    4 day bank holiday.

    How about leaving the late May bank holiday as it is (I hate Mondays with a passion anyway) and give everyone an extended bank holiday on the dates given in addition? We don’t get enough bank holidays here compared to the rest of Europe as it is.

    Brewdog punk IPA clone

    I’ve tried a punk clone a few times now and it comes out the same colour as the commercial one (it’s mostly pale Maris otter malt with a bit of caramalt thrown in there) maybe slightly darker but not like a dead pony club colour (I always remember the original one was darker than the current one...

    Some help with method on first AG brew

    Beat advice is just do it and see how it turns out. I put off my first AG for weeks but then just did it (I have a grainfather) and the system itself does most of the hard work. Brew calculators are a godsend! I tend to use 15-16 litres of strike water when I do my brews. Make sure you keep...

    Berliner Weisse Recipe

    I can’t help RE the recipe, just checked on the grainfather community and there are hundreds of recipes but nothing on the souring. Seems wheat and Pilsner malt are the fermentables. Going to watch this thread as I would like to have a stab at a Berliner weisse, I am quite partial to the style.

    Head retention.

    Well, my younger sister once stopped Justin Rose (the golfer) mid round at the Open to ask for his autograph. He was still an amateur at the time and must have only been 17 or so himself. It was just as he was starting to be talked about as the next big thing in golf. All of this was broadcast...
