    Hi, just tasting the 2nd brew - ( aka Guv's Brew 2 Session Ale in elswhere in threads) , it's come up trumps ? this was allready fermenting before I' tasted my first attempt, somehow this brew has a more present bittreness and pleasant flavour, and this time better carbed (raised psi from 10 -12 & dropped temp to 2c). just by sheer guess work and playing beersmith, ive think this brew suprcedes regards Guvna

    I see you are using the 'Dry Wit' of Seth Mcfarlane to accelerate the drying process

    Yes I heard the bullet smokers work well and don't use much fuel at all. You'll make some great food I'm sure!

    Thanks Headmaster I'm in the Dandenong Ranges east of Melbourne, so almost ideal weather for hops. I have two of each of these plants and last year they only sent up one main shoot. All of these have a few this year and the Goldings looks like it could go coco bananas. I reckon you could carefully dig up and cut off a couple of rhizomes away from the main crown and replant. Just get to it soon. Cheers Shamus

    My Cascade; Red Earth and Goldings that I planted last year, and had a harvest from them all, are up again this year too. Cascade Red Earth Goldings

    Hi Simon Nothing special with the recipe. Just the Coopers English Bitter kit and kilo of Light Dry Malt. I reckon it is one of the nicest of the Coopers kits on its own. Although I did split the wort into two 11.5 litre batches (by witchcraft and trickery). One I left plain and the other added some of my home grown Red Earth hop cones: 11g 5minute boil and left to steep for 20 minutes & 11g dry hopped on day three. I will have to do a side by side taste test. I've tried them separately and pretty happy with the result. The plain EB is less banana-ry than before. More consistent temperature than last time though. Cheers Shamus

    The POR I got about a month ago and planted threw up 2 shoots last week as well. From what I read online the crown maintenance and rhizome cutting should happen when they are still dormant but doubt it matters. They are supposed to be pretty resilient things

    Just adding another option to this list. I used to use Brewmate but it isn’t Mac compatible so have been using it on an old laptop at home. I recently started using Brewfather; a new online program that is really easy to use.
