Can you/do you reiterate mashes? Works out to be a bit over 3/4 kg/l final volume..

Haha, I'm quite content with the real thing mate, looking forward to another pint or two in front of the Fire. The first bottle I had was a new experience, thanks for creating it👍

So we got a bronze for this at AIBA, pretty pleased as a first off the block release... Got some more refinement to do recipe wise so looking forward to next year's vertical ;)

Hellity hell yes!!!! Fuckity fucking fantastic. Real proud of you guys. I'm aware of exactly what a hard slog this beer was to make and get to market. It takes passion to draw upon that well of dedication to do the 24+ hour brew days, not to mention digging solutions to problems out of the murk of your brain at hour 18. You guys fucking rock. "Do you even iterate, brah?"

No mate, best thing you can do is ask for it your outlet, ask them to get it in, most powerful marketing tool ever is you guys asking for it..

I've sent 3 bottles to the one joint, first one fot smashed, second got lost and the third was hand delivered and I never heard another word or had a return phone call.. SA left me jaded and upset.

But please talk it up and ask them to get it in.. There are limited cases left (3 or 4 in my cellar) but I'm happy to get one over there ;)

Congrat's on the Gong, guys!

I assume you mean to:

 

1. Re-evaluate the benefits & pitfalls of #1, 

2. Schedule a re-think of the brew-day

3. Calculate the changes to the recipe

4. Establish the fermentation & transfer regime

5. Maturation & bottling schedule

6. Marketing

 

ALL in about 60 seconds of Free-Fall????

 

Yeah, OK. I reckon it's possible...

Why not? Open the gates of the non-linear mind a bit?

I actually used to use an Einstein technique to come up with solutions to coding problems. Take a nap on the couch with one hand holding a few marbles above a plate on the floor. You fall asleep enough to relax, hand opens, marbles hit the plate, solution in brain. Write quickly.

Probably not so good for a brew day ;)
