Default What are you drinking tonight?

Good evening all, Friday night is beer night, not had a brew since Sunday afternoon, spitting out feathers doesn't come anywhere near covering it off. So, down to business....I'm starting the evening with a (all) tweaked Coopers Stout (Coffee, 454g treacle and aramis hops), next will be a Wherry (454g Golden Syrup), then a Youngs Harvest pilsner (BE, spray malt, brown sugar, German cascade hops) and lastly a John Bull IPA (300g honey, German Cascade hops). There might be one more after that but that'd be it for the night, at that point the Sandman turns up and it's bo-bo's time. So what's in the glass for you tonight?

On hols so no homebrew. Been sampling the local fayre (Isle of Wight, Goddard brewery) but they're nowt to write home about tbh. Odd combos of hops I think (eg fuggle + cascade). So it's a golden hen and a tesco revisionist rye ale for me tonight!

Watching the cricket and enjoying a Mosaic IPA at present (SWMBO is upstairs, I refuse to watch Britain's Got Talent). Looking forward to a brew day tomorrow, not so much the bottling beforehand.

What's the Rye like? Only tried an Adnams Rye Pale and wasn't too keen. Have you had a proper try of your black IPA yet? Having a bash at one tomorrow.

Coopers Original Draught, five weeks in the bottle and it's now an excellent pint.

Better brew Pennine Yorkshire Bitter. Only been in the barrel a week but four weeks in the FV so pretty clear already. Why do I/we insist on 'testing' our beer so periodically that when it's actually good and ready, it's gone !!!

Because it is available with little effort and no extra cost

Swiftly followed by a Triple Tykes Export Bitter, in the barrel for six weeks and very nutty/caramel. Trouble is it 'gives me wind' (polite!) and the missus is not too impressed at 2 in the morning....
