Let us know how your beers turn out! I'm a big fan of their Ye Olde Pale Ale malt. I brew a fair amount of English ales, and it has that nutty, toasty, graham crackery character that I really enjoy in a base malt for those styles.
A couple days ago 100% Sugar Creek Vienna was used.
During the boil the hot break was non stop, tons of it.
Pitched one Novalager, next morning almost nothing.
I use an open bucket to start with so activity could been seen, a little bubbling, swirling.
Not any real krausen can be seen, just barely a very thin layer of small bubbles.
Pitched another Novalager, next morning same thing. At this stage at least a little
krausen is seen with batches. Did the double drop thingy, dumped in fermenter with airlock.
Tilt is already in use for another batch that was quickly done due to the DME batched
being dumped, so gravity is a mystery.
