    Secret Santa Review Thread 2021!

    That's both my beers in and consumed. Thanks Pilgrimhudd. It's quite a deceptive one this eh? It nearly floored me the first time I tried it as it was just too easy to drink. It was actually a Hazy Jane recipe from DIY dog which got clearer and clear as I got through the keg. This was...

    Secret Santa Review Thread 2021!

    Second one for me and it's an oatmeal stout at 4.6%. A faint little release of C02 when I opened this and the first sniff was a lovely roasty aroma. Ideal carbonation for a stout. Easy drinking with a good mouthfeel to it. I'm not very good at picking out flavours unfortunately and on top of...

    Netflix vs Amazon Prime

    I have both but really use Netflix far more. Only really watching a couple of series on Prime and when they aren't on then I only check it out if there's nothing to watch elsewhere. I am very much enjoying Wheel of Time on Prime though (once I got past the first two episodes).

    Secret Santa Review Thread 2021!

    First of Santa's beers consumed. An American IPA coming in at 6.2%. Came in a lovey flip top bottle which popped with a very satisfying POP. Enough for my wife in the next room to enquire what the noise was. Good head retention helped by the high carbonation. Not much of the expected aroma...

    What are you drinking tonight 2021?

    Stepped away from the disappointment of the last two and these were a vast improvement. Saturday night saved.

    What are you drinking tonight 2021?

    These two are distinctly underwhelming. Not sure if its because I have a cold and my taste is a bit off but they seem lacking in any character.

    Whats your favourite film and sound track?

    Favourite soundtrack for me is Bladerunner 2049. Favourite film (and it’s not what I’d consider the best film) is probably Gladiator (a guilty pleasure).

    How many more brews will you make in 2021

    1-2 more for me this year. Got a Dead Pony Club up next which always proves a popular choice with visitors. If the contents of one of my kegs is well received over Christmas then I’ll get an Exmoor Gold on before the new year.

    Nottingham yeast attentuation

    Nothing added, just the malt. I've read about this dry-hop effect before but never actually had it happen as far as I can tell. But then once I've dry-hopped in the past I can't say I've ever taken another gravity reading so maybe it has. I'm pleased enough where it landed having sampled the...

    Nottingham yeast attentuation

    @dmtaylor just a quick check in on this. Last Friday (day 6 in the FV) I took a reading at 1.016 and today (day 11) it's still sat at 1.016 (74% att.) Looks like it's run out of puff so I'll dry hop for 3 days and keg on Saturday. Next time I'll try something a little different see if I can...

    Nottingham yeast attentuation

    I pitched the Lalbrew Nottingham this morning, no rehydration, just sprinkled straight in. Well I say “in”. After aerating there was a tonne of foam on top so it went on that. After a minute or so I gave it a stir in with a clean sanitised spoon. Pretty sure most ended up in the top froth but I...
