I used to be partial to a bottle of dog now and again but had to be ice cold but will definitely give this a go.

MyQuls comments reminded me of that well known Newcastle law firm "Hadaway and Sh!te" t'was a fine brew in its day (beloved by my Late father in Law several time a night) but not so good now!
I used to love it, but it's just a chemical abortion these days.

I spent today helping Leo from Newcastle Brewing make their Ouseburn Brown Ale and I now have two bottles of this to try, just opening the first!
Is that the Ouseburn Brown Ale? I've not tried that one, let me know what it's like.

I brewed this yesterday, use BIAB method & thought i'd adjusted to 14L. But I undershot OG by about 10 points. I normally get quite a high efficiency but only managed 70%. The sample tasted quite bitter so I took a quick decision and added a jar of honey hoping to off set it.

I didnt really change anything in my process except thinking about it afterwards the sparge water was probably close to boiling point & my mash volume was slightly less than normal could this have made a big difference to OG.

I've just bottled another batch. I also missed my efficiency but it's only a few points difference, so didn't sweat it. Three week in FV and a week in the bottle. Tasted one last night as a test... already very good.

No longer brewed in Newcastle and they no longer have a copyright on tha name because of that!

Hi Clibit, I'm gonna brew your Centennial brown ale. I was just wondering what ale yeast you would suggest? I usually use dry yeast. And is that just normal brown suger? And does it go into the mash with the grain.? Thanks for your help. Cheers.

Brewing sugars go in around 10 minutes from the end of the boil.

At 85% attenuation, I guess US 05, that would be a safe choice and US 05 makes for a hop forward beer and tolerates warmer ferments than an English Ale yeast.

OK, thanks for that. Does that mean I can ferment at 20 instead of 18 cause my celler is exactly 20 degrees and I've got no fermentation fridge. Cheers

20C sounds good for US 05! Should be a nice beer.
