconmend using the padded foil insul...

I have to say folks, I have a few left and cracked one open the other day. Not bad, not too bad at all.

Stored them in my cold store, so should have not been too many wild temp, variations, but still quite pleased.

I really enjoyed taking part, and I leaned a lot from the rest of the group.

Garvin, Welcome to the Forum. I second Joshua thoughts . I too was put off by the costs of going all grain and a secret fear that it would be too complicated,maur the BIAB method really does work to make excellent beer. I certainly have been able to hold my own at my old club. The equipment is much ...

Perfect,

Thanks everyone.

I will give each of the recipes a try. Can easily do a micro batch of each to see how they work out.. I need the practice, both with BIABacus and the brewing.

Thanks again.
