Just finished sanitizing my bottles. I'm bottling 2 fermenters of Canadian blonde tonight. Both hopped with Nelson and Amarillo. One I added some steeped grains. Should be a good comparison. I've heard good things about this kit so I hope it turns out nice.
An almost identical thing happened to me. I was running 2 submersible heaters and one crapped out. When it short circuited it tripped the safety switch on my powerboard and the power was out all night. By the time I had one back up and running the brew was sitting at 16 degrees. It started...
Well for anyone that cares I finally tasted my brew today. It was a coopers original lager with 1kg BE2 and 250g DME. I dry hopped with Nelson on day 7 and left them in there for 5 days. I went a bit pussy on the amount i used (10g) because of the mixed response I got on here about them. They...
Yeah an anti GMO friend of mine who likes constantly spamming me on facebook with anti GMO stuff posted this also. Funny thing is that i think they are so blinded by the GMO crap they forgot that the actual ingredient in beer that is not good for you is alcohol. I love drinking the stuff myself...
I dry hopped a kit brew with some Amarillo hops and tasted it for the first time last night. OMFG it was good and now I want to make another brew with even more hoppy flavour in it. I was thinking of boiling some hops in a little DME to achieve this. As I'm adding this to a kit I suppose extra...
Can't believe he is out of the coma after being under for so long. There were news reports saying that 'only a miracle' could bring him out of the coma. Hopefully he hasn't lost too much mental capacity.
Its amazing how when drinking at the cricket somebody always seems to go out when you are lining up for a beer or visiting the amenities :) Also yes it is way too expensive the same as everything else at the footy.
Poor dude wasn't that old either. Apparently he had some quad bike accident a few years back and wasn't the same after it. I've heard rumors he died of a seizure or something. Yes he was the best character on the Young Ones.
To all the Nelson haters I'm dry hopping with 10g of it tomorrow night (hate me now). Never tasted it and hopefully it wont ruin the brew. Amarillo is my fav. I dry hopped with fuggles once and didn't like it but from what people are saying here it isn't supposed to be used for dry hopping.
The first brew I've ever dry hopped tastes a fair bit like little creatures (well the wort did I haven't tasted the carbonated and bottled end product yet)
