Thought it might be handy to have a thread for some of the more advanced brewers to give some advice on recipes.

Let's see how it goes eh...

Thanks Stu! I will give it a nudge sometime soon. Probably will play with more crystal and less pale and a few more hops. Drop me an address if you would like to try my version of it and I will send some along!

I've brewed a couple of these recently, swapping out the Black for Roasted Wheat and adding Cascade and Sauvin to the dry hop.

Now it's more  like a hoppy Black XPA


Any good jt?

yeah, I'm enjoying it.

I like the roasted wheat, not as dry and toasty as the black malt and it adds a bit of fluff, if you know what I mean.

And I prefer the Cascade and Sauvin  to the Styrians by themselves

Cheers !

We all love a bit of fluff :)

Will put it on the list to brew

I'm hoping to put down 30L of American Barleywine this weekend:

Aiming for about 1.100 at 60% Efficiency.

Any input/suggestions appreciated, will be dryhopped with amarillo and possibly cascade and Nelson sauvin

this thread has gone to cack... it doesn't seem to wrok for me any longer, I always end up at page 1


happened to me last night and earlier this morning - obviously working again though otherwise I'd be back at page 1 with you Stu ?


Hey what malts are you using for that Aussie ale, maybe some aussie pale ?

Me too. I was wondering if there was some page limit to thread and if we would have to start a new one?


Appears to be working again now tho...

Hope I,m not teaching Granny to suck eggs here but it will go to page 1 if you click on the link for the name of the thread. To get to the comment you reading you click on the "replied" hyperlink
Clicking on the "replied" hyperlink, or the page 210 hyperlink or typing page 210 into the page box and then pressing go were all taking me to page 1 last night and this morning... but it appears to all be back to normal again now.

Afternoon all! Looking for some advice from those that have dabbled with the Dubbel style. Here's what I have so far:

Amt Name Type # %/IBU

Not sure on yeast but thinking maybe 1762 or 3787. Never used either before but I like the look of the clean profile that is mentioned with both. Looking for some dried fruit notes, no banana. So, is there anything that looks out of whack or you guys would recommend to adjust?
