Decided to do an evening brew today a 11.5 L batch of the Graham Wheeler Exmoor Gold made using an all grain kit from Worcester Hop shop (who kindly agreed to scale their kits down to this).

Numbers wise it came in at 1.043, two points off target alas, but could be worse.

First brew day in over 6 months today. I had a box of pilsner malts, hallertau mittlefruh hops and some MJ Bavarian yeast that I bought late last year and couldn’t remember what recipe I was going to follow, so winged it a bit. Think whatever I had in mind may’ve been 2 recipes as the OG has come in at 1.074, which is massively over what I’d do for a lager. 21l in the fermenter so see how it turns out, and it was a nice day so brewed outside!

All done. Two points over target gravity same as last time. The 200g hopstand proved a little difficult by blocking the strainer in the kettle when I was dropping the wort to fv. A little scratch with a sanitised spoon sorted that out.
I must make every effort to get another brew on next week as my stocks are very low. Ideally I'd like to get one on tomorrow but I've got other stuff to attend to,unless I get up very early.

Trying to get my consistency dialed in so brewed my NEIPA recipe.

Weighed out and crushed the malt fresh as I will do for the repeat brew in 2 weeks.

Weighed out all of my hop additions and sealed them up so next time they should be exactly the same. The top pack is the whirlpool addition then two separate dry hop additions. Todays whirlpool addition is in a jar ready for the brew.

The tried and tested use a jug to hold the tube in place. Get very foamy oxygenated wort this way.
Got first dry hop in two days and the second one at day 7. Recorded the SG of the mash, pre boil and into the fermenter to check I can match it next time. Adjusted water chemistry at the start and will match next week.

Well, I bought some parsnips... :D

But tomorrow I'm planning a Fisherman's Stout. I made this one from a recipe here in my very early days, and it turned out pretty decent, and I realised I had all the ingredients right there in the cupboard, so why not?

completely lost my brewing mojo recently but after a 9 month hiatus in a bid to get going again, have just put on a Razorback IPA kit.

In other news, I took delivery of a RAPT Pil recently and have had that going on a sugar wash this week as a trial and seems a really good piece of kit.

Fisherman's Stout went OK as far as I can, will check OG and pitch in the morning.

Pitched it with MJ M47 Belgian Abbey yest.
Hoping for a Leffe type beer.

Pleased with the Fisherman's. 14.6 litres @1045 = 73% BHE, which is good for me.

Today it was 21 litres of my Guinness clone OG 1,049, ended up with 22 litres OG 1,052 . Happy with that 1,200 litres for souring, last time was 650 ml for souring could barely taste it.
