Re: Citra comparable available in the UK

Looking at willingham nursery's list, the strongest american style flavoured ones would probably be centennial and chinook. I grow centennial here in scotland and it isn't as potent as the commercial US stuff as TheSumOfAllBeers says, our climate doesn't suit those types of hops. But it is a nice ho...

Re: The marmalade in Fullers

supposed to be the yeast, bengal lancer is the best example of "marmalade" I have tasted I think. Also that NEIPA that wasn't really a NEIPA they did with Cloudwater a year or so ago was a very good example.

I wonder if it's in conjunction with the hops they use as well though

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...
