    Well yesterday I was given the all clear last min to do a brew, only my second time using the gf. I have the punkie ipa kit from malt miller so decided on that.

    5kg Maris otter
    Mash 17 litres at 65 deg for 1 hour
    Mash out 75 deg 10 min
    Sparge 11 litres

    Hops
    50g bravo 12 min
    18g chinook 5 min
    16g ahtanum 5 min
    16g cascade 5 min
    16g chinook 0min
    16g cascade 0 min
    16g ahtanum 0 min

    16g cascade dry hop
    16g ahtanum dry hop
    16g chinook dry hop

    Meant to do 19 litres at 1.055

    Got 16 litres at 1.062

    Forgot to put protofloc in too.

    Well here she is, forgot to use protofloc so she’s murky but the flavour is unreal. Not having had the original punk I can’t say how it compares but to the punk available now this smashes it out the park. Big thumbs up to malt miller

    200g of hops added late or post boil are going to give some haze, Perhaps the omission of the protofloc is not entirely to blame.
    As you say, this style is not really about clarity and needs to be drunk long before that might happen.

    Cheers!

Wrong, I somehow knocked the filter off and getting the stupid pump to work was an absolute nightmare, after what seemed like 10 days I eventually got the beer in to ferment, fingers crossed it’s ok. Will be adding bourbon soaked bourbon cask chunks in secondary for 1 month

    Love the way you've got the kids in on the cleaning. My two are so lazy they can barely lift their heads up from their ipads.
    100g fuggles at start of boil. Interesting one that, never done anything like it. Let us know how it turns out.
