Dennis King's Galaxy Delight

This question is for anyone to answer not just Dennis. I've recently bought the above from the Malt Miller, on the page it goes through the ingredients and says to dry hop 40g of Galaxy hops.....but for how long?

This may be a daft question :doh: for an experienced brewer but this will only be my second AG so any other hints/tips would be helpful :thumb:

Personally I dry hop after the initial frantic period of fermentation is over. Usually after about 3 days. Then I leave the hops in the fermenter until I rack of into the keg or bottles.

Well - Hopefully the man himself will be along, so you can have it from the horse's mouth. It's his beer, so probably do that!

For my own beers, if it's leaf hops in a hop sock, then a good few days (maybe a week). I tend to do it in a secondary bucket, unless I'm being lazy. I've blitzed them a bit first in a blender before too. I used Galaxy pellets (loose) instead on my own recipe last time and have used EKG pellets before too. Pellets often take up to a week to fully sink anyway, by which time I've chilled it down. I prefer pellets and have had much stronger results with them so far vs leaf hops for dry hopping.

Whatever you do, I think temperature is a factor as well as time, so maybe Dennis can divulge that too! :whistle:

I have only recently started to dry hop this recipe. At the home brew festival competition I spoke with the judge, who placed the beer second, and he said he felt it had lacked aroma. So now dry hopping for the last 3 days of fermentation. Glad to see Rob has sold at least one please let us know what you think. Not a beer to be drank to young. Even in polypins I leave it at least 4 weeks as it can be a bit too bitter if drank to young.

Dennis, they are selling really well, customers are loving the idea of brewing another home brewers successful recipe.

Thanks for the replies, of course I'll let you know what I think of it Dennis, not sure when I'm doing it but it'll be in the next few weeks.
Just to double check (as I said it's only my 2nd AG) it's a 90 min mash @ 66*C & a 90 min boil? I'm trying to get the hang of beersmith2 :lol:

Hi all, Apologies for hijacking this subject. I have just got this kit from Rob, and I am using it for my very first BIAB. With that in mind I am looking for some advice on water volumes. I have a 50l pot and there is 5kg of grain, I have looked at an apple app BIABCalc and its states I need 46.65litres of strike water for a 23litre brew? Seems a lot. Can anyone advise please.
Cheers

Dennis, Yes but it would also it would be very helpful to know how much for the initial strike water and the amount used for sparging. As you can see from my question I am a complete novice to all grain/BIAB, but hopefully once I have a couple brews under my belt I will be OK.

I use 15lts for mash and 20lts to sparge.

Hello there,

I have just got this kit and am looking forward to brewing it. It will be my first all grain batch, so just a noob question...
You say to mash with 15 liters and then sparge with 20 liter. This then gives a total of 35 liters, does that mean you have to boil of 12 liters as that does seem a bit much. Or is there something I have totally misunderstood?

:sorry: My Galaxy delight has turned into Galaxy Fright :oops: It was fermented during the last of the hot days and so has a bad taste. :ill:
I think it's destined for the drains :cry:
At least my next brew is now in the new fridge - shame I didn't get it sorted before doing the Galaxy Delight.

Sorry to bring back an old link.

I have just purchased the Galaxy Delight from Malt Miller. Cant wait to brew this one! Rob advised to leave this one for a few months to age so I intend to brew in time for the weather to start improving.

I just wondered what sort of water profile is recommended for this beer?

TIA
