Thanks Finnroo,
Ive been looking through the recipe's over the weekend, and came across the Caramel Munich Malts , 1 , 2 , & 3 . It would appear they add a nice malty bready mouth feel / flavour. .
Also on the English Bitter we have been discussing above, would you suggest hops to be added or do you think there is enough in the Coopers Bitter Extract - Can . .

Sorry Tim for the delay. I dont know if you should add any extra hops. I dont really do any extract or partial mash any more. But English Best Bitters are nt really that hoppy. If I was to brew this beer Id just do it as it is and at least that way you have a starting point of reference if you know what I mean. Turn on that kettle and see how you go. Cheers mate.
Gash ,how about reposting that rant. lol cheers

Hi Gash - I made the English Bitter,
as we discussed with Light Crystal, Caramalt, an 200g wheat malt, Finroos suggestion. But forgot the bloody Oats. anyway, looks like it turned out well.
O G. after cooling to 20 C. was 1051 / 52 with new refractometer..
What do suggest the final SG should be before I cold crash . ?

I dont remember which yeast you used, its a normal ale yeast like US05 I'd expect 1.010-1.014 ish
if its an english style like S04 or ESB yeast
It could possibly finisher higher even up to 1.018 but if you nurse these yeasts they will finish lower. Its hard to suggest a time, because these yeasts can ferment fast, but they can stall just as fast.. A pro brewer recently told me once they get to about 1.025 dont let it cool at all if possible ramp it up. Normally for other yeasts I do this once under 1.020 and I can do it visually normally and have time, but these english yeasts can take off and ferment in a few days.. So its hard to give you a time..

Thanks Gash,
I used US05 1 pack and the OG was 1.051
Checked yesterday and its 1.024 so ive stored the fermenter in a room of 24 deg , to liven it up, se what it read in 2 days.

Thanks again Gash.
