Hey Rusty, yep just had a read of AHB thread, and it makes sense for a stepped mash. Porbably give it a go in the next week or so, as I am looking forward to using some of the W34/70 and Wyeast 2042 I have in the fridge!

Hi mate

Good to catchup..Not ordered any kegs yet..Was looking at craftbrewer but james said ( i think) Steve up in Halleratu sold them...Craftbrewer doesn't ship them here - too costly apparently...You probably left at a good time..I got home around 1.00 am:) So much for a few quiet beers... Will see you soon for a beer or several.

hey rusty

here is there recipe, sorry i took so long ot gwet it too you. i had to get it off of mick. you could substitute the extract for pale malt but you might have to do a longer boil to get a decent OG

We also decided it could be more bitter and maybe fuller bodied/darker in taste, using pale malt instead of extract and adding a bit more darker malts may achieve this

23 L batch

Pale Malt 3.1 kg
Light Malt Extract 1.8 kg
Chocolate Malt 400 g
Roasted Barley 300 g
Rolled oats 300 g
Black Patent 150 g
Crystal (80l) 140 g
Crystal (120l) 60 g
light unhopped spray malt 200 g

Name Amount Alpha Boil time
NZ Golding 15 g 4.80% 60
NZ Hallertau 20 g 5.60% 60
NZ Pacific Gem 45 g 13.80% 60

Desired Volume: 23
Actual Volume 21.135
ABV 6.5 %
Original Gravity 1.064
Final Gravity: 1.020
IBU 68.2
SRM 87.6
