Mine reads about 4 points out, which you can adjust, maybe yours is out too.

thanks will have a good read of that and will have ago at seeing if it needs calibrating lol..


i wouldnt imagine they are out by to many and to be honest with the old method of a hydrometer in a bit of wort isnt perfect either i would imagine

but these are great tool i am already thinking of getting more tilts

Hey All

Just Poured my 1st pot of the 2nd round Coopers Xpa clone

The colour of the beer is alot different to the 1st go at it . below is the coopers xpa clone 1st attempt




The second attempt as i mention i only changed 1 thing and that was for the crystal to light chyrstal

my 1st attempt wasnt happy as i was getting some burnt like flavour even though it subdued over the keg life

but this second time round is much better and the colour is more spot on to the colour of a coopers xpa

here is the pick of the 2nd attempt


it is getting very close to where i will love this


cheers

Crystal malts can vary greatly, its hard sometimes, unless you can get the details from your local HB shop on the numbers for the crystal of the batch you have, its a bit of a guess! As long as you're getting close to what you want, all good!

its the thing about homebrewing you can trial and error without anyone seeing the ight of day if it turns bad

i do agree malts can vary greatly

the one you provided in this thread in which i appreciated was a great base to start with.. to be honest i loved the colour of that batch and i think i would brew that batch again sooner or later and probably sooner..

so thanks Gash for pointing me in a right direction..with recipe.. its a base to learn and improve from

They are malts I dont use, but I just checked and as the recipe says Brewfather lists it at 145ebc... I just checked on the Malt website and the light crystal malt is EBC 100-140 and the medium is listed as 140-160.. so either they changed or brewfather is wrong. Brewfather just said crystal malt I think didnt it? so you know things change, hard to keep up with all, but its when things like this happen when you go hmm somethings not right! Cheers!
