    I've often thought that bramling cross sounds like something you'd find on an autumn day in an English hedgerow. I'll probably be disappointed.

    It sounds good though, bet it'll come out ok.

    I do think that getting a clear beer at our level has some degree of luck to it!

    So you don't think it has anything to do with ritual sacrifice under a full moon? ashock1

    Update: AG#21 "Extra Viking" Baltic Porter

    Must not have gotten around to posting this, but I bottled this brew a few weeks ago.

    I batch primed with 65g brown sugar and bottled 28 x 330ml bottles with scarcely a drop left in the bottling bucket, giving me 2.5vols CO2.

    FG 1.020
    ABV = 8.4%
    SRM = 42
    IBU = 33

    Roasty bitterness from the malts like bitter chocolate, raisin notes, and an indulgent thick creamy mouthfeel.

    It's now tucked up in a box somewhere to condition until October or November at the earliest. Looking forward to trying it when it's ready but luckily got plenty more beer to drink while I'm waiting :beer1:

    I tried that but the wife didn't like it.
