I tried that the other day they had them for sale for
$6 a bottle at New World.
I found it a little too fruity. Was very similar to the Macs Sassy Red. Nice but any more than 1 bottle would be sickly.

Fair Enough K-Trips its not for everybody .
Tried my new brew last night.....It is AMAZING!!!, still a wee way togo on carbing up and but taste is well.. epic lol.
It still needs to clear up a bit, and its quite dark!, I'm assumethats from the LME and the fact is made it very much amber LME and Light DME instead of the other way round... I'm going to do it again, except using all DME and I'm thinking about my different Hops additions now, i used nugget and Cascade last time.

this time I'm thinking Nugget and Willamette?

hope fully the pics show up.

Supposedly its john palmers pale ale, from his book, the LHBS didnt have the right ingredients... so swapped basically the amber and Light over.
Should look better after another week or two of clearing up.
1 can Amber LME
1 kg Light DME
Nugget Hops and Cascde hops.
2 week ferm, and dryhopped too, tastes amazing, slightly sweet taste, with nice bitterness.

its dark because of the amount of amber I put in, and its LME which darkens it up further. Gonna do a variation on this, make it either black, with Dark DME or Light with Late additions of Amber, and less of it.

Probably more of an American Amber Ale than an American Pale Ale.

Getting prepped up for the big brew day on the 11th. Just hope this weather holds off.

HA! Yeah, the Mrs. is from up that way, so I got to deal with her on Friday night after a few drinks, lol. So I'll jump on the wagon

No Clubs down here as far as I'm aware, would love to start one up, do some tastings brew nights etc. (Basically just a piss up, lol).
