    Id like to throw a lager yeast at it but haven't got any cultured up ATM. The sugar is to up the fermentables but the Munich and Vienna should give plenty of malt character. Cheers I'll go light the kettle :D.

    @jeffpn .You just gave me a lightbulb moment tho jeffpn I could spin some 34/70 up and ferment this at 18c ale temp therefore yeast population won't need to be as high at pitching time. Whatdaya think good or bad idea?o_O

    I'm sure it'd work. I use 34/70 for most of my lagers. Ferm temp 12.8°C, dry pitched.

    Well she's all mashed in hit the 65c smack bang on the mark doing a full no sparge brew today just lift the grain bag and let her drain. This way cut down on things to do:D. I'm gunna go with the coopers ale yeast I've worked hard culturing them up from the bottles so might as well let them yeasties loose in this throw together recipe plus it will be more to the ordinary bitter style

    Another change from raw sugar to brown sugar might as well get some minute flavour contributions from this will add at start of boil for extra melanoidin flavours it's going to be Amber anyhow so might as well add to the complexity.

    With brown sugar you may get a little iron tang ( like blood ) Good mix of hops so call it 1776 ale

    Not a crazy krausen 2 inches. But it fermented clean and attenuated well 80% which is what ive got this brew set at. It went bonkers at the start ten really slowed the last 4 points finnishing at 1.010 maybe pitch rate issue? But thats what my fg was set at. As for this brew its set at 1.006 we will see if it gets down that far but im expecting 1.008 ish

    Look at the wort color so far it nay turn into a brown ale yet

    Same starter ? every generation fights harder than the one before , tricky yeast to live with after a few batches and takes a bit of jedi love to get the best of , my house strain now is a bloody monster !

    Well will see how good it is I'm going to spin some up overnight and pitch in morning fingers crossed there will be enough yeasties there;)

    1.030 so far pre boil should be around 1.040 post boil.
