You find Notts good Pete, good for style there?
I used it a bit awhile back and it wasn't very hop friendly, realised I didn't brew to it's character
its great for malt forward beers, english beers etc, I have not tried it in a hoppy beer. I quite like M44 but it has serious lag times... that said no bad results yet....
for liquids 1272 and 090 are goto neutrals and 1469 for english esters
I am drinking an abbey ale 2 B pale ale, its great very subtle
Yea, it's not a yeast for hops
MJ42 New World Strong Ale is good on malt, a little kinder on the hops too.
Short lag times, especially repitches. Quick, like Notts, so it's really good if you need to fill a keg quickly
looks like this is repackaged us 05 still cheap for 15 grams
So a bit of a poll...... constant online home brew...
if you only had 1 keg online what type of beer would it be? if 2 kegs what beers?
mine would be a uk best bitter and an american pale ale, i like lower % beers on tap...
1 keg - NZ IPA
2 kegs - NZ IPA + various depending on season and mood NZ Pils, Belgian Blonde, Tripel, Red IPA
... and always an annual RIS in bottles.
This year maybe a Pilsner
Last year probably an XPA
Before that maybe an APA
Year before a hoppy porter
Somewhere back, a mild
Next year ?
Second keg, one of the above
Just kegged a psuedo NZ Pils calling it "Little Pils" because it's kiwi and it rocks.
