@themaltmiller nice @DPD delivery

Just got some hops from @themaltmiller, Nice and quick delivery using DPD , I love the tracking system.

I ordered some Citra, Simcoe,and Columus Hops, the Simcoe were a twitter special 500gCool, that should be enough to try  a couple of brews. Although I did forget to add a us-05 standby Yeast to my basket -DOH So Tired

Lets see if I can do  a single hop like the Mikkeller  Simcoe  I tried last year.  Those hops even though they are sealed the aroma is seeping out yum… best get them split , re sealed and in the freezer soon…

I have a couple more brews in mind one with Juniper berries but I’m not sure if to go light (IPA) or Dark (porter)  and another with Vanilla and coffee, BTW the 4g of whole bean coffee in that 2L pressurised PET of Black IPA  that I left infusing  for 1 week tasted great, I’ll be definitely trying small scale infusion trials with other brews…

I also spiced up the Dana’s Delight with Corriander and Orange Zest with a post ferment infusion of 28g crushed.ground coriander seeds, Zest from 3 oranges left overnight in  several measures of Gin and then topped up to 1L with Boiling  water and left to soak for a day, strained and then added to the cornie keg…
