Chippy! Chippy!...ban him. That's intimidating! I'm offended!
Hit the bermondsey beer mile with @Hoddy tonight for our regular get together. Cloudwater, moor, bbno to name a few. Great night.
My head this morning is telling is was a great night.
Highlights were BBNo Idaho7 & Azzaca, CW IPA and CW DIPA unsurprisingly.
My own coffee and vanilla porter
Enjoying a pint of my Southern Silk IPA:
Now about 3 weeks since it was kegged and it's as clear as a bell and tasting wonderful. The Vermont yeast works so well with the new world hops and really gives a silky, full mouthfeel. I knew Galaxy and Motueka were a great combo and now I'm totally sold on Cashmere as well.
You're really not helping at the moment...
So tonight I have been lucky Enough to get to try two whisky oak barrel aged beers. The first one is by @dan125
This is a Beauty. Not to thin but with a slight crisp edge and no over powering malt character. A slight hint of whisky with a great oaky character. Not a massively hop forward BIPA but a great beer with tons of character and drinkability. And a over 6% it’s dangerous. Another quality beer.
Up second tonight is another whisky oak aged BIPA by @Leon103
This one is Citra laden which I love. There is more whisky character in this beer which blends with the BIPA and dark malts beautifully that ends with a Citra punch at the end. A great beer and makes me want to do some oak aging myself.
You would not believe this has been fermented at 30oC with Kveik. It’s just a amazing.
I think I have been spoilt a bit this evening with these dark beers. And its only September.
Cheers mate. Looking forward to seeing what you do with the oak
Now that sounds lovely.
Leon123/dan125, do you own some old casks or did you use chips? Just curious how you did it
I have Penderyn whiskey barrels. Wood cut into chunks and put in the fv.
Leon was kind enough to send me some of the same chunks, and I did the same - just chucked them into the FV with the wort. I used less than Leon but left them in contact with the beer for longer.
Sounds like two great beers
Saisons. Coming Friday it's guild night again, and the 2-out-of-3 beer is Saison. So trying several saisons to find a couple that are a bit alike.
my latest impy stout 10ish% brewed with kveik. Went back to basics no adjuncts just tons of dark malts yum!
Right now a nice bottle of McEwans Champion. Not homebrew but nice
Is that out of a keg. My kviek stout is struggling to carb up. Still early days it's only in the bottle a few weeks
Belgian Tripel HB. It's just under a week in the bottle and carbonating well. It's lighter in color than it appears. I used Safale T-58 and MJ M-41. The yeasts did really well providing the flavor and aroma. It's 11 1/2% ABV.
This was taken about 7 pm on Sunday, UK time.
Yup is off keg only been in there a fortnight and it's so good. This kveik realy is a miracle yeast, who needs to age big beers?
I've started early today!
The above is a Spiced Pumpkin Ale that I started in November 2017 for Christmas the same year!
I overdid the "cloves" bit of the Spices and it originally tasted like a mouthwash. It had mellowed by February 2018 and now (nearly two years later) it is a superb drink; still with a cloves taste!
The "downsizing" continues as I drink the bottles and sink into oblivion! YAY!
