    By beers improved no end due to him and I’m now lost without his calc. Hope all is ok with him.

    Lalbrew London..again

    I made a bitter today using this yeast for the first time. I mashed at 67c, brewers friend says it should go to 1.018. Time will tell!

    Brew day today. I had a couple of pints of London Pride last weekend whilst sitting outside a pub beside the river with friends and really enjoyed them. I hadn’t been to a pub since before the first lockdown and this was the first time I’d had a couple of LP for well over a year. I’d forgotten...

    Best Pilsner in 6 weeks

    CML have their Cali common yeast back in stock now. I think it’s the same as the MJ one but cheaper.

    Euro 2020, who's watching?

    And taken off in both too. Didn’t seem too happy when interviewed. Not that I could hear him. Scotland fans had a loader microphone than he did.

    What are you drinking tonight 2021?

    Ah, that’s not a beer phrase. I don’t know where I dragged it up from to be honest. Perhaps an abbreviation of “kicked the bucket” (died). Basically when pouring a pint the keg ran out of beer. Sorry for the confusion.

    What are you drinking tonight 2021?

    Was gutted tonight, my keg of Harvest Pale Ale kicked. I’ve been really enjoying that. One to add to the list to brew again. Fortunately, I have a free brew fridge so have been using it as a normal fridge keeping two kegs nicely chilled and ready to go for an occasion such as this. So, I placed...

    Never tried that 😂

    Dry hopping in keg

    I only kegged it at the weekend so I haven’t had the pleasure of trying to get it out yet 🤞 Edit - Sorry, misread the question. I used a syphon. 50g of hop debri was an exaggeration but there was a lot transferred over (I could see it through the tubing) to the point the syphon was pretty...

    Dry hopping in keg

    Hmmm, I recently tried a 115g dry hop in the FV without a hop bag for the first time and I’ve probably ended up with not far short of 50g in the keg 😬

    CML Voss at it’s very best

    Well, I’ve had fermentation’s bubble as much as that one but I’ve never had any of mine bark 🤔

    Hmmm, not sure chucking a 100g plus pellet dry hop into my APA was a good idea. I cold crashed to 1 degree for 5 days and it looked like everything had dropped out. The beer was clear as far as I could see down but after syphoning off about 10 litres or so I saw the hops debri starting to bubble...

    No covid jab

    I have a severe needle phobia (faint every time) and so have never accepted the flu jab and delay for as long as possible requests from my dr for the regular blood tests I need. However, I was at the clinic as soon as I got the call for both my jabs. Person after me had to wait a bit mind you 😳

    Thats very kind of you. I think the only thing stopping me is the worry of cleaning it. With the immersion you can see and get to the bit that comes in contact with the wort, with a counter flow you can’t!

    Brew day yesterday. A (pseudo) Czech Pilsner. For some reason my efficiency was down from 80% to 75% on this brew but that doesn’t really bother me. I didn’t get the wort to pitching temp with the chiller though. It was taking ages because of the outside temperature (28 degrees). I’d used...
