    Enjoying a few pints of my German Tettnang Pilsner. It's a very refined lager, more balanced than hoppy which I put down to the advertised character of the Wyeast 2308.

    Christmas Pudding Wine - 28% ABV. I think a 330ml bottle might be too much lol. 20190810_205018.jpg

    Lidl Downtown IPA & Big City, both brewed by my local brewery Stewart Brewing. Liked them both.

    User upper bitter, it's very nice 4.2% more like a session beer, big glass is because it was in a 1l bottle

    Mid afternoon and it's miserable outside... rain an all that, so I crack open a brew!
    Bit young, as in another couple of days it will have had it's two week carbonating period.
    So what am I drinking? Got a Coconut stout on the go and not bad too.
    Recipe below is for a small batch brew (10 litres)
    1.700g Liquid Malt Extract
    150g Chocolate Malt
    88g Crystal Malt
    134g Lactose
    300g Coconut Flakes
    35g East Kent Goldings Hops (for bittering)

    It has a most unusual taste, definitely coconutty but the chocolate malt fights through and kinda dominates, that malt never seems chocolatey to my tastes, it always comes across as more of a coffee taste and it goes good with coconut. This will improve I'm sure of it. At 5.3%... I think it has made the day a slight more pleasant.

    An interesting note: The 1.7g LME I bought off of ebay for a knock down price because it was out of date.... No hint of twang with this!

    #39 and #40

    This #39 was primed in a .45L bottle but with the sugar like it was a .5L, so a bit overcarbed for the style.

    Picked up some of the new Tesco beers today. Never tried a Brut beer before and not sure about this. It's lovely and dry and fizzy with restrained bitterness to suit but it has a pronounced wine/grape character that I wish was a bit more hoppy.

    I was thinking of making an English recipe with a touch of US like that, what was wrong with it?
