  1. Now you just need a sunny summer afternoon in a Beer garden (and a straw) for the full Berliner experience. Great that you tried and liked it.

  2. @Brauhaus Fritz, Berliner Weisse with SodaStream Cranberry & Raspberry flavouring. Nice cranberry and raspberry aroma. Interesting flavour. The sweetness of the flavouring has reduced the sourness, but it is still there. There is a floral nature to the flavour. Maybe less flavouring would be better. Still, very drinkable.

  3. Big Shed Brewing - Boozy Fruit - New England IPA Definite Juicy Fruit aroma. Pretty amazing really. Very similar in flavour with a bitterness that gives you a whack. Hides its 6.2% ABV very well. It has Lactose in it. I think the amount must be pretty high to retain a high sweetness.

  6. An early taste of the most recent English Bitter. In a new vessel too! Not as good as the first two, but still a bit young. It’s very bitter. Goes by the festive name of Prickly Whiskers

  7. It will be fine to boil dry malt. A real concern is that boiling dry malt or liquid malt will darken it. Dry or Liquid Extract has already been through a boil to sanitise it. The boil will have taken the Extract to a certain colour already. Boiling it further will make it a bit darker. However, it will not turn a Light Dry Malt into a Porter coloured beer in an hour. Also, a boil can be done in 30 minutes or even less, depending on what hops you are using and what IBU's you are after. Boiling a dry malt or an unhopped extract is called Extract Brewing. It seems more popular in the US. It suits folks who do not have the capacity, or who do not want to bother, to mash their own grains. There are a few Coopers recipes that use dry or unhopped liquid extract. The various Coopers hopped extracts make it even easier for us. No need for a mash or a boil.

  8. If you want to understand the flavour profile of a hop, a pre-hopped kit is probably not the best option. Simply because you already have a different hop in the mix and you don't get the "real" picture. Short of brewing all grain, un-hopped extract might be your best option. That way you can get a much better understanding of things. You could use like 10g for a 60 minute boil, 20g for 20 minutes and another 20g for a 20 minute hopstand. All depending on your desired level of bitterness etc. Use another 50g to dry hop. If you really need a kit, do a steep of 20g and then do the dry hopping. So essentially you'd leave the hops in the kit for bittering and then try to get some Simcoe flavour into the beer. Hope this helps
