Bit disappointed with the Julius, me and my mate shared it and gave it a 80 out of 100.
All the Treehouse we've had aint been very hoppy.
The balance is beautiful and the carbonation is amazing.
But Putty knocked spots off it
Hm that's interesting, I wonder is it something do do with the fact that it's travelled so far.

What was the neon raptor like ? Their beers are usually right up my street.

Sampled four bottles of a bitter/red ale (complete user upper with loads of crystal/dark malt fermented with 4th generation Ringwood yeast) and after 4 months in the bottle it’s rather nice! A big complex beer at 5.6% :beer1:

First beer in 6 weeks or so, found a bottle of wet hop IPA in my cellar . Brewed on 22 September I think, 100% Vienna, og 1.055, US05 yeast, he home grown centennial hops. Hops have really faded but there's a decent bitterness there at least.

On the Simply Red wine tonight which is pretty good compared to £6.99 bottles. Well worth the money and a good basic house red kit with some oak in there. Waiting for the Wherry to carb up then that will see me through till I start on AG in the new year Whoooot !

Drinking a Siren Caribbean Chocolate Cake, 7.4% stout with cacao and oak. It’s really nice, the chocolate flavour is strong but not overpowering, and it’s not an overly sweet finish. I find a lot of craft stouts to finish really sweet and finishing a whole one can be a bit heavy going, but this is nicely balanced.

First neipa in a while. Bang on style you wouldn't know your drinking beer. Big fruit flavour with that soft mouth feel.

Keep meaning to try brewing wine but I heard mixed reviews about the red wine kits. That they lack body. Any you would recommend to try

I can't speak from experience but this one has similar characteristics to shop bought and brewed full to instructions. Trying the Beaverdale Shiraz 30 bottle next as a comparison.

Tea Sherry. Or, at least, "sherry" is what I call it.

Ingredients/equipment (for 1 demijohn:

20 teabags
Hi Stephen,
That recipe is extremely interesting. Thanks. A question about the tea: have you experimented with different types of tea, and if so what has been the result? Rather than just a "Tetley or Typhoo" type of experimenting, I'm thinking more of "Assam or Pu'er" type of experimenting. Would be good to hear your comments.

Hi there.

So far, I have only used ordinary tea bags. Namely, a UK brand called "Yorkshire tea". That is to say, a typical asamica black tea blend. Which is what most teabags (in the UK) are comprised of.

I am considering using one of the popular fruit teabags for this recipe. Probably blackcurrant.

Batemans XB in the local while dropping pressies off. Couple of tins of Banks Mild and a bottle of McEwans Champion back home. Well, it is Christmas!

Made some stuffed shells while having a HB Belgian Quadrupel (2 of 2). There are actually two trays of the stuff, something like twelve meals, all told. Most of that going into the freezer. It's a favorite of my wife's. Lot of steps.
Do you ever do cauliflower cheese or cheese and onion pie, you seem to be pretty keen on the old bung.
