    • To add, i haven’t decided yet, I may chuck a small amount in for that spice in at the 15min mark but I’m not sure yet. your comments are well and truely noted lusty
    • Precisely the reason why I’ve put this lot into a shorter time frame. I want to see how it goes steeping and cube hopping.  I didn’t do the brew day today so I might put some in for a 15 min Boole just to get that spice, but I do find I get a little from Warrior. And that’s why that’s in as the bittering hop
    • Meh. 2011 floods the woolies near us sold out of fresh milk three days before. The long life stuff was still checkers. The biggest issue here was power outages 😊 Our council gives out bottled water for drinking if the reticulation system is compromised in any way.  My camper trailer has 60l of drinking water on board, and enough power to run the beer fridge for a week.
    • I find it hilarious up north, a cyclone is called, the aisle with bottled water in it goes within a day. Chill out people. The next is the beer at the bottlo. They close those fairly quickly 
    • If you want a bit more spice from it, boil it longer, & I don't mean a long time. 30mins is plenty. A 10 minute addition also gives a nice light spice & good retained flavour (IMHO). Whirlpooling & dry hopping are great for the grapefruit & citrus aromas etc. Money well spent Capt. 😉 Edit: Thanks for the eye test as well! 😜 Cheers, Lusty.
