Brewing the following and was wondering if it seems ok and all.
I've never used chinook before, so I'm not sure what to expect :)
Have read it is very overpowering thus the 2:1 ratio in my recipe.
What do you think? suggest? Cheers

OK this is what I actually made (made a few adjustments to the hop additions)
And all I can say is WOW WOW this rocks.
Already at a young age it is beautiful!

By FAR the best to date doing Kits and bits


Just thought I'd share :)

Looks the good mate.

You can make some real stunner's with a little thought, and this looks like one of them.

Glad you're enjoying it

I like the Coopers Pale Ale as a base. Goes great with a few hop additions.
