Re: Late Hop Additions with 'No-chill'

You can't get the same results with no-chilling as you can by using late additions, so the best you can do really is to add them all as dry hop additions.

Re: Weyermann, Dingeman, Best, ... noname?

Some company's versions of certain malts are better than others. For example, Crisp's Vienna isn't that great, whereas Simpson's Vienna is fantastic. On the other hand, Crisp's lager malt is better than Fawcett's lager malt. This is of course, only MY OWN opinion... everyone has their own preference...

It will get 30+ litres of ambient temperature water to strike temperature in about 20 mins max....

Re: Perle in a Pilsener?

There's an Australian hop called Sylva which was specifically bred as a southern hemisphere equivalent to Saaz. It's really similar and very good, but not much use to you here as it's even harder to get than Saaz haha.

Re: Nuts! 80 IBU by accident

It's all Chris' fault haha Hello mate I'd love to blame him but as he's not here (or is he?) I don't think it would be right. Was totally his fault though (not really chris if you're reading). If it's vile I'll give it all to him! He must like it bitter and even happier than you, as he thought his ...
