    My tomatoes, aubergines and cucumbers are all coming on nicely. Chilli germination seems to have been ok for my first attempt. But my sweet red peppers are looking bad. I’ve ‘pitched more yeast’ (planted some more seeds!) so we’ll see. My growing is on a pretty small scale, I’m basically hoping...

    First lambic, possibly stupid question

    I did, my local bottle shop gets an extremely limited batch once a year that doesn’t last a day. This year they had 375s of gueze and 750s of kriek, one of each per person. I just bought a gueze as I felt that 750ml of kriek is a bit much for me. Regretted it by the time I got home! I dont even...

    First lambic, possibly stupid question

    I have a bottle of Cantillon Gueze waiting for a special occasion. Likewise I’ll be saving the dregs!

    First lambic, possibly stupid question

    The dregs from one bottle isn’t loads of bugs to kick off a fermentation. My temptation would be to mash high, say 70C, let US05 loose on it for a week to get some ABV and then add your dregs. This way, you don’t risk it sitting unfermented and spoiling, but the high mash temperature would leave...

    What are you drinking tonight 2020.

    While agreeing that comparison between beer prices and other drinks can be a silly exercise, I’ll do it anyway! On a price per volume basis, it tracks to about £22 per 750ml (wine bottle size). I suspect in most pubs, £22 gets a reasonable but not great bottle of wine. Sounds a cracking beer...

    I want to do a rye-heavy version sometime featuring Chinook for some spicyness

    Burning Sky Petite Saison. Floral, slightly tart, fresh and delicious. Quality mixed ferm beer in a 440ml can for under a fiver, I’ve said it before and I’ll say it again, they are wizards

    Fermented hot sauce

    Tucking into some homemade kimchi tonight while my wife cooks a stir fry. I didn’t write down the recipe but it’s pretty similar process to the sauces being made in this thread. I know it has savoy and Chinese cabbage in it because we had a lot of cabbage from a veg box. A couple of red chillis...

    When I saw you’d posted I was hoping it was to tell us about your breakfast beer! Happy February anyway!

    What are you drinking tonight 2020.

    Tonight I’m drinking a home brewed flandersish red that was blended with 20% red grape juice. It’s pretty tasty, fairly abrasively sour but some jammy fruit too. I’ve had a couple of successes now with adding fruit juice as opposed to fruit flesh into sour beers

    The Portman group strikes again........ Fourpure hit this time.

    Your point is fair though, I shouldn’t have been an a**e about it. The Portman Group is basically controlled by big beer and has a bit of history of going after smaller guys as the OP details

    Fourpure is owned by Australian giant Lion Brands.

    I had it two years ago and loved it. I didn’t particularly like last year’s version. And I’m not really into chasing super rare beers any more to be honest.
