A Scotch Ale 60 shilling.

I thought I was the only one! I could not find a way to bottle my small batches without fighting the autosiphon until I started using this beverage dispenser. Works perfectly!
I have both 5 &10 quart sizes US Plastics has a 5gal size. If you invert them at the correct angle you can use them like a conical fermenter and dispense your trub out of the spicket.

I literally leave all trub behind...I work very hard to transfer clear wort.   I know experiments show now impact on flavor, but wonder about its impact on foam.....just an assumption at this point.

I also give my chilling wort a few good stirs and allow the trub to settle out in the bottom of the kettle nicely. After that, a careful racking into my carboy with an autosiphon (I don't have a valve on my kettle) and crystal clear wort to ferment.  Also makes for better harvesting of yeast.

Ken's Oktoberfest. Wile E. approved. Had this last night. Very nice, Ken! Send me the intimate deets in a PM, please!



how was carbonation? rushed it to get it out door.
Didn't see this. The carbonation seemed a bit lower, but not bad and certainly not flat. It just didn't pour as heady as the pilsner did. Very nice bready malt character.

As recommended I was shooting for 1.050 and got 1.053 I think. I find the character of this malt to be very interesting and plan on experimenting a bit with it more.

Nice. How do you like the Equinox, Dan?

I'm really liking them and they go well with the other hops. I used the Equinox at a higher proportion and it has a nice fruity flavor and aroma.

I love Equinox and I love Citra, but I didn't like them together that well. They kinda clashed to me. As the beer got older, it started getting better.

That amber pictured above was hopped with equal parts of Equinox, Simcoe, Columbus, and Centennial... It's a resinous dankity-dank bomb.... Seems like Equinox and Columbus would compliment each other greatly.

I brewed an IPA last year with Equinox and Columbus. Really resiny, fruity and dank. It was tasty. Smelled like a bunch of different fruit trees planted in a field of cannabis.  ;)

I like Citra, but I have learned from my own personal tastes that I like it in smaller proportions with other hops. Your combo sounds good.
