Tree C Cooling

Fun morning of brewing today, cracking on a triple hop beast consisting of hops all starting with a C, which will give a pine aroma and a hint of citrus.

The real fun was with trying to cool the end product down from 100degC to a cool 22degC. The heat extractor did a good job on its first pass, but wouldn’t go below 30, and after 20mins of recirculating the beer between the fermenter and the heat exchange I gave up and resorted to the old school approach of a wheelbarrow of ice water to cool that bucket down! Loving the long summer, but it adds a few issues here and there!
