Ian,
Just dropped the hydro in and showing 1012.
Going to leave it longer because I am dry hopping on day 10.
I didn`t add extra sugar, just Spraymalt.
Vigorous ferment on this, crud all over the FV lid.

Wales why on earth are you brewing Euro Fizz ? :roll:
The best addition you can make to that is mix it 50/50 with Pelfort Brune when serving it.
At least it will then have some body and taste. In fact I that is the only way I can stomach it.

Did you mean to say `Pelforth Brune`. A deep Mahogany English Brown Ale, dense with
spicy aromas and full bodied caramel malts? #-o

Anyway, it won`t be euro fizz because I prime it low (60.2gr Dem sugar).
I`ve made lager kits before and they just come out as yellow beer.
Nothing Lagerish at all.
That`s why I play about with Hops.
Tasted BLM from the FV after priming! :D

Sorry Wales it is spelt with an h at the end. My mistake because I spelt it the way it is pronounced in french. It has been brewed continually for 100 years which I think is unique.
Here is the story of the brewery.
