Yep - Druid is the Andrew who sailed back from Noumea with you!

On RealBeer, you have to 'friend' each other before you can exchange PM's - so there should be a friend invite with a message.

We should catch up - I could totally sort you on getting started...

Hi , hey what's the final volume into fermenter for the Timothy Taylor's ? 19 or 23 ltrs ?
At 11:37am on August 31, 2016, Peter Smith said…

hi thats 20L into fermenter , based on a 3.8L trub waste at bottom of pot after boil and a 70% eff.  I like to leave

the trub in the pot if possible.     may end up with more or less but adjusted to the og and ibu on Beersmith.

my numbers are Gladfield malts then belgium / german malts.
