    I had a few bottles of Maggie's Leap last week. Really enjoyed it. Loads of flavour.

    Just trying this new one from asda. It's refreshing and has mildly tropical hoppiness
    but there's something harsh about it.
    Not bad for £2.20 a can

    After the tension of the cricket and the effort of fixing the back gate in the sun, I think I deserve another.
    This has a much more pronounced tropical fruit aroma but does contain fruit juice after all. The juice isn't over done though, like in that pineapple express in the new Tesco range.
    Very nice athumb.. 20190825_180414.jpg

    This is just what the doctor ordered after a couple of hours bbq prepping. Think it came from aldi or lidl.?? (The outlaws are visiting and brought them) Lovely and crisp and clean, stone cold from the fridge.

    I'm no expert...but...I find it helps with temp control for specific yeast types,cold crashing,lagering if you like...a brew fridge is a worthy investment and can be done seriously on the cheap

    Hazy Jane clone (recipe from brewdog diydog). Expensive to make(huge hop bill) but its so close to the original. Yeast is the CML haze, recommended. The haze is definitely present after the yeast has settled out.

    If you want to truly get the dry and crisp low aroma Kolsch then yes you will. But to be fair, to brew anything in the summer (like right now) you need some kind of temp control as any fermentation that doesn’t is ruined right now. Unless it’s a kveik, but that’s for another day.

    My wife was working presenting her cooking company at a food festival today and got talking to this guys who had a stall at the same food festival. They were so nice they dropped her a few beers for me to try.

    Made with a 25-40% of the grist substituted with crumbed left over bread from a local bakery.

    This one is really quite good. A very standard English pale with classic English hop profile. But really good and clean and well made with no oxidation that I can pick out. They are in Reigate and worth a check out if your that way.
