Not so many pics today, ended up with 1.5 litres more than my target volume 🙂

*13th Feb ’14 – Dry Hopped with 100g Magnum T90 pellets as it was close to final gravity.

*Bottled 24th Feb ’14 – with 122g white sugar, tastes pretty bland with some light grassiness from the dry hop 🙂

*14th Mar ’14 – This is actually not bad, crisp carbonation and smooth bitterness, very easy drinking.

The gorgeous smelling 80c steep hops, apparently the house was smelling extra Hoppy today:

Break material clumping as the Wort cools, the wort was tasty and already displaying a good bitterness:

Bit of a lazy start to the day then for some reason the hop-stopper decided to block and required some ‘Spatulation’ with the plastic paddle.
Yeast Pitched, in the fridge at 20c. I’ll be dry hopping this with the same combo of hops after fermentation.

*18th Nov ’11 – Dry hopped with 10g Simcoe, 20g Motueka, 20g NZ Cascade

*20th Nov ’11 – Dry hopped with 10g Motueka, 10g NZ Cascade

*Bottled 27th Nov ’11 – with 71g of sugar, I’m drinking the last pint out of the bottling bucket as it tastes too good to throw away. Tastes smooth 🙂
Think it could have stood to be a bit more black, it might be a Trashy Brown!

*25th Jan ’12 Hopzine review of Trashy Black, thanks Rob much appreciated

C.C.A.N – Todays little hop-bomb. This actually started out as being an all Chinook idea as I’ve not done a single hop Chinook yet. I think this will be better though bittering comes from 2 additions of Chinook then a big Aroma Steep of Chinook, Citra, Amarillo & Nelson Sauvin.
This is also my National Homebrew Day (a day late ‘cos I had to work n stuff)

Citra – 13.8 % @ 0 mins – 34g (80c Steep 30mins)
Amarillo – 9.5 % @ 0 mins – 30g (80c Steep 30mins)
Nelson Sauvin – 11.7 % @ 0 mins – 34g (80c Steep 30mins)

Dry Hops:
Motueka: 28g (pellets, what I had left)
Amarillo: 30g
Chinook: 18g (what was left in the packet)

Suppose to be 1051, near enough eh:

Bit of a cock up, I was recycling my cooling water back to my HLT, watching a mark on my sight glass rather than the water level, showered water all over and wet a socket (eek!) Hopefully no damage done. Other than that a fairly lazy brewday, rehydrated my yeast for the first time in ages (reminded or guilted into it by others on Twitter, I should be nice to my yeast more often rather than the usual Dry Sprinkle on the wort).

*13th May ’11 Dry Hopped with 116g of Hops ;)

*Bottled 21st May ’11 with 75g White Sugar primings, I filled 20x 500ml bottles and 1x 330ml, there must have been a good litre or so soaked into the Dry hops.

*Taster 28th May ’11 – Mmmmm Dry Hopped lovliness. Tasting this good this early probably means that in a couple of weeks it will be amazing 🙂

*Reviewed 20th Aug ’11 at www.davelozman.co.uk/beer/ag-54/ Dave had the oldest and very last bottle of this Hoppy brew, many thanks for the kind review.

This is an attempt at Brewdog’s Trashy Blonde and the recipe started life as Sara Carter’s (Scarer) www.brewdog.com/trashy_blonde
This will be my first experience of Pellet hops with the Motueka, I’m going to ferment it with Safale us-05 and Mashing at 68c (though I aimed for 69c, even after a pre-heat, empty and refill of the Mash tun I still lost almost 5c from 83c in the HLT), Mash for a minimum of 60mins.
I may dry hop this with 13g of Ahtanum in the fermenter… to be decided.

Running to fermenter, the clearest wort I’ve made for a long while, the break material just dropped like a stone:

Looks like about 1040, Refractometer said 11.75 Brix which is about 1045 bit high but I’m not going to worry about it:
