    What did you brew today?

    Yesterday was a 30 litre batch of a clone of Ampersand's Bidon - a 3.9% modern pale ale full of El Dorado & Citra. This is the beer I bought a beer engine for as it's fantastic on cask so 10 litres will be split into 2 x mini kegs for that & the rest will go in a corny. Brew day was smooth...

    What did you brew today?

    Rhubarb added to batch 1 today. Whizzed it up in the food processor to try & get maximum flavour & colour out of it. Batch 2 will get the preserved lemons mid week ready for kegging next weekend. Both are down to 1.008 & with the liquored back OG at 1.033, it's looking like a very sessionable...

    What did you brew today?

    I've only done it with a Berliner but it gives a lovely doughy flavour. Might be adventurous & try it with a saison!

    What did you brew today?

    Split batch of a no boil Berliner Weisse today. 3kg pilsner & 2kg wheat should give me around 35 litres of 1.041 OG wort. I'll liquor that back to 40 litres to give me 2 x 20 litres batches fermented with Lallemand's Philly Sour. One will get around 3kg of fresh rhubarb added & the other 3-4...

    What did you brew today?

    A 30 litre batch of a clone of Ampersand's "On The Wing" today. It's a 4.5% NEPA & my local homebrew club are doing a "brew off" to see who gets closest to the original. Grist is Golden Promise with some oats, wheat & dextrin & hops are Ekuanot, Amarillo, Citra & Chinook all at whirlpool so not...

    Little Earth Fest 2024

    I'm going to try & head there for a day as I'm fairly local. I went last year with a mate who knows Tom & Dani (LEP owners) so we wangled a camping ticket but he's since given up brewing & drinking altogether so no such luck this year. It's a great event & the beer selection at the pub is...

    March 2024 - Freestyle competition

    Thank you to all brewers who submitted entries this month. I thoroughly enjoyed the judging, particularly the wide range of styles and would definitely recommened others have a go at this category in future. Without further ado, here is the top 3: 1. @Leon103 - DIPA 2. @samale - dark lager 3...

    March 2024 - Freestyle competition

    10 beers from 5 brewers! And a lovely selection to boot; saisons, IPAs, lagers, a bitter & a stout! Will make a start on judging tonight with a view that I'll likely need to finish tomorrow night!

    What did you brew today?

    It's definitely an extravagance but I love cask beer! Managed to find a bit of kit on eBay that means I can attach it to a 5 litre mini keg which is perfect for a weekend (or a particularly thirsty evening!).

    Worst brew-day ever, any ideas?

    Sounds like possibly a finer grain crush than usual? Rye can be sticky but not as bad as you've described when it's only 1 in 7.5 kg. Fingers crossed you still get a beer out of it at the end!

    What did you brew today?

    Back in the saddle after an inadvertent 4 months hiatus. Bramling Cross ESB today, pushing the limit of my kit to get 30 litres so I can fill a corny & 2 X mini kegs to serve through my beer engine. Hitting the numbers so far! thumb.

    I've received a Cali Common in the post today but no name attached. Who's going to lay claim?

    February Dark beer competition

    My Triple Bock is based on this recipe from Michael Tonsmeire - https://www.themadfermentationist.com/2009/05/wheat-triplebock_17.html?m=1 I didn't get up to that FG though & ended up with a 16 litre batch rather than the 20 litres I aimed for. The grain bill was too big for my kit to be honest...

    March 2024 - Freestyle competition

    With @samale having finished judging the February dark beer competition, it's time to open up this month's category. This month is Freestyle which means anything goes. Every entry will get some feedback & there's a prize up for grabs in a 2-3 can selection from my local brewery, Ampersand...
