    What are you drinking 2024.

    @pilgrimhudd ‘First Gold’ in the glass, athletics on the telly… doesn’t get much better than this :-) Great pint - prefect balance.

    Did you use Australian yeast? ;)

    What are you drinking 2024.

    Cali Common, from the inimitable @pilgrimhudd. You know it's a classic anchor steam Cali as soon as those woody, minty NB hops kick in. Yummy. Carbonation is spot on and the head retention is brilliant - far better than I get athumb.. A bit murky because the yeast seemed to have settled around...

    My Brewdays

    I can relate to that... I'm such an infrequent brewer. I love it when I do it though :-)

    How dangerous is it?

    I seem to recall reading that copper is considerably more toxic to yeast than to humans; so if you were getting close to anything dangerous the beer simply wouldn't brew. Even so, one thing I recommend to people using copper immersion chillers in SS boilers is to prevent any direct electrical...

    Very tempted by the idea of doing this - but... planning ahead... Hmmmm could I do it ? wink...

    Moving on to my second (what the heck, it's Christmas and I'm thirsty...) This is a Chocolate Milk Stout (6.0%) 40 IBU Mmmmm - this is an absolute belter! Totally delivers on flavour: true chocolate, with just enough smoke to remind you this is a stout. Perfect balance of bitterness and...

    Secret Santa Reviews 2023

    Trying the first of mine: a Golden Ale (5.24%) "Where's the Frankincense and Myrrh? - Made with British Hops" A discreet hiss on opening and carbonation is just right. Quite bitter, an unusual flavour that I can't quite place and you can tell there's quite a bit of alcohol. Many thanks for...

    TETB’s Brewdays

    Kegged off the London Bitter that I brewed on the 5th Dec (OG 1.047, 4.6%) Tastes pretty decent, quite malty and no off flavours. After fermentation apparently 'finished' at 1.014 I was a bit concerned that 67.5ºc might have been a touch high for the mash; but after another week in the fridge...

    I see one of the German breweries offering Helles puts Mandarina Bavaria in it - I can see that working well...

    TETB’s Brewdays

    Helles (OG 1.047, abv 4.6%) is drinking nicely - not as crystal clear as I'd pictured in my mind; but reading the Wikipedia entry for Helles, it says: So I'm just going to claim mine is the trendy unfiltered variety wink... I'd say "full bodied, mildly sweet and light-coloured, with low...

    Glad to report this has safely arrived - undoubtedly the most securely wrapped bottle I've ever received athumb.. Cheers Santa!

    What are you drinking tonight 2023.

    Cheers! Glad it went down OK - it certainly fits the style guideline of "assertive hop bitterness" right? ;)
