    I know it's probably a bit late but I've now made 4x lagers with this strain and it's great. It
    definitely accentuates hop flavour and bitterness, so probably not the best strain for a malty
    beer, but...

    Hmm, well the melanoiden really does bring quite a lot to the beer. The carapils isn't
    particularly important from a flavour perspective, but I'm kinda going back to it these days to
    try and get my be...

    i going to give this recipe a try this weekend.Great news, how did you get along? I posted this
    recipe years ago, but it's still probably the best lager I've ever made.If I brewed it again,
    I'd lose t...

    I live about 5 miles from Bairds maltings, but they don't sell in smaller quantities than a few
    tons / a lorry load at a time. My online LHBS stocks all Fawcetts malts though so I really have
    no excus...

    Sorry to dig up an old thread, but did you ensure your mash pH was correct? If it gets too
    high, you extract tannins from the grain which can cause a haze (ask me how I know). This can
    happen really e...

    Bosium, when you say "oxygen barrier containers", what are you talking about? Mylar bags or
    something else?I actually use clip-lock food containers - kinda like tupperware but with
    locking lids with g...

    I've kept crushed malts refrigerated in oxygen-barrier containers for a year and they still
    tasted good enough to brew with, but I think 6 months is probably the longest I'd want to keep
    crushed malts...

    I got this on yesterday as a small test batch - I had to go without the aromatic, as what I
    thought was aromatic was actually cara-aroma.Fermenting now at 19C (66F), will allow it to
    step up a few d...
