Might be a good one to keep brewing again and again until you perfect it to your taste.

Be cool to see how different additions etc change the end product

Love the colour! but it is a bit odd with the grain bill
4.8 kg (95.2%) — Gladfield Ale Malt — Grain — 6 EBC
240 g (4.8%) — Joe White Maltings Crystal — Grain — 142 EBC
Maybe it was a dark batch of crystal!!

You shouldnt be able to taste the magnum hmmmm
did you put the magnum in last?

Cheers!

Call it XPTripleA, battery ale.

Maybe it will calm down a bit after time in the keg.

About that burnt taste. That happened to me once when i lost track of the time and boiled way too long. Ive heard it can happen with too much of a vigorous boil. Only use enough power to get a nice rolling boil. Cheers, brew on.

Thanks finnroo , that may have been where the issue was i may have overboiled it for a bit to long

As i remember i lost a bit of concentration as Carlton match was starting, i was actually hoping to have the brew well and finished by then and with a bit of a sleep in didnt help my cause..

i Should have just plugged my lap top and switched my iptv service on in the carpot and watch both boil and the footy
