Hey Goff,

Its an absolute cracker I am very happy with it, I was a bit worried about the upfront bitterness I was getting when its just poured at 3C but as it warms up the hops really come out and as it has aged in the bottle its just getting better.
If I was going to change one thing I would either use only 30 grams in the 15 min addition eg 10g Centennial, 10g Citra, 10g Mosaic and then just add those extra hops to the 5 min addition making it 5min addition 30g Centennial, 30g Citra, 30g Mosaic.or just drop the 15 min addition all together and add it 1 min or Flame Out.
Give it a crack and let us know how it turns out.
Cheers
Rob

Bottled my Scottish ale and all went very well, washed 2 jars of yeast and that looks good too. Brew day tomorrow just preparing the liquor now. Was a bit worried about doing the yeast thing again but decided to get back on the pony and move forward. :D

Hi Paul, Ive posted a new post topic about Mauribrew yeast but seems to be Lager, Wheat and Engish style. :D

Finnroo's Avatar Finnroo - Mon 6 Nov - 11:50

Hi Paul, a quick google tells me that its a bakers yeast. I honestly dont know if its suitable for brewing or what strain. Will try and find out, good question though, cheers. :D

Have you ever used Mauri yeast? Is it like an English or American ale yeast?
