APA with lots of late addition galaxy, very good drop if I may say so myself. Brewed a couple slabs for Xmas and decided to keep a few beers for myself.

Dez's raspberry IPA.

Ken tasty! The fruit works so well in this beer. Great hop flavour/aroma with enough body to balance it nicely. Dangerously easy to drink.

Thanks Mark.
Glad you enjoyed it. I'm definitely brewing this again it's been going down so well the keg wont last long.
Also fancies pellicles.

Certainly.  I take no credit for this recipe. I found it on YouTube.  Sounded too good no to try. I don't have my notes but here is the original recipe, I tweaked mine as all brewers do.

Citra & Raspberry IPA Smoothie
74% 4.5kg Maris Otter (I used 5kg)
4% 250g Crystal 60      (I used 300g of random crystal from sabsosa)
4% 250g Carapils          (again I bumped to 300g)
10%  600g Rolled Oats  (I used one 750g bag of oats from woolies)
500g Lactose  @5          (I stuck with that)

20g Apollo @ 45            (I went  25g Warrior @ 60 from memory,  I'll need my notes for iBU's 60+?)
30g Citra @ 15
70g Citra @ 0
200g Citra Dry hop for 3 days at end of fermentation.

Recipe calls for 2.1kg Raspberries at day 4.
I chucked 2kg in on day 2 due to work.

Starting gravity on mine was 1064 and finished at 1022. Not including the raspberries in the og, so 7+%.
I used 1056.
Next batch will be a double and split it. One with 1056 and one with Brett. I'm really keen to try Brett on this.
Also fancies pellicles.

Bo Pils. Magnificent! Been itching to tap this keg but the Columbus Mild turned into the never ending keg.

Brewed on the 25th of November. No idea when I kegged it but it spent 2 weeks at 0C prior to kegging and has been in the keg fridge at 4C since then.

Yep, that will do it. Long lagering times makes a massive difference.

I'm drinking a 3 1/2 weeker right now because it's all I got and it's not so good but potentially great. Got another two kegs of it to sit and condition properly though.

My IIPA vs Pirate Life IIPA
Mine left PL Right
There’s much more aroma, little more body more alcoholic and more bitter
Mine a little more tropical and much easier to drink
8.8% for PL mine around 8.4%

And the LAST Magill beer

Lost in a box. Imperial siason - circa late 2015

Strong, alcoholic oxidation characters but saison still evident

Sort of sad that all my Magill beers are done. But I it has to happens

Chang clone. For those who don't know Chang is a Thailand beer that is pretty tasteless and typical of Asian light lager styles.

Why did I brew it? just to prove i can I guess and for no other reason.  Crystal clear beer, big, long lasting foam head, almost no hops or malt, light body, no faults, tastes ultra-clean.

Should have mentioned, just come back from Thailand - Ahh, the inspiration. What's going to inspire me next, Russia, Dr. Smurto & Raven although no bugs allowed in my home brewery.

Stick with rice then. Barley has lacto all over it.
Is what I was gonna say. But it turns out rice is lacto laden also.
You want no bugs in your brew house? Your dreaming.
Also fancies pellicles.

Hey Bizenya, would you care to share your recipe? I've been thinking about trying to do something similar to Pirate Life IIPA, when I get time...
