    A pint of my HSD clone, really really nice. If it wasn’t for my dad I wouldn’t brew such beers that often but I’m glad I threw this recipe together

    Vineyard update- Well, spotted this today! The Pinot noir vines must be really happy as one of them has produced some grapes! They’re not meant to in year 1- it’s virtually unheard of. Must be a good sign for years to come. Sadly one vine is struggling, it’s turned red in colour which points to...

    I love how easy it is to strip down and clean. Worth the extra £100 to be able to do that alone really. Solid build quality and will shift wort like there’s no tomorrow. Plus it looks rather attractive. Lovely piece of kit

    How long did the Brett fermentation take and what gravity did it drop to? Just curious as I’ve never played with Brett before. Cracking beer really enjoyed it

    @strange-steve ’s Brett Pale Ale Opens with a good hiss and pours a golden orange colour with gentle carbonation. On the nose you’re struck with orange/sharp tropical notes which quickly fall in behind some proper bretty funk- musty, dank and a little bit barn yardy. Enough to make you excited...

    Transferring to FV... some grade A multitasking going on here, one eye on the beer, one on the BBQ

    If you look at reviews of the Angel Homebrew stuff, pretty sure it’s all from the same factory in China just different branding

    Nice! I used to do exactly that (mainly to avoid the ex wife years ago) and I'd get a mash going overnight then sparge first thing in the morning

    If I was brewing it for my employer then I would of course add the bile, supplemented with a generous dry hop of wet shite... but as its for my own consumption maybe not!

    This may be a little controversial as I know some people love Tiny Rebel but I think they are one of the worst breweries out there at the minute :laugh8: my other half ordered me a mixed case last year and nearly all of it was undrinkable. As you say its all artificial the flavour. Most of them...
