"Great write up Rob, thanks! My Mot NEIPA is cold crashing now and I'll get it in the keg this week. My observations were similar to yours - the hop character of the beer was a little more muted than what I'm used to given the quantities I…"

"I just finsihed 2 identical batches of Grim Neaper, one with finings and bottle conditioned the other in Kegasaurus with no finings but still cold crashed. Taste difference was huge. The Kegasaurus batch was hazy, juicy with a lasting hoppy finsh,…"

"Good little write up. I used it in an English IPA a while back and it produced one of the most amazingly clear beers I've brewed straight out of the fermenter (I only ever use koppafloc in the boil for finings). I've got a good amount of…"

"Are you using Beer Smith? what is the difference between Pre Boil and post boil Grvity based on your software and your actual. I typically get 6-8 point over 60-90 min boils."

"Any update on this Rob? I'm going to cook up an all-Motueka NEIPA this weekend. I have S04 and Liberty Bell on hand, so I can try either yeast. Also, what temperatures did you ferment at?"

Crusader-Rob replied to Jules Brown's discussion Is Panhead going downhill?
"Yep, they have some pretty good service, being backed by a bvig company like lion gives them the ability to replace these types of things. They did it for me awhile back when 1 ofthe 12 cans were empty. they sent a whole new 12pack. i wasnt too…"

Crusader-Rob replied to Jules Brown's discussion Is Panhead going downhill?
"now all that needs to happen in the 6/12 packs of emersons tuatara panhead need to come down a little bit. under the $20 mark for 6 packs wiould be on the mark."

Crusader-Rob replied to Jules Brown's discussion Is Panhead going downhill?
"Yeah, I noticed that. My local the Harewood tavern has Pilsner on tap all the time. They also got supercharger on tap, which was in good nick (its been awhile since I've been there) then they also ahve one of the seasonals on tap also, which is…"

Crusader-Rob replied to Jules Brown's discussion Is Panhead going downhill?
"Interesting. I did have any issue prior to sale, where once of the cans in the pack was empty  haha. they replaced it with a whoel new pack for nothing. so the custoemr service is good from a panhead perspective (i would assume it would either…"

"I think I may have over estimated it. its probably more like 25-30% at most. i'll have to double check. first smaples are promising, although the esters from the burton yeast are quite high thus far.  waiting for my single dryhop, and it…"

Crusader-Rob replied to Jules Brown's discussion Is Panhead going downhill?
"I think you can put a fair amount of the issues down to system changes. Now that Porthills Pilsand Supercharger are being brewed on a bigger plant at the main Lion brewery in Auckland, there will always be differences due to process changes. Its…"

David R replied to Crusader-Rob's discussion NEIPA's
"Heck, 35% wheat/oats, how was the sparge? As someone who usually cant be bothered with the hassle/cost of liquid yeasts it'd be nice to have a good dry yeast option for this kind of beer so I'll be interested to see how it turns out."
