I've done the porter and the pils.

The porter is lovely - I only made it up to about 19Ltrs so it's a pretty thick and tasty drop. No markings on the hops or grains so I don't know what was in it. It's about 9 months old now and getting better.

The pils was nice - the grains were marked vienna and the hops were unmarked. The supplied saf-lager was probably not the best yeast to use for an authentic pils but it made a very nice bitter lager in the end. None of this left as it went down very easily.

For everyone's info, the American Pale has been by far the most popular out of the five ... and there is no guessing what hop we use in that one.

The test formulation that we did last year won 1st place at the 2003 Bathurst Comp ... good enough indication that we got that one right.

Current varieties are:- American Pale, Lawson's lager, Patterson's Pils, English Bitter & Old Australian Porter.

I'd like to say they can't be matched, but that's not true ... they are just another of the ever improving products that are available to us brewers these days!

Gotta love it eh! :chug:

What sort of temperature control is required whilst boiling the extract? Does it require the usual 68 degrees as most all grain boils do, which means that it's impossible without a thermometer, or a slow simmer is ok?

Or am I just getting confused?????

Water boils at 100 degrees. The 68 is for mashing.
