    Toucan Stout

    Three down the stout today Coopers stout and liquid dark malt. 1 kg dex and 250 gms lactose. I rehydrates the Nottingham yeast but then realised the wort temp was 25. I pitched it anyway and put into the fridge. Temp was down to 20 degrees just after an hour so don’t think that pitching temp will majorly have an effect

    Toucan Stout

    I’ve read that when you use lactose you need a high attenuating yeast so the lactose shines through.

    Toucan Stout

    Hmmm food for though. I might just swap out the grains for lactose and see how she goes. I was going to use Nottingham yeast but lhbs said they are out. Whats a good yeast to use for stout?

    Seeing as we chew the fat on a lot of topics, I can’t recall seeing one on sport. Just wondering what sports and teams the fellow brewer supports im a big rugby union fan. Played it since I was six. Having moved to Perth , it isn’t as big as I thought it would be seeing as Australia were always one of the best teams when I was growing up I do like cricket too. Never played it and as I’m irish it’s strange for paddys to like it as it’s seen as a pommy sport AFL I can’t get into. Too stop start for my liking

    OK, What's The Plan For Tomorrow?

    I finished my NEIPA at the weekend. After five weeks it’s a shame how much the hop characteristics fade. Still very very drinkable but nothing like the juice bomb when you first pour it

    The homebrew economy

    The only way this story has a happy ending is if an Asian masseuse who homebrews on the side is desperate to get into kegging but is skint

    I Just use the ikea $1.99 swing top ones. They are perfect. I put a jasmin green tea bag in the bottles and fill and close. 5 days letter you have a fizzy brew
  13. Ok, I’m gonna buck the popular trend and say I find the toucan stout recipe a pretty average stout. I have it in the bottle about 6 months almost and had one Sunday and it’s still pretty malty to the point of overmalty and tastes nothing like the award winning stout we all know and love from the yellow labelled stubby i had a look at the recipe section on the site and Coopers say the closest kit to their commercial is the stout extract can and the dark malt liquid extract and commercial yeast anyone tried this? Is it as close to the real deal the toucan tastes like if you stuck a straw into one of your extract cans and started chugging

    Head retention

    This thread is hilarious reading with the Benny Hill tune in the background

    Head retention

    Nowhere near a brains trust but you would have to up the amount of liquid malt compared to dry as it also contains water. Not quite sure of the ratio
  17. There’s a good thread halfway down the page.

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

    I have the same hydrometer. Purchased it last month. However it gives me a reading of 1.006 in water. ( at the green line) why is the green line at 1.006 rather that 1.000 or am I reading it wrong

    Beer has a Sausage Taste

    I never heard it until I arrived at these here shores. Back home we say “ your man “ or “me man” here it’s old mate. “Old mate is out punching a durry on his smoko” sometimes I wonder if English is indeed the main vernacular here
