General Homebrew Discussion / New York - and Beer
« on: June 19, 2010, 09:45:06 PM »
I am coming to America (for my first visit) - sometime this October.
I'll be in the New York area for a week or so; and I'd really love to get some "Beer" recommendations:-
I'm particularly looking for microbreweries (Brooklyn/Manhattan), brewing stores and, of course, bars.
Love to get some information before I go.
Thanks David

General Homebrew Discussion / Pomegranate Ale
« on: May 23, 2010, 12:06:13 PM »
Hi everybody.
Been super busy brewing away - here in Israel.
I'm looking for a simple ale (Pale Ale) recipe that has Pomegranate juice added - also maybe some honey.
Any suggestions or ideas?
Planing to add the fruit juice during the boil but would happily try something else.

Kegging and Bottling / Multiple Bottle Filler
« on: March 01, 2010, 05:11:52 AM »
I am looking for a 'device' that could fill a number of bottles at once - I've seen something for wine (think 'milking a cow') but not for beer. I'm not looking for automation - just something a little faster than individual bottles.
Any leads or suggestions?

General Homebrew Discussion / Temperature for Priming bottles
« on: February 22, 2010, 09:36:51 AM »
I'm a bit confused: I ferment at about 20 centigrade and store my finished bottles of beer at about 16 degrees;
my question is - during the 2 weeks of bottle priming, should the beer be at 16 or 20 degrees. I've tried both and not noticed much difference, but I'd really like to know which temperature is "better"

Pimp My System / Design for a 500 liter system
« on: February 14, 2010, 11:50:00 AM »
I am now starting to plan a 500 liter (about 130 gallons) system. (up from my current 50 liter system).
Does anybody have a design for this size of system - or the names of  suppliers/manufactures??
All, and any, advice is very welcome.

General Homebrew Discussion / pH Meters
« on: February 09, 2010, 11:07:22 PM »
There was a discussion a few months ago about storing (and calibrating) pH meters.
However, I'd really like recommendations about particular models - especially the Hanna Instruments Beer Testing models.
Any opinions??

Does anybody have personal experience from an on-line brewing course - Siebel, Davis etc??
If you do, please could you contact me - either through the forum or off-list.

Thank goodness for Amazon.
and the advice from all of you.
Ordered 3 thermometers - just keep on clicking and the orders keep on coming

General Homebrew Discussion / Re: Kosher Hops
« on: February 07, 2010, 12:33:27 PM »
So thanks for all the help and advice.
The big news of today is that we got a kosher certification for hops from a German farm. I think they have a fairly decent range of hops - so, at least, we can move ahead.
I'd still like to find hops from an American source - (come on Puterburgh Farm) and I'll keep trying  any, and all, leads that you guys pass on to me.
Anybody want to see what a Kosher certificate looks like??

General Homebrew Discussion / The BEST thermometer in the World
« on: February 06, 2010, 09:47:18 AM »
My thermometer died again yesterday - the second within a month!
The cheapies that I'm buying here ('cause that's all that's available) seem to attract moisture into their electronics and become totally useless very quickly.
I am looking for the best thermometer available - simple, reliable, metric scale and with a lifespan of more than 14 days (or 6 brews - whichever comes first)
Any recommendations - include please a link to on-line purchase plus "how long" you have owned your particular model.
