    Can I just pour the wort from the drum into the bucket, pitch the yeast, seal and wait to bottle, from the tap?
    Yes. If you pour from the drum, get a bit of splashing action on. It's good for the yeast.

    Thanks for the business! I really do appreciate it.

    The fermenting bucket sounds like a plan, i'm tired of pomping and splashing.

    I used with my last batch a 25L bucket, drilled a hole near the bottom and added a tap. Poured the contents of the drum into it - gooi yeast and seal lid with an airlock bubbler in the lid.

    Works well but I found the tap's mouth was a bit to large to fit into the 750ML glass bottles I used for bottling and more spillage than I would have liked occurred.



    But ja I bought a bottle filler with tap from brewmart - have yet to use it but I think it would make life a lot easier since it fills the bottle from the bottom up, so less foaming would happen - or so I hope.

    A fermenting/bottling bucket with a tap and bottling wand is the best R300 you'll ever spend if you plan on doing this for a while to come.

    Wynand makes these in small batches now, so it's back to the original price of 6 blue notes

    ^ Correcto!

    Also, I'm making custom brews and other styles as well. For example, I've got the ingredients for an Irish Red Ale I'm also making for a guy.

    And lastly, I've also done my first two successful whisky kits. High-gravity grain recipe with some added aroma for sweetness (theoretically, anyway), meant to be fermented and then distilled into whisky. So those running stills, take note...

    Please WhatsApp me with your interest guys. It's the easiest way for me to keep track of who wants what. Keep in mind the IRA takes waaaay more expensive malts AND hops, and it's not a Kilkenny. Kilkenny is a cream ale, canned with nitrogen. You're unfortunately not going to copy that with a homebrew can very easily.

    Regarding the storing of the beers - at room temperature I'd say around 3~4 months. In the fridge, around 6 months. We're entering the cooler months now so it can be pushed a little. Light is WAY more dangerous to the beer than heat.
