Hemp Bitter is going to be a Goldings based bitter with 200g of ground hemp seed in the last 15mins of the boil
Couple of pictures from today’s prep for tomorrows double Brewday and the Recipes, I’m probably not going to do much in the way of water treatment though might add an odd Tsp of Gypsum here and there

I seemed to boil the crap out of it, and had to liquor back 1.3L:

Hemp seed causes practically NO foaming when running off! Goodbye head retention:

Lots of pictures!! I got tempted by a big bag of Bobek in the freezer so added 1 small handfull every 5 mins in the last 20 mins of the boil (Might do an all Bobek IPA in the ‘Dogfish head 60 minute IPA’ style doing 2 good handfull every 5 minutes)
I also bottled last weekends Bramling XB around the end of boil/ cooling/running off.

*Bottled 3rd May ’10 Hemp with 40g Sugar & CNC with 30g Sugar/ 40g DSM

Both brews tasting pretty good, CNC especially lots better body than expected & Loads of Hemp Flavour in the Hemp Bitter.
