They look good NIK, although from what I've seen they're pretty expensive here. Are thru difficult to clean? They are not difficult to clean if after you empty them you give them a good rinse with plenty of water but it is difficult to dry them .Other than the price and the can taste after a long t...

I have 5 liter kegs (http://www.brupaks.com/images/products/MINIKEG%20STARTER%20KIT.jpg) and I use this tap http://www.fass-frisch.de/english/produkte/beerking.htm . When making real ales the only drawback of this system is that if you open the keg after 3-4 motnths you get can taste also you get a ...

We have totaly hijacked this therad sorry Aces... :blush: :blush: :blush: :blush: Pat probably you are right ,I have to try it first, to have more accurate opinion (my profesion is broadcasting electronics engineer and I am familiar with precision instruments so I am aware what to expect from a chea...

Nice posts Nik ;), I never even realised you had to calibrate the meters before every brew until BrickBrewHaus told me :P. Even after I did this, I still got pH readings way higher than what I used to get. Really need to get more strips. (And the meter only came with two calibration buffers - enoug...

Aces, one thing that worries me is the annode. I reckon before even worrying about the pH thing, get some of that hot water, let it cool and then taste it. Does it taste crap or okay? As for pH, I'm getting some more strips. The pH meter I bought a few months ago seems to give weird readings wherea...

Probably the long time that water sits inside the boiler with temperature above 50 C has the same effect as the 30 min boiling we can do to our brewing water to get rid off excess Alkalinity .This procedure also reduces the amount of Ca in the water .So logically if this can happen to water with low...

I expect my new toy arrival .Its a cheap digital ph meter but I think has better readibilty than ph stips .So I will conduct a mash ph experiment as BrickBrewHaus with the tap water of Athens .They will be ideally 2-3 potencial grain bills reperesenting the majority of the colour palete of the beer ...

nice video Nik. short and to the point. BTW, we checked out those plastic conical fermenters here too. they have those "ears" that you hang the fermenter by. the "ears" are hollow and seemed like a good place for the nasties to hide out in. Hi shib!! From the first look that seems to be the case wi...

Thanks for the kind words. @PP. I have bought this on my earlier days of brewing this is the one I use http://newstore.vvessel.com/ .It's a love and hate item, you can brew with safety 19 liters of beer otherwise it needs a blowoff valve construction .It's total volume is 25 liters. If you have a sp...

Thanks Bob I am looking forward for your video.The "brewing" area is my balcony I live in small apartment and after the former extract brewdays in the kitchen my wife decided to kick me out of her kingdom to mess up only an easy to clean space .Of course I took this as an oportunity to involve all g...

Untill Bob complete his video here is a short one http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=w4yx2O1oF9A&feature=relmfu it was made 6 months ago it's very small and of course is in Greek .The brewer is me ,the video is made by Miren and some how is a test video the sound is crap. Please judje it from the funny ...

I have nothing but to agree with the others .Playing with water may lead to serius screw up your brewday.Try to get a water report to have a ballpark to start with . There is a video here http://www.youtube.com/watch?feature=player_embedded&v=zJj__jEkFUE with John Plamer explaining some things and a...

Probably the moisture give more "strength" and in the same time elasticity to the hull and while milling the endosperm just slide out from the hull without breaking much and eventualy leads to less flour .But the drawback is that you need more power as Bob mentioned and in some cases if you use a we...

Linköping, Sweden water report: Ca: 18,6 ppm Mg: 2,5 ppm Na: 8,9 ppm Cl: 10,9 ppm Alkalinity CaCO3: 45,6 ppm pH: 8,4 To this I added for 27,5l of mash water: 7,2 g CaCO3 3,1 g CaCl 77% 2,1 g MgSO4 Hmmm...Any idea what the units were for Ca and Mg? Were they ppm or ppm as CaCO3? If ppm, then the Ca ...

Well done nik, The insulated vessels look fantastic for BIAB! It looks like it might have been tricky drilling through both layers of SS to install the ball valve and element. Any troubles with leaks? I'm guessing the legs and wiring box are just fixed with screws through the 1st layer of SS and in...

Some tips for reducing RA If you are not able to find distilled water or RO and you have to use your tap water is to boil it for 30 minutes after that you need to transfer it to a clean vessel and clean your pot from the residues and after that you transfer again and continue your brewing routine. T...
