    I am a fan of Terry Pratchett. That is why I chose this name.

    I had brewed this to be ready for the Christmas days, after six months it is pretty drinkable.

    Final Batch Sparge  Infusion  5,072 L  94,247 C  77,000 C  15 min  
    
    After two weeks, move to a secondary vessel to rouse the yeast, and let it ferment it a little bit further. I noticed with S-33 that I could get get 75% apparent attenuation doing this. That is two weeks main fermentation, two weeks in secondary, then two weeks lagering, before bottling. I brewed this begin of June, I think I only tasted it in September.

    And tasting good too. Tastes like Bush de Noël from Dubuisson brewery. So having it brewed as a Christmas beer definitely succeeded.

    13 months old and not a trace of oxidation or other off tastes. Ages pretty well.
