Welcome to the block. I too used to brew years ago and the results were less than impressive. However just over 3 years ago I decided to give it another go. The main difference now is the amount of information freely available in sites like this and on sites like you tube. MY brewing has improved no end and I am now making beer that I am more than happy to drink. I would certainly take it ahead of most of the commercial lite lagers out there.Hello.
I’m a new kid on the Block here.
I used to brew my own years ago and gave up because the Beer I made was Crap. Now what with the Pubs shut I bought some gear from Wilco’s (I live in Kent.UK) I made a Woodfordes Wherry. Barrelled it. Left it for 24 Days.
I tried my First Pint last night. I was reminded why I gave up the First time. It tastes like a Kit and leaves a biter aftertaste in my Throat. I will leave it for a couple more weeks and attempt to swallow it.
But then you can switch to Old Ales, Barley Wines, Stouts and all the other beers that are great on a cold day with the fire on.
Absolutely! Not much can beat those kinds of beers in the cooler weather - especially good when you’re sitting on an old sofa in front of an open fire in the pub with a few mates. Also, at the end of an autumn evening outside, sat round the embers of a fire following a great family BBQ.But then you can switch to Old Ales, Barley Wines, Stouts and all the other beers that are great on a cold day with the fire on.
