I have one pint of this left, for a batch of 39. it was bought for me as a christmas present. i had no problems with the fermentation, 10 days, then 5 days in thouse, and 3 weeks in the garage. the beer itself was extremely drinkable with a pleasant taste, as an intro to homebrewing, it is a fantastic start. all who tasted it were pleasantly surprised, and some didn't realise that it was actually homebrew.

Brewed Wherry a few years back using yeast from a bottle of Summer Lightning - amazing!

My wherry is just a week in FV and down to 1.012. Necking the trial jar was a treat!!! Cloudy and yeasty it may be, but it is delicious!!!

So looking forward to it.

I have done 3 Wherries now and while it's not my favourite Woodfordes kit, it is back on my list of dependables. I left the last one untouched in a cornie for 8 weeks and it came out much darker and stronger than previous attempts, very tasty.

I was in the UK in December and found this on draught in London, and to be frank what I had in my garage knocked spots off what they served up (although it might have been that pub/barrel).

I'm into partial mash and extract brewing, but I do have a spot soft for a few kits, the Woodfordes range being one of them...we have just started our wherry and it's very full bodied, lovely ruby colour, great head and er...isn't going to last very long. A great premium kit, a little less intense than the admiral's too which is good imo.

Last night SWMBO discovered four bottles of this in the cellar. They were bottled on November.

I rarely have the patience to leave them that long but they were hidden.

OMG it was so mellow, all the flavours had blended to create a thing of loveliness.

Must have more patience in the future.

Put this brew together on Thurs afternoon, 19th April. OG was'nt that impressive at 1034.

Placed it at the top of the stairs on a chair where I know the air temp sits between upper 18C and fluctuates upto 21C.

Reaction seems to have slowed so I have JUST (3.30pm 23/4) taken a reading.
TBH I did fear the 'stuck fermentation' reported as its only been brewing 4 days, HOWEVER the current gravity is 1010.....and its still bubbling, albeit slowly now.
So the signs are good.
