  1. Capt. very nice looking beverage right there. (*thinks , mmm... hurry up technology, we need the intraweb tasting add-on, or an Aromaweb app ) light humour aside, nothing to report here and needing to find time to get some activity in the brew shed happing. been hot in SA, then extra days/hours at work ..ffs Going to keep at extract atm, focus on repeatability cause 75% of my attempts have been well drinkable from the kegs and 25% (same beers) good from the bottle. Quite glad I kegged up from the start tbh otherwise would probally not have persevered, All BOOMO - (based only on my opinion) regards Guvna
  2. *reads.... mmm.... makes shopping list notes.
  3. Good Beer imo, bit pricy i guess, dont mind the yellow Scorcher too! I often buty the CA session mid str. (all of this inbetween brewing of course ) and reckon its one of the better mid strentghs goin' round , only based on my taste.. cheers all Guv

  10. Hi Gully, I'm watching and interested in this thread, I'm wanting to attempt some yeast play. recent 2 brews have no dry hoppin so thinkin maybe time to try - slurry only or washin, then maybe harvesting both dry yeast - 1 x us05 and 1 notty - thinkin i'll save a 750 from the bottom of the FV of each in tha next cupla days cheers and regards Guv
  11. Several days later and ...........the US-05 went well and the Notty slightly quicker. both FV's @ 20c 05 - FG 1.054 - now 1.018 Notty - FG 1.051 - now 1.015 DryHopp & ColdCrash time.
  12. 2 brews in 2 days Both pimped up kit Pale Ale with hop boils. Almost the same apart from some variation of hops. 1 has US05, the Other Notty, so will interesting tosee how different they are. Used up the remainders of centenial for bittering in both and a mix of amarillo, cascade and galaxy for some flavouring. Looking forward to tasting and happy ther 50 ltrs in the pipeline plus 1 keg nearly carbed for Xmas, cheers Guvna
  13. Help ! - would silicone be safe to use? the FV and tap will be retired after. Just wanting to save the beer? Maybe keg lube smeared all around?
