    Doing GH Nelson today but tinkering a bit as will add a little more at flameout. I want to get the full benefit of the Nelson Sauvin flavours as a hop.

    Sat in the morning sun waiting for water to get to mash temp.

    Mmm... so deviated a little further away from the GH recipe.

    Had to use biscuit malt in place of cara .. only 275g and using MJ M44 yeast.

    All boiling away nicely .

    I should have bottled my latest pale but have suffered a flare up of sacrolitis and have been feeling miserable all day....
    Had some happy pills and a bit better so have prepared some allotment rhubarb to add to some gin..Mrs Clint's idea!

    Flaming Nora - blow out tube aka useless:

    M44 went Whappy and nearly blew the kid off , all leaking down the side.

    Nothing seems to be coming through the blow tube , and it’s not blocked.

    Answers on a postcard ?

    ...leaking down the side...snap the lid back on and press the lid down. Tube may be blocked inside the bucket.

    Another Burton Pale Ale tomorrow. Still have some past their bbd malt and hops. I did the heavy work this afternoon, this evening there's a meeting of the brewers' guild, and tomorrow it's brewing time!

    Trying the GH Cali Common today.
    Didn't quite hit the numbers but not displeased with 3 points off. Struggling to get wort down to pitching temp so it's now in my brew fridge.

    Also, as is customary on a brew day I had a sneaky sample of the last brew - my Vienna Cascade and Citra APA, and it is rather tasty. The best brew so far. In fact I'm so pleased with it, the next brew day in a couple of weeks will see me brewing it again, as 45 bottles ain't gonna last long with this sunny Easter weekend!

    As the weather was so nice, I decided to have and outdoors brewday. Other than struggling to get my tablet to connect to the Grainfather for a few minutes, it all went smoothly plus it's far easier to hose the patio down than to mop the floor in my brewtility room.

    Made a batch of Old Smoky Goat Biter, a deep and beguiling strong English style ale. Lashings of the finest Maris Otter crushed pale malt, a whole pound of decadent mixed crystal malts for flavour, richness and colour, some homemade applewood smoked malt and a pinch of the darkest black malt to raise the colour to perfection. Then bittered with English Challenger leaf hops and two helpings of the finest Worcestershire Goldings hops for the perfect English ale flavour.

    This is not just beer this is Mmm & Sss Beer.

    Finally got around to brewing today, only my second brew of the year which is shocking. Brewed an American amber ale which is one of my favourite styles. Hoping for lots of malt, some crystal sweetness and plenty of hop flavour.

    19 litre batch

    2kg pale malt
    1kg Munich
    1kg Vienna
    250g light crystal
    250g medium crystal
    250g melanoiden

    25 IBU of magnum boiled for 60 minutes
    75g cascade at flameout

    OG 1.051. US05 on the job at 17C

    Will dry hop with cascade and Citra after fermentation.

    350g Wheat Malt
    150g Golden Syrup
    55g Blackstrap

    Mashed @ 69c - 60 Minutes / 72c - 30 Minutes

    First attempt at the Pineapple and apple WOW today using GV5 yeast. Bit worried as the quantity of sugar seems massive, but will top up to neck when it calms down a bit.

    Bottled a cider yesterday made using re-used yeast from a Simply Cider kit that is now in the cold.

    Running out of bottles so bought some more swing tops from The Range, and also fell for an American style IPA kit - as I needed the smaller bucket supplied in it for fruit wines later for £24

    I know you guys don't rate the bottles too well so will see how they do. First annoying thing is they don't fit back in the box with the caps on!
