    Name a Beer that makes you go WOW!!

    It’s not very often that you try a beer that really blows you away, but have to agree my first glass of Rochefort 10 was one of those moments. Rodenbach Grand Cru was another. Outside of Belgium I think Thornbridge Jaipur was a wow moment.

    Never tried target before. I'll definitely give it a try!

    It was when lockdown had just started and people were stock piling toilet roll, hand sanitiser and bleach. I grabbed the last bottle of bleach in Asda and it was not anything I'd used before; domestos ultra white and sparkle. This stuff will just not come off, no matter how many times you try...

    I’ve tried many bittering hops over the years and l find magnum just gives a nice clean bitterness. I’ve used first gold, Apollo & northern brewer recently. All pretty good, but magnum is my favourite bittering hop. I like using challenger for bittering too in English type ales. I don’t...

    First try of my Oktoberfest. It’s much darker than I was expecting and malty. It’s almost a Munich Dunkel. Nice though. Very drinkable!

    What goes with Sorachi Ace

    I tried my Sorachi Ace Kolsch last night for the first time and it is very lemony! To the point of being maybe too lemony! I only added 25g in the last 5 minutes. This hop is strong stuff. made another Kolsch today. This time I used 30g cascade, 10g sorachi ace and 10g chinook at flame out.

    What goes with Sorachi Ace

    My first thought was it might go well with citra, but I read on another site this combo can taste like lemon pledge.

    What goes with Sorachi Ace

    Made a Kolsch with Sorachi Ace the other week and got half a bag left. Looking for something to pair them up with in a pale ale. I believe some have had good results with Cascade. Also read online that a mix 3/1/1 of Cascade / Sorachi Ace / Chinook works well. Anyone found any other good combos?

    Which movie(s) have you watched recently?

    Fargo was great and loved the series that followed it! Anything the Cohen brothers do is pure class! On a similar theme we’ve just finished the second season of Lillehammer. It’s like a cross between Fargo and the Sopranos! Highly recommended!

    Which movie(s) have you watched recently?

    Yeah I quite enjoyed venom and I’m really not a fan of super hero movies. I think they’ve been done to death. Didn’t know there was a sequel coming out. I’ll keep an eye out for that. Tom Hardy is just brilliant in everything though. One of my favourite actors. i think one of his best movies...

    Agree gattaca was a great sci-fi, on the dangers of genetic engineering.
