Thanks Dean all updated.

You haven’t had any taste tests of the Julebryg Spiced Lager as yet? very keen to see how it turned out.

Yes I had a tester bottle 2 days ago , to be honest I don’t think the spice was very evident, the beer itself tasted good but maybe I was just expecting something different, the spice was very subtle , but I got plenty more to have over the next few days before I make a final review

hi people, very new to this and only done a few batches...I have the Germanweissbier brewing at the moment and I have just hit 11 days 0 hours and still no EOF detected... should I still leave it for a couple more days?

I’d leave it for a few more days, it will get there eventually but it should be done by 11 Days but trust the droid, it will know when it’s done for sure.

Neder Lager - 14 days 1 hour. Eagerly looking forward to this one... Not finding the ales particularly appetising, lagers on the other hand are excellent.

I guess might be best to up the spices a bit if its anything like adding own hop tea where hops are finally clearly evident - will await to the final verdict.

Neder Lager was superb, it was a tough choice between the Neder Lager or Lawn Mower Lager.

I think overall my preference is certainly the lagers without a doubt, did a couple of lagers to quickly fill some empty kegs so see how they turn out.

I took 10 500ml bottles of Julebryg to the family Xmas lunch yesterday, I had a few myself but my wife’s cousins cleaned me out of the reamaining Julebryg’s & my APA, Midlands & Pirate Life IPA Clone , after having the homebrew they didn’t want the Corona & Peroni my father in law supplied.

The consensus was that the spices were subtle but definitely there & more evident as the drink warmed up a little

Updated the first post, 10 days again for the Lawn Mower Lager - hopefully as good as I remember it but I think hops made the difference here as you can taste them as opposed to the hop pouches.

That's good to hear Dean, on to a winner for sure, I must say I have been impressed overall of the quality coming out of the BeerDroid.

Big decision today what to put on next.

Almost does sound like it might need a bit more in the way of spices, I don't let them warm up :)

Brand new user, new account and I have absolutely no idea what I am doing... so be prepared for stupid comments (in other threads)... but -

First brew -
West coast pale ale,
brew time: 8 days, 1 hour.
Will keg tonight and second ferment for 3-4 weeks

Better to learn from those making mistakes than make them yourself ;)

Shouldn’t have too many dramas though.

Welcome aboard.
