Bitsa recipe greats. Only imposible to reproduce. Bummer. I have this Imperial Stout thing made of home canned leftover assorted worts and total mungrel mix of ingredients and it is soooo good. Yet imposible to reproduce another one. Oh well.

    2014 Hallertauer Mittelfrueh so I guess its just the lesser storability of that type. Tested Altbier with old hops compared to new. Big difference. The old hops taste stale, astringent and smell a little off.

    Very big difference storing cool and storing sub-zero. I also have old hops, but they smell as fresh as the day I put them in the freezer

    Are you walking through a garden, like a scene from Lock Stock and Two Smoking Barrels?

    Back in my day, a probe was a probe, you know? The problem with probes these days is that they need special attention, not a walk through the snow to get to school without gloves or shoes or underpants. In fact......

    With a whimper. I realise after I shouldn't have used the word probe. The sensor! All of a sudden I cant calibrate it. Trying in the 7 solution its reading 8.5 followed by WRNG!
    Its farked isn't it? I think I got more than 12 months out of it and now I know how to mash right.

    As soon as you've had beers, the rest of your life is after beers.
