  1. Here's my modified recipe of an all grain version of Hobgoblin. A very tasty English Ale 23 Litre Batch. ABV 5%. 30 IBUs. 40 EBC colour 5.83 kg Pale Malt, Maris Otter 0.34 kg Crystal, Medium 0.11 kg Black Malt 0.06 kg Chocolate Malt Pale 58.29 g Fuggles [3.90 %] - Boil 60.0 min 15.90 g Fuggles [3.90 %] - Boil 20.0 min 14.84 g Styrian Goldings [4.70 %] - Boil 20.0 min 1.00 Items Whirlfloc Tablet (Boil 15.0 mins) 15.00 g Fuggles [3.90 %] - Boil 0.0 min 14.00 g Styrian Goldings [4.70 %] - Boil 0.0 min 1.0 pkg Ringwood Ale (Wyeast Labs #1187)
  2. I recently made a Hobgoblin AG that uses a fair bit of Fuggles with Styrian Goldings. Cubing it this weekend sometime. Looking very promising so far.
  3. Made a double batch of this a couple of weeks ago, it's in the cubes and I'm salivating just thinking about it. Upon cubing it tasted amazing. I did a partial mash using Coopers' LME cans so it ends up darker than intended, which is already quite dark for the style but I'm not too fussed about a couple of shades of darkness. I did a BIAB and batch sparge. OG was perfect. Based on a 23L batch Fermentables 3 x 1.5Kg Coopers LME 2.35Kg Pale Malt (2 Row) 300g Crystal (120L) 250g Crystal (60L) 150g Carapils 150g Chocolate malt Hop Shedule 20g Chinook @60 minutes 15g Centennial @45 minutes 30g Centennial @30 minutes 25g Cascade @5 minutes 30g Cascade Dry Hop (Day 3) 30g Centennial Dry Hop (Day 3) 30g Chinook Dry Hop (Day 3) Safale 05 Yeast 1 Whirlfloc tablet @15 minutes 65 IBU 1064 OG 1016 FG 6.3% ABV Enjoy!
  4. Thanks mate, Unfortunately the grain is now mixed together so I'll have to suck it and see. Should make a fantastic beer and I'm looking forward to it immensely
  5. For anyone interested...

  6. Kegged, gassed & tasted yesterday. Nicely bitter and quite similar to the real thing... only... I made a pig's ear of the recipe and didn't add enough extract (I only added 1 can of LME instead of 2) so it isn't as malty as the real deal, nor as alcoholic. A nice drink nonetheless. I've decided to make a 23 Litre All Grain batch as my next brew.
  7. Looking forward to tasting mine. Can't help but get excited when others are having a win also :P
  8. Thanks for clarifying, Anthony... I think i get it. I shall do a bit of research on the two styles of calculation.
  9. Great post, Anthony. I do almost the exact same thing except strain my spent hops (which i will now do) I haven't got the hang of the 'Hop Concentration Factor" yet though... any tips?
  10. D'Oh! I should have spotted that. Thanks for pointing it out, mate
  11. Had a few of these and it's a fantastic tipple. I'd love to see a recipe... nudge nudge, wink wink, PB2 [bandit]
  12. Made this recipe on Tuesday night. 90 min mash @ 65\xb0 in 12L of water (Double brew size). Pitched @ 21\xb0 and now fermenting in the bath @ 19\xb0. It doesn't fluctuate at all when using the bath. Wort tasted great but had a low SG of 1040 and i can't think why... anyways, i added 600g of Dextrose as it was all i had in the house. I hope it turns out OK
  13. I hope it does turn out well, mate. I'm gonna do a 46Litre version of your recipe (with the closest grain match) - Cheers!
  14. That's exactly what I do. Chill the wort in the bath then add to the FV with cold water from the freezer. Really want to get into AG's but I just bought a kegerator so no chance of the boss approving [crying]
  15. +1 I loved it. [love] My work tried it as a line, but the price point scared most away unfortunately. Thus we had to drop it. As far as any AUS heavily hopped craft beers go, I thought this was the closest at the time to rival some of the Sierra Nevada beers on the market. Matilda Bay have not helped their cause with this beer by not promoting it for what it is. Matilda Bay make some great beers, but shoot themselves in the foot continually by not promoting them more heavily to the public as something they should be drinking. Anthony. Totally agree with this. It's a bloody good beer although it is expensive. I've asked my LHBS to get some Citra in so i can make the 4 Pines Pale Ale. Also, taste tested the PM LCPA i brewed - Fantastic. I think i will continue to brew this, and variants thereof. Adding more late hops
