Californian Steam

Don't need a question to start a thread here. The weather is hot, it would be nice to know when the next brew is coming.

Thanks to Keat and some tips using recipe, I plan to put this together today. A bit short of specialty malts so a bit of improvisation was required. Plan to brew at 16 deg c!

Looks complicated. This is what experts does. People like me, we just use some malt extract and call it a day.

This one went down as planned, pH of mash 5..4... pitched at 21 deg C, a bit warmer than would have preferred but was nontheless the same temp as my yeast starter, but will brew this one as close to 16 deg C as my equipment can manage.

Decided to leave off the 30 g chocolate (pure colour additive as far as I can see).

Back on AG. You finally got a decent burner for boiling?

Burner, yes got one of those flame throwers Keat and Spud have. Remarkable piece of kit and cuts my heat up time to boil in half.

Next job: spigots in s/s boil pots and mash tuns... drilling the hole in stainless stell will be fun am sure. :roll:

Homefix should have them. What size do you need? I might just have the drill bit. ;)

Just a suggestion when your getting the spigot, get all s/s including the brab.

Another trick to quicken the boil time - start the burner up while you're sparging, but at a lower heat so that you don't scorch the concentrated wort, should shave off another 10-15mins. For me, I'll typically start half-heat when I'm done with the first runnings, so by the time I've finished with the 2nd runnings, wort temp is up to the 80s.

beer a bit too sweet to discern so early Keat, but no off flavours there yet, just a bit of huskyness as I always get with current process (but hopefully not much longer :wink: ).
