Threw an Evil Dog DIPA in the FV last night - but for the first time used bottled water instead of tap water. (Tesco Ashbeck)

Trying David Heath's 1% IPA recipe, figure it's worth a shot

Dark Rocks All Grain Cafe Espresso Stout, got an extra 1.5 litres in the FV. Instructions said OG 1061 approx. I got 1057, does that sound about right due to the extra 1.5 litres

Mild seems to be the new trend on here, how many kegs have you got Rod. I just pulled the pin and bought another.
Mild is a beer I have only had commercial versions of on a handful of occasions so most of the Mild I drink is home brewed, but I can see why it has the potential to become more popular again, when made properly it is has good flavour/mouth feel and while it can be quite strong (I.e, Sarah Hughes Ruby Mild) it is mostly in the sub 4% range making it great for anyone trying to cut back a bit on how much alcohol they are drinking. It’s just a good all round session beer.

As for what I’m brewing its one gallon of Irish Red Ale (made using a CML kit).

Today I finished bottling my first ever split batch: I've tried two different yeasts with the same beer. So a face-off between Liberty Bell and S-04 (which I haven't used for ages). There was quite a difference in the fermentation; the S-04 went off like a train, and finished a bit sooner. At bottling, the S-04 set looked far clearer. Time will tell.

Your allowed to boil in the house I'd be shot water dripping from the walls and ceiling I can hear the screaming from here lol
Only a 30min boil so wasn't too bad - any longer and I would have had the door open
