It is great to see that you agree with yourself (lol)ūüėā

It was very bloody nice.

I saw Brewshop guy on friday nad asked why he didn't have FWKs and he got all defensive and said "I can order them in" so I ordered a session and a pale to see how they turn out

Picked up the Session ( Azacca and El Dorado hops and dry hop) and a Pale (Vic Secret and Galaxy) dry hop with Galaxy.

Interesting to see what the Session hops turn out, haven't tried either and it just kind of gives me the chance to grab 50gms of each to try and then use on another beer before buying more

@Rob Courtney, Are they the All Inn Brewing FWK's ? They always turn out well. Got there Mercenary American Pale Ale brewing, at the moment. The local brewery at Dungog just started doing some as well.

Yep both of them are. I have only done the Japanese Lager and whilst that was very nice, I was interested to try it against something I do brew. Very tempted to split the galaxy into a 60/40 Galaxy Citra ratio though

Australian Pale Ale divvied up between the two droids, it is strange to think that there is a lazier way to brew. This one states not to dry hop more than 3 days (Galaxy 25gms per droid dry hop... original wort hops are Vic Secrets and Galaxy...maybe I could put more Galaxy in...) so it may be a case of either buying an extra box of bottles or letting the second brew rest in storage until some bottles come free and then dry hop it for 3 days at 18 degrees)

More bottles, you know that Rob.

Just pushed past 2 weeks so I thought I'd at least give one a go to see where it is at, Beared Dragon Pale Ale.

I liked the lager one I did but would never brew that again over the pilsner/lagers I can brew here but this Pale Ale is very nice for two weeks, like very nice. I am currently drinking a GDOSA with 25/15 mix of Amarillo and Citra at 4 weeks and the wort sits comfortably with that one.

Would brew this one again

5 and a half weeks in...and here is the quandry I have, the brewprint of the pale ale is very nice, as a base, it is open to lots of hops choices.

This fresh wort is bloody nice though, you could go a big, big session on it. I guess if using the brewprint I'd give Vic Secrets and Galaxy hops a go
