Anzac Ale 2012

Although I was overseas this year or Anzac Day i have finally got around to brewing my 2012 Anzac Ale and will keg it in a few days.

I ended up brewing a double batch which will be split with Fiona next door and it was only the second on the new system and first double. As a result I forgot to measure a few things and so the guide below is not 100% correct, you should be fine ingredients wise though!

Did a little experiment with this one, when split into the two fermenters we used the special release White Labs Australian Ale yeast, mine was done with a 1L starter to get it going and Fiona’s was direct pitched from the vial. Both were showing signs only six hours later so it will be interesting to see any differences – mind you the yeast was extremely fresh also.
