That moment you dry hop and accidentally use the wrong hop, but it's amazing. 24/5/16

        I normally get 120+, while breaking the first AND second laws of thermodynamics: I end up with more grain than I started with, and my kettle heats itself up by sitting there with the burnerooff while the gas bottle fills itself up.

        Was a weekend for it. I jagged a 93% out of nowhere. Might throw out all hydrometers and measuring equipment just in case.

        The other thing I did that helped a lot was got an all-fridge for fermenting. I always put on 2 brews at a time now.

        Neb, it's for a reason mate, things went horrible a few years ago, I'd hate to see it go south again, folks that want in on bb's know where to look and do so periodically, have a look at the views in there, plenty of hits...

        Not to mention when the whole list of recent topics was bulk buys or whinging about a certain bulk buy. I personally would like to see buys from sponsors back in the recent threads but understand why it can't happen. Subscribing to the bulk buy forum means I don't miss out though.
