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

Recommended Posts

Brewing my ESB style beer tomorrow, will post up the recipe in the morning. Decided to throw in some golden syrup, just 250g. Haven't tried this before so I'll be Interested to see if it makes any noticeable difference. I've seen it used in English ale recipes before so thought I'd give it a go. I'll add it to the boil with about 10-15 minutes left.

Ambient...... so whatever that is.

That's the temperature of the natural air around the fermenter.

😄 I think he meant... 'so whatever the ambient temp is' not 'what does ambient mean'. 😄

Is that a sheet of sandpaper under his arm guard ?? 🤣🤣🤣🤣

That'd be a bit counterproductive when he's batting 😂😂

I’m an Aussie cricket tragic through and through, but have never liked Warner even before Sandpaper Gate. Prefer knockabout blokes like Swervin Mervin Hughes

Yeah I'm not his biggest fan either. Only really plays well in Australia on flat roads. Quite a difference between Smith and loose bus change, only two to do anything decent in England.

Back on topic... Brew Day with Cricket on the Radio ; )  

Mostly Weyermann Pilsener Malt, some Wmann acidulated malt, with a bit of BB Wheat and a bit of Munich... in the SS mesh basket and doing a pumping recirc and with a mate's rainwater.

Glad that I milled up yesterday so didn't have to fight with my old drill on Brew Day ; )

Probably, those Caribbean tours are something else. I reckon it'd be a heap of fun, also want to do an England tour at some point. Before that though, Ashes test at the Gabba next series. Dad went to one there in 1958, which I have highlights of on DVD as part of an ABC cricket box set thing. Be cool to do the same thing 60 odd years later.

Might have to meet up at a Gabba Test mate and get on it ? I used to go to the First day of the First Test at the Gabba for years, got on the turps with some of the Qld team first time we won the Shield, great days, better get back to talking about brewing I guess 🤣🤣

I'll be keen. I didn't hang out with a lot of players but Andy Bichel played for my club (seniors) and he used to talk to us a bit when we'd be there after the morning games watching the firsts and mucking around in the nets. 

Anyway, yes just coming up to the boil on today's brew day, crapload of rain just hit and blew through the patio area. Waiting for it to hit boiling so I can start the timer and go do a couple of things to prep for wort transfer post boil.

Yep, Andy is a good guy. Getting back to brewing I have a Coopers Amber Ale kit, any ideas on recipes how to trick it up a bit ?

The hops I have laying around are Amarillo, Hersbrucker, Hallertau, Saaz and Tettnang.

cheers

I'd use Amarillo with that one. The others are all euro lager hops.
