    Sorry mate, didn’t see that you had already dry hopped it. But yeah, why not. I double dry hop single hopped beers. 70-90g, pull the first out and whack the second lot in of 70-90g then cold crash as I drop the second lot in. Gives a depth of aroma/flavour. Had a triple hopped Pale ale the other day that was on par with my double dry hopped beer.

    I hope it is better than mine Hox. Yours will definitely taste different to mine using schooner malt. The pale malt in that was the Ale malt from coopers not the BB malt. FYI. However, there was a reason that it was Ale malt and not Maris Otter or Schooner. Look forward to your tasting notes. Can’t wait.

    Water questions 2019

    Yeah that’s why I was saying it’s left out of the report. Because I filter my water I’m probably better to have that tested anyway rather than go off the report Think I might just bite the bullet and get the test kit online with the ph meter and what not cause it’s taking far too long for these to come back from my wife’s work

    Water questions 2019

    Good stuff @PaddyBrew2 I tried to get our water Corp to send precisely that however unfortunately for water ever reason in my area they only do the main testing, the secondary testing for all the beer Chem stuff was left out. I was spewing!

    Galaxy smash

    If you were going do a “SMaSH” beer I would just deviate from the rules slightly and use a nice clean bittering hop like warrior or magnum. In small amounts it won’t effect the taste of the Galaxy. So you’ll still get the effect of a SMaSH style beer. Ive also done an experiment a while back using Galaxy as the bittering hop in a couple of versions of a pacific ale Ive been working on. In one I used the full amount of a bittering charge of Galaxy. The other, I actually halved the bittering charge only. The one with half the bittering charge came out a delightful bitterness the full charge was very very bitter, almost undrinkable. The recipe from memory was aimed around 28 ibus so quite mild really. What im saying with this is that it’s other compounds making up the bitterness as well as the Alpha Acids which increases significantly the amount of bitterness on the tongue. I found it interesting anyway.
