Brewing an APA this weekend. Epic Pale Ale base with some different hops thrown in for good measure! Watch the blog for updates
Nice what hops are you adding?? I did a partial mash on the epic, but I had to Add medium Crystal instead of Pale i think it was, and used 2xtins of light LME forthe base.
Bottledand nearly ready, I upposedthe hops at the same intervals, and did 15 days primery, with all the hops then added another 1oz and cold crashed in my cupboard... its amazing what a couple of frozen coke bottles swapped out every 8 hours can do. down to 8 degrees within a day or two, and it cleared very well. will do thato n my last extract too.
Macros, Depends on what you shot for, whats more present the chillit or the chocolate?
The other category would 21A spice/herb/vegetable beer, but that woulde be particularly ok if the chillit is quite prominent?
I got my p[artial mash entered, under american pale ale, it may be a tiny bit sweet, witht he darker crystal used. but there seemed to be a good hop presence from the NZ Cascade.
Lunchie you ever find a HB Club?? I found the CHCH One, recently started some good guys and advice going around.
