23L English Golden Ale with New World hops to finish.
Interesting colour from the carared!Bit of a problem brewday today.
Far from impressed with the new Gen 3 fermenter and 2L short on volume
Plus I had to change the recipe last minute - wanted to showcase Medusa hops but when I opened them they had an odd herbal/garlicky character that I didn't care for.
I did manage to use up every last grain in stock though

Its not quite as dark as it looks but the carared was a last minute addition... wasn't in the original recipe but was the only thing left in my grain stash after taking all the other grains out, so I thought I'd chuck them inInteresting colour from the carared!
Got my fingers crossed with this one as I just realised I used only chemsan at only 50% of the required concentration.Just brewed a 5.4% rye pale ale. Bittered with Challenger. Whirlpool additions of challenger, bramling cross and mandarina bavaria. I will dry hop with mandarina bavaria as well.
Don’t worry too much, I’ve had a grommet fall in before when pushing the air lock in! I’m sure as long as it was clean it will be fineNot brewed anything for a few weeks. Last night I broke my "don't brew whilst under the influence of alcohol" rule
And got a Cooper's Canadian blonde on the go.
All went well except I'd fitted the lid and instead of removing it again to fit the airlock, I ended up pushing the grommet into the brew
Oh well, probably ruined now. Du'oh.
The only thing sage about me is my top end fly rod!American Amber rebrew. After the sage advice of @Clint all flavour hop additions sifted to the hop steep. Also switched the chinook for Amarillo. Swig from trial jar very promising, strong toasty malt backbone, more style appropriate bitterness and the burnt orange Amarillo notes a better complement for the malt.
