    Temperature of pressure barrels

    I have a batch in my pb in the shed after a week in the warm that appears to have lost carbonation. The shed thermometer is reading just under 10°c and when I open the pressure release valve band I get a hiss so there is co2 in the barrel. I used a co2 capsule to check it had sealed...

    American craft beer

    I'm on holiday visiting various relatives in the states and of course sampling a variety of American beers. I'll admit I like my hoppy beers (or dark stouts) and am a bit indifferent to "brown" and amber ales. Most American craft beers I have found have been pushing 6% or more, but have been...

    That feeling...

    When you take a sip of something YOU brewed and it taste better than lots of the comericial drinks out there. Currently supping my 2nd all grain attempt as my 5th finishes boiling. Still find pints that don't taste as good as my first kit beer (youngs aipa). Long live the home brew...
