    It's actually turned out rather well, IMO. Really wasn't sure what to expect but I am pleasantly surprised.

    I'll take the Belgian over the shandy, thanks.

    The daddy! KBS clone that worked out fantastic. She was a long time coming (brewed in June) but worth the wait. Best beer I've ever made... probably.

    Coffee, pumpkin, nutmeg and cinnamon ale. This has really come on since I first tried it. Rather enjoyable. One is winging its way to you @samale for your learned review.

    Batch Priming

    If you don't mind waiting an extra week or two to drink your beer, then why not, I suppose. Me, I am very impatient and want to try the beer ASAFP so I doubt I will ever use sugar again.

    Batch Priming

    I started off doing this when I first got kegs but quickly changed to force carbing. Sugar takes longer and you have less control. And as previously mentioned, how much co2 are you actually saving? I found it tricky to get the amount of sugar right. Some sources say use a third of what you...

    It was a Collab between unbarred and somebody. That's about 5 unbarred beers I've tried and liked them all. Think maybe they're based in Brighton.

    Is it just me or do all cigar city's beers taste very similar? This is the third or fourth one I have had that is basically the same. Btw, that's NOT a bottle of lube in the background. Promise! 🤫

    Damn fine pale. Bought a few from this brewery today (and before), yet to be disappointed.

    She's an imp alright. 10%. Picked it up in my favourite offy, the vineyard. Honestly, it was so good, if I brewed that at home, I'd have ribs removed so I could suck my own d!ck

    First go at a coffee and pumpkin ale. Only kegged it four days ago and the recipe said to secondary it for a week so I am hoping the coffee, nutmeg and cinnamon will become more pronounced. Really don't expect too much from the (fooking 2.7kg) of fresh pumpkin that went into it. Time will tell 🙄

    Brewing Clubs in Belfast.

    Just checked the national homebrew club and the last post from the Belfast group was October 2020, stating nothing much was going on but might when things went back to normal.
