Cleaning out some fermenters that have had yeast cakes sitting in them for a few months. Surprisingly they are in good shape still?

Having a batch 19 one of the only pre-prohibition lagers I have ever found. It's very good, a lot of grain and corn, my favorite coors lager I have had, not that there is much competition.

So onto number 2. This 14 units a week is going well! 🤪🙄

But apparently it’s 2.9 and not 3 🤔

Also, the husband says he prefers Staropramen to this. I can’t tell the difference with my beginner beer palate 🤷‍♀️

Your spreadsheet is correct, as it rounded up the first one from 1.452 to 1.5, but by the second one it comes out at 2.904
The moral of this seems to be -
The more beers you drink, the less it adds up to. 🍺🍺🍻🍻🍻🍻🍻🍻🍻
And see, my spreadsheet agrees! 🥛

Anyway, on to mine:-

The filtering of the last of the Exmoor Gold.
No such thing as 'Lees left in the cask' in my book! 😜
Oh damn, I was so keen to post that, I dumped the filter paper in the bin before I wrung it out into my glass!
Quick, it may still be possible to retrieve, and I could suck on the bin-pizza to make sure. 🥴😆

I don’t count units. There’s really no point, I’m over. There I said it, I occasionally drink more than I should. :rolleyes:
The recommended units thing has always puzzled me. There’s not another country in the world who agree with the 14 suggested by the chief medical officer in the UK. In fact in Spain (for men) it’s 35 units per week. In Hong Kong it’s zero, so who is right?

Seems to me that you don’t need to cut down at all @Hazelwood Brewery, you just need to move to Spain 😉

Well, that didn't last long once filtered...

A sparkly clear glass of my Saaz pale ale. Any hazyness is condensation as it is becoming cold out there in the garage cellar/bar.
Unfortunately not a patch on the Exmoor.
I wouldn't drink them this way around again.
Note to self, "Saaz pale ale first,
Any other tasty ale after".
It takes a while to appreciate it as a simple thirst quencher, which is what it is.

The independent state of Hazelwood has no limits, on anything, ever.

I’ll probably only have one more so I’ll make it a Tripel. 😋

That looks soooo pale for the strength that a Tripel will be.
Good thing it's a finisher.🍺 👍

I'm restricting myself to the Saaz pale ale, to preserve other stocks for Christmas.....
Or perhaps I should brew another Hoppy Pale Ale of Kent for them?
Then I can finish the reducing cask off with a clear conscience!
That sounds like a good plan!
🍻
