Aiming for December delivery (maybe a bit sooner at this rate) so if you're planning January-March brewdays, now's the...

    Citra IPA recipe

    Although I never tested this specifically, there are some negative reports about Citra as an early bittering addition. Leaving it later in the boil might reduce that. A lot of NEIPA recipes for example have no early bittering addition. There's enough bitterness for the style available in the...

    Citra IPA recipe

    One of us is missing something here... probably me... :) Don't you boil your wort after mashing? Or is it the boiling with no hops in for the first 40 mins that you're referring to?

    Citra IPA recipe

    For me it’s 6.4kg in 40L but use a calculation based on your kit to get OG 1.053

    Mine had murderous intent too. Especially in the winter. More than a few 180’s usually when you least expected it.

    How stupid can you get?

    They're just dense. My mum has a sign that says something like : "We do not require double glazing, cold callers, salesmen, canvassers, or religious instruction. Please don't knock and close the gate on your way out" And they all knock on the door, remarking how funny the sign is and then...

    Tesco Ashbeck Replacement?

    We're so lucky round here with tap water. There's basically nothing in it. I'd hate to generate so much plastic waste. I think I'd go with RO if I lived somewhere else and try to find best use for the waste. The local South Cheshire forum members were having a video chat earlier this week and...

    The next Malt buy by the South Cheshire Co-operative

The maltsters price is fixed to 31/12 so it’s the same deal as last round with the group buy costs. I’d expect that might change, given the transport challenges, when they...

    New grain store. 👍

    After the great shed slug plague of 2020 I had to rethink storage so it’s all in my office/workshop now in airtight bins. Cheap as chips from B&Q and Amazon.
