Sunshine Marmalade Peel Addition

Intending trying Rob's recipe soon buying in the peel from TMM. I no chill and then boil 1 gallon of wort the following day for 10 minutes with my late hop addition - I'm able to rapid cool that amount in a large sink using waterand ice cubes - seems to work fine although I suppose I could calculate...

Re: Mandarin Dream

That looks very similar to what I used. Oil of orange being the main ingredient. Be interesting to see what effect it has on the head of your beer. Unless of course you don't like a head on your beer in which case you should be fine.[emoji2][emoji481] Sent from my LG-H870DS using Tapatalk Interesti...

Re: Citra comparable available in the UK

There are some UK based hops that are starting to express those interesting citrus hop flavours that we start to associate with new world hops, and they might be worth experimenting with - like Jester Although I was looking for rhizomes rather than hops I am keen to support UK growers/developers so...

Re: Citra comparable available in the UK

There has been a few deals in the past for bulk buys on this forum. They typically cluster around when new harvest hops come available It was one such deal that's got me hooked on Citra in the 1st place. I did ping a query on the 'wanted' but no replies unfortunately. Best deal I can find at the mo...

Re: Citra comparable available in the UK

I punted this post out in hope more than anything else - there's obviously a reason why it's still held under licence in the US. I suppose I either take a hit in buying small quantities at a high cost or try and find a few like-minded souls who'd be happy to share the cost of buying in larger quanti...

Citra comparable available in the UK

Which variety, available as a rhizome and suitable to grow in the UK. most closely compares to Citra in your opinion?

I'm currently growing Cascade, First Gold, Fuggles, Northdown, Santiam and Styrian Golding - none of which come close in my opinion.

Re: 1.002 FG reading on IPA

Hi guys How much of the recipe was sugar? 8% and only came about originally when I found I was short of grain and needed to get to the Assassin's 6.1% - loved the result so saw no reason to change the recipe. but as you dislike chinook... I didn't think I did - thinking more it's the batch I've got....

1.002 FG reading on IPA

Temp at 17C as usual. Checked the hydro with distilled water and 1.000 reading (at 17C) as expected. This is my usual IPA recipe which, because of adding sugar to try and clone a beer (Baby Faced Assassin), now sees a regular FG of 1.006. But 1.002 - really? Bit of a story to this as should have bee...

Re: It's been a long time coming.......

@Meaty what was it a clone of and are you going to share the recipe? Hi Richard Trying to clone Baby Faced Assassin which started off as a home brew recipe (what doesn't) by a couple of guys who ultimately ended up running the Roosters Brewery Co in Knaresborough, North Yorkshire - I've no idea how...

Re: It's been a long time coming.......

Well, laptop packed up whilst on jollies so not been on for a week and missed all the fun and games! JMHO ..And I am prepared to be "shot down" on this. I agree that it all about the challenge on doing a clone, but it costs a lot of money/time to achieve anything like the original and it will never ...
