Thats a hard one, I guess I'd have to say pale, kind of like this one.. usually not with gladiator malt, maybe 200g of Simpsons Medium Crystal instead. And very often there is a lot more hops, but usually the same timings for hops just different hops and bigger or smaller amounts. I love IPAs but I find it hard to empty kegs of really strong beer, so I mostly make hoppy pales or XPAs as they are known by sometimes these days. I also usually have an amber/esb on tap. the other tap will have a cream ale, ipa or dark beer.

Thanks mate.
I know all the sensible people say to brew the same beer a number of times to get to know your equipment, but I am enjoying doing something different each time. After the Pilsner I am planning on doing a dark double IPA (bit of fun to take away on a lads trip). But after that will be mostly sessionable beers. Also a big pale fan but enjoy the more hoppy flavours. Will give the above a go.
Will let you know how the Pilsner turns out, probably be Christmas before its drinkable.
Cheers
Chris

That was very lightly hopped, well compared to what I usually do, normally there'd be 20g of citra at 5min and whirlpool too, and probably dry hop too hahaha :)

Just opened this speaking of pilsners, its a bit weird having a very hoppy pilsner though. Cheers!

Ummm, not sure, but I haven't had a Dainton beer.
Blame the Yanks for the hop fetish.

Just to close this off from my perspective.
I did a taste test of this next to a Pilsner Urquell and they were similar. On top of the period of lagering it did take another 6 weeks for the beer to settle down and mature.
Would I do it again? Not until I had a second fermentation fridge. The extended fermentation and lagering kept my fermentation fridge at a lower temp than anything else I wanted to brew, so everything else came to a stop during this process.
Also I much prefer PA's, IPA's, Bitter's and Stouts to Lager's and Pilsner's.
All good fun though :) :)

I totally agree, when doing lagers you need the room for it or it stops the pipeline and I usually prefer an ale anyday anyway. Its nice to have a lager on tap but its a lot of work for a few litres of beer! Cheers!

Thanks drewtech ?

I've read on other forums that screw tops are OK to use. Just need to watch out cause some commercial bottles are made from thinner glass than home brew tallies.

Hey guys probably a stupid question but are the standard screw top glass big bottles right to use?Didn't realise they were all screw tops now.Cheers
