Exciting times! Tonight's plan is a pale ale (as ever) with Centennial hops for the bitterness, and Goldings hops for aroma. It should be about 5% again. And I'll be making about 40 pints in The Big Pot. Super!


Unsurprisingly, I changed my mins and did yhe Hopback Summer Lightning clone. In my big pot.

Looks like it's going to be a 6% pale ale! My chiller wouldn't fit in my Big Pot, so I put the hot wort in the fermentation bin, put a lid on it and let it cool overnight. I took the OG this morning and adjusted for temperature, it was 1054. So, I will leave it to ferment, dry hop it with more Goldings, then bottle and bring to BeexBQ. Should be decently matured by then. Timewise, I put the mash on at 1940, and went to bed at 2330.

Capacity increase! Clearing out a house, my friend bought me over a feast of homebrew equipment (and a story about her colleague being shot and stabbed outside her work, he's still alive), including two more fermenting bins. Potentially, could have 90 litres on the go at once now!

There are two words and a comma in that sentence which mean you shouldn't be on the internet right now.

Picked up 5kg pale malt today, along with 100g Citra hops and 100g cascade all ready to do a Pale Centennial, Citra, cascade brew. I was about to weigh it all out and then realised it was about 15% cheaper than expected as I didn't buy any yeast.

MaliA's Big Three

5kg maris otter
200g crystal malt
200g biscuit malt

Mash at 66 for an hour and half in 12.5 litres. Continuous sparge at 80 degrees with 12.5l.

50g centennial in at start of boil
20g each of centennial, cascade and citra 5 minutes from end.

I intend to dry hop with 10g of each 3 days before bottling.

1048 was OG, so should be about 5.x%

I don't think it mashed totally, there was some exposed grain. I suspect i will have to increase mash volume to 17 litres, and sparge with 12.5 litres.

Edit: dry hopped with 12g each after11 days

There is a website with a database of receipes one can download into an app. It is only searchable by receipe name. The app has ingredients as defined objects which uses this database. Can i download the database somehow, and search by ingredient?

Hello. Has anyone ever put tea in beer. Or sampled beer with tea in it? What was the tea?

I've had plenty of beer with tea in it. Mostly earl grey. Marble do an earl grey IPA which is rather nice.

Twice that has been mentioned, now. Ta.

Currently have 38 to 40 litres in two FVs. One needs bottling on Wednesday after dry hopping with 40g Goldings, yesterday. Second is what I made last night. Bottles are now the rare limiting step. And storage.

Earl Gray doesn't, of course, taste much of tea.

Borgo's Watergate: 4.1% pale ale. All bottled up and ready for bbq times. Challenger and Goldings. Perfect for lazy summer's days.

5.1% , not 4.1%. i had the wrong OG

I think the American Pale might be ready for when i next see you, too.

I need a more efficient way to bottle as there was a lot of wastage yesterday. I might get a proper bottling bucket, rather than rely on siphons

As before: Making lager means controlling fermentation temp and keeping it down. Currently, to the delight of MrsA, the beer ferments in the fireplace in the dining room. To control the temperature i'd need a fridge big enough to hold the fermenting bin. That would also require power. The dining room is large enough to accomodate a fridge big enough and has power, but it'd be in the middle of the room. I could put it in the garage, but tbe roof leaks (passim) and it's full of push bikes. So, you'll try this fine ale, instead.

I think I'll have a crack at home brewing once we've moved. Is there a good starter kit you'd recommend, Mali?

Easiest way: Chuck it in a sterilised 25 litre bucket with 1kg brewing sugar, add 23 litres water, stir, add yeast then put on lid and bubble trap. Wait a week or so, add 200g brewing sugar, stir, leave for an hour then siphon into bottles. Store at room temp for a week and then try one.

Siphon

Bubbler

Sterilise it all with baby sterilising tabs.

It'll give you a 4% beer with minimum fuss. Later on you can use hydrometers etc, but not really needed for kits.

I like lager with flavour. Just not when the flavour they chose to add is called "fucking minging".

I've recently been on a lager kick, not sure why. I prefer helles and pilsner to Belgian-style golden lager though (which is all they sell in this country it seems).
