        Very commendable Spiesy, couldn't open that link but have signed up as a regular supporter of Peter Mac, it is pitiful to see the kids going through cancer.

      11.5kgs into my BM50MK2 and 87% efficiency - wow. Gladfield Pilsner brings the mad crazy sugars!

        Have tasted one with, and have heard others taste/smell DMS. Not sure what the boils were like so not sure if this was the problem...

        I have used Gladfield Pilsner and had no DMS. 100% pilsner, 90min boil and WLP 830. I always do a D-rest with lagers.

      My first oatmeal stout has been somewhat of a disaster at every stage - just not meant to be. Hard to believe that a total of 9.4% dark roasted malts (choc, roast barley and black malt) has given this beer SFU roast.

        Stu, I doubt 0.6% would have made a difference... I don't know, to be honest mate. I LOVE stout, but rarely brew it.

        Yob, that's a reasonable suggestion, but that would could potentially ruin another 20L of beer! I'll struggle through.

      How would you describe the flavour and aroma of Czech Saaz? I have a Pilsner on tap, that has peach vibes... all Czech Saaz, weird, but very nice.

        Martin, WLP800, I think it was fermented at 10-12 degrees (was brewed back in Oct, and I didn't take notes. Lagered for 2-months at 2-degrees).

        Lethal, 70g at 60mins. 50g at 20mins. 30g cube hopped - 20L batch. There may have been another 20g dry hopped. So, a shiteload of Saaz.

        It does taste nice though.

      Return from a couple of nights away, and my nice hoppy American Amber is gone. 15L worth has seeped out through a pinprick hole in the bottom of my keg. Kegerator is a mess, and I can only assume the bulk of the beer has seeped through the floorboards as it is nowhere to be seen.
