So yesterday I bottled this beer. Sooooo hope it turns out as well as I am hoping . Those hops smelt amazing when I put them in and when I took them out lol , just wanted to squeeze the bag in there for extra flavor lol. Will give these a few weeks and give it a go.

Don’t know why you want so many bottles??image.thumb.jpg.e6c4d876f13f440be04d5c27db31e0d2.jpg

I remember this pic at the time but I never noticed they were all capped. That's a lot of beer, a lot

Yes, 90% delicious stouts, biab and all over 5years, some 7yrs plus. Some I did in 500ml bottles so just to have one with meal. So I don’t need to do the brewart stouts at this stage. Ha.

Yeah it is just a lot of beer. So you don't fuss about light as they are brown bottles? 

Dark bottles, Coopers and Pickaxe. The shelves are in a corner and the window has security shutters usually 3/4 down so the room is fairly dark during the day. The light in the photo is more from the room light than anything else.

Ahhh cool, so I will keep mine in boxes. Of course, i the 10 months of winter I have, I probably won't need to bother

So this is now at 10 weeks for me . It is amazing, my new daily driver i think . Saying that I still have a few new brews to get through this month lol . Going a mild hop blend ( 15gr cascade and 15gr challenger) has given this a good kick , not over powering with hops 😄

Cascade and challenger work well together and at 10 weeks I suspect they have mellowed out nicely. Seems you’ve got a bit of stock up now?

Not of this beer 😂😂😂. I have the Lion city in the droid now then will change that out for the cricketers before doing a stout coming into winter 😂😂😂 , i like to think even flat out brewing i am doing well to maintain stock levels 🍻 . But yes this beer is a cracker. I have the one bottle of the plastics for the CPA.  Will do a side by side tomorrow to see about carbonation retention and flavor differences. I have also kept making sure the plastic lid was tight .

So, when I did this one, instead of Pride of Ringswood hops, I went 15g Galaxy, 15g Challenger hops. Now, it would be really unfair at six weeks to say this is Coopers Pale, it isn't but it is one of the best Pale Ales I've sampled. I mean, I have always been a fan of this Brewprint, even without hops, it was pretty good drinking, with the Pride hops, it was so very close to Coopers Pale Ale but this...is a very, very nice pale ale.

Would brew this again, exactly the same. Will try and see how this develops...as best as I can given how nice it is. Luckily, I have over 100 bottles at the moment, so I can kind of keep away from the Pale a bit

Oooh galaxy and challenger , thats a mix i could get around . I feel like this will go on the droid when i get back from Perth. I do find the CPA a cracking beer and nicely hopped with the 30gr. Galaxy and challenger sounds good to try next time 😁

So since i came back from my Perth trip i have had no need to add surplus to my stores already , but since my sabbatical is coming to an end i put a CPA on this week and i have just DH it, a little more agressive this time with 30g of Cascade and 30g of challenger as per shems recipe. Keen to see how this will age as it is easily a favourite of mine

Will be interesting in how this turns out, 60g of hops for 10l I think will be the key to either a great ale or an over hopped ale. You have to try and in fairness that amount of hops is not unusual in many recipes.

Well i really really liked 30g of hops that i did last time (15 of each) as i erred on the side of caution. But just thought i would go as per the shem sheet , i do like a punchy hoppy ale though 😆

But if i can do a CPA with 30gr hops being the preferred profile... damn its a cracking beer and a cracking price ( i think the irish red ale is my favourite 17 dollar beer by standard) but this would be the best 20 dollar beer ( adding price for hops 🤣)

Go ahead with it as this is what’s brewing is about, your comments on the result help all.

Be interested inthe review on this one too, really like it with 30gms of hops, was going to go 40 next time but given you have already drunk it at 30 should be interesting to see your thoughts

Will get into these tomorrow, at 12 weeks now, which probably wasn't the preferred time, they drank really well at 6 weeks and then I just kind of got caught with a few other beers all at the same time, which is great as you can just drink a few different beers in the night but it does mean you get to 12 weeks with maybe 9 longnecks left.

Crying shame and all to have this as an issue but it is one I am determined to get through
