    British Bitter with ZA hops. Call it the Anglo-Boer Wort.

    I value your experience more than your opinion - You could but you shouldn't - You should but I wouldn't - Time is on your side, never rush a beer - Have fun, its only beer - Don't believe all the crap you read on the www

    It's difficult to find anything worth being patriotic about. I guess I'm a long stay tourist in SA, and I'll eventually head home.
    I've never enjoyed any sab beer and have no desire to recreate something that I never enjoyed in the first place. I used to enjoy wine before I started brewing and now hardly touch the stuff. Too many beer styles, hops and combinations to try

    I'm fairly certain that the infection didn't come from municipal water, considering it was a fully sterile batch at time of pitch and bottling... I didn't get full boil, but I did get the wort to around 90C for an hour, so it's not there where the issue came in. I honestly don't know where the infection came from on that one - everything was sterilize and I actually never interfered with the batch. I never stirred it, I never agitated it, never opened the fermenter, nothing. Only opened it once to dump the gelatin (also sterilized), and that was it.

    1 pack on 20L, it's a hybrid and ferments like an ale yeast. Pre-hydrate in cold boiled water.

    ^ So how must the millions of "kit & kilo" brewers do it then ?

    Industrial high gravity brewing? They even top up after the ferment.
