  • 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

    How would you know maris otter wouldn't be characterful enough unless you tried it first as a

    Would you believe am using Safale 05 for the first time ever?About 7 years and 100 batches or
    so and I have somehow avoided it thinking it was just too much of a classic to be worth messing
    with. Mayb...

    Is that the Graham Wheeler book? I think I have that somewhere.He knows his stuff. Am sure

    Hops. ( they were liek $5 bucks additional to my bulk grain order). I would like to use them as

    winter. Tastes r...
