Default What did you brew today?

Some people may not want to write out a full brewday report but just say what they brewed.

So what did you brew today?

I made a 'bit's and bobs stout' to use up the odds and ends of grain I had

Nothing

going on holiday next week so couldn't really but was tempted to do another smaller batch golden ale with some left over fuggles and EKG (I have an EKG honey golden ale at the minute and its really nice)

Might do it before I go and just leave it.

Bits and bobs stout sounds nice.. must get another stout on soon

Even though it is in a chamber are you going to crank it up later on?

Nope read an article from byo and they recommended keeping it at 17 degrees to get the best flavour from the yeast and its fermented out beautifully. Bottled it all up today and beautiful banana and clove flavours

Nothing as we thought it would be a good idea to spend 7hrs on the M5 instead

..
But before we left I managed to bottle my latest ruby which smelt absolutely divine after I dry hopped with EKG, styrian and liberty

Slightly tweaked from a recipe I mentioned earlier as the Saaz has 3% Alpha, not 4%

Czech/ Bohemian Pilsner

4kg Bohemian Pilsner Malt
250g Carapils

80g Saaz 60 mins
25g Saaz 15 mins

Whirfloc

2 x Sachets M84 Bohemian Lager Yeast

Also my first time using my fermentation chamber ie. fridge.

The sweet wort tasted really nice. I'm hopeful for this brew.

Next week I'm cleaning out the hop odds and sods from my freezer. I'll be making a pseudo lager with 7 different hops. God knows what it'll taste like
