Finally figured out my over carbing issues. Yeast has fermented in the bottle. And is due to high heat in my garage. This may be a yeast health issue as well.
Time to be more careful

Brewed an Epic on Friday night, 1.05 OG.
My ferment sample (with help from the warm coffee machine) finished at 1.01 today.

Nice, I'm thinking about try Brett soon. I just bottled my first black iipa, 150g each of Motueka, kohatu, Waimea and Wakatu and it's tasting like my most bitter beer ever!
My super stout is struggling, not getting any action at 15-16%

What grain mill are you thinking of getting ?

Black IIPA with NZ Hops, Sounds like a tasty brew. Mine was just a standard IPa, using 100% Mosaic, tasting good so far.

This is the Mill I'm currently planning on:

15-16% is ok though right? what were you aiming for? Looking forward to trying your beers as well too, I've got plenty of citra, in the freezer, and I've always wondered about making a saison with them.

Looks like a good mill.
I was aiming for another 20%+ brew. Right now it's like sweet marmite, I'm probably going to have to pitch more yeast.
This black NZ iipa is only my 2nd NZ hop combo IPA so I'm hoping the combination works, my first one was like fruit salad, hence why I did most from then on with USA hops. Mosaic should be pretty tasty

Yeah reasonably priced too. Mosaic certainly shows some promise.

Having a bit of a slow down here. Got a Schwarzbier doing a diacetyl rest which will tie up the fermenting fridge for a little while. My first lager. Looking and tasting pretty good so far.
