    The King Keg that is holding my Bitter Amber is only holding *some* pressure. Enough to always dispense, which as it is a top tap means its safe under a CO2 blanket, but the beer that emerges is very flat. So, I'm supping it as fast as I can. Its lush! I'm going to brew this again, but dry hop and bottle it.

    I've got another one of my accidental Helles in the fridge ready for when the bitter amber jug is empty.

    Not bad by any means. Very tropical hop flavour.

    My Tropical Stout @ 7.0% is perfect for gardening in this heat, but not after 4!

    Um... Think... Sweet stout, with more hops and stronger...

    Tropical stout is a style born, and still largely nurtured, in the West Indies — most notably the Caribbean — and Africa. ​

    First taste of my Belgian IPA: Pilsner, Vienna, Munich, and biscuit malt with citra, cascade, and columbus hops, fermented with Wy3787.

    Really pleased with this one, the yeast flavours blend nicely with the fruity hops.

    Indeed. Never heard of it.
    I think I'd like to hear about it.
    It's not Nigerian Guinness, is it?
    I love Nigerian Guinness.

    I recon we guess....
    Instead of a standard stout with just bittering addition you add a big dry hop... Amarillo,cascade,Falconers Flight...

    Went to Lidl again with the Mrs which is unusual for us ( we're Aldi usually, but I was a Lidl lad when single, but the store I went to in Mablethorpe has been totally rebuilt - it's much bigger) and got a can of Argus lager and something else ( it's in the fridge) . Argus lager is extremely, erm, average.

    Temperature on my train must be North of 40C but luckily opted for a session lager - Perle, Mittlefruh and Saaz - tastes like a cross between my Czech pilsner and german lager, neither of which I like... 20190725_161403.jpg
