    Belgium golden strong update 16/1 brew day. Pitched yeast into wort 1060 20/1 gravity had dropped to 1020, so I added 1kg of table sugar in solution bumping the gravity up to 1040 22/1 gravity dropped to 1020 already. Interestingly, the yeast-on-sugar has produced a much more pronounced belgium...

    Thanks - bottles are a complete pain. This brew will be going into the Norwich Brewers 2021 Beer Advent Calendar, it will be quite pokey at c9%, and it needs a good bit of age on it. I've never aged a beer in a corney - maybe that's something to try. Cheers Martin

    OK, in 60 hours the wort has gone from 1060 to 1038. I will leave it another day before adding the sugar solution.

    Going back to kits...

    The LME that I have used with hops, has only every contained isomerized hop oil - that is the bitter bit of hops that is usually obtained by boiling hops for an extended period. In this useage, there is not that much difference between ibus from one hop and another. I have not come across any...

    Going back to kits...

    I recently did a kit - the first one in 5 years. I was fortunate enough to be given one of the new 2 can kits Muntons are launching this spring. The cans were a mix of LME, Liquid malted rye extract and isomerised hop oils. There were 2 packs of hops for dry hopping, and a full pack of US05...

    Thanks Dutto, I agree with you! What I am trying to do (and should have said) is manage the yeast effectively. A number of club members have had stalled fermentations with M21. I suspect that this may be linked to not managing the free rise effectively - that is to say that the wort may...

    Hi Pennine, Ha! Just had a look at your lovely kegerator! I'd never get away with something that big! We'd have to lose a sofa. Anyway, just had a lad ring me up saying he really wants the AG kit. He's a good 'un and a straight edge. I'll message you his name and number - He's just...

    Meant to add, in normal times the ACB do a lovely homebrew festival in Colchester. lots of lovely homebrew, all for charity. We always go over for it, and end up getting very tired. Quite an active club.

    M21. So,, after 24 hrs 1024. After 48 hrs 1017. 72 hrs 1017. This is 5 points too high, so I gave it a good rouse, and upped the temp to 24C.

    Ah! I have neglected this thread....so much brewing has gone on! Norwich Amateur Brewers beat Beer Boars in a brew off, with my hefeweizen doing well. A couple of Northern Browns have come and gone. A quick Citra SMaSH didn't touch the sides. So I've had 2 packets of MJ M21 Belgium Wit sat in...
