    Raspberry and cherry out of the freezer aisle. It’s based on a recipe I found from the states. The base beer before souring is roughly a dark Belgium ale.

    That actually sounds delicious, along the lines of a Rodenbach Charatere Rouge?

    I’ve had some rodenbach beers but not that one so not sure. Added the fruit a few hours ago...I may have created a monster! It’s gone a bit mad.

    Oh and fwiw the inspiration for the recipe is here https://beerandbrewing.com/sixth-street-sour-recipe/
    I got the probiotics in an end of line sale for 2 quid but they turned out to be viable. Fruit was from the Aldi freezer dept. So I’ve not spent much over my grain and yeast given the hops were freeish.

    OK so it's more of an oud bruin than a flanders red, it sounds delicious though. Keep us updated cos I might give this one a try soon :thumba:

    We’ll see what happens. It wasn’t showing any signs of slowing down this morning but once it’s settled I’ll have a taste when I do the gravity check.

    I love the 17 cm height marker on your toilet cistern.
    Proper health and safety that is!

    Brewing a citrus summer ale today. Basically Greg Hughes summer ale but I've swapped the hops for centennial and am using Imperial A20 citrus yeast.

    That sounds great. I've done it a few times and find it a bit one dimensional...I'd save some hops and dry hop too.

    Have no centennial left but I do have some lemon drop in the freezer so may dry hop with that, will taste after initial fermentation and then decide.

    Make Your Own Drinks IPA kit. Doing it with dextrose, which gauls me because I know I could do a mash that would work out cheaper, but it's all for the sake of science. I was going to short brew to 20 litres but have taken a hydrometer reading and it's 1.050 and that'll come in at 6.5%, not the 4.7% they're claiming. The B&M kit I did came in gone 7% in the split I brewed with dextrose. I'm going the full 23 litres.

    It was 1.025 last night. Tasted ok but a bit one dimensional maybe down partly to using my own hops of unknown AA values.
    Its still fermenting and the recipe fg was 1.022 I think. No signs of infection so it could end up quite dry. We'll see I guess.

    Got a Boundary Export Stout (from the Camra homebrew book) on last night, OG sample tasted amazing.
    Missed OG by a couple of points at 1.068, and perhaps pitched a bit warm (was getting late), but it's started bubbling today so hopefully all will be good :cheers3:

    There is a monsoon outside! So an impromptu all grain brew day.

    20L of Bavarian wheat beer.

    50/50 Crisp Europils/Crisp Wheat malt.
    Saaz for bittering and Hallertau Mittelfruh for flavour/aroma.
    Fermenting with Mangrove Jack's M20 Bavarian Wheat.

    Hopefully the sun will return for when it is kegged!
