I'd say you could make a dark mild or English bitter. 500g of DME will net you about 1.045 OG so maybe a bit too much for a mild but that's what I'd brew.

500g DME
50-80g Dark Crystal (depending...

I bake at home so I consider myself a master baker. I also like to argue at home so my wife calls me a master debater.

Just in case anyone's interested in this yeast. Just bottled a basic pale ale using M44. OG 1.055 down to 1.011 in two weeks. Hydro sample tasted nice and clean, actually quite a dry bite to it....

Should be alright. I had back issues last week so had to let a pale ale dry hop for 12 days instead of the planned 7 before I could bottle. Hydrometer sample tasted great with no hint of a grassy...

Think I read somewhere that squeezing the bag opens the holes in the material a bit more letting out more trubby stuff, which sort of makes sense. I'm brewing tomorrow and am going to try filtering...

I think the Coopers yeast has a bit of an undeserved bad rep. As long as you ferment it coolish (20C or under) it is pretty clean. As Kiwis you should be able to get hold of Mauribrews dry ale yeast...

Mid-Atlantic SMaTH (yes, SMaTH)

I won't have much time for BIAB brewing this summer so had planned to do four or five single hop extract batches using hops I haven't used before (Citra, Simcoe, Palisade, maybe a New Zealand hop)....

When is overpitching actually overpitching?

I have recently started using liquid yeast. I brew small batches (5 litres) so do not need to use a starter but do so that I can harvest yeast for future brews. I normally make a 1 litre starter and...
