24th of July! sorry mate i've been off the map for a while with my new job! Twisted hop IPA...what a beer!
My guess is they're using the 3 C's of american brewing centennial, chinook and cascade....actually it's been a while do you still need advice?
Thanks for the update Nick. That news is great to hear. It's a good base beer, so there's no doubt that you'll tinker with the hops to get something different. You wait untill those hops have been soaking in there for a week... you'll be brewing your arse off to make more - I promise.
Cheers mate, I was presently surprised picking up that gold.
In the amber ale I actually used 15g of dried yeast (SO5) and on the Brown I used 1 package of Wyeast liquid yeast with a 1200mL starter on a stirplate. For some good info on pitching quantities check out the articles here.
I know what you're talking about mate, there's about 7 beers I'd like to brew this weekend, unfortunately I only have time and space for one. The joys of brewing haha.
Hi Nick, yeah I actually got in touch with them through trade me but following that I've just walked in to purchase equipment, they deal really well with cash and are extremely helpful with any problems that arise.
Yep, just the standard HWC elements. Haven't found them difficult to keep clean - but we always clean everything immediately after a brew so there's no time for anything to dry and harden onto them either. Remember wort is acidic, so that'll do some of the cleaning for you as well (keeps the copper fairly bright anyway!).
Thanks Nick, I got your post .
I logged out and still had to hunt it down, think it was via JK's profile rather than by view of blogs .. off to have a beer, self induced fuddles will be easier to deal with than ning
