Brewed up a Vienna/Simcoe smash tonight. Mashed for two hours (somehow I thought I could pick up kids and make/eat dinner within 60 minutes).

Ha! thats a big ask for anyone!

On a separate note I'm doing a smoked porter, for the Twisted Hop Local Competition in the next month.
1kg maris otter
1kg smoked malt (not peated)
0.5kg brown malt
0.2kg med crystal
0.15 pale choc
0.15 torrified wheat
50g black patent
trying the malts from craftbrewing.co.nz this time, see if theres an difference.
apart from smoked, which i got from brewshop.co.nz
columbus for bittering and willamette @ 30 and FO
43IBU, aiming for 70% efficiency 1.056ish.
only an 11 litre batch
1028 for yeast i think?!

Got 1.058, was expecting 1.052.
To make up for it I brewed a light blonde this afternoon: 1.026

Just started the boil on my Smoke-screen Porter, so farso good, although a small mishap spilling some grain into the water, without bag, filtered it through the bag again, following lunchies BIAB advice, to use a small sparging step, to increase efficiency.

Last night was a case swap with the local christchurch guys, some good beers were drunk which was good.

Came out really good like 75% for BIAB. I struggle to get that with standard mashing.

Only mishap I had was my 1028 wyeast was infected so had to use s-04, which I didn't wanna do. Nevermind

Brewed a flanders red yesterday. Went pretty smoothly. Sucks that the feedback loop on these beers is 6 months - 2 years. So, wont know if i screwed up for ages

Fermenting it in a plastic bucket for a few months. Hoping to get a fairly sour flanders red. I didnt pitch any additional yeast with the rosealare. It was cracking by this morning though.

Oh and I used craftbrewing.co.nz. Man their crush is pretty damn good! I had brewshop Marias otter left over from another brew see the difference in crush. Definitely use them again for malts and hops. All the hard to get stuff from brewshop

Bottled my Simcoe/Vienna smash last night. Think this will be pretty good.
Also bottled my light centennial blonde, dry hopped with a little Simcoe. 3.1%, bit higher than I wanted.

Fermenters are now all empty so I might get going with the craftbrewing Epic clone.
