This weekend I'm planning on doing a 44L batch of a fairly basic base beer, then splitting into 2 cubes (weather and toddler permitting)

80% BB Pale malt
20% BB Wheat malt

1.058 OG

10 IBU of cascade at 60 minutes

Cube 1 will have a BIG whack of Cascade and Galaxy in the cube
Cube 2 will cubed as is to pitch Philly Sour, then 1kg of toasted coconut flakes and 2kg of tinned crushed pinapple at end of primary fermentation for a pina colada sour (idea stolen from @SponsorSFC )

Aborted my planned Summer Lightening clone last Wednesday in favour of Timothy Taylor's
Bolt Maker. So today I am brewing the Summer Lightening using the EKG hops as per recipe.

Yeast pitched, I am expecting a longer than usual lag time owing to a larger differential in pitched yeast and wort temperature. No idea what Summer Lightening is supposed to taste like but it is pale!

Just knocked out an American Brown Ale. Ahthanum and cascade hops went in at whirlpool for 60 mins @ 85 degrees. Sensational colour!

Made a second batch of Summer Lightening, found where I got the recipe.
For this batch swapped out the Challenger for Target and used Target for dry hopping.
Just call this Target Golden Ale.

90min mash and 90min boil is my minimum standard now 'you can taste the difference'.
Funnily enough I was reading through Eric Watson, The Roving Brewer I think it was episode 1 where he mentioned not to FWH. I have been doing FWH and do think it does make a difference to taste. Just goes to show that credentials doesn't always point one in the right direction. Though it could be down to individual taste.
I am expecting to see a write up from you shortly on the new Triumph hop.;)
