General (General discussion, talk about anything.)
Tonker most beers and lagers are about 5% so 7.5% is still strong,
I’m a wino LOL !!!!!!!!!
I treated myself to 2 stainless steel fermenters a few months ago.
They can brew up to 30 litres so ideal for wine or beer.
They are 34cm (13.25”). in diameter, amd 58cm (23” ) tall, supported on 3 legs.
The bottom of the fermenter is cone shaped and this is where the sediment from brewing is collected .
Above the cone is a tap for pouring out your wine., so you don’t need to rack your wine into another vessel, very convenient.
You simply add your grape juice with some tepid water 25C is the ideal temp max.
Then add the yeast, if you want to raise the gravity then add 500g of sugar, clamp down the lid and walk away.
After approx 14 days check that fermentation is complete, the gravity shou;d be 1.000 or less or there should be no bubbles showing.
Add stabiliser and finings, leave for two days and then start supping, or if you’re posh, quaffing.
The costof the kit is £30 for about 20 to 21 litres from ‘Spitting Feathers’ in Bolton.
The fermemters were not cheap, £160 each from a company called Klarstein, the price has now gone up.
