Re: Feedback on No-Chill

To get "free" cubes, buy a Fresh Wort Kit if your LHBS supplies them. Ferment the FWK and then keep the cube. Avoiding Fails I've done lots of no-chills in the cube or what should be better termed, "made my own FWK's," and one problem I noticed (at great expense) is that the seals can fail on multip...

Re: Stainless hop basket

Got any pics or links Muggy? What were you using as a hopsock? (Hold on, just had a look and I suspect you mean this basket versus this sock . The socks are good for dry hopping. For hops in the boil, I just use my bag and let it "hang" around lazily in the boil but I do have some rope to hang it of...

Re: Western Australian BIABrewers and Events

Sorry you missed it Muggy. Let us know next time you're down and we'll have a beer then ;) Ended up with about ten of us. Tried Little Creatures new Elsie.It's an easy-drinking beer but with a lot of flavour. Should go down well with a lot of people who wouldn't normally delve into craft beer and, f...

Re: Brewing calculators and software

Why You Should Use the BIABacus The Cons - It doesn't look fancy - It looks scary - It's a spreadsheet (with no macros because that stuffs up cross-platform support) - Every recipe has to be saved as another spreadsheet - Other things like seeing only US or metric measurements (you always have both...

Re: East Fremantle Brew Day - Sun 19th

Good point on the sugar Lumpy, I'd forgotten about that :) As per attached file, grain needed would be 5863 grams (89.1% EIB) with a 90 minute boil. An extra hour of boiling would reduce grain required to 5476 grams (83.2% EIB). If it were all-grain, the numbers would be, 7920 grams (78.4% EIB) with...
