Re: Newkie broon recipe

Hi Seymour I bet you're right. Even as it is, though, it's not brown at all. It's really a clear, medium orange-amber: http://img4-2.realsimple.timeinc.net/images/daily-finds/food/0709/df-newcastel-brown_300.jpg ... that pic looks more like what they sell here in the UK as Newcastle Amber Ale, I dou...

Re: Newkie broon recipe

Hi I had a try following the recipe from the Szamatulski's "Clone Brews" book which was close ... but no cigar :( ... I attributed the fail mostly to my deciding to use Nottingham yeast though :? ... which left it too dry and over-emphasised the hops and the chocolate malt ... it was a nice beer, ju...

Re: Suggestions wanted re orange peel

Hi Wilf I believe if you want your beer to actually taste of oranges then you need to be adding fresh orange peel (no pith) into the fermenter. Traditionally it would have been into secondary but not many people do that primary/secondary stuff any more, if you don't, then it goes into your FV after ...

Re: CASTLE MALTING: BELGIAN STYLE IPA

I hope you don't think I'm trying to trick anyone. ... of course, when it comes to communicating with strangers , that we only know over the internet, then our default position should be to assume that anyone and everyone is trying to trick us :? ... only by assessing the quantity and quality of ou...

Re: Weyermann® Einkehrschwung (showcasing CaraRed Malt)

Hops: Aroma hops about 25 BE (2 additions) - "Pearl" ... I don't think I've seen that sort of description before ... is "BE" ...

Re: Out of Date Kits

Hi Ditch This may not be the right forum for this advice ... but I'd feel bad if I didn't share it with you :? , so I'll go ahead anyway ... Only one little glitch was my " Iron Retention " ... Suddenly, I didn't feel so blazè and clever. I'd just come through the biggest health scare of my life and...

Re: Thornbridge Seaforth IPA (from IPA book) Recipe

Hi AdyG Bear in mind that you may have to wait some time for this beer to be "properly conditioned" ... I've only recently got around to reading the Pete Brown book "Hops and Glory", and since then caught up with how the story progressed after the exploits described in the book, on Pete Brown's blog...

Re: Teach me about Worcester hops, please.

Hi jmc That information about "the Golding vine" and "Mathon White" is a good find ... but I think my point was that just because some people (e.g. farmers) were aware of there being different types of hop plants (that we would now know as varieties) with different characteristics (e.g. how fast the...

Hi Seymour I know I don't contribute over here on JBK as much as I should :oops: ... but I still get a lot out of it from "lurking" (Thank You All!! :D ) ... but I'm interested in this "searching for precision in an imprecise world" notion, so I hope you don't mind if I pitch my two-penn'orth in :wi...
