Re: Adventures in brewing - Day 3 (AG#3)

Well, patience got the better of me today, so when I got in from work I took the skanky bottle that was last filled, it was filled with a jug, it had way too much head space, so I didn't expect much from it really. I just wanted to see how it was getting along. Well.... I am a happy man tonight. Th...

Re: Any groups in or around the Preston area?

Excellent, that's a start. Maybe we could ask Joe to stick a sign up in the shop seeing if anyone else is interested. I was just in there last night on the way home from work too.!

Re: RIS - Whisky/Sherry/Coffee

Genuinely i'm worried about this too. I'll have to research S04 as i'm used to using S05 as a workhorse. I'll pitch two packets to be safe but maybe if it doesn't reach the FG i'll have to try a champagne yeast or similar? Not sure about it, is all new territory for me! I'd use 2 packets for defini...

Re: Rasberrys blonde

Might even consider 1g amounts as 20g s times by 23 is over 400g I think ill struggle to get this to dissolve in a 200ml water/sugar solution Someone on here will have an idea of what is a ballpark figure to start with, so add that to a sample and either add a bit more or less to suit however you w...

Re: Rasberrys blonde

So if I take a1/2 litre out of the fv then break it into 100 ml sample taste raw then add something like 2g at a time until I get desired level ? So if I find out that 2g suits a 100 ml sample I then times this by ten to get 20g then times by total litres left in fv? Then can I add this solution to...

Re: Rasberrys blonde

I've thought maybe adding 100g 10 min from end of boil so the beer finishes at 1.018 then add the rasberries to avoid it going to dry. I'm honestly not sure if I want to brew this beer now too many viables What! Come on, where's your sense of adventure? It is a fabulous drink on a hot Summer's day....

Maybe some do, I don't know. All the ones I've looked at add at racking or some at FO.

Re: Rasberrys blonde

You add the lactose at racking, like you would for a milk stout.

I'd at least double the raspberries to get enough of a fruity hit.

85% Marris Otter, 10% Pale Crystal, 5% Torrified Wheat. 4.5% ABV.

Bittering = Challenger; Late = Goldings & Cascade. 35 IBU.

Own choice yeast but Nottingham recommended.

Sounds good and I've got everything except the Challenger, but they're cheap as chips and plentiful anyway. £4 this afternoon and I'm ready to go..!!

Re: Red Dawn Amber Ale

I brewed mine yesterday. Stuck to the original recipe I'd posted except for swapping out the centennial for Northern Brewer. No centennial left as my missus moved some stuff about in the freezer and forgot to put my hops back in. A packet of centennial and a packet of goldings are up the swanny.! I...
