Munich Dunkel in the lagering keg. So that's what they meant by bread crust as a flavour descriptor! 4/9/16

        Boy, if I served it to my kid I'd have to cut the crusts off.

        I'm pretty excited about this one. My first two German lagers, Octoberfest and MD have come out great, on to the Bock!

      Made a comment to daetripper about a nice brew rig in "show us your brewrig". He said I should look through the whole thread. Wish me luck, I'm going in...

        I believe in a lot of strains more sulphur is produced at lower temps. Lower temps at the start are critical, so you basically just shrug it off and gently step up the temp after a few days.

      Who knew all it would take to get me out of the house and exercising again is a silly game chasing imaginary creatures? Gotta catch them all!

        Ordinarily my kids won't leave the driveway without me being with them, but give them an iPad each and they will happily walk around the neighbourhood looking for those things!

        Tasting from the fermenter showed great promise on the Celtic which is good as the last batch was infected, looking forward to tapping it this weekend.

        Dead easy, a teaspoon of this and a teaspoon of that. However if using that system, don't put in a teaspoon of the other.
