I just never got around to buying the wyeast one. Cant say about high gravity beers as only brewed a handful. Half were really cack and the others i used very large starters with.
I'm hoping this one's ok, I shouldn't have added the 300g of sugar but was worried I wouldn't have a decent abv as I was unsure with sparge and top up water.
Although saying that the Young's AIPA requires a whopping 1kg so I'm sure it'll be a less thin one in comparison
As for the nutrient, think I've messed up there as I've been using the wine one!

I use wilko nutrient. Great stuff. Only one that I can find has zinc in it.

I'm pretty sure that's wine too. Double blunder😋

First time using, ordered 5 packs a month or so back. Just got round to doing a mad goose with a few more hops. Only pitched it 6 hours ago and it's bubbling away already. Used the cali common on this. Only at 18oc too.

I pitched the Real Ale Yeast late on Sunday afternoon for a Young's Special clone I'm doing. I did mix it with some tepid water as instructed. The wort was around 20°C and was bubbling away merrily not that many hours later. I glad I put a blow-off pipe on the fermenter as it was so active. All good so far. I bought 10 packs of each of the Real Ale Yeast and US Pale Ale Yeast.

I'm gonna try just started pitching more yeast I think. I think that's key rather than another expense on a product which in the beer making world is 50/50.
On the subject on malt miller, I've noticed they're cheaper on a lot more hops than crossmyloof. But then I'm confused with the delivery charge. 3quid for 100g of hops.

I find that if you're buying up to a kilo of hops (They do direct sell discounts too on their FB page) then Crossmyloof are cheaper than most places, as delivery is included.

Stringybob - They're away to a beer festival in Germany, so shut up shop until next Wednesday - Here's their facebook page update
