these are basically a batch of their 'Adelaide hills pale ale'.
So your getting the very freshest and best allgrain wort possible.
Once it gets cooled it goes into 15 litre drums like ESB.
I don't think you could find a better product going around.
These will sell like hot cakes.
Just picked mine up, with the American Ale Wyeast.
I'm going to do it without watering down OG 1060 final of 1013 -1017. IBU = 42
It comes with a good instruction sheet (which is tailored to whether you want to do it watered down, or heavy).
The instruction sheet also tells us it's made with
"100% all grain wort comprising English floor malted barley and a blend of australian and english specialty malts. Chinook and Cascade hops imported from the Yakima valley for bittering flavour and aroma. Piccadilly Natural spring water is used exlcusively throughout."
If I was getting two, I'd add some more IBU's and make a Skunk Fart !
yeah i am just gunna use it like it is with a litre starter.
(what i know i do allgrain anyway. yeah yeah. still i reckon a few allgrainers will like the idea of doing one of these on a week you don't have time to brew)
These must be flying out the door.
Put mine down this morning with the American Ale Wyeast.
This was my first time with a liquid yeast, Made a 1.5 Litre starter with 150Gm dried malt. Bunged it in me 5 Litre demijohn last night. This morning there was no real foaming or anything but the starter was bubbling and there was a thin build up of yeast on te base of the container, so I figured that was good enough. filled a crowny stubby with some of it and but the rest into the brew (after aerating like a mofo - the wife thought I was crazy at 6am).
the Grumpys actually made a little booboo. There was 17 litres (instead of the advertised 15) so there's a bonus B)
Because of this I thought I'd add an extra 2 litres of water giving me an OG of 1051. Tasted good too!
Yeap the containers they got were 2 litres bigger than they wanted or even thought they were when they got them.
I think they'll stick to 17l for them because they wouldn't want 2 litres of head space in there.
These sound bloody great. Hope they have something like this late next autumn. Dont want to take a chance with all this heat. Excellent for a lazy bugger like me as well. All the works been done for you. Oh well , heres hoping.
Racked this off to secondary this morning (a bit too long in primary - it's a busy time of year !).
SG - 1005 ! That's a bit lower than I was expecting. I've seen a few others commenting the same on the Grumpy's forum.
The taste from the sample tube was "ok". With a low gravity like that I'm sure it'll taste much better cold. It's pretty cloudy too, but I've never used this yeast before so don't know if that's just how it always goes.
