Re: Home Grown Hops 2019

Hop shoots are apparently the most expensive vegetable in the world :0 . Has anyone cooked with them?

Re: Crystal malt in a Bohemian Pilsner

But he's not saying the pH of the water is important, he's saying the pH of the mash and the sparge water is. Which is a different thing to what you are assuming he said :) - i think at least And are you saying you like lagers with such high calcium levels? Can you point me to some commercial ones a...

Re: potato wine

sweet potato has lots of amylase in it doesn't it? I wonder if that would make a decent wine, mashing it as you would with grain :)

Re: Crystal malt in a Bohemian Pilsner

Yeah that's loads of carahell. I've used a bit of it in pale ales and saisons to add a touch of malty sweetness, up to 8% I think. Also why are they using cascade and hallertauer hops in a bo-pils? Bags of saaz only please :D

Re: Hot side aeration

I think there is merit to at least looking into eliminating HSA, but it isn't necessary for a lot of beers that homebrewers brew imo. That said if you want to brew lagers and really hop forward modern american beers and be a technical brewer then it's well worth a look, there is a lot of good info o...

Re: Favorite smash beer

I'm a fan of SMASH, done a few I also like your choices, but I'd increased the bittering a fair wack for my personal preference I like this for a modern british golden ale 100% Extra Pale MO New world hop (citra, chinook, centennial etc etc), 150g in 23l, bittered to 45 IBU (tinseth) most of it late...

Re: Strong-ish Ale for Xmas

Having a cheeky carbonation test :) Should be a very pleasant beer in a few weeks. I think I have under carbed it though, I just checked the amount of sugar I should have used for the amount of carb I wanted and I used 100g instead of 130g. Which is a little disappointing but better than overcarbing...

Re: Strong-ish Ale for Xmas

So I bottled today, had stopped the heater a few days ago to let it drop to 8c in my garage. Was really clear, no off smells or tastes, tastes a little green obviously but I'm well pleased with it at this stage. FG of 1.016 so an AA of 73 percent which is about right. Should be a good 6% beer at xma...

Re: How to fix watered down beer

Yeah, or just get a kg or two of extract, do a mini boil with it and a bunch of hops and add that if you want a shorter day

Re: Strong-ish Ale for Xmas

my temp probe fell out of the water bath I keep the fermenter in, so it was heating non stop for about 12 hours. reached about 27 degrees as the water heater automatically cuts out at that point. At least it wasn't right at the start when the yeast is muliplying, but it could still get a bit fruity....

Re: Fullers 1845

It might just be making way for xmas brews, I know up here only waitrose carry it normally and they bring in a bunch of Fullers xmas brews like Vintage Ale and their imperial stout, so I guess some things have to make way. Bengal Lancer is bottle conditioned as well, you could try that if they still...
