Who has tried this kit and what kinda method did you use?
I made the kit yesterday using the recommended BE1 plus an extra 500g LDME.
When I took the OG reading (1060!!!) it tastes sweet and malty yet quite bitter which I'm hoping will mellow out a bit during fermentation.
Pitched the yeast that came with the kit at 26oC and after a day the temperature is down to a cool 18oC which is ideal for Ale yeast..
The FV is wrapped in a clean blanket but what should I do if it gets colder as Winter creeps upon us in the UK? I've got a heat belt but it does get really hot to the touch so have avoided using that at all. My other brew is sat on a heat mat which is turned OFF. but when ON the brew goes up to the high 20's, not ideal. If only it was adjustable..
