    So, just mashed in my first brew for a longtime.

    2kg Lager malt (acquired free from a local micro!)
    200g Crystal
    8l at 75, mash is 66 degrees and wrapped in towels.

    I’ve got fresh Magnum 11% pellets
    Galena 13.6% pellets

    Old cascade 8.3 2015 harvest -
    Old chinook 13.4 2013 harvest.
    Been vacuum packed in my fridge for over a year

    Planning to bitter with Magnum, but how much?

    Lots of cascade and chinook later on!

    So, I dunk sparged with another 8L (meant to use 6 - Oops!) and have ended up with about 14L in the FV.

    OG was 1042 so hopefully a nice 4% ish session ale!

    Did you boil the extra 2L off, or just shrugged it and aimed for a lighter brew?

    So, this is down to 1012 after 9 days, so just chucked in 10g of Cascade as a dry hop.

    Looking, smelling and tasting good so far!

    Just mashed in my next one!

    Got this bottled on Sunday afternoon with help from my daughter.

    Had a bit of an Oops when the bottling stick became detached from the hose!

    Twentysething bottles sitting in the fermentation fridge at 20 degrees.

    Will stick one half bottle in the fridge on Friday to see what it tastes like!
