Re: Rye Hoppy Ale

Cheers Leeds! Just got this out of the secondary.... which was a good call for dry hopping with pellets. Lots of matter and yeast has dropped. 8 bottles and a conry packaged. Had a little sample, and pretty good, maybe great. BUT the bitterness doesn't lend its self to easy drinking. Hope a bit of c...

Re: Hiatus IPA (AKA Leedsbrew's return) + some PICS

Good to see you back brewing again. What was the reason for the big break? Just interested in what are the most common impacts on hobbies/brewing.

Re: Rye Hoppy Ale

Two weeks in and I had a sniff. Hoppy, very hoppy. Hmmmm.....

What the hell in went 50g of dry hops. I predict hazes!

Dropped the temperature down to 17C.

Am I right in thinking that the BM mashes against gravity?

Ah, John, forgot that.... S05. I couldn't be bothered with liquid on this one. Wanted something clean.

Re: Rye Hoppy Ale

Went for 20g of Cascade (flower) at 60mins and 50g of Simcoe and 50g of Chinook pellets at 5 mins. I have a slack hand full left for dry hopping too. Ended up getting 22.5L at 1.040, but as I didn't want to alter the IBUs or colour I stayed away from liquoring back. Really difficult to get the wort ...

Re: Rye Hoppy Ale

Interesting read Wales. With such a high proportion of crystal I was kind of hedging my bets on the thinning of the body not being an issue. However didn't think about the lactic side of things. Tasting it this morning it seemed fine. However have to wait for the finished beer to see if there is any...

Re: Fermentation complete in 4 days?

Nothing to worry about time wise. Starters usually give the yeast a running start at a beer, so limited lag time. Also 007 is one of the more aggressive yeasts.

However if the beer tastes bad.....

Re: Brew dog recipe 173 beatnik stout

Yeah, I would think seriously about adding that much Lactose at the end of the boil, and would probably go low at the end of the boil, and add at the bottling stage to taste. (ensuring it is pasteurised before adding) That's the only thing that jumped out at me without inputting all the totals in to...

Re: The Saltaire Brewery Competition

Hey, all.

Such a good day out that we have pretty much ripped it off and made our own version down in Essex. Just had our second year with additions of food and speakers.

If dates are firmed up on this I will try and pop up and enter and see a few familiar faces.

Re: Fullers yeast not floccing

Are you sure it's not just a haze from the Rye and the hops (which I assume are in high quantities).

Sometimes this will also give that spicy flavour/aroma.....
