  • Edinburgh
  • All Maris Otter Pale Ale

    Barleywine for Christmas
  • Kit bitter to use it up
  • First AG in bottle 1st Feb 09 - simple, good, old fashioned bottled bitter to test out the cooler and work out the AG process. Just base malt, crystal malt and East Kent Goldings.

    Strong Ale - Second AG - a simple bitter with an accidentally far better efficiency than planned, so morphed into strong ale territory. Practice makes perfect I suppose...
    Bottled 12th Feb
  • Male
  • Single

    Look up something like Timothy Taylor's Landlord as a guide. These things tend to be very

    I'll go on record as saying it'll be a Christmas treat. My money is on it working out very well

    Found a couple of bottles of a batch from some 6 (I think) years ago that I gave my dad.If that
    is what oxidation and autolysis taste like, not bad ;)So far as I can guess will have been a
    simplish pa...

    How would you know maris otter wouldn't be characterful enough unless you tried it first as a
    straight smash with no roasting?I'd bet you'd be very pleasantly surprised.

    Well this time it is off like a shot!Good rocky head in 24 hours from pitching. Seems a proper
    top fermenter which I was surprised by.I don't have any means to cold crash but since I intend
    to bottle ...

    This old pair of chinos has seen its share of both stains and strains.But nope, never tried any

    so and I have somehow avoided it thinking it was just too much of a classic to be worth messing
    with. Mayb...
