    AArgh, is it worth bottling

    Never chuck anything until you know its well beyond the point of repair. I suspect the odds are you will be fine, the fact you have a healthy fermentation is a good sign

    Common brewing practices you’ve never done

    For me I found a consistent odd flavour from a few of the strains I have tried just as @strange-steve says.. Maybe it is a palette thing? But for me every brew I made with them contain a profile which I am not overly keen on and is less clean. The Kolsh one I tried twice, one was decent the...

    What causes gushers?

    Agreed with alot AA says , I would say I have had two types I woudl say are gushers 1) - absolute fountains which go like mt versuvius - for me these tend to be unique to that bottle so in other words not clean and thats caused the isolated issue, these tend to rip up any bottle trub too. 2)...

    My dad used to make Cooper Ceveza which was very pale although I have to say tasted very bland but you could try hop it, canadian blonde is like said pale again bland, so I agree dry hop as it needs that boost.

    Craig tube suspended

    Havent watched him for a year or so but used to enjoy his laid back content.. had a few early brewing tips from him. Sometimes he'd knock a kit together and be drinking it 6 days later so didnt always inspire to be the greatest example sometimes but lol I enjoyed his content and style.

    Hobgoblin Ruby Red clone

    I have seen so many clones for this mostly with styrian goldings in as well as fuggles and some cascade in! I think this style you'd need a good or right liquid yeast. I think a lot of the clones I seen were burton, i think the best dry would be s04 but I just dont think you get great results...
