    So I am trying to build a recipe and the hop ibu calc seems to be going mad. 83IBU for end of boil aroma hops?? 20g for 5 mins similar to 20g for 30mins?

    Not sure if I have done something wrong, but I can't work out why it is so high.

    No extended boil time in settings? If no chill. That 0 min one is ya culprit maybe change from aroma ?

    Got to admit brewing in the Grainfather then no chillin was a pretty easy brew day. My preference is to cool and pitch same day, but on that occasion time constraints, yada yada, which is why i fell for the no chill setting on this recipe ;)

    I am loving them. Averaged about 80%, they are a bit plumper than other malts I usually get, Briess, Wayermann etc so I had to open up the mill a bit as I was getting a lot of flour in the crush and a couple stuck sparges with the grainfather.

    The pilsner I just made (Raro lager) was the first one I have ever made that I consider crisp and refreshing, with the Safale s-189 Swiss lager, very clean and very refreshing, even with no conditioning. 3 weeks from grain to glass. So I would recommend the Gladfield brand.

    Hay there kiwi been looking around online and other forums that Safale s-189 seems to be a lovely yeast its floculation is pretty good too eh? I'm gunna have to give this one a burl what temp did you ferment at? 3 weeks grain to glass with a refreshing tasting lager is pretty good. I see some saying the Safale s-189 beats 34/70 yeast .
