Re: SEYMOUR CALABAZILLA COMMON

Thanks guys, good to be back with you all! How are you doing during the shelter-in-place order, hanging in there? Whatcha brewing lately? Brewed the 1944 Whitbread XXXX from Wednesday's Let's Brew on Shut up about barclay perkins yesterday. Cooled overnight. Going to stir the hell out of it and add...

Re: Bitter kit and Lager kit as a Toucan brew

I did a few toucan brews when I started with kits (two Munton's Mexican cerveza kits to which I steep grains to make a porter - I remember it being very chocolately and quite bitter but I was happy with the results) and two Munton's mild kits together to make an Old Ale which I also enjoyed. I say b...

Re: User upper

Hi Fido97 I agree with Northern Brewer. You're looking at a wheaty mild ale or porter (using up all the base malts to balance the wheat) or of course, a wheat beer. Graham Wheeler has a recipe for Schneider Weiss in his Brew Classic European Beers at Home which uses what you have. It could certainly...

Re: Keeping Beer

I always think of dark beers when it comes to Winter and I like the idea of a Fuller's London Porter. Have you thought about a burton. Ron Pattinson's blog has loads of good ones and though it's a 'dead' style, some still exist like Theakston's Old Peculiar, Gales Festival Mild (these can be found i...

Re: Brewing plans while stuck at home

Hi Jason I am partial to the odd amber dark ale, but I find beers with amber malt need a month or two to mellow out. Especially anything more than 200g in a 23L brew. Right now I'm drinking a 1947 Barclay Perkins XX (From Ron Pattinson's Shut up about Barcley Parkins blog). It uses a whopping 15% i...

Re: Brewing plans while stuck at home

Cheers Jason, I knew it wasn't my original idea and there it is in my copy of that excellent book too. Might be subliminal influence, but would love to know if others use it, though doubt we will have scientific proof either way. As you say, unlikely to spoil anything so may try sometime. Their Nus...

Re: Brewing plans while stuck at home

I won't be able to up my brewing as I'm spending more at the store on essentials, mainly far more expensive items that I'm only getting because the lower price stuff I usually get is out of stock. Thanks hoarders. I'm sorry to hear that Rookie - it's as if the world's gone mad. I've heard it's the ...

Re: Marzen/bock

Would be interested to see how this turns out when it's done. Are you fermenting it at lager or ale temps?

Re: Marzen/bock

Hi Rookie

Is the blanket to keep the beer warm or stop it from getting light struck?

Cheers

Re: Brewing plans while stuck at home

That sounds like a lovely pint Cobnut. I once had some keyworth early that I used in a copy of Gales Festival Mild (which was very nice) but the recipe didn't really showcase what the hop had to offer. Wonder if keyworth mid tastes all that different?

Cheers

Brewing plans while stuck at home

Now that most of us around the world are supposed to be practicing social distancing or are under lockdown, it seems like a good idea to plan a brew I'm really keen on giving the Cameron Strongarm recipe in Graham Wheeler's BYORAAH a try. It's one of the earlier editions (1993) and the recipe is qui...

Re: Stout

Ron has some really interesting stout and porter recipes. I always liked the look of the 1924 RNS (Royal Navy Stout). Roasted Barley is added not only to the mash but also the copper. Mind you, as interesting as the recipe is - the attenuation is shocking. https://barclayperkins.blogspot.com/2012/07...
