Similar to the last one, but black, Lunchie, I think you might be interested?
If I'm able to I'll chuck one in, it's unlikely at this stage though.
Yeah not sure I can get in a double brew.
I'm planning an oatmeal stout, with a twist and I'm not 100% the funds can stretch that far. If they can, i'll be chucking one in for sure!!

On a side not, tried your Graff tonight bro. All I can say is WOW!!! I love the taste. Reminds me of a sour stout. Absolutely brilliant, the smell works, the taste works and WOW the aftertaste is BRILLIANT. Very god! Might brew something similar myself sometime soon!

Yeah. Cheers Dude. Took a bottle to the Chch meet tonight and they said pretty much the same. It just needed some time. Gonna save 2 bottles for the NHC I reckon and see what they say. Just for **** s and giggles. This fresh is ok. Completely different to anything out there.
I'd like to do a black IPA. But kinda figure ill still be out of action. Plus my focus when I get back to brewing will be NHC 2013. Gonna get me a win this year. You never know it might even be the Graf lol.

Another swap soon man once I'm back up and running? You keen? Maybe a couple of brews?

Random drunken thought. I've had beers stop/stick at a certain gravity. Theory would be its finished fermenting and there's no more sugar left. This may sound stupid and take it with a grain of salt but if you added the super beer yeast after 3-4 days. Maybe it won't stick a little like the green flash le freak clone floating around. Two yeast in suspension at the same time. I don't know just a thought.

For sure man. Once I can get some more brewing done, I'm keen as to get a regular swap going. Was thinking I'll ditch the stout and brew a BIPA instead, may as well get in the competition!

Nail down your mot and cascade pale ale and you'll be ok there. Wouldn't mind a taste if u can. Although the category is a hard one to do well in.

Now to put that in the schedule. I'm planning an Oatmeal Stout, Belgian Tripel and a NZ Pilsner. APA will have to be after that and no doubt in the summer.

I checked my superbeer today and it's dropped to around 1.06 so it's obviously fermenting, just slowly, 1.06 puts it about 19% so I'm hoping it keeps going
