I have this one in my current order along with the Jolly Roger (Pirate Life 😁) Pale Ale.

Look forward to hearing how it turns out.

The Jolly Roger is my next one in, have to try all these😛😍🤪

It took 2 days 1hr for the droid to detect fermentation (suspect started a bit earlier) however I’m noting this length of time correlates with the age of the yeast. This brew’s Y1 yeast purchased late 2019 is dated 2017. No major issue but yeast dates support different EOF times for the same brew.

Thanks for that.

I will check the dates on all my yeasts now and ensure I use them in reverse chronological order.

That’s the go. Have put down the Jolly Roger and done a post for it.

Kegged The G-O-A-T Amber Ale today after 12 days fermentation. As mentioned yeast of 2017 took 2 days to register fermentation. BrewPint details state should be finished by 10 days. Not worried.

@Barrelboy I put this one on today. Checked the yeast date beforehand as per your advice (all of mine are the same). 

It will be interesting to see how long fermentation takes.

Did you get much venting on this one? I've affixed an A4 plastic pocket just in case.

A review that I’ve put in, it’s so nice and Rob, try this away from lagers 😁👍👌🤗😂

A Goat to be Had

Near on 6 weeks in the keg and just an exceptional ale. This brew is bitter sweet, great crisp finish with a strong sweet bitter aftertaste, so nice. The Galaxy hops work a treat, citrus passion fruit to the palate. Boy another BrewPrint ripper.”

So do you think when I do the amber ale for my mate I should just do this one instead?

 

Then I could have a few samplers

Hi. Do you recall how long fermentation took? Mine took 12days with 2017 yeast. Put this brew down just a moment ago with 2019 yea#t therefore expect about 9 to 10days?

It was 6 days for fermentation, 2 for dry hopping and 2 day cold crash - 10 days in total.

Just checked my shelf and the first keg should be ready to to drink in 2 weeks.

Y1 is the US-05 yeast, so I’d go with that.

Wow!   I bought this kit and the Wicked Night.  Going to get it going tomorrow.  You made my night when I caught your review.

What temperature did you do your aging for 6 weeks?

 

thanks

Ambient temperature of the room for 5 weeks ranging probably around 18C, 1 week in the fridge before using at 3/4C.

Used to work in Perth but my Celsius has escaped  me (since home is US)  but did the conversation...65 F is the temp in my basement so perfect.   Appreciate it.

I think you’ll really enjoy this one. If not make one of your G-O-A-T curries.

Yes it better be, you've been talking a lot of smack about this brew...

 

I am giving away quite a few longnecks of this to my friend who had a baby a few months ago. Whilst this might sound a nice thing to do, it was her who came to me and said "Harvey Norman have marked down their display models of Brewart to...you should get them" and it was her who said when we went to a training course in Adelaide last year and we had 3 hours to our flight back "lets go to Lady Burra and get smashed"...so I owe her a few beers...even if we almost missed the flight home, given we got smashed.

In saying that though, I'll keep at least a six pack to sample
