new fermentation vessel

A new shiny fermentation vessel a fridge with it's top cut off and reassembled with a collar.... and a new approach to hop's - hop bursting.

270gm of hops split as...
11% of hops for bittering
11% of hops at flameout
15% of hops in the hopback
63% of hops for dry hopping

The hop profile was based on what was available in freezer, and the recipe for Brew Dog's Dead Pony Club. I'm not really looking to cloning the brew, but getting close to the hop character would be a massive success.

The brewday itself had a few teething problems - even with the collar on the fridge there wasn't enough room to tip the rehydrated yeast into the fermenter.
