Posted in thread: How Long do YOU Ferment in primary? on 07-24-2016 at 10:09 AM

weeks is m...
Posted in thread: The co2 "blanket" on 07-23-2016 at 01:17 PM
It's a bit of myth, have a look at Fick's law. You don't want to be opening your bucket much
after fermentation is over. You can add hops and finings while it's still fermenting ( a couple
of points a...

At a market so bottled or canned...different answer if it's the pub :)Not sure to be honest, I
had a fresh bottle of bengal lancer the other day and it was excellent.

Posted in thread: Saison Substitutions on 07-18-2016 at 12:04 PM

Posted in thread: Going to Edinburgh, Stirling and St. Andrews Scotland any suggestions? on 07-10-2016 at 08:01 PM

scottish ales for two decades, older 60/70/80 etc almost died out along with most of the

Posted in thread: British Golden Ale recipe critique on 07-05-2016 at 10:42 AM
It's a tad strong for my taste in golden ales, although it's not out of style I would use
