so..original recipe made

18 days fermenting
2 cold crashing
17 conditioning (5g sugar per l)

an I tasted one..........it was really rather nice indeed, definitely better at that stage than all kits I have done. As has bee mentioned, none of the kit 'twang' and I think I am an AG convert, I also tried a Festival US Steam which I bottled at the time and the AG was definitely better!

4 AG brews in now, got 2 in bottles and two fermenting including a Punk IPA which I am very excited about. Dark IPA next!

Still brew a little short due to equipment (I topped up the Punk IPA with 1.5l) to get more in demijphn - ABV will go down by around 0.75% which is fine.

DPS51 thank you for offer, think I need to make some space etc first and save some cash, but in future I will be getting some gear.

All in, from an absolute amateur, this thread is brilliant and has enableed me to take the next step! Go for it, if a numptey like me can do it then anyone can!

I have been reading this thread in depth.

I have just purchased the maris otter and some admiral hops and some yeast this morning. It's happening tomorrow.

Make sure UV got a small bottles of water in the freezer over night to chill the wort. I use about 7 500ml bottles in total. Gets it down to around 35c within the hour for a ten litre batch.
After it's been transferred it's normally ok to pitch depending on the yeast strain
