Dark Belgian Tripel
I'm not having a beer, I'm having four. It's called a tasting and it's classy
Left to right, Brown Ale, Grapefruit Session IPA, Falconers Flight IPA, Case Swap RIS
This was an enjoyable way to spend a Saturday!
McGuinns Brown Ale recipe courtesy of Strathbogie Brewing co - if you're ever at one of the country markets they are at, make sure to try out the beers. Really nice range of different beers I don't normally drink. Also walking around with their beer is the only time I've actually enjoyed being dragged to a market... -.-
Drinking my first attempt at the Bullshead Kolsch after gelatine and a few weeks in the keg, pretty tasty beer.
My American red ale. Yum.
Last glass from the 1 hour micro-biab (Golden promise and Motueka Smash).
Motueka is quite subtle, nice colour from the GP. No clarifying agents so it's al-naturalll.
Here you go - this isn't my recipe though it's one of Zainasheffs, so credit to him.
5.55 Kg MO
450g Light Xtal
227g Dk Xtal
85g Pale Choc
Mashed @ 67deg 1 hour
Recipe calls for 31g Horizon 13%AA @ 60m - I couldn't find this so used Magnum instead
28g each of US Cascade & Cent @ 10m
28g each of US Cascade & Cent @ 0m
My OG was 1066, can't remember FG (forgot to write it down) but came out at about 7%
Next time I do this I might reduce the Dk Xtal a little.
Carramunich 1 & 11
Touch of Choc & RB
Terrified Wheat AHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHH
That is one fine looking ale mate!
PAle Ale ~ 5g/l Mosaic keg-hopped
I split this beer three ways and did Cascade, Amarillo and Mosaic in each keg @ 5g/l. My fav is the Mosaic.
Smoked rye saison, also known as My Name is Earle
but really just wanted to show off the stein I scored from the local Oktoberfest
From a few weeks ago a Belhavens 80 Shillings for my Scottish mate , I thought it was a bit bland but has a nice malt balance now , my scottish mate love it and thought it was very close
Brewmans Golden Galaxy wheat beer , keg nearly gone will brew this again as a great summer ale . When I first kegged this I wasnt really impressed but let it age for a few weeks until a spot was ready, have to say Galaxy and Topaz is a great match together
Droid handed me a small keg of this on my way to Bega over the weekend (I believe the Amarillo dry hop).
Issues.... 6L keg wasn't anywhere near big enough!
6 non brewer standard mega swill drinkers smashed it, I only got one glass. Top brew mate
looks the goods mate. so no other additions? just cube?
Holidays are tough.

I usually use Wyeast 1007 but had the Kolsch yeast on hand.
Turned out just as good.
This was keg hopped because I split it three ways
There was a lot of hops at 20 (from WP) and then a lot at 0 = 45ibu's in a 1044-1008 beer
Somewhere around 8g/l total but who's counting?
That's a bit f'd up...for you at least...note to self, if MJ is travelling through to a party and I owe him big time, make it a proper keg FFS
