    Brewed a Belgian Dubbel yesterday. Last attempt used Special X instead of Special B and did not work well. Let´s check if it get better.

    Brewed on Saturday: 5Gal of yet another "made-up" IPA design, this time an experiment using NZ Pacific Gem as flavour & aroma hops (I've read contradictory descriptions for use), with a 7kg grain bill, primarily Maris Otter, but including a bit of wheat & carapils, and Pacific Gem, Simcoe & Amarillo hops, 15g PG first wort, 20g PG steeped @ 80C for 15mins, and a drop of 60g PG & 50g Simcoe being DDH'd at high krausen (<1.060) & a 2nd drop of 60g PG & 50g @ 4 days (<1.025), with fermentation starting at 17C rising to a final 22C finishing temp.
    acheers.

    Didn't see a "What did you bottle?" so here I am.
    I bottled a Belgian Tripel. Was astounded to get the FG down to 1.012 with the dry yeast (Safale T-58 and MJ M-41). I thought something was wrong when the hydrometer almost sunk out of sight since I'm only used to seeing OGs lately (five batches in a row) where the hydrometer's been sitting up high like a sail boat.
    The OG on this Tripel was up there at 1.096. Happy all around. Funny that hitting an FG can make one's day.

    Brewed my Festive Ale this morning so it has about 3 months to be ready for the time of year I really don't want to think about yet.

    Why do I always take a taste of the hydrometer sample and then regret it?? Perhaps next time I will learn...

    Currently got 24 litres of pseudolambic in the kettle:

    60% Pilsner, 28.9% Wheat, 6.7% Spelt flakes, 4.4% flaked oats

    Mashed at 72C.

    Hopped with 50g aged hops (approx 4 years old) - assumed IBU after 2 hour boil of ~7IBU.

    Once the boil is finished, I'll cover with muslin cloth and leave in the garden shed to cool overnight. In the morning, I'll pour it into a glass carboy and add some Boon Geuze dregs and some (being about 1 year in the fridge, likely dead) dregs from my previous p-lambic megablend.

    Then it's time to cross fingers and pray to the Pajottenland

    Edit: image of hot wort overnighting outside. Hopefully will gather some bugs

    Hi guys,

    My first post but been brewing for a few years now. Just thought I'd post a quick review on a kit I've recently done (Wilko feeling hoppy IPA).

    Brewed with 1.5KG light DME added a hop tea made from the 10g amarillo and 50g citra and pitched a wilko ale yeast not the little pack that came with the kit. OG 1.048 would have liked it a little higher but happy enough.

    Day three added 25g citra dry hop, SG 1.010 (went off like a rocket). Gave it a swirl to encourage the yeast and left for a further 4 days. FG 1.003 ABV 5.9% not bad considering the OG.

    Pungent hop aroma when transferring to keg, primed with 200g light DME dissolved in a hop tea made from another 25g of citra. Left a for a week then move to a garage to chill. I made up 4 bottles to put in the fridge to taste early. After a week in the fridge cracked one open and drank all 4 within a couple of hours. Still a strong hoppy aroma and flavour, enough malt to stop it from been sour and a dry crisp finish.

    Great beer from a kit and would definitely recommend it.

    Just finished brewing an Earl grey pale. Consisting of Pale ale malt, Vienna, wheat malt and flaked oats. Hopped with magnum, citra and mosaic with early grey tea added in whirlpool. Going to dry hop with more mosaic and early grey.
