I have just had bottles of my 3rd and 4th AG which have only been 2 weeks in bottle. Very nice prefer the 4th which was made with target hops. Now on a lager i found from last winter and then onto the last of my evil dog

I always put four bottles of my brews aside and I hold them for a minimum of four months, tonight I had a Coopers English Bitter I bottled on 08/02/15 my second ever brew. It was gorgeous, it's really matured nicely, and I've still got three left!!

I like to leave mine 2-3 months before drinking but now that i have AG I'm trying them early. Also running low on stock as only making smaller brews. I do think that you get a really good beer if you can leave it long enough.

Ian, my stocks never last four months, but I do want to try all the beers when they've matured to their best so they get tied up in a bag with a slip of paper of what they are and when they were bottled. I keep an eye in my beer book, it means that every two weeks I get to try a new beer and now I get to try an old beer as well. Happy Days!!! Gotta love this HB'ing.

That is the way I do it , I have a pipeline so that I am drinking a few batches at the same time some fresh some ages and some inbetween, you get to explore them at various stages.

I am finding AG you can drink very fresh though, so will see what they are like matured

Friday is beer day so let's kick this off, Youngs Harvest lime lager, Wherry, John Bull IPA, Coopers Stout and there's a 1L bottle of TC in the fridge that I'm planning to ignore. But you know what they say "Man plans, God and the wife laugh" so we'll see how it goes. SWMBO has a 1L red grape WOW in the fridge but she's very partial to the TC over ice. So what's in your glass tonight?

I know this is a beer thread but what the hell.

Me and Mrs Tea have just bottled a WineBuddy Sauvignon Blanc 30 bottle kit so we will be sharing a bottle or three later.
