Brewing an APA this weekend. Epic Pale Ale base with some different hops thrown in for good measure! Watch the blog for updates
Nice what hops are you adding?? I did a partial mash on the epic, but I had to Add medium Crystal instead of Pale i think it was, and used 2xtins of light LME forthe base.
Bottledand nearly ready, I upposedthe hops at the same intervals, and did 15 days primery, with all the hops then added another 1oz and cold crashed in my cupboard... its amazing what a couple of frozen coke bottles swapped out every 8 hours can do. down to 8 degrees within a day or two, and it cleared very well. will do thato n my last extract too.

Macros, Depends on what you shot for, whats more present the chillit or the chocolate?
The other category would 21A spice/herb/vegetable beer, but that woulde be particularly ok if the chillit is quite prominent?

I got my p[artial mash entered, under american pale ale, it may be a tiny bit sweet, witht he darker crystal used. but there seemed to be a good hop presence from the NZ Cascade.

Lunchie you ever find a HB Club?? I found the CHCH One, recently started some good guys and advice going around.

Going with Cascade bittering, Motueka flavour and aroma and both in as a dry hop addition. Should be good!

Ghetto lagering/cold crash!! I like it. Never thought of doing that myself, good kiwi ingenuity at its best

Havnt been on here for a while, how everyone cracking?

Been a bit busy brewing here lately. Tried my hand at making an Oktoborfest from extract and steeping grain, which is bottle conditioning as we speak.
I am also trying my hand at some small batches as well. around 4.5l so I can experiment with all grain but with limited space. So I have some orange mead and grape fruit honey ale going in the small batches going right now.
I have also tried an Coppertun Ginger beer kit. So that's bust fermenting as we speak.

Will keep you posted if anyone is interested.

@Crusader, yeah thats the freezer side of the hops. All from BrewShop except the two clear bags, they're from Liberty Brewing.

Dealt with The Brew House in Wellington today to get my grains and yeast for Saturday. BRILLIANT customer service!!

Hey Lunchie, Just a heads up: I used Irish moss in my Epic Boil. and Cold Crashed, thats made it clear, if you were looking to make it nice and clear, I'd recommend it .
Picture to be posted soon.

Yeah I did the same with my first Epic Clone and I still got a massive amount of cloud. The difference this time is an immersion chiller, hops, Koppafloc instead of Irish Moss and I've got with US-05 instead of Wyeast....

I'll hopefully get the blog updated on the day so keep an eye out
