    This beer gets increasingly lager like as it conditioned. I found, at 2 months it was really nice

    So what MyQui forgot to mention is that mashing that amount of Rice Crispy results in a lot of snap crackle & pop!
    I massively overshot my OG too with 1.048 at 17.5l that I diluted down to 20l and thats still quite high.

    I would have thought that doing a congee type preparation on the rice would yield more fermentable results. In Brewing Classic Styles JZ and JJP have a cream ale recipe that includes a flaked rice option. They say to lengthen the mash to 90 min minimum (65C) to convert the rice and also suggest a 90 min boil to reduce the DMS.

    Hi Rodcx500z, congee is just a rice porridge. It does look like a nice beer!

    I made some Golden Syrup today for a brew next week. It ended up a lot darker than Golden Syrup, more like dark amber, because I let the caramalization stage go on too long (I'll know for next time). I'm pleased with the results though. Really cheap to make too. I bought a bag of sugar from lidl for 64p. Plus a teaspoonful of lemon juice

    Nope. I've always been intrigued by recipes which only had a bittering addition. BYOBRA has a couple, Bass being one of them. I bought a bottle of Bass a few weeks ago to try and really enjoyed it. So I thought I'd have a crack a making a beer with no flavour addition (which isnt a stout)

    I got lots of sulphur coming off the starter , I suspect because I cultured it up too quickly and stressed he yeast. Doing a bit of research I read that even if starters smelly sulphury the beer will turn out fine. But I didnt want to risk it in batch. I will start again, culturing it more slowly. But the last couple of times I looked in my local ASDA there were no bottles of London Special ale.

    Fair enough. I agree it's not worth risking a batch.

    Interesting, Mysupermarket suggests that it's only currently in Ocado, but I've seen it in a London Tesco within the last few months. Maybe Marstons are playing silly buggers, or there's less demand than they thought for 6.4% beers.

    Although it was out of stock for about 2-3 weeks, they got it back in stock and I bought a bottle
