MO is Pale Malt Yetti !! I've got MO and Golden promise not decided which to go with. Would it be wrong to blend them 50/50 ?

I hope everyone is good to go. My stuff arrived yesterday ( hops and yeast). I'm using WLP023 Burton Ale and will be slanting from the vial dregs so if anyone of you is into bulking up from slants let me know and I'll pop a slant in with the beers when I ship them.

Quick thought :think: anyone got a good label template for the bottles.

:luck:

Doh!!!

I hate it when things are called by different names, it is hard enough to learn as it is.

I use Malt Miller (Rob) who is very forgiving, and usually corrects my orders (great service)

I guess then I am all set, Brewday is Sunday,

Would love to try a sample of the dregs, in with the test beers, if that is ok.

Thanks again.

Heads up on a setting in section E that will need setting for your pot. In section X you can alter your Strike water adjustment factor. This is a neat feature that makes allowances for the latent heat in your equipment. The default setting is supposed to be 2, so if this box is left empty that will be the setting. I think its set at 1, I've asked Pat to confirm this.

If you want to use this feature its going to be hard without some historical data of your strike temps and resulting mash temps so to be safe and if you are unsure set it to 2 and be prepared to apply heat if required.

8.30 and I'm ready to go. Typical Lancashire weather for the end of April, rain! :shock:

This isn't going to "dampen my spirits" as this is the maiden brew in my new brew shed and we've been building up to this for quite some time now.

Good brewing everyone! :thumbs:

I'm still on the settee :lol: waiting for the rain to stop :roll: . I brew outside and if raining I put up a tarp but I got a pop up gazebo last year so might give that a shot.

Bring it on :shoot: :shoot: :shoot:

:lol:

The boil is on... and I've fixed my old laptop during the mash. I can now stay in touch from the shed!

All I need now is tea making facilities and I need never leave! :party:

Fist hop addition in at 80C. Just a quick check (which I should have done earlier). The boil time says 60 mins, not 90. I'll go with 60 unless someone says otherwise in the next half hour or so.

And the sun is still shining!!!

I like the inspirational bottle for your brew day Yeasty!

20 mins to F.O. for me, probably one of the easiest I have done for a while.
I think I will try the 80C hop addition as I have never done that, so will be keen to see what difference it makes (If any).

Again, unless corrected my 15 min hops are going to be whirlpooled in once the temp is down to 80C.

I will the leave alone for 30 mins and then complete the cooling with immersion chiller.

Into last 5 mins of boiling... better make sure I have everything ready.

FFS :argh: :argh: 20 min to go and my brew table has just made a loud bang and when I looked underneath there is a big crack in it.. :o

Just had to improv a running repair and now have it supported with a beer keg and a car jack !! I'll post pics later, at a critical moment at the minute. :lol:

How many bottles of HG did you have stacked on it?!!!!

Mine is cubed now, waiting for tomorrow to pitch probably. :think: (I will be using the St. Austell yeast that I harvested from proper job).

Just to expand on my 80C comment; I didn't first wort hop, the 60 min additions went in at the start of boil. After F.O. I waited for the temp to drop to between 80-85C. I then added the "whirlpool" hops for approx 5-10 minutes.
I always fill my cube via a silicone hose into the hop sock that is supported with wire mesh and a funnel. So the late hops were probably exposed to 80C (ish) wort for around 20 minutes total.

Lots of Styrian aroma, but who knows what will remain after it has "no chilled"?

As you said Yeasty - Should be interesting to see what the differences are.

Great brewday that fellas :thumbs: :clap: :clap: :thumbs: apart from my table it all went great, no rain and even a bit of sunshine.

Got to wait for the Yankee Doodle Dandy APA to finish before I can get this one into the brew fridge, hopefully it will be Tuesday.

Good luck to Yettiman for tomorrow :peace:

Good luck today Yettiman.

Mine has seemed to go as smooth as can be so far.
Just decanted from cube to fermenter and pitched.
HG 270414.jpg
Obligatory hydrometer reading!
Seems to read 1.045 (ish) and the GIB yesterday was 9.9 Brix (1.040 ish)).

Wort is nice and clear here (mid decant), but as in Pats podcast; I am a little greedy too so some trub got in :whistle:
