    First taste of a Coopers, gentle coffee chocolate stout, 5.8%. 2 weeks in the bottle, first taste. Now, where did I leave that patience? It was there a minute ago. I'm wondering if we could start a self-help group for people who can't let beer condition to maturity. I know they all taste great after 4 months but when I've not had a beer since Saturday and I'm loading up the fridge on a Wednesday for Friday I have the restraint of a 15 year old on their birthday (sorry, I've got twin fifteen year old boys, may God have mercy on my soul).

    Did I do something wrong here @chippytea or is this an autocorrect identification of something that might be rude?

    I know your pain. I've literally just pitched and put in the brew fridge (11:30pm) another Kolsch to leave to ferment while I'm on holiday. It's tough these days with two to get a brew going.

    Had a few earlier and now sharing this 750ml ninkasi from wild beer with myself. This is different to say the least, slightly sour yet sweet as well, nicely dry and a little funky so much going on in this beer but nicely balanced at the same time.

    back late from seeing my sister in law

    had my first HB in weeks a weizen which was lovely and now I am having a Bishops Finger..... I haven't had a BF for a few years and I remember it being not bad at all, but this one i have is pretty bad.. I actually wonder whether I got a dud one.. its not undrinkable or stale its just quite poor, I dont buy commercial beers often and this was because my latest brew was looking dodgy so I bought some to just help keep the stocks up .. the ghost ship was nice but this... dunno it just isn't how I remember it

    Had an Orval Trappist beer, was ok but I'm not really into these Belgian beers. It was quality but not a fan of the banana esters. I kind of enjoyed it but wouldn't buy it again. Just wanted to try something different from my usual IPA/apa. Also had a couple of brewdog beers

    Have had two amber ales,a second runnings with rye and roast barley,a tweaked brew form a mate and I forgot what it was though nice and citrussy and two of my lucky 7 brews.
    I'm on a streak tonight as I usually get to 4 bottles and I'm bladdered but we'll see as it maybe another.
    Hmm what to go for.

    Good luck with number 2! How old is your first?

    I've found early morning brewing (prep then night before) to be the easiest since my second was born, let's you sort of dip in and out through the day.

    He is 2.5 years. Yes mornings would be best. We are usually up early and waste a few hours in the morning, playing, eating 3 breakfast etc.

    Tonight is a Gale's Festival Mild clone, for 25L:

    Pale Ale malt 5kg
    Crystal 200g
    Black Malt 300g
    Moscovo Dark Sugar 500g

    Endeavour hops 31g/16g/15g at 60m/15m/5m
    Safale S 04

    Very good after 8 weeks in the bottle

    Could be almost any hops in a beer like this, to be fair.

    Gets even easier as they grow older when they wash,clean up and even help to bottle

    On Saturday night had a few mates round for a beer tasting and got through this little lot. The Mikkeller Cascade IIPA was a particular highlight for me.

    I bottled the Pale Ale with the "one teaspoon of sugar per bottle" instead of my usual "Batch Prime".

    I had this deep suspicion that some bottles got two teaspoonful instead of the regular one ...

    ... and today I found one! :doh:

    Ninety-nine percent foam and one percent ale!

    I opened a second bottle until it got down to normal; and then drank both of them! :thumb:

    A well earned pint though! :whistle:
