Fermenting: 05/09/2008 Bottled: 26/12/2008
The last beer kit I bought before i left Sydney was a Surfie’s Delight package from the Country Brewer. I previously made this beer back in January 2006 and it came out pretty well. With the cooler temperatures if Melbourne in early spring I’m expecting this version to be a cracker. I also learned from my previous mistake and added the aroma hops after 3 days of vigorous fermentation.
- 1.7 kg can of beer concentrate – Wal’s Pilsner —
a light crisp Australian pilsner.
- 1 kg light liquid malt —
made from 100% quality malting barley.
- 150 g Vienna malt — steeped in hot water for 20 minutes then strained into the wort
- 24g Saaz hops —
spicy and aromatic— steeped for 5 minutes then added to fermenting wort after 3 days initial fermentation.
This should be a great beer come November February when I anticipate it will be ready for drinking.
