    Hi all,
    I've been using Malt miller since 2013, but never ventured on one of them kits.
    Untill now.
    As most know I don't follow exact to the recipe.....
    Especially the dry hopping, to me 4 days or 5 at the latest is where I'm comfortable at.
    Anyways, getting the kit in the hours, so be nice to follow the whole sherbang start to finish with pics n stuff.
    Might to fanny on with the recipe for 24l batch....as the keezers setup is up at Scotland.


    Description

    upload_2019-1-10_12-8-15.png

    Batch Size: 19ltr
    Original Gravity: 1.072
    Final Gravity: 1.014
    ABV %: 7.4%
    IBU: 30

    THE MASH
    Temperature °C: 65
    Length (mins): 60
    Out temp °C: 75
    Out time (mins): 10

    THE BOIL
    Boil time (mins): 60

    Additions and timing:

    30g Citra – Boil 10 min
    30g Cashmere – Boil 10 min
    40g Citra – Flame Out
    40g Cashmere – Flame Out
    40g Mosaic – Flame Out

    Secondary additions and timing:

    40g Citra – Dry hop for 7 days
    30g Cashmere – Dry hop for 7 days
    40g Mosaic – Dry hop for 7 days
    ( 4-5 days at the most!)

    Yeast: NBS Ale Yeast
    Fermentation temperature/steps: 20c

    Comments:

    Some attention to water treatment and avoiding oxygenation is advised when brewing a NE IPA.

    As i'm bit fragged with a cold just now and waiting on hop socks coming, I'll tackle the brew day in the next few days.
    Thank you for tuning in....

    yes I find it unbelievable that they sent it out without Citra would have been better to text or inform it was out of stock. Or even better as soon as the order was taken ask whether you wanted a refund or to wait for it to come back in stock with a approx date. They know most brewers work have specific days they can brew because of work commitments and I would have been very very disappointed. Too many companies taking your money without informing the paying customer it is out of stock and giving a option now thats good customer service

    I ordered the same kit and they did get in touch with me beforehand and asked if I wanted to hold the entire order whilst they got the Citra which should have been with them today.

    I said just send the lot and I will take the Citra when it arrives... I'm not in a rush for them yet.

    Not sure if Manxnorton had the same communication.

    hi guys,
    TBH, that's not like MM....ive only one mucked up order..but quick to rectify it.
    onto them like a tramp on chips!
    Luckily I have citra in the freezer or mt brew day would be crap.
    At least didn't have to go to my nearest H'brew shop n hope they got citra...or think on my toes for a another replacement.
    Maybe in the future i'm going to venture away from MM, see whats oot there as far as good service and cost.
    Lacksy daisy attitude TBH! as people say one thing missing and the brew could of went pair shaped....didn't they think I was ordering a KIT!! haha!

    oh well...
    30 min rest of the grain bed, don't know makes any diffence, as I take my time on the processes.
    we'll or I should see.

    I use Malt Miller kits all the time and find them really good, you do have to watch the yeast though; they state on their site yeast not included but they have sent yeast every time but once

    Interesting write up, Bri! Great to hear that you are still brewing, after going a bit quiet for a while.

    I currently have the use of only one and a bit arms, after fracturing the top of my left arm on Boxing Day.
    Probably I would be better advised to forget about brewing in the GF for the recuperation period, but I am just so impatient...

    Just made the same kit from a recipe pack from MM and yea it's definitely darker than I thought it would be.

    Smells great though.
