    Magnum dry white kit.

    ok so were drinking this from the PB after 2 days clearing. A little lacking in body but fresh and well decent . Fermented to .998 to. A decent kit but were gonna do a £30 one next time. Was a bargain though at 15 notes.

    Magnum dry white kit.

    Got you mate cheers for clearing that up. Don’t think my instructions mention back sweetening hence my confusion.

    Magnum dry white kit.

    Am I miss understanding Chippy? Your saying don't add 3.5kg sugar to the grape concentrate? Surely this cant be right?!?! Just bought this kit for £15.

    I would have thought I'd lose a lot more water than 2 litre? with grain absorption, trub loss and reboil,etc? Should me preboil not be around the 30lt mark? Also does "aroma" on the hop part of the calculator mean "at flame out"? Cheers.

    Haven't bought any ingredients for it yet, just looking for a decent starting point for a citrusy hoppy even grapefruity type IPA. JUst bought a prima dona hop rhyzome from fleabay for poly tunnel. Should be fun to grow and harvest!

    @MmmmCitra thanks for the input. You sound like you like the same kinda style. Do you have a goto IPA nice recipe to share. I think I'm along the right lines with these type of hops and would rather go late additions for more flavour/amoras. :)

    No point having 5 gal of not so hoppy beer for me!!!! is the magnum@60 mins the main bittering hop here ? I don’t think I like Beers too bitter. I guess just middle ground would be be bittering for me Still trying to hone my taste buds trying loads different beers I normally wouldn’t drink.
