    Busy day. Don't worry I brought refreshments. First a wheat beer from the father in law, dated 2016! A kit wheat beer with extra sugar going by the note attached. Tasted of rank fizzy water and went straight down the drain. Next up a Polly's which tasted of pine trees, quite nice. The Moor...

    Forum Christmas Brew

    Brewed mine yesterday, I used cocoa powder in the mash instead of nibs as I couldn't get hold of any. Tried the wort before the hops were added and it tasted like chocolate horlicks 😍

    Having a bottle of my weizenbock whilst I brew. It's got a beautiful deep red colour to it, the pictures don't do it justice.

    Another hoppy NEIPA thing tonight. Keep Left DIPA from Verdant Brewery. Less sweet and more hoppy than the Polly's DIPA I had the other day, I definitely prefer this balance. Still half a fridge full of hoppy beasts to get through. I'll try and make a dent this weekend for Notkoberfest.

    I fully plan on winning the euro millions tonight so I can join you. If not I'll have to wait another 30 odd years!

    September Competition - American Pale Ales

    Would an American barleywine count? Only a 330ml bottle though, it's potent.

    As it's my first I'll bottle prime instead of Batch priming then. I can do half at 1.8, and half at 2.2 and see what I prefer.

    Checking the gravity of my English Ale this morning (and having a cheeky taste). I could drink this straight out of the fermenter! It's super clear already. How high should I carb it to? 2.2 vols? Or is that too much?

    Search your consciousness, you know the answer... I'm out of coal! 😂

    Well at least you'll have plenty of time! Just had my last BBQ of the year and a can of Polly's Slow Repetitions DIPA This beer really confused me, it's sweet like an alcopop! Almost no bitterness, sweet and fruity, full thick mouthfeel, and zero alcohol bite (at 8.8%). My wife could smell...

    Should we expect the server to crash permanently from Friday evening onwards then?

    Left the mash in the wort - problem?

    👏 👏 👏 Don't worry, you'll earn your stripes!

    I wasn't expecting much tbh because its only a weak session beer and I usually go for a stronger brew, but this beer was great. I've enjoyed all the Beer52 box so far, it might just be worth signing up.
