Re: Help cloning James Squire Sundown Australian Lager

Thanks for the advice Pistol. I'll definitely post the recipe once I've punched it all into Biabicus. I'd love to have a crack at this on the weekend but I'm having a bunch of mates around for a homebrew consumption session! I spose that's not a bad way to spend a weekend...

Re: Help cloning James Squire Sundown Australian Lager

Hi again fellas, I'm gearing up to have a crack at this and am looking for advice on yeast. Given that this is labelled as a lager I figured I should consider using a lager yeast and fermenting at 16c. It's a bit of a weird one because this straddles the ale and lager border. Thanks in advance. Agdi...

Thanks Contrarian!! That does sound nice. I might just give that a go. I'm currently in Germany trying to drink every Wheat Beer known to mankind but I'll definitely give that a whirl when I return. You sound like you really know your stuff. Out of curiosity, I've heard of some brews using actual Or...

Help cloning James Squire Sundown Australian Lager

OK. So the beer: Definitely has a sweet citrus aftertaste that keeps me coming back for more. Is moderately bitter. Is crisp. I think I can taste the biscuit malt associated with Helles lagers. I actually think this beer is hoppier than a lot of others have said. That's about as far as my uneducated...

Thanks very much Pistol! You've already managed to find more information than me.

I'm a bit of a flavour noob but I'll have a read through the material and have a go at describing the taste.

Thanks!

Help cloning James Squire Sundown Australian Lager

Hi All, Just wondering if anyone has ever come across a clone recipe for James Squire Sundown Australian Lager? I absolutely love the beer but it appears it was only ever intended to be a limited release and there isn't any information about it on the current James Squire website. I've also scoured ...

First BIAB - APA Amarillo - Final gravity after 8 days

Hi All, Just a quick update and lesson for new brewers. I tried my beer on Sunday and it was great. Prior to doing that I was definitely suffering from premature exclamation. As it turns out, the first beer I tried that made me worry was a) full of fermenter sediment and b) pretty young. A mate and ...

Haha! Premature Exclamation. That's brilliant! Thanks for the advice Patch. I've popped them in the fridge with a plan to try them again on Saturday which will be the 3 week mark. This will also coincide with the tutorial from my neighbour so either way I'm going to be tasting some great beers on Sa...

Bugger! I think I've failed at my first attempt... I think... The beer tastes very, very bitter. I'm not a brew tasting pro so I'm unable to accurately describe the taste. I'm not entirely sure why but I've got a couple of theories: 1) The higher Fermentation temperature has caused off flavours and ...

Thanks very much thughes. It's funny you say that because, after my post, I knocked up my second batch! I based it on the Little Creatures Bright Ale recipe.

Thanks very much for the advice guys. I'll take another reading on Tuesday and will likely bottle then if gravity is consistent and beer is a little more clear.

Looking forward to tasting it!

Thanks very much for your input joshua. It may be good the let the Beer clear a bit before Bottling as The Dregs/Lees may be very thick. So, when the dregs are clear is usually a good indication of when it's safe to bottle? The Beer may take 4-5 weeks to Fully Condition. Does this conditioning occur...

First BIAB - APA Amarillo - Final gravity after 8 days

Hi All, Firstly, congrats to all of you on such a fantastic forum full of brilliant contributions and a good culture. I had my first crack at BIAB 8 days ago. I used Ralph's Mini-BIAB guide and the APA Amarillo recipe along with the BIABicus. Being a newbie I missed a couple of gravity and volume re...

Hi All :salute: I got onto the idea of BIAB after a conversation with a neighbour who does it. I was explaining that I wasn't entirely happy with the quality of my U-Brew-It beer and he suggested I give BIAB a go. I'm a beginner and don't have any equipment yet. Very impressed with the site thus far!
