    Strain liquid, disgard grains, reboil so sterile.

    Added:
    Add 8lts water
    25gm Fuggles hops – boil 30 mins {60 mins = extra bitterness}

    Then Add;

    Add liquid to fermenter barrel with 3kg Thomas Coopers light malt, top up to 23lts and 11.5gm yeast. SO5 Safale.

    Carapils wont do much ( I would swap it for wheat )

    How dark is the Victory malt ?

    I'd be adding a portion of the dry malt to the boil to aid hop utilisation, say 400g or so.

    Agree with dbs re the carapils
