    What makes you try something different?

    Have done it and am currently drinking it. It’s a beaut of a beer

    So with isomerisation, in order to extract bitterness what is more important. The larger the boil volume or the gravity of that boil volume ? I’m learning as I go and always keen to assimilate new info

    Cheers Lusty. I just finished it there and sprinkled the yeast. I kind of winged it as I went along. I went with 25 gms chinook 30 mins , 25 gms azacca 10 mins , 10 gms cascade 5 mins and 25 gms azacca , 10 gms simcoe At flame out. Just for $hits and giggles. The brew day couldn’t have gone any smoother. I even used 15 litres of refrigerated Britta filtered water I prepped yesterday. Yeast was sprinkled as soon as I reached 21 litres , wort was 19 degrees. Took an OG and it was 1.063 as I added some dextrose. Fingers crossed it’s a good one

    So my Anarchy IPA pack arrived today. It comes with 75 gms of hops. 25 each of chinook ( boil 30 mins ) simcoe and cascade ( dry hop) recipe states that should come out at 40 ibu’s. Coopers APA is the base now I know Coopers are cost constrained so I went off and bought me 100 gms of azacca hops. 14-16% alpha acid. First time ever using but comes highly recommended from LHBS bloke. I want to get my IBUs up to up around 60 mark and also add some more flavour and aroma. Anyone care to advise me on adding some hop additions to the already added 25gms chinook to hit the desired bitterness and also add some lovely flavour and aroma cheers

    My NEIPA

    I find mine to be very fruity. I know US05 is known to be dry but I did dry hop with 200 grams so maybe that’s why im feeling the juice. What’s the preferred yeast for this style ?

    My NEIPA

    Hey mate. I have indeed. It’s delicious. Hoppy and fruity. Easy to drink. 6.8 % As it’s made with coopers APA extract the colour isn’t like what an all grain is like but that aside the taste is just as good. I paid $16 for a 500 ml can of NEIPA on the weekend and my one is nicer.
  12. Yip. I bought two rotm packs. Used us05 instead of the coopers commercial yeast. I got through the first batch within a month. It was very tasty but just wasn’t the same as the coopers release. I thought it was the us05. The Aramis hops were quite powerful. Anyway I’ve been away to Europe and I’ve brewed An NEIPA in the meantime so haven’t been into the rest of the vintage. But cracked one the weekend and it so now so much more closer to the coopers release.

    I brew it cos it tastes good and I’d a way better alternative to soft drink.
  14. I’ve left a few ESVA to mature. Cracked one the weekend and it’s miles better. It’s much more like the commercial version than it was when I cracked it early. The hops have died down a bit

    haha my tongue was placed firmly in cheek with that comment. Gaelic football is similar to the AFL, hence the international rules, but i just dont get how you are rewarded for catching a kick. I dont like sports where you cant contest for the ball, much like rugby league. AFL you can contest but i just dont get why you get a mark for a catch.
