Re: Liquid yeast viability.

Just to add my experiment, I had a pack of WLP005 in the fridge that went past it’s use by date of 03/07/2020 which I’ve done a 300ml starter for 3 days ago, it took 36 hours for any signs but it was there! Poured another 300ml in 12 hours ago and it’s bulging the cling film covering now. So glad I ...

Re: Tomordgarden Kveik

hi, could you tell me how many grams to use in 23 liters, seems as most sell only 1 gram packs and i have looked all over but cant find answer , cheers Just seen this, sorry! Kveik seems to thrive on being underpitched and 1g for 23 litres is fine. I’ve read that stressing it this way brings out mo...

Re: The marmalade in Fullers

Hi, the key word marmalade got my attention as I’ve just read about the malt I will be using today. Sounds like it could help get the flavour profile

Re: SEYMOUR MERIDIAN HOP TRIAL

Looks like a Sam Smith's glass. Yep, you're right! Did the hops live up to the description? Yes, mostly. Definitely fruity, but not tropical and not citrusy as some sources say, strikes me more as berry fruit or stone fruit, kinda like Bramling Cross or Phoenix hops, actually. Broadleaf weedy, a li...

Re: Tomordgarden Kveik

I must add that I used a different cup to add the hops in to, I didn’t add the dry hops to a cup full of yeast. But there was just so much of it ready to re-fill this new cup that things just didn’t go to plan. And I’m using it again in this split batch, in the Fermzilla I’m using wyeast1098 and 2 d...

I fermented in a Fermzilla and using the yeast collection cup to dry hop, I put a hell of a lot Of hops in, but there was that much yeast that smoth...

Re: Tomordgarden Kveik

That sounds great! I’ve just ordered a kilo of Mandarina Bavaria hops because they were cheap. Maybe I’ll do a SMaSH experiment with the yeast 😀

Tomordgarden Kveik

I recently bought some Tomordgarden Kveik to try, and made a starter up as I wasn’t sure the tiny amount I had would be enough, or was viable. It certainly is viable though! I pitched this into a sort of take on A Verdant recipe, with an OG of 1.070. Here’s a picture of it just 8 hours later at 22-2...

Nice! What beers do you have planned for them, if any yet?
I just used them in a brew where I got about 18 litres after the hops had absorbed about 8 litres! Used 3.2kg of them at 80c for a steep for about half an hour

Re: Weatheroak Hill Brewery / Sunshine Marmalade 4.7%

Popped into the Inn yesterday to try a pint of this, well worth trying. One I really wish I’d brewed this summer! Lovely orange note to the aftertaste, highly drinkable. One for me to try brewing soon I think.
