    What's in your fermenter? 2019

    Shamus - I’m looking for a good recipe to use my can of EB and I have some EKG hops so very interested to know how your brew goes. Are you doing a dry hop?

    Advice sought on dry hopping

    Genius idea!

    Sour Smell

    Checked the brew tonight and the sour smell is not so bad now - took an SG sample and tasted it and it tastes great - probably the best tasting brew yet at the stage of fermentation. So I think it’s OK.

    Beer Belly website has them in stock - http://shop.beerbelly.com.au/bramling-cross-hops-100gm.html No idea about the Tasmania query...

    Sour Smell

    Opened the brew fridge this morning and was hit with a really strong sour smell coming from the dark ale + Lager Toucan brew - could this be a sign of infection? I lifted the lid to have a look inside and it looks the same as most earlier brews at this stage of fermentation (day 5). I haven’t noticed this smell from any earlier brews.

    I too have a porter in the FV - 8.5ltr British Bulldog recipe - first time using Nottingham yeast, and first time rehydrating - seemed to go ok and fermentation activity began a bit faster than usual so very happy with that. Also have a Dark Ale + Lager Toucan bubbling away in the large fermenter. I better start cleaning some bottles...
  9. The photo might not show it but they don’t look crushed to me - they look they’ve gotten wet - I would’ve thought they would lose some of their effectiveness if they had been wet then dried out - which is how they look to me... But if the general consensus is that they’ll be fine then I’ll just use them. @PB2 - would be interested to hear your thoughts?
  10. Received my XPA ROTM ingredients today - one pack of the Simcoe hops look like this - I should send these back, right??

    Toucan Dark Ale + Lager + BE3

    Shamus should get the thanks for the research! Let me know how it goes - it’s on my list but there are a few in front of it! Why is it that the list just grows? The more beers I brew, the more beers get added to the list...

    Toucan Dark Ale + Lager + BE3

    Ah! Just looked at the SMOTY Ale recipe - that answers the pale ale question then!

    Toucan Dark Ale + Lager + BE3

    I wondered the same actually Muzzy as I had a can of pale ale - but I’ve seen a few dark ale + lager recommendations on the forum so I went with that. Would be good to know about the pale though for next time.
