    Oh okay, I had just based that amount off of some recipes I saw - what I'll do is sample the beer first and then make a decision. Cheers!

    EDIT: By the way, I'm also adding some vanilla so I've got two vanilla beans split and soaking in some Sailor Jerry (didn't have any vodka) - at what stage is a good time to add that? I was thinking of just adding honey, pears and vanilla to the primary, no secondary, to minimise exposure to oxygen..

    Not really sure about the vanilla beans. probably wouldn't hurt to just add them to primary.

    Tasted 1 a couple of days ago, still a bit young obviously but not bad, head will improve presumably, however biggest complaint was lack of roasted flavour what's the best way to correct this lads?

    Threw together a slight adaptation of Schikitar's oatmeal pale ale for no chill. 5 minute steep hops went in the cube. Ended up over gravity by a couple of points due to extra evaporation from the 30 minute steep.

    Nice job @Wobbly74 - that's definitely a 'slight adaption' haha! ;)

    I've been tweaking my recipe, going to make a few small changes which will involve dropping the acidulated malt and water additions (I just don't think our local Tassie water needs it), I'm also going to throw some simcoe into the middle of the hop schedule to try and draw on some of those more piney notes.

    Let me know how your brew turns out! :)

    Looking forward to it @Schikitar , just need to clear out the dark Czech lager and the dunkel currently hogging the fermentation fridge. I've also got my big pig hop hog clone sitting waiting to go in the cube so might ferment the both of them at the same time :)

    Not war hog, but this is my hop hog no chill attempt - it's still in the cube so can't comment on taste yet, but it's a revision of a prior recipe that didn't have enough late additions. 30 minute steep with 5 minute additions in the cube.

    Brewing a robust porter tomorrow, won't post recipe until I know it's decent but it's got maris otter, dark crystal, chocolate, brown and a touch of special b. Looking to ferment with either M42 or maybe M15 to accent the special b.. ?? Going non traditional with the hops, chinook and cascade..

    That recipe above, the ipa, came out to check it just now and it's gone off with yeast spewing out the airlock. Never seen us05 do that before. Set at 18 degrees too. Maybe pitched too much slurry
