    Many thanks for the "Welcome Back" messages. I'm glad to say that I'm still going strong and still brewing despite advancing years! athumb..

    I'm afraid that the Wilko Hoppy Copper Bitter is being finished off as I speak and the Wilko Light Golden Lager with Grapefruit has taken quite a battering as well. My excuse is that we had visitors! :confused.:

    The good news is that I now have a new brew conditioning as follows:

    WILKO SWEET NEWKY BROWN
    30th December 2019

    Started with Wilko Sweet Newkie Brown Kit and 1.5kg of Coopers LME
    Made as per instructions to 20 litres.
    Added yeast nutrient.
    Cooled to 20*C, took OG and pitched kit yeast .
    Fermenting at 18*C in Brew Fridge.
    6th January 2020
    Started cold-crash to 10*C.
    9th January 2020
    Transferred to PB “A” and Growler C.
    Added 10g of sugar to PB & Growler.
    Carbonating & Conditioning at ambient. (+/- 10*C).
    DETAILS
    OG = 1.038
    FG = 1.010
    ABV = 3.15%
    Kcal per Litre = 329 Kcal

    Plus an IPA in the fridge!

    Here's a photo of a corner of the new Log Cabin (aka Dutto's Brewery). Enjoy!

    My latest brew is a WILKO IPA WITH GRAPEFRUIT JUICE

    9th January 2020
    Started with Wilko IPA Kit, 0.5kg of Muntons DME and 1 litre of Tesco Graefruit Juice.
    Made as per instructions to 20 litres.
    Cooled to 20*C, took OG and pitched kit yeast plus Crossmaloof USA Pale Ale yeast.
    Fermenting at 18.5*C in Brew Fridge.
    18th January 2020
    Started cold-crash to 10*C.
    20th January 2020
    Transferred to PB “B” and Growler D.
    Added 10g of sugar to PB and carbonating in fridge for 2 days then ambient. (+/- 11*C).
    Growler D carbonating with CO2 at 5psi
    DETAILS
    OG = 1.037
    FG = 1.008
    ABV = 3.81%
    Kcal per Litre = 354 Kcal

    I pulled a small glass today; way before it's had time to mellow or condition! It was extremely bitter and the grapefruit taste predominated. I live in hope that over the next few weeks it will smooth out and mellow.

    Today I started a Wilko Hoppy Copper Bitter with 0.5kg of Muntons Beer Enhancer.

    I am now getting over the move and building up stocks to a suitable level. With 60 litres in PB's and Growlers (Lager, Stout, IPA and Newkie Brown) and 20+ litres (Bitter) in the fridge I am nearly at "Critical Mass"; so the next brew should follow the 2+2+2 system and after that I should be able to sit back and take a bit of time to enjoy the fruits of my endeavours!

    Here's hoping!

    Glad to see you're back in the beer at last. There's nothing more disruptive than moving.
    "Critical Mass" is when you're down to your last 100 or so litres and you can see bare wall where the stacked crates should be! This triggers a frenzy of activity of pressing every available vessel including the dog's bowl into brewing more, wild and panicked ordering of sacks of grain and obscure hops and a general suspending of all non-essential activities such as gardening and decorating. Bring in on.
    Here's hopping!

    Happy daze, I say.
