Haha, no, I have a demijohn and a carboy for 10l batches and two of these for 20l.For some reason I imagined you were adding big chunks of coconut - would be entertaining at least watching you trying to shove them through the neck of the carboy!
By the way, do you use carboys for everything? I've always just used buckets because that's what I've always used - still seems strange to see something different.
Ooh, hark at you Mr Fancy Pants with your fancy yeasts! Fingers crossed it's as good or even better than last timeCooled and pitched Verdant IPA yeast
Good callCooled and pitched CML Midland, I was toying with pitching MJ liberty Bell but decided to save that for my Broadside Clone that i'll do in the near future.
Can't speak for where y'all are but it's been peeing down 24hrs+ in Berkshire and looks set to continue! I imagine you're in some tropical paradise though. Put my spare time to good use instead trying to figure out how and where to squeeze an extra fridge into my garage.putting us all to shame getting that much done on a sunny Friday
Yes, think they may work well together.An interesting twist on the fuggleduck there. Willamette and first gold has my mouth watering! That should be a cracker. Actually all three beers should be great. That reminds me, I need to get a wheat beer on soon.
Amazing what you can do when the kids are out of the house!Good work fella, that's some serious commitment to do all that in a day
Been a bit quiet since my epic brewday 2 weeks ago, I dry hopped my 3c's ipa with 40g of citra,cascade and centennial last wednesday and started to cold crash yesterday, emptied out my beer fridge to fit in the coconut stout. The coconut fell to the bottom remarkably quickly.Ok... so very busy Brew day today before I start my nights later!!

You used Lallemand Verdant IPA for this one didn't you? Will be interesting to see what that brings to the partyI dry hopped my 3c's ipa with 40g of citra,cascade and centennial last wednesday
Don't know it, don't have the book. But judging by a quick Google a few people have set it up as a kit from The Malt Miller - hopped with Columbus and Chinook right? The IPA I just sent you is Chinook, CTZ (a.k.a. Columbus) & Simcoe, though the grain bill is just Golden PromiseI've just ordered hops for a Mosquito Amber Ale from James Mortons book. Anyone brewed this?
Yes, looking forward to bottling it tonight, the smell was amazing but you only get a good feel of what it's going to turn out like when you bottle don't you.You used Lallemand Verdant IPA for this one didn't you? Will be interesting to see what that brings to the party

I did one last year and really enjoyed it, not changed the recipe much, just added whirlpool hops, I used 100g of each, how much did you use out of interest?I think that 3C is pretty much the one I made a while back, with Centennial, Cascade, and Citra. Verdant yeast, anyway. Due to my poor efficiency, it wasn't as strong as it should have been, and on this occasion I think I made a snap decision to *not* add a little sugar to top it up. But I am still very pleased with it.
Just dropping the temp after the boil to something around 75c and dropping in some hops, stirring occasionally for 20 mins or so, I've noticed a big difference in the 'aroma' of my latest beers. My dry hops were 40g of each, it's the first time I've dry hopped in awhile, I'm going to bottle it later so am looking forward to seeing how its turned out.Nothing like that much.
I know nothing of this 'whirlpool' of which you speak. But for dry-hopping, in an 11-litre batch (so rather less than half), I used 30 g of Cent, 24 g of Cascade, and 11 g of Citra., divided between and bunged into the demi-johns.
I would say no. Cheesy is how I would describe a pack of Challenger I binned because it was past its best.Just a quick question to anyone who passes by, I've opened an old pack of nelson sauvin, it does smell a bit cheesy, is this normal for nelson, I cant remember.... it's been in the freezer for a year or so but unopened.. wondering if I should use it or not.
