7 hours is not a 'nap'.

No, it's a really fucking good nap.
Drinking double IPA's , big week and early starts all combined to me dropping the ball .
At least it wasn't nodding off at a club meeting again

Gents,
I had a brew night a few weeks back... one of which was a dsga... i have a sneaky feeling i got drunk and missed the last addition of amarillo haha... it was 2am afterall...

How much should i dry hop to counteract?
I normally omit the 5min addition on DSGA in favour of a 1.5gm/L dry hop.

Pirate - no day 3 sugar additions. Fermentables were 16kg grain and 2.5kg LDME 🤘

I don't know that I'd be making a Kolsch style beer from the Coopers Ale malt grain. The Coopers Ale malt grain is reportedly & most likely the "Commander" or possibly "Compass" grain. Both are medium attenuators by design to be less fermentable to leave more body, & a more noticeable malt presence in the final beer. Very much suited to craft beers.

A Kolsch I would be looking for a cleaner more highly fermentable grain such as a typical Pilsner grain combined with something like Vienna malt as a base.

Cheers,

Lusty.


There were reports that Cooper’s were intending to use “Schooner” in their maltings.

Did this not occur?
Coopers are doing 3 styles of malt as far as I'm can find. Ale, Pale and Schooner. You will see them listed on the ellerslie website.

Looks good Nige!
You've got one on me. Decided to take January off from brewing, keen AF to get stuck back in though.
Also fancies pellicles.

I know it's not exactly and English style malt, but might just do an English summer ale smash. Summer Lightning style with EKG and London ESB.

Yep. 80% first wort hopping and 20% whirlpool. Use a low co-humolone hop or a noble. Don't go overboard on bittering levels, bets kept below 30IBU's

On the 'no plan' plan I impulsively got in on the gigayeast order and having never made a sour or brett beer before now have:

Scourmont Abbey Ale GY014
Sweet Flemish Brett GB144
Sour Plum Belgian GB123 

With the Abbey Ale yeast, I want to brew a Dubbel or Belgian dark strong and have that ready to enter SABSOSA and hopefully improve on last years results with what I've learnt over the last year.   That ones easy enough.


For the Brett, I was thinking of using the Abbey Ale yeast to make some kind of ale (which would then be using that yeast for the Dubbel/BDS).  Then pitch the Brett into that secondary & put that away in the shed for a long time. 

With the sour plum, thinking of doing a saison, and then sticking that away in the shed too, and then maybe add some oak & bottle dregs of something to that at a later date depending how its going.

I was planning to ferment the saison and belgian/brett ale at the same fairly warm temperature together.   Although this might not be good idea for brett beer?
I read that Brett eats the fruity esters and the resulting taste/aroma can come out smoky, which is not so nice and with the belgian yeasts it could be over the top.  Maybe it's not a good idea to ferment too warm?


Saison:
75% pils
20% wheat
5% vienna
3-5 IBU's
GB123  yeast


Belgian ale:
75% dark pils
20% wheat
5% munich 2
maybe a little aromatic
3-5 IBUs
Brett in 2ndary

Rye golden ale with Gigayeast Vermont IPA. Yet to decide on the hops.
