First time I’ve used a wort cooler - down from nearly 100 to 28 in 15 minutes! Game changer ! Need to get some plumber’s silicone tape around the thread of the connectors to the water but otherwise good to go 👍

Big beer day - Oz IPA about to bottled, and also a Brew A. That one is down to 1.012 but it still farts at me occasionally when I go past it, like an incontinent granny 😳

I tasted what was in the hydrometer and it is quite an alcohol-heavy brew. It’ll have to mature quite a while so I’m only putting 5g/l sugar in each 33cl bottle.

Hey DG how much hop extract did you get? And how did you store it? 
Sounds intriguing…

Got the house Pilsner in the FV today. After some feed back  from some judges I’ve upped the bitterness by 5 ibu, bringing it up to 45 in totes. Also ditched a 20 min hop stand for a bigger 10min addition after I thought I got some slight grass last time round. 
 

Brew day went smoothly. Ended up with a good extraction and ended up 5points over on my FG. The three litre yeast starter will confidently bring my FG down to where it needs to be. 
 

cheers

150gm. Stored in a container in the fridge.

So dank and hard to clean up, the kettle was a mess.

 

Beware @The Captain!!

Noted mate. If it was on the kettle I’m wondering how much isomerised………..

I’ll be getting a couple of syringes and putting them in the mash to warm up. Then into the boil.

Yesterday I brewed the Landlord clone, and bottled two 23 litre batches ( Oz IPA and Brew A). All that I am sure ‘cos SWMBO was off at some yoga retreat of summat for the day. Amazing how productive a man can be 🙄

I’ve got my fingers crossed for the Landlord -it’s far too dark (60g Carafa III is too much), the OG was 1.055 instead of 1.044 - hope it doesn’t throw the beer off-kilter because those kinds of beers are not meant to be that strong , and on top of that the the Wyeast 1469 West Yorkshire kit never took off properly (I ended up pouring it all in anyway). 24 hours later no sign of life yet 😬

It’s a bit off to quote yourself, but it was bothering me so I went and added 2 litres of water to the brew. It’s at 1.042 now (should gave been 1.044, but I’ll ferment it down to 1.010 instead of 1.012). Great big krausen on the bugger too, so looking promising

Just mashed in on this one

Beaut RD @RDT2 mate - and tell me what is the festive Mash sequence - looks interesting...

40 at 68.5 

then 20 at 71...

then mash out at 75...

Cool.

So what brings you to doing the 20 @ 71 mate - sounds very interesting?

Sorry mate didn’t edit that bit out🤣 just mash in at 71 and let it go for an hour giving it a stir every 20 or so and sparge 5 litres to make my volume for the boil don’t bother with mash out cause I had tannins once doing that dodgy thermometer I think so don’t risk it anymore. Sorry for the confusion.

Higher mash temp is good for body and reduces ABV. More non-fermentable sugars are created in higher temp mashes.
