    Am looking for some advice on the manual programming side if things. I have a can of Mangrove Jack's Bavarian Wheat that I was going to give a go. Which manual program should I use? Lager, Ale, etc. After a bit of googling 21°c seems to be the approx temp. And while I am asking questions, will the droid still detect EOF even if it is not a brew print.

    Thanks for your guidance in advance.

    By no means an expert but I would go with Ale type setup and adjust the fermenting to 21

    It should detect EOF regardless of it being a brewprint or not.

    Keen to hear how you get on if I can branch out beyond brewprints to something worthy I'm keen as mustard.

    Just another request for some thoughts. I will be bottling the above Bavarian Wheat in the next couple of days but I will probably try and do 1 keg. Any thoughts on the priming rate? Will just one pouch be enough or maybe put two in for good measure?

    Primer pouches are hit and miss, one pouch per 5L is sufficient though.

    I will be heading down the path of 30g/L of Dextrose when I run out of primer pouches.

    If it were me I would use a pouch on the keg and grab some carbonation drops from a home brew store if possible for the bottles.

    You can always use the custom settings rather than using Ale or Lager settings, I have two Red IPA Wort kits brewing now with US-05 yeast, 1 I've set at 18 & 1 is fermenting at 20, interested to see how different temps might change the taste

    I wouldn't use more than 1 primer pouch per 5Lt keg, using 2 will most definitely over carb the keg & good chance you will get very frothy beer.
