    All I'll be doing the run tomorrow, saves the weather and suits me better. Hope that's okay. Thanks, Nick

    Thin jam sounds a lot better than what it tastes like currently. It was flavouring. Its really present on the aroma, slightly chemically and artificial on the taste. After decanting the beer also foams heavily, which I'm putting down to the excess trub and possible infection.

    It's more the yeast in suspension prior to bottling. You'll see the difference between my other beers. It will all drop out at some point, I just want it to drop before I bottle not after.

    It's what my plum porter has become. I failed to cold crash (to see if it actually made a difference, it does...), the plum extract is far too present and I think it's also picked up a wild yeast infection. ... Enjoy you lucky tasters....

    I'll have to update in the morning (by when it's likely a sludgy puddle) but at the moment snow is coming down in droves. Will see what sticks, but may have to delay till Friday 👍

    All Where do you by you water additions? I've been looking at the usual suspect sites, but nowhere seems to have half of the required parts in stock. I'm dubious about going down the ebay route, for quality concerns.

    Sounds complicated, but amazing if it works. I'll get the Ispindel first and see how the signal is. Cheers

    @PhilBrew, that Best Bitter sounds great, I've always wanted to try a heritage malt. Sounds like everyone is keen to take part, with there being some who are willing/able to now, and others who will be ready later. For those who will be ready later, how does Easter sound (first weekend in...

    Thanks @MmmBeer, I've looked at Strange Steve's calculator before, which convinced me it's not all so complicated. The bit I'm confused about is which acids are better than others, as well as which don't play well together etc. I've got a free supplier report and plugged it into the...

    That's the version I was thinking of, shame it needs constant WiFi. I may have to try and get a booster sorted.

    As a new years resolution I'm wanting to get into measuring all parts of my brewday, including my water adjustments. Before this point the only adjustments I have made is half a Campden tablet the night before. Which treatments would you recommend to buy, in which quantities? What should I...

    You misheard me @Obadiah Boondoggle , I said not sharing this beer is giving me a gut! Lockdown has been kind to my reserves but not my liver.

    I think if we're drinking direct from the taps we really should wait till Covid is gone 😂
