    RDWHAHB - What Are You Drinking in 2018?

    No chill

    I’m gonna take the plunge into AG when I get back from Ireland in January. Gonna get me a robobrew. Obviously no chill is big here in Aus and I’ve been reading up on it. I read an article on brulosophy where old mate advocates this method for malt driven beers but states to steer well away when brewing hop bombs ipa’s etc which are my favourite. I know there are some calculations done for hop additions during the boil when doing no chill but just wanted to ask the wider community who no chill , how they find it when doing IPAs etc ?

    One thing I don’t like about the IPA extract is the colour. PB2 says if the tin is fresh it won’t go that dark but every tin I’ve used has come out that colour despite having a long shelf life left. I’m gonna use the APA as my base from now on as it gives that great golden colour and also you can be more experimental with your hops as it’s not as pre hopped as the IPA

    The outlaws asked me to a chrissy brew for them. I’m off to Ireland for the holidays but I said I’d grant them their wish. Threw down a hoppy pale ale. Coopers APA , 1.5 kilos DME , boiled and dry hopped with citra and Amarillo, 100 gms i went all out and bought a case of stubby’s, a capper and even printed off some labels for them. I was astounded when I read about the milk trick for the labels. It actually works a lot of effort but feck it, it’s christmas fruits of my labour
  7. I have the Downhill IPA recipe of the month fermenting. In there about six days. I’m on my phone so can’t post the link but the hops are 50 gms of pacific jade for 10 mins and 25 gms Amarillo at flameout. There is no dry hop. I just checked and there is a great Krausen but I had a little sniff and it’s missing that great hop aroma. I’m thinking of going to the LHBS tomorrow and chucking in 100 gms of one of the C hops yay or nay yay because hops rule nay because the recipe is made with coopers hefe wheat extract and k97 dry yeast so a dry hop might screw things up. I know coopers have to be cost effective but I can’t see any harm in a cheeky dry hop thoughts ?

    Wow. That’s next level $hit right there. I’m in Perth. My water tastes alright I suppose. How do you obtain your profile. Had a look at the watercorp website but it’s vague to say the least if chloramine is present in the suburb I live

    How does one estimate the water treating agents used in the recipe

    Partial mash + extract IIPA HELP

    Can I ask you a question about the water. How many litres do you initially mash with? how many litres do you sparge with and how many litres do you then top up with ?
