Hi Fellow brewers. I have watched a few of Gash's vid on youtube- he is a bit of a hoot eh. Anyway I have just mooved from extract to grain ( when the robo shows up that is) so any advise will be appreciated. I use rain water and I am not sure what defaults to put in the online calculaters, maybe just 0 for all and measure the ph after the grain is added?. Ferment & dispense all from the same vessel via a kegerator and brew kegs by williamswarn

G'day mate! I havent used rainwater myself, but its worth a try, I've heard of other people using it successfully. You may want to filter it? Just a regular filter, but probably not necessary either if you think its in good nick. You may want to check mash pH although without getting too technical to start with there is a product you can buy called 5.2 pH Stabilizer which might help with the pH if it needs it, it wont hurt in any case. Also maybe add a teaspoon or so of calcium chloride to enhance the malty character of a beer, while calcium sulphate will bring out hop character, but might be worth just seeing how you go first.

Cheers Johno!

Bottled my Scottish ale and all went very well, washed 2 jars of yeast and that looks good too. Brew day tomorrow just preparing the liquor now. Was a bit worried about doing the yeast thing again but decided to get back on the pony and move forward. :D

Hi Paul, Ive posted a new post topic about Mauribrew yeast but seems to be Lager, Wheat and Engish style. :D

Hi Paul, a quick google tells me that its a bakers yeast. I honestly dont know if its suitable for brewing or what strain. Will try and find out, good question though, cheers. :D

Have you ever used Mauri yeast? Is it like an English or American ale yeast?
