@leedsbrew do you know which strain Crossmyloof use. I believe each Kveik strain has different flavour profiles.
Drop them a line (crossmyloof@brew-meister.com) - always found them very helpful. Stevens your man.

Yes I have used it several times , very clean and lets the malt and hops shine . I'm a big fan of all of the CML yeasts .
Likewise, thanks for the comment - will give this, and probably one of the others, a go and post in a month or so

Has anyone tried this Kiwi yeast from Crossmyloof? Looking to try something different in a heavy dry hop IPA.

Re: Crossmyloof Brewery Dry Yeast

Just considering buying in CML yeast for an IPA with a heavy dry hop (part of the order with the hops). Read through the thread but little on the results with this style - any comments?

Re: Optimum Hop Contact Time

Thanks again, have read the Brulosophy piece too. Pellets and 75gm ish is very helpful. I'm planning to try a sanitised veg bag from Aldi / Sainsbury's and also got some of those glass beads from Dunelm. Only dry hopped 3 times before and found about 6-8 old stainless steel teaspoons worked well as...

Re: Optimum Hop Contact Time

Thanks for your insight, so following your 2-3 day contact, would you then cold crash? or are you including your cold crash in the 2-3 day period? Dry hop for 2/3 days and then cold crash (2C) for 6 days bring back to 18C overnight and bottle. Everyone will do things slightly differently but after ...

Re: Optimum Hop Contact Time

Do you use pellets vs whole hops? Just drop them in loose or in a bag? What sort of quantities have you used for a 23 litre batch? Apologies for multi questions but also just dipping toe in dry hopping waters and have a Citra / Cascade IPA at day 2 of ferment now ( very modest hopping schedule from...

I've used Proper Job yeast a few times myself. Works well.

Re: Hundreåring

I've been looking for recipes to use up 500g of homegrown Cascade left from last years harvest - idealy with a simple grain bill.

Will be keeping an eye on this one!

Re: Optimum Hop Contact Time

I've been playing around on this topic for a number of months. I primarily brew IPA's and have tended to major on Citra - best (and most consistant) results have come when dropping to 8C and then dry hopping for 3 days maximum. 2 days seemed just a little less aroma but little in it. Have now tried ...

Re: Home Grown Hops 2019

I'd leave it and let it take over the pot. Let it die right back obviously and then either re-pot in early spring or direct into the ground wherever you're intending having it long term.

Sorry SO4
I've used several yeasts on bitters but S04 more than most - might be part of the reason why I've never been really happy with the results.

Re: Good Bitter Recipe Wanted (c4.5%)

Thanks guys 1469-west-yorkshire-ale many shortcuts to getting a reasonable starter 1469 looks interesting but not cheap (don't forget - Yorkshire lad!) And usually make a starter from scavenged yeast as per IPA's method I would keep it to Pale malt, a bit of crystal, fuggles for hops and avoid SO2 l...

Good Bitter Recipe Wanted (c4.5%)

I'm finally happy with my base IPA recipe from which I've brewed several varieties by simply swapping hops and all of which I'm happy (albeit reluctant :wink: ) to offer others. However, I've never managed to brew what I would call a decent bitter despite numerous attempts over the last 5 years or s...
