    flavour improvement

    C'mon do it.. You will be very happy with the results. A little grain steep and a short hop boil really takes your kit and kilo to the next level.

    Bottle wash question

    I wash mine with dish soap after I pour, rinse like hell then leave to dry. Then they get another rinse before sanitising

    It's pretty easy to add flavor. If you can make tea and boil pasta you can steep grains and boil hops. It really doesn't take long either.

    Wheat Beer Failure

    How did it taste when bottling? Curious to know. I did "the hoff" from the site and just had my first bottle. Smells like bananas but tastes super refreshing and tart. Pretty happy with it

    Glad to hear you enjoyed it. A bit of hops and grain really bring kit beers alive. Try and control the temp with any method you can. If you can't there are some yeast which can ferment at higher temperature, saison for example

    I know gelatin wont hurt the yeast if you harvest straight up

    Interesting claim though, you'd think they would have some data to back it up. Notty's max ideal temp is 20 degrees. I don't think you'd do to much harm going a couple of degrees higher. You would be brave to go anywhere near 28 degrees with most ale yeast though

    Wheat Beer Failure

    Some people pay large sums of money to drink beer full of these Esters from oversized glasses in some of the trendy establishments around town.

    Replacement for Mr beer LME

    This is what I do. Pick some recipes I want to do from the website and "bulk" buy some hops and grains as well. Hoppy days will vacuum seal everything so it should last a while. https://hoppydaysbrewingsupplies.com.au

    Relax, have a beer.. Esters are desirable for a wheat beer with intended flavors of cloves and banana. Try to bring the Temps down and let fermentation run for 10-14 days to allow the yeast time to clean up and settle out before tasting.
