    Just not to my taste. I like the more American style hops

    I realise now I have had one but they have changed the label, I only know that as I have reused the bottle, not memorable in any way.

    Looks good though. Should be very dry, a local brewery made a great one with champagne yeast. It also wasn't very hoppy/
    Its a rather trendy style though so may fizzle out?

    IMG_20190815_194213.jpg Dark mild and it's very good, this is prob the best beer I have made so far it's still not quite ready, it has a nice amount of bittering and a very nice roasty flavour, the worst thing about this brew is I didn't save the recipe doh, lesson learned

    It must be down to the champagne yeast I presume??
    This one has been my pick of the new Tesco bunch so far:

    Me too Dan the cloudwater neipa is pretty good aswell you can tell brewdog are in there just doesent quite have that big Mouthfeel and hop bomb that cloudwater do so well. Presume it's just down to the price point though.

    I dunno if eating Danish Blue cheese is correct while drinking a stout, but it is going down quite well after a good morning brewing a Toucan (Two Cooper Can) Stout. This Black Sheep Milk Stout is indeedy quite stouty, not very sweet though and certainly no hints of Chocolate or coffee. There is certainly a Black Sheepness about this beer which one could easily guess it to be so.

    My tesco isn't due the CW/BD neipa until next weekend according to the labels on the shelves today - but agreed, there can only be so much you can do for £3 a can.
    Tried the sour solstice today - way too sour for my liking ashock1

    Having a lager night. First up is my first sample of my house pilsner. Just under 2 weeks in the bottle. Lovely and refreshing. Happy with this

    Agh! Ya big jessy, it's not that sour. I'd say it's more tart, than sour. Not getting much blood orange but tons of cranberry.

    Just drank my first own recipe brew:

    1kg Belgian pale malt
    250g caramalt

    Chinook hops 3g at 60 mins, 8.5g at 15 and flame out, 10g dry hop

    Are all homebrews this good or did I just stumble onto a winning recipe?

    My homebrew bitter Amber; which is nice, but the King Keg it's in won't hold much pressure, so it's very low in carbonation, although I'm starting to prefer my beer like that, lol.
