Making invert sugars here-
Making Brewers Invert | half a cat
I know a few brewers on other forums have used that method of making invert with good results. As I bought 25kg don't think I will be tryng it soon.
No 25kg is a fair bit:lol:
I'm going to go for my misses choice of recipe from the book. Already ordered the ingredients from get er brewed. ( Anyone know how I get the discount for next time?)
It's the Worthington white shield.
Anyone tried this one? Be first time I've tried northdown hops
I borrowed the book from someone and copied a good few recipies down.Not sure which edition it was however.
Have brewed a couple of the recipies and although none were c##p,they seemed to leave me wanting more from the beers, a tad bland.IE, did a Banks's bitter. Came out probably spot on for colour,but was just not hitting the spot.
The Craft Brewing thing has made the beers of the 1970's and 80's seem a bit dull, TBH. No great appetite these days for a watery 3-4% ABV drink that tastes like it was designed to fit a cost paring methodology.
The ones I have done include the SH Ruby Mild, Exmoor Beast, Exmoor Gold, Black Sheep Riggwelter and JWL Moonraker. I like the look of the Old Peculiar, the Robinsons Old Tom, Gales Festival mild and one or two others.
I did Old Peculiar,came out ok as it happens. Went down well with those who had early bottles. The remainder turned into gushers:twisted::twisted:
Is there a calculator for the temp adjustment for strike water before the grains are added?
Or does anyone just have a rough guide to say 2.5kg of grain which is a rough amount of grain for 10l batches.
Lost a few degrees last time so don't want the same error to happen today.
Unfortunately wheeler doesn't give any info on this in the book.
P86 'full mash beers'
I use the one from Jims. I find if I dough in half then give things a stir then dough in the other half it's very accurate
I've just been challenged by my father-in-law to brew up a clone of Riggwelter for autumn/Christmas. I see it's in this book and folks have brewed it. I've only had the beer once or twice and not for many years. Is the recipe good for it? If so I've been looking for an excuse to buy this book. :-)
Prob a bit early but how did this turn out?
It's one of the very few stouts I can try out from the book
I start the Worthington sheild today. Have fun with whatever anyone else is brewing. Was going to add fuggles but I'm now sticking to the recipe
Just starting to come good now after a few weeks, very lightly carbed, not much head tasting great though

I had a couple of Riggwelters in a pub on New Year's Eve and brewed the GW clone because of it. My version was slightly different in that I used First Gold for Challenger and more Progress for Fuggles.
After 2-3 months in the bottle it is very good.
Cool. Yea I forgot to add some wheat to my last batch so I'm not expecting great head retention. I just stuck to the recipe this time.
