Re: Bittering Units?

Sorry, guys..... dropped off the face so to speak.... Dad passed before I could get this finished and have him sample it..... His passing knocked my duck off big time and only just really thinking about getting back on the horse.... As for the last question posed by The Epworth Brewer, it was a clon...

Re: Bittering Units?

Cheers Richard.... so from what you're saying then it's equivalent to 30 IBUs of your selected hop added at the specified time regardless of weight?? Thanks for the response

Re: Wheelers Hopping

Many thanks gents... I knew someone was out there.... It's the first time I've used a recipe from 'the book' and didn't want to go ahead and screw up the hopping....

Re: Adding brassware to my HLT

As a rough guide, add 1/4" to the BSP size which will give you an approximate size (eg 1/2" BSP is around 21mm or 0.82" or just over 13/16")

Re: Black IPA recipe help needed.

Recently did a Black Wheat beer and instead of including the black malt in the grist, I sprinkled the black malt over the foil just prior to sparging and sparged through the grain.... Masses of colour, some aroma and not a massive amount to flavour from the malt.... Maybe it'd work on a Black IPA to...

Re: Is this a good recipe for an IPA ?

Some people think that GKIPAA is great.... earlier in the year I was not 15 miles from the brewery and ordered a pint of Green King IPA...... It was sh**e..... No flavour and overly gassed (I know that each establishment has it's own stake/idea on the perfect beer).... However this was totally pants...
