Brewed a porter yesterday and pitched the yeast today. 12lb pale malt, 1¾lb chocolate malt and 1¾oz challenger hops with Mangrove Jack's Empire Yeast. 5 gallons (English not American) at 1054°. It should be good!

Did a 2 hearted ale clone today with some Cascade mixed in with centennial. Last week was a California common and an imperial stout using T58 and chinook based on northern Brewers recommendation. That finished fermenting in about 24 hours.

Brewed latest version of American Amber last night. Brew almost went to plan, a few points short of target but still should be over 5% so all good.

My attempt was a balls up. It wasn't dark enough. It has a nice malt taste but lacked the colour you would expected

This version I upped the dry hop a little and added a little more Chinook as previous version came up a little short..happy with the colour of this one..

I want to do a rye-heavy version sometime featuring Chinook for some spicyness

That looks spot on.

Rye adds a great mouth feel to the beer. I have a red rye IPA on at the minute. With 1 kg of rye malt in it

What percentage is the rye? I have liked a few Rye Ipa's but wasnt sure how much would be too much and then overpowering the hop flavour.

Tried a Rye bitter today, was a bit concerned over stuck mask stories so went a little conservative a modified a std bitter recipe reducing crystal from 350g to 250g and adding 350g of Rye Crystal. Pale reduced slightly from 3375g to 3300 & skipped 25g Black malt altogether. so total grain bill moved from 4100g & OG 1040 OG to 4250g & OG 1042. It did behave differently in the grainfather, normally there is initially an overflow into the er overflow and later settles down but still a good centimetre of wort above the top plate. Today no overflow at all and drained straight through plate no build up of wort over top plate at all. Looking forward to see how it turns out.
