    hi all,
    well had ago we a lager for a change, or should I say a pilsner.
    a Peroni type o thing.
    No big probs, even one handed getting the fv into the chest ferm chamber.
    3 days and no sign of nowt! heard WLP800 could be a PITA.
    so I done a good old stir, raised temp....n this morning life!
    back down to 12c...
    the English IPA after 8 days still going lol. thinking of dry hop tomorrow.
    strawbeer-vanilla milkshake IPA carbing up nice, lactose before bottling...must say that has to be the best tasting IPA ive had...even though the vanilla was dominant slightly.
    but...…………...itching to get a brew on.lol
    Later everybody,
    Bri

    How Do ,
    I'm a big fan of blending different yeast strains for effects on fermentation and taste ! ,
    Let us all know how it eventually turns out please ;
    Cheers

    How Do BRI ,
    If you really want to have a good go at blending different yeast strains, the Boddingtons IP recipies I've popped up are good for the following blend :
    Yorkshire Sq @ 50%
    Burton Type @ 50%
    @ Drop to 2nd f.v : Burton 25%
    Yorkshire 50% Edinburgh 25%
    And rouse every 8-10 hours until 1.005-6° above racking gravity , max temp 20.25°C ,
    Cheers
    Edd

    Good to see your still brewing Bri.TBH ain't been around much myself though lurking a bit.
    Just put an order in for some grain and another Corny from THBC so looking to get a Red Ale on next week using a bit of Red X malt which I've never tried.

    Hi @Bigcol49 no only seen with your link and looks a great deal though I got mine from http://www.thehomebrewcompany.co.uk...-corny-keg-19lt-ball-lock-grade-a-p-3709.html
    and with 5% discount and a fantastic customer service it works out much the same not to mention it'll be here Monday at the latest as it was dispatched yesterday so shall be down to DPD.
