Hi all. I had some correspondence with the brewer back in 2011. In addition I suggest nuggets
for bittering and the dry english strain. I can post a suggested recipe if there's
interest:Thanks for the...

Can anyone post a picture of their wiring for this controller? The MH1210a.
Posted in thread: US-05 (dry) vs WY1056 (liquid) - My tests/results on 06-12-2013 at 02:11 PM
Great experiment. For my tastes there's no comparison, I'll use WLP001 or 1056 every time. I
find the liquid versions 'cleaner', and that I can taste the underlying malt and hop
components.I like to d...

Interesting to hear that Bairds malt as I visit Haddington a lot (family) and always take a
wander by the maltster. Generally you can't select by maltster in most of our HBSs and you just

Nice idea with the marbles. Whenever I dry hop the hops just float on top and the aroma isn't
as pungent as it should be.
Posted in thread: Suggestions for first AG with only Fuggles hops? on 03-01-2010 at 09:09 PM
Fuggles are a very mild hop, I would bump up the last two additions to at least an ounce and a
half, and move the 40 minute addition to 10 minutes.

Sierra Nevada Pale Ale, it was on special at a corner shop where my girlfriend lived about 5
years ago. I remember how odd it tasted but I kept going back for more. Still one of my

I thought it was a collection of good scenes that kind of simmer slowly and climax (like the
French scene mentioned), but the film didn't really cohere for me, overall I thought it was a
