Dregs of the bucket after bottling my Cali Common. Lovely copper beech colour and well balanced. Slight cola note on the nose. It is years since I drank a Cali Common so no idea if that's to be expected. Possibly a result of the Crystal Rye I used instead of regular Crystal. Will leave it alone for a couple of weeks and see how it looks in early Sept.

I'm drinking a Cali Common too. First taste, bottled 20/7/21.

Verdict: pretty disappointing. Still quite cloudy, a bit flat and just doesn't taste 'ready'. File under "not worth touching for another three weeks at least, but not holding my breath anyway".

Poor planning, really, I made two 'high risk' brews that I thought might not turn out well in succession, this Cali Common, and a kolsh (still not bottled). I should be interspersing them with 'bankers' that I have brewed before and where I am confident of the results.
