Saturday - Made my partial mash Backside IPA: Light DME, 2 row, munich, cara-pils, caramel 60L, melanoiden, 100% citra hopped, US-05 yeast.

Sunday - Bottled my Gaetz Brook Pale Ale. Took a flavour sample, which was great! Will be a very light, easy drinking beer. And my clarity on this batch is by far my best yet!

Just brewed a Scotch Ale for some friends this weekend. First time trying something of this sort, so we'll see how it turns out.

Brewing up a pale ale with all Bravo hops this eve :cheers:
"Twenty years ago — a time, by the way, that hops such as Simcoe and Citra were already being developed, but weren’t about to find immediate popularity — there wasn’t a brewer on earth who would have gone to the annual Hop Growers of American convention and said, “I’m going to have a beer that we make 4,000 barrels of, one time a year. It flies off the shelf at damn near $20 a six-pack, and you know what it smells like? It smells like your cat ate your weed and then pissed in the Christmas tree.” - Bell’s Brewery Director of Operations John Mallet on the scent of their popular Hopslam.

So change of plans, I have extra hops and new hops that I need to use. What are your guys thoughts on Dutches Mirror Pond Clone but instead of using Cascade, I'd use a bit of Chinook with a bunch of Galaxy. Here are the ingredients:
Pale 2-row, Munich, Cara-Pils, Caramel 60L
Chinook (bittering and a 15min add), Galaxy @ 10, 5, 1 and Dry
US-05 for the yeast.

Thoughts on the combination of Chinook and Galaxy? or the recipe in general?

No issue with your recipe Stew but if you're looking to replicate Mirror Pond, you'll miss the Cascade and Ringwood yeast combo. In my opinion, both big factors in that great beer.

No real Ringwood sub. Maybe Windsor, London, or one of those.

Yeah last time I made it, I changed the yeast to US-05 as well, so I know it was not an exact clone, but it turned out delicious none the less, so I just planned on using my current hops, help save money and use up what I have.

I've never actually done the Mirror Pond Clone properly because I've always used us-05 as my yeast, so I'll have to try it sometime with cascade and ringwood to get the actual flavour. Always heard great things about that beer and it's one of the top rated, so I'll have to brew it properly in the future.

Thanks for the input
