    Weird Kveik Taste

    Could it have been your wort composition, was the 3rd brew mashed higher, etc? Kveik apparently struggle with the more complex maltotiose after ripping through glucose and maltose. https://escarpmentlabs.com/blogs/resources/5-tips-for-success-with-kveik-yeast

    Proper roasted potatoes

    If we're going mash, its Stoemp seasoned with Thyme, Bay and Nutmeg, over Pomme Puree, for me.

    Weird Kveik Taste

    If you use the flakes you have, I'd pitch them as they are, no starter (assuming your implying the usual way of preparing a starter days in advance). Or, ideally get them going in some cooled first runnings. Looking at your initial post at least half of the issue appears to arise after...

    Brewdog flouted US laws over beer imports

    ...but if they brand themselves as being one of the "good capitalists" and turn out not?

    Brewdog flouted US laws over beer imports

    Can't wait for Rev. Paul Jones of St. Cloudwater's surmon on this, will be interesting to see how he spins it.

    How do you find your recipes?

    It's interesting that the thread is about finding recipes and not formulating recipes. Does everyone cook directly from recipe books? Or do you learn from eating, what roughly goes into a dish, what individual ingredients taste of, the cooking processes required and then throw your own creations...

    Oak Chips?

    IIRC Bud use beech during fermentation as a throwback to an old way to keep yeast in suspension, rather than a direct flavouring process. This is different to using wood chips as an alternative to barrel ageing and its worth noting that barrels ofter go through extra processes in their...

    POLL - Would you rent a grainfather?

    I'm seeing the biggest market as, kit and extract brewers. If one was to offer that customet base the opportunity to dabble in a batch of AG at realistic price, there may be some mileage in providing the kit, ingredients and clear instructions. I'm presuming AG is where the margins are, with...

    Trappist rochefort 8 recipe

    D-180 in 5 minutes? If you only need half a kg, I'll argue it isn't much cheaper or at all when you factor in buying a bag of date sugar, dap, a sugar thermometer, energy and time. Which ever route, the recipes are still interesting.

    Big beer is selling off their UK Craft Beer breweries?

    You can add pastry stouts to that. My god its tedious right now. All pales with the same hops, but listed in a different order. Worst still, is when you do find a west coast ipa, its usually been softened and hazed up. My bad joke is that global warming has forced them all hundreds of miles...

    Mash temperature overshoot and management/consequences

    If you are catching it quickly, I think you'll probably still end up with some enzyme activity as it's unlikely the entire mash will be at a temperature high enough to denature all the enzymes. You'd probably be better just going for 68.5c for 60 minutes.

    POLL - Would you rent a grainfather?

    It feels like your covering the cost of the unit over a very low number of rentals, when a Grainfather, even being used and abused, should have a lifespan of many years. A better offer would be the unit and ingredients, delivered, for £50 for 3-4 days. I think you'd get greater take up from...

    Proper roasted potatoes

    Used sparingly it enhances spuds with its earthy flavour. Plus a golden hue and alleged health benefits.

    As above or whatever your prefered technique for texture + turmeric.
