    Users Of The "no Chiller Method"

    Racked the APA today and gravity read 1.008 from 1.052 no off flavours at all just a little green @the moment but it did have 170g of hops in it. Cant wait for the end result but i have done 3 other "no chiller" brews since the APA and also convinced two mates to give it a go . Cheers
