    Shooting for a 1.055 Waimea American Amber ended up with an 1.065 Red IPA.

    I am trying out some different brewing techniques. This one was to use RO with only a small acid addition, all salts went in the boil. Strangely enough my efficiency increased by 10%.

    Last week I did two no chills. With one hour whirlpool additions only.

    Any ideas for some uniques methods for next week?

    12 litres of Greg Hughes' Munich Dunkel today. It's nice to have a brew on the stove-top while giving the kitchen its weekly muck out. Going to have a go at Strange Steve's English Red IPA as I've got all the stuff in. Fancy a change from American/NZ/Oz hops and the lagery things I've been knocking out won't be ready for yonks. I'd like a lower final gravity though as I'm not fond of sweetish beers, which is Probably why I don;t drink many of the Belgian classics. Thinking of using US-05 or M42. I'll see what's in the fridge.

    Not a recipe as such, its from his Almanac where he gives the ingredients and hops used.

    I know his almanac well and have used it many times, although not recently. I'll look up Mansfield Bitter.

    Trying the Hercule Saison kit by Bulldog, but with 500g of dextrose instead of the kilo it wanted. Estimated ABV will be lower and started at 1.030 so hoping it would just clear 3.5% which should be ideal for a Summer session ale. If it stalls or ends up high gravity I may feed it a bit more.
    First time brewing a saison so am really doing it for the flavour as I have no idea what one should taste like.
    Came with 10g of yeast (unknown) and a teabag of Target.

    A basic session bitter made with Maris Otter and a little crystal and roasted barley. Hops are Northdown and East Ken Golding.

    11.5 L in the fermentor at 1.035 and pitched with S-04 somewhat darker than I was expecting: hoping this should come out about 3.4%.

    Really pleased with how it turned out actually, like a best bitter with a bit more hop punch :thumba:

    Today (Mo) was bottling day - 30 bottles (=28 half litres) - FG unchanged and the dry hop has made it a bit more hoppy. Quality Check in a weeks time.

    Brewed 24L of 'What the Fuggle?' Ale today using 100g of these lovely smelling Fuggle hops IMG_20200124_103706.jpg
    Undershot the mash temperature by about 3 degrees so I'm a bit worried it may attenuate further than planned to give a stronger but thinner beer than hoped for but we will see... Trying the CML Beoir yeast on this one instead of my usual S04.

    I am planning on racking 8L off to a separate fermenter after a week and adding the spent sloes from a batch of sloe gin to see what it comes out like.
