    So you like this better the Bairds crystal ?Did you use this in a hobgoblin recipe, or a
    fullers ?So far I've only used it a bjcp 70/- and a mild that is >20% crystal. Both have "the
    taste". I don't k...

    Simpson's 70-80L dark crystal. That is the answer. This is the missing "british" taste in
    Hobgoblin and Fuller's (especially the London Porter). We just got it at the local stores a
    couple months ago ...

    That explains why his blog has not been updated. I didn't read this whole thread, but has
    anyone mentioned that S-04 is just gross? I know it's preference, but I haven't liked any beers
    I have done wi...

    I had previously stopped using s-04 as all my beers brewed with it had a distinct yeasty-tang
    that as you said, got stronger as it aged. I even entered one of the beers into a comp (it was

    We drank the cask at canadian thanksgiving dinner yesterday and did a side by side with a store
    bought. The usual issues: too light in body and alcohol, too hoppy. The colour was almost
    perfect, the w...

    I also used a different sparging technique which resulted in a lot more hot side aeration (HSA
    than normal), basically the entire wort was dripped into the pot rather than tubed. HSA isn't a
    thing. Th...

  • Posted in thread: Vancouver, BC HBTers! Water treatment? on 10-05-2016 at 02:01 AM
    Yeah, I still do basic Gordon Strong RO treatment (1tsp CaCl for Malty, 1tsp CaSO4 for Hoppy,
    etc) but I forgot about it the last batch and there was no noticeable difference. Don't worry
    about it too...

    Thanks, that stuff sounds pretty good but I'm brewing on the weekend so it will be ready for
    Halloween and won't get to a homebrew store or have time to order anything. I have all the
    other ingredient...
