The Grains, Maris Otter, Amber Malt and Torrefied Wheat:
Mash paddle I made at work:
Mashing with my new spoon, no more floppy spoon syndrome:
Looks pretty damn good for pH:
Celeia Hops:
First batch sparge wort, tasting interesting… quite dry but sweet if you know what I mean:
First Batch goes on to warm up with FWH and 1Tsp Gypsum:
Coming to the Boil:
Cold Break:
Nice Clear Wort:
Hit around OG1042 @ 23 Deg C so that will do πŸ™‚

Next malt Experiment will be using Brown Malt.

Less than 24 hours and its fermenting well:

**Bottled 23rd Oct ’09 with 45g sugar

Celeia eh? Not a hop I’m family with.

Also, I now have mild spoon envy…

Celeia is dual purpose hybrid between Savinjski Golding, Aurora and Slovenian wild hops. It has noble and pleasant hoppy notes aroma.

πŸ™‚ I thought they might be worth trying and the price is good too. πŸ™‚

Family with? Arg.

Yeah, sounds like a fair bet – I’ve found Bobek to be reasonable cheap substitutes for Eastern European goldings, and perhaps these are good too.

Will see, I’ll be bottling this soon.
