    hallow all,
    just finished the second brew day until I hand back the GF n stuff back @BeardedMag thax again bruv.
    the brew was going to be a bit Brian seat of ya pants affair...had the recipe done..grains hops n all that done..then changed my mind on loads if thing!!!
    stepped mash...only coz I can, ill look at my old notes etc n see if it makes any difference..
    Mash schedule:
    protein n whatsitchops rest 52c @ 30 mins
    Beta 65c @ 30 mins
    Alpha 72c @ 15mins
    mash out 78c @10 mins.

    Fursty ferret clone-(nearly) 23l
    no chill
    3.47kg marris otter
    440g crystal
    350g red x
    220g flaked maize
    150g rice hulls.
    12g challenger @ 60 mins
    12g EKG, Fuggles @ 10 mins
    49g dry hop @ 4 days...(To be decided)
    English ale yeast
    they mention orange peel in the boil...didn't do it...maybe later on.

    been a long long time since I ever followed up all the way from recipe maker to final pour n taste...
    Still got a long we for conditioning but it lacks hoppiness....
