Based on Gareths comp winning beer, thanks for the recipe this came out great! Interestingly although A20 is supposedly the same strain as 644 it did show some differences in performance for me, finished high, not looking like its going to clear anytime soon etc etc although the ester profile does seem very similar to descriptions of the whitelabs version. Anyway hope you enjoy the video cheers

I owe Gareth one too.  My version has got me a visit to Cloudwater to meet their QA/fermentation person. and I love the beer too, and will be doing variations on it.

Have you tried Adrian's Black Ninja yet? Well worth it, it's a lovely beer.

2 brews done off the base recipe with variations that have been very good goes to show its a real solid starting point and also a cracking yeast to base it on. Had some more tonight and its got even better since the tasting in the video so well chuffed. Bravo Gareth!

Not tried the black ninja but will put it on the list!

I did the Ninja with your kveik yeast and it worked a treat. I also used black malt instead of carafa, no carafa in stock. Worked well too.

Cheers chaps.
Can’t even recall why I decided to give the 644 a go now.
But I guarantee it’ll be a staple on rotation in my annual brew lists.

Yours looks great dude, mine did clear eventually, not crystal clear but not hazy either.

 These could still be the same strain but one may have been "cleaned up" a bit

yes quite possibly also lots of potential differences in process that may have caused the difference in attenuation etc. Similar end result either way, a very tasty beer! [biggrin]
