    I started an AG Doom Bar clone after being bought the whole kit.

    SG was supposed to be 1.040, but I was reading 1.055 with 18l of wort after the afternoon.

    It's cooling at the minute, in the brew fridge I made using an inkbird and heater pad, yeast will go in shortly!

    The very nice lady at the muntons stand at brew con last weekend gave me a Cwtch kit :hat:, so today I brewed my first liquid extract kit.
    20L looks a bit lost in the FS though :laugh8: 20191201_124051.jpg 20191201_204406.jpg

    After the farse that was my Norse Dark Strong I've gone back to basics (sort of) with a hoppy best bitter / saison split batch.

    74% Golden Promise, 10% Abbey Malt, 10% Flaked Barley, 6% Dark Crystal, used a hopping schedule from @foxbat with 10g each Bramling Cross / First Gold at 15 min, 15g each at 10 min and 25g each at 5 min, also go 7g of Admiral at 60 min for 36 IBU. OG was 1.041 which was 1 pt over target and I got an extra 0.5L. The 15 L of bitter get Wyeast 1469 West Yorkshire and the saison is Wyeast 3726 Farmhouse Ale, both at 20c, the former should finish at 1.010 for 4% and the latter could go anywhere between 1.004 - 1.008 for 4.2 - 4.7%.

    Realised the other day that the last time I used a non-kveik strain was January, there's a few brews in my notes with Yorkshire and Scottish ale strains but they were my mates batches, it's weird not having the fermenter bubbling already and not having the brew fridge up at daft temperatures. At least the water up here is cold enough that chilling to 18 - 20c was easy.

    Hi Clint,

    Your recipe is similar to one I'm just planning except I am using azacca hops instead of Amarillo. What's the PiA yeast like? I have never heard of it before and might give it a try.

    23 litres of 'dark something' crap I'm just making up with chocolate malt, pale chocolate, chocolate wheat, roasted barley, cara amber, porridge and special B. The dark grains are 12% of the grains. Just stirred the mash and it tates bloody great. I haven't even decided on the hops yet. Just winging it.

    Yesterday I put an apricot mead together. Can of apricot purree, four pound of honey, water to 6.6 liters, nutrients, etc.

    Had this purree over a year. Thought it was time.

    All the Best,
