I got 27/50 for my Partial Mash Pale Ale, they said fresher hops would have won me a medal... nevermind theres always next year.

So Anyways, I'll be doing another Partial Mash on Monday, given the hot temperatures recently, its time for a Saison, 26deg c fermentation temp starting . using Wyeast 3711, which is a beast.

recipe is as follows;
Mash 30 Mins at 67 deg c: 0.5kg Wheat Malt
0.5kg Rye Malt
0.5kg Caramalt
0.25kg Vienna
2.5kg Light DME
10g Nelson Sauvin @ 60
10g Nelson @10
15g @ 5
15g @ 1
Dryhop 20g for 1 week, i enjoy the taste of sauvin dryhopping the saison, gives more citrus flavour

Last one before Christmas/New Year, and pretty much most of January..... bloody EQC, I'll be remaking my 27/50 partial mash with a much much bigger hop bill and maybe add a little extra malt to make it an American IPA. and probably leaving it in my unpowered garage for the 3 weeks they are fixing our wall/ceilings.

I got this down Last night ,and its bubbling away at 25 right now. I will ramp up further tomorrow to 26, then again to 27 a couple of days later, I'll end up about 28-29 degrees, get some real esters in there for the 3711. mash the grains at 69 for 25 mins, moved the 1 min addition to FO. I'll be dumping a new beer after christmas onto the same cake, thinking a red/brown saison again. then it'll be time to build my brew shed. I'm getting a new chest freezers for the new round of beef we are getting from my folks farm. So I'll be able to use the upright freezer I currently have to ferment in, with a temp controller.

Oh and don't forget the Christmas presents of a Keg kit...

Exciting times ahead, although I'm still not allowed any hops plants... lol.

Jealous!!!

Yeah I wouldn't worry about hop plants chief, they take over everything.
Mine seem to be doing ok, but I think I'll move em round the front of the house next year, they'll get way more sun and get them into bigger pots!

I'm pretty excited, it'll be good to ease the pain of bottling allllll of my beer.
Orange Ale bottled too, so it'll be interesting to see how that turns out.

Partial Mash Saison sitting at 27 Deg C, and will go off the heat on 27th, so my house doesn't burn down, and the Dry hops added.

Well that was Xmas 2012!
The Orange Cascade Pale Ale and the Stout where a hit.
The Black Rock Cider kit has dried out ALOT in the bottle. Tastes more like a apple wine than anything. I think next time (if it happens) I will make it with apple juice not water. Hopefully gives it more body and flavour.

Anyone get any cool surprises from Santa???

Merry christmas Guys!!

And with the New year out of the way, and a mix pack of homebrew demolished at golden bay... its onto bigger and better.

Pack up time has begun for EQC repairs and then the Brewshed Build weill begin!

exciting times

I have been drinking my Fruit beers... they're a bit meh! but my Gunslingers Graf and the orange Cascade Pale ale are a hit. The graf needs another month to really start to shine.

the ornage Pale Ale, I can't really taste mush in the way of the Orange of coriander, althouigh i did drop the amount of the adjuncts.

Pictures to follow.
