    Well, there can only be one name for today's brew! What a game of cricket! What a player! How many more exclamation marks can I get away with?

    Maris Otter 4kg
    Crystal 500g
    Carapils 350g
    Torrified Wheat 300g


    Mash 90 mins @ 68C, batch sparge X 3

    Boil 90 mins

    Challenger leaf 50g 90mins
    Fuggles pellets 20g 90 mins

    1039 into the FV@ 24C

    Pitched Crossmyloof RealAle yeast after mixing in tepid water for 20-25 mins

    Started at 10am, finished around 4pm, forgot to add the Irish Moss, too engrossed in the cricket.

    Definitely going to KingKeg this one, for a big session, while watching Day 4 of the 3rd Ashes Test, Headingley, August 25th 2019, over and over again!

    I wish. I'm lucky if I get a glass of water. I usually bring my own (mint) tea

    Truly once in a generation stuff today. The greatest English test cricket inning I've ever seen.

    S'pose I should have made Ginger Beer, had I known how the day would unfold. As it is, it should have a nice light brown colour.
    Just had a look, and Stokes is frothing well, looking forward to drinking this on return from Spain end of September.
    Next project I deffo need a brew fridge!!

    I was gearing up for a smoked porter this week - it was originally going to be called Smoke Stack, but after that innings I'm going to have to work Stokes into the title... Obviously not the only person with the same idea!

    Two good suggestions there! I was thinking Stokes Smokes 'em but now I might have to choose...
