Beer Recipes / Re: British Golden Ale

Look up Seymour Citra Gold on the jimsbeerkit forum. It's a golden ale with Citra, very popular with UK brewers. I've made it 3 or 4 times.

I am brewing this now.
Changed it a bit, all citra hops, and trying out the Imperial House yeast for the first time, also I don't have the orange peel.

I used them in a bitter.
It was very good.

The guy that created the dual scale Brix/SG refractometer should be kicked in the nuts.

Since I use one of those, I'm wondering what's the problem with them?

 I brewed a beer using it as a base malt with a bit of C40, northern brewer hops and BRY-97.
 I suck at describing flavors, but I thought it was good.

But it's a "booze maker"!!
"beer, spirits, cocktails and mixers"

So not only will it brew beer, it will also distill whiskey, and mix your martini!!!

How could you not want one of these.    ;)

My clearly unpopular opinion is that how well your grain is milled makes little difference. I shop at several different shops that and also have a mill of my own. There is an obvious difference in the crush depending which mill I use, but my preboil gravity is always close enough for homebrew. Never get a stuck sparge.

I'm guessing that the difference comes from the depths of the fermenters. Modern cylindroconicals can have significant depth, while the straight side walls of a square fermenter make it structurally more difficult to make them deep. The 1000 bbl cylindroconical fermenters I saw at Sweetwater in Atlanta were probably over 40 ft tall.
So it's the depth not the shape. At the homebrew level I am guessing it wouldn't matter.
A 6 gallon round bucket vs. a 6 gallon square bucket would make no difference?

  I am curious, what difference does the shape of the fermenter make? Why would yeast behave differntly in a square or round fermenter?

I don't use the fermentation profile.
How does BeerSmith know when my beer is done fermenting?

The local radio was playing , Getting Ready to Get Down , for a while.
I'm also familiar with Kathleen.
Pretty good stuff.

Just a thought, could you use the false bottom from your old cooler?

   The discription for the Munich yeast says " Aroma is estery to both palate and nose with typical banana notes."
   The Classic says "Aroma and flavor have balanced fruity esters and spicy phenol notes"
       I am going to brew the Roggenbier.  I think I would prefer spicy phenols to banana. So I'll probably use the Classic.

  I have a pack of each of these and was wondering if anyone has tried them both and what your preferences are?
  I am thinking of brewing up a Dunkleweissen or Roggenbier.
