I think in the end it might be the Belgian White that surprised me most. I may have to buy a couple more, you know, just to be sure.
No, this trip was all about pubs. I live in the countryside and now and again the good lady and I like to go and have a blow out in a city, except I hate cities, and York feels nice and town like to me so that's where we head! Still trying to find the perfect 'local' there ( which may or may not just be my excuse to drink in shed loads of pubs )No brew york visit?
We've a Sam Smiths pub in Edinburgh if you get desperate.
I hate to say it but you’ve nailed my biggest issue with kits they take much longer to be ready to drink in my experience with all grain you can go grain to glass in 2-3 weeks, with a kit I find you need 2-3 months, meaning I need a much bigger pipeline. However sometimes love the really short brew day and with the right kit you can get a pretty decent pint.Found my last bottle of St. Peter’s cream stout kit. Brewed straight on the 10th Feb 2018, bottled 8th March 2018. Came in at5.2% ish. So nearly 2 years in the bottle , incredible mouth feel & everything a cream stout should be. You could tweak this with a bit more lactose & some cocoa nibs but to be honest if I made it again I would brew it straight again & age it 2 years. I know a lot of people on here knock kits but it’s a great way for a quick brew & to build up inventory, gives you more chance to age the ones you want to. Patience pays dividends as we all know & this beer is a perfect example. Cheers.
it is very style dependent, IPAs work well as do session bitters. S-04 can ferment out a batch it 3-4 days at 20 degrees, plus a few days to, settle out you can be ready to bottle within a week. A week to carb and in some cases you can be ready to drink this is especially true with a Kweik yeast. Normally I would say three weeks rather than two and ESB’s, stout#etc benefit from longer maturity.Grain to glass in 2_3weeks wow I mabe interested in trying a small batch of this, is there any quick brews to try. Anyone.
Nice... I'm on a 5 day course in Leeds arriving 1st March, so already have an evening in brewdog and an evening at the head of steam planned only 3 more evenings to fillYes nice place York but some prices can hurt,, l found Leeds much kinder on my wallet and plenty of quality pubs too.
