Re: Exmoor Gold & Styrian hop advice

The choice of yeast will be more important than the choice of Styrians.

Re: Your favourite Graham Wheeler recipe...

That’s always the question! Do the Nussdorf you’ll not regret it. What yeast do you recommend for it? I bought GW's European book second hand a few weeks ago but haven't brewed anything from it yet but I noticed that he doesn't specify a yeast Wyeast 1007 would be another good option, I reckon.

I was 18 in 1978. So through the 80s into the 90s.
I would say it was great in the 70s, good in the 80s, poor in the 90s. Roughly speaking.

Re: Recreating Boddingtons

I'm not sure what the fuss about Boddingtons bitter is all about, it always seemed fairly unremarkable to me and I did drink quite a bit of it. Anyway...

Re: Malt Miller Mini-Mash Kits

I often do partial mash brews and the Maltmiller liquid extract is a good base that I will be using more, though I usually use dried extract. I then typically mash about 1kg base malt with other grains required by the recipe. I do use brewing software to assemble the recipe to check IBUs and OG etc....

Re: Any good low ABV recipes out there?

Some interesting thoughts from peebee. I have used and adapted published recipes and reduced the ABV many times, simply by reducing the base malt. And the bittering hops to maintain the gravity/IBU ratio. It means your specialty malt % can rise significantly. But it works. Avoid using yeast that is ...

Re: Coppers 86 Day Pilsner

You could get a Kolsch or California Common yeast from Crossmyloofbrew. £1.31 including postage. Cost less if you buy more. Their website is closed til the weekend, hopefully back up tomorrow. This is their price list from Facebook:

Add hops. This sort of kit is late hop deficient. It'll make a big difference.

Re: I keep getting a weird urge to do a kit.

I do a very occasional kit, I tend to add beer enhancer, steep a bit of grain of some sort like crystal, and do a short hop boil. I find the bit of grain and the hops make a huge difference. I once split lager a kit three ways, and used the kit yeast, an ale yeast. All had an enhancer added. One had...

Re: What is your favourite English hop variety?

I have liked the couple of Olicana beers I have tasted, in the pub. It's different from your average Anglo-hop, fruity in the newer way, without obvious spice or earth, but it's gentle, not intense at all. No grapefruit. No pine. Been a year since I tasted it but, from memory, maybe a bit like Summe...

Re: Dry Kolsch yeast

86% seems really high to me, I'm in the mid 70s with it so far OK. Interesting. My FG reading was 1006 - but it was my first use of a new hydrometer and I used a trial jar, rarely bother, wonder if I got a fake reading? The beer is 10% crystal, i'ts not super dry but it's dry for a beer with 10% cr...
