Whirlpool addition and dryhop.

Man I love Riwaka, it's my fav hop at the moment. I've been using 100gms of Riwaka flowers keg hopped in 20ltr so 5g/l and it is amazing!

This is after a big WP addition obtaining the total IBU - for me usually somewhere around the abv x 10 so a 4.5% beer would be 45ibu of other IPA / PA hops


Pils around 40%
Munich around 40%
Wheat around 15%
CM1 or 2 (up to 5%)
whoops and also some acidulated to keep the mash pH at 5.2 (I actually go down to 4.8 with no problems) and sparge accordingly

I have done the above with no munich as the base and 65 % Pils and 30% wheat with some acid and cmunich

mashing between 64 and 66

was using US05 for ages but now really enjoying S04 even with it's cloudyness it's really tasty with lots of late hops
