    May I recommend keeping it around 5%. Mine ended up 6.75%, and three pints of it is a bit much in an hour, but easy to drink that fast :)

    MTB, the recipe is based primarily on Greg Hughes. I use a basic app and I'm unable to copy and paste it like the more fancy brew apps other members use.

    Typed up the old fashion way like a Durden Park circle recipe...

    80% Vienna, 14% Munich, 3% Melanoiden, 1% Choc (SRM 7, photo suggests higher). Northern Brewer 30g @ 60 min, 15g@ flame out (22 IBU). Yeast. Oktoberfest Lager WLP820. SG 1.054 FG 1.010.

    The fermentation schedule is based on Brulosophy fast lager.

    The head retension wasn't great and towards the end it looked like whisky. I don't know if it's the recipe, Biofine or a combination of both.

    I have found Hoppy Days the best price for Biofine(Brisbane) if I remember around $45 per litre plus freight.

    Craftbrewer will do 500ml bottles $27.50.

    I'm a bit nervous about buying anything over 250ml ATM, after chucking almost a full bottle out.

    I keep my bio in the cupboard with all my other salts, acid, whirlfloc, etc, etc. Anyway, got it out last night and held it up to the light and all looks good. I have 2 ales CCing ATM, so I gave each FV a gentle swirl and added 10ml of bio each. Will report back once I transfer to kegs.
    @Batz, I hear what your saying about racking to secondary, I moved away from that step years ago because of the oxidizes problems I was getting, so I'm reluctant to go back. However, if this doesn't work I will rack but only for the kegs that need to travel. Cheers.
