Festval Landlords Best Bitter Review Started this one off today after reading some good reviews of other Festival Ales and dropping into my local home brew shop in Lincoln. Dont know if I am allowed to mention them by name but they have been very helpful to me as a beginner. The instructions included in the kit are quite comprehensive and easy to follow. Obviously a fair bit of thought has gone into the kit and it comes complete with two sachets of extract, yeast, hop pellets, brewing sugar for kegging/bottling and a straining bag. At £24.95 it was a couple of quid dearer than say a Woodfordes kit but it does have some added extras. I have made it with tap water treated with a quarter of a campden tablet. The extract dissolved readily in three litres of boiling water and then topped up to 23 litres and in with the yeast. Not too much of an aroma at this stage but the colour looks promising being a pale copper.Not too worried about the limited aroma as the hop pellets go in at 5 days which should boost that. Ive been running around the house with a thermometer trying to find somewhere warm enough for fermentation and suprise, surprise its ended up in the airing cupboard! I may have to invest in a brew belt at some point so the towels dont get relegated to the wardrobe.. Apparently this is supposed to be a take off of Timothy Taylors Landlord, I didnt know that till I bought it, but thats a local brew and one I really enjoy so fingers crossed. Will keep posting as it develops and if all goes well I may look at bottling some and entering it at the Spring Thing!
