Re: Taste my beer

I would guess that you have under pitched as well, i had the same problem when i started slanting my own yeast, instead of stepping up the yeast i would put a slant in 1 litre of wort for 24 hours, and then i pitched only to get a flavour i could not describe (may be sherry) but it was not there in ...

Re: Your fruitiest, breadiest, toffeeist brown or bitter rec

Thanks, it looks like a delicious recipe. Just to clarify, do you add those two hops after the boil for 15 minutes and 5 minutes, then chill and move to FV?
with 15 and 5 min left to go in the boil

Re: using RO water

It's just ratios, the ratio of the water-mix compared to how much of that element is in the water. Thanks Wolfy but i can understand that, but what I dont understand is what makes good brewing water for the beers that I brew, so if I was to dilute I would be still none the wiser to what is better, ...

Re: using RO water

Do you have a water analysis report for the stuff that comes out of the tap - it's a bit hard to say which is 'better' without knowing that. It may be that mixing the tap and RO water gives you a good profile for a large range of beer styles. Yes I do but don't know much on this subject to do a dil...

target hops

this might be a silly question but i normally dry hop my usual brew with EKG but i have run out, i have some target would i be able to dry hop with them instead, would this give me a completely different flavor or is this a hop that you would not dry hop with.

Re: london pride which version would you do ( confused )

The recipe from jamil cybi is spot on, since its given by the brewer on record. The most important thing however is to understand that the brewer's recipe is for a partigyle brew, and london pride itself is a blend between a few different runnings of wort. I believe there is a comment that if you a...

Re: london pride which version would you do ( confused )

FWIW, I recently did a different version based on one from the byo site - it's tacked onto an interview with the Fullers brewing director and supposedly been "reviewed" by him. No dry hops, and the later hops at 15 rather than 3mins, but similar to your recipe above really. Can't comment on the fin...
