Motueka

A breway with a focus on Motueka hops... have to say I had no idea what to expect with this hop..... having gone through a few trails before hand.... ever since doing a wheat/saison I've been struggling with the original elements (one was replace).... but one kept shorting as the worst was getting brough to a boi.... having to hacksaw an element out of the boiler it was a little frustrating that I probably fried one of the relays so was effectively back to one element.

This was a pretty full mash, I ended up with 500g of crystal, which was probably too much. I wonder if the hop aroma from 200g of hops might have been offset by the notes of the crystal malt.


Next brew planned as Super goose - using a proper hop spider.
