10 mins?! thats pretty good, how big are your boils?
my two-ring, isn't great, thinking about a 3 ring, probably worth it ...

I don't have the equipment for all grain, but I will be sending one i think, extract wiuth grains, depends how my current one turns out, seems to be looking at a much morestable temperature, which helps

They give you feedback on all entered beers, so it will be helpful for perfecting that brew, instead of chasing the dream, lol.

Fair point, but there's no harm in trying something they advise, and if you don't like it as much its not a biggie, in the end you made beer. I'm experimenting, with Biscuit malt to see what happens to an already made recipe. lol.

let us know if you do enter...

You can also brew NZ Craft Beer TV's Mash Up if you wanted:
http://nzcraftbeer.tv/mash-up-20-litre-recipe/

Thought about both, never got round to it though

Anyone Tried the Mash Up?

Hey Lunchie... I'm doing an Extract with Grains Version of Epic, and making it slightly darker, giving it a slightly sweeter taste with Med Crystal(80Lish?) in place of Pale Crystal.

where do I find the yeast??

Yep I love the stuff, if you're lucky you can find different versions of it, taste slightly different since they're brewed in different areas. Think Pale Ale but darker and MORE hops!

I got the Cali Yeast from Brewshop, but anywhere that sells liquid yeast should be able to help. Failing that US-05 will work as well.

Also, while writing my blog last night threw a recipe for a Pohutakawa Cerveza, take a look and see what you think, link in my sig.
