Today, I treated myself to a pint of Wilko Bitter - it isn't going to make it to France in April!

Not to worry, I put on a Coopers English Bitter today and tomorrow I will be away getting a new hip!

Behave yourselves whilst I am away and I'll log on again when I've started to recover - about a week from now, Inshallah.

Good luck with the hip Dutto! I had mine done 6 years ago when I was 46...instant pain relief,no pills and I'm able to do virtually what I like...though tying my laces on the hip side is a bit awkward.

We had a family night out just before Christmas and the only thing i could drink (cannot drink lager) was Doom Bar i was expecting it to be undrinkable going by all the negative stuff posted here but as you say its not a bad pint and i had several.
It used to be a really nice drop. Once sharps was bought out and the demand increased they contract brewed. Now all bottled Doombar is brewed out of cornwall somewhere (Bristol way if I remember rightly) and tastes completely different from the cask version (still brewed in Rock). So don’t knock it until you’ve tried the real thing, it’s not a bad beer at all brewed properly

Tonight I’m testing one of my beers that I bottled thinking I might enter it in the February competition and I’m quite shocked - it’s a completely different beer!

I don’t normally bottle beer so maybe there’s an art I need to develop.

The beer from my keg was flavoursome, kept it’s head to the bottom of the glass, was not particularly gassy, and had a depth to it that is now completely missing.

The bottled version is gassy but at the same time the head lasted only seconds, the beer tastes thin, and the flavours are wrong - there may be a background flavour that almost tastes bicarbonated!

I need to figure out what happened or I can never take part in competitions. The clues...

I force carbonate rather than secondary ferment. This beer was probably a couple of months old. The beers I bottled were among the last from the keg so we’re never [intended to be] conditioned in the bottle. I used a level-ish teaspoon of brewing sugar in a 500ml bottle. I’m tasting at about 18C because this has been in the warm carbonating.

Ideas?

First I had my Helecopter IPA with some of the can of mango fizz and it worked. Now on the IPA with pink grapefruit juice (see above) not so good. But you have to experiment.

Trying three craft beers from aldi tonight first one is buckhorn stateside IPA the flavour although packed with hops for me was pretty meh. The second freak ale works pale ale was spot on, again hoppy but clean and pleasant. The third one hop foundry krystallweizen was ok but a bit too sweet for my liking. They were all cheap for craft beer at 99p a can I would drink the freak works pale ale again but not the other two.

Started with my Kolsch now on a Leffe Blonde. I know some on here don't rate it but I think it's really good.

I found the last few remaining bottles of eisbock that I brewed in Aug '17. Has held up really well and very smooth despite the 11%+ abv.
nice did you send me one? - it was a Delicious new experience for me. I think you sent me one after 11% the old brain cells don't work as well as they used to.
