    Todays tastings

    Feral Imperial East Coast IPA basically an imperial NEIPA. 8% NEIPA’s style means you don’t taste the alcohol. But coming in at 8% you definitely do taste it. A regular IIPA has that hit of bitterness to offset the alcohol but because of the style guidelines this just comes across confused. You get that Big malty hit , followed by the alcohol , then a big hit of fruit from the hops but no bitterness to balance all of the above. Overall not bad ,$26 for four cans. But definitely a case of the hype not living up to its expectations

    BREW DAY!! WATCHA' GOT, EH!? 2019

    That looks like a mammoth brew. On ya codge
  3. How hard can AG be right? It’s just soaking malt and boiling hops right. !! $570 and they still forgot some parts. The silicone bit for the top screen is missing but a lot of people don’t even use it. But I’ll still email and complain of course

    BRB, just popping off down the rabbit hole

    Yeah been reading about that but supposedly the 3.1 is pretty accurate. Especially when the recirc is on to keep it even. There’s a good YouTuber David Heath who did a test on the accuracy of temp and water volumes and the new rig is pretty accurate

    Finally found a use for the washing machine

    I always give mine a quick thirty minute wash on their own after brewing with some napisan. Works a treat aside from the lecture of wasting energy and carbon footprints from herself

    For any handy men out there. Is this normal for a ball valve tap. The the head just comes off if you pull it. It’s not screwed in

    Cooper Fermenter

    The bottles taking a bit longer to firm up is normal given the drop in temps. Might take a couple of weeks longer. Assuming all have been primed and lids fully sealed etc cant help you with the vinegar taste. That sucks

    Haha What a reference to eats shoots and leaves

    Coopers ESVA. Used the base ingredients but my hops were a mix of centennial and EKG. A really nice drop. Two weeks or so in the bottle.

    Only joking. Coopers say that perhaps a year and a half would be the max you store homebrew in PET. But she’ll be right. Kudos for storing beer that long

    You could passively agressively add 10 gms at 20 mins with another passive aggressive addition at 10 mins.

    I did the battleship bitter with centennial and EKG hops. It packs an orange citrus punch to mellow out the sweetness from the kit and grains. One of my favourite brews to date

    Refractometer- yay or nay

    So I’m about to put my order through to Kegland. I’m treating myself to the following Robobrew 3.1 matching jacket hop spider steel mash paddle 20 litre hop cube Refractometers are $26. My LHBS sells them for $40 Do you guys use one to measure pre and post boil or are they just a fancy extra and your hydrometer is just as useful ?
  24. See , that’s why happens when the big bucks start coming in. You get complacent
