Opened a test bottle of my Belgian Honey Strong Golden Ale (heathen addition) and it needs more time conditioning but it's quite nice. It's a split batch with two different yeasts (MJ Triple and CML Belgian Ale - I had the former) and I could actually taste the banana. At North of 9% it's one to go steady with.
Now a pint of my CCC / Bramling X Golden ale. It's also a bit young but rather excellent.
just cracked open a green hoppy marzen i brewed. not sure i like the belma hop, it definitely has strawberry aromas but also has quite the harsh bitterness and leaves a powdery texture on the tongue. ive never had a hop like that before?
My petrol mower is on the way out too. Changed the air filter and oil and cleaned the spark plug. Runs for a bit coughs and then stops. I'm not stripping the engine so one more go at the filter and then B&Q.
