I still have one more can of Lyle's Golden Syrup meant for this. I've also been looking into a

I'll check t...

I have this love for hot peppers and figured I ought to try an Asian type beer using Thai
chilis. Lemongrass certainly comes to mind as did rice DME.I'm not looking for hops that are
citrusy or dank, ...

I'll have to check that out for future brews as I like to explore what I'm unfamiliar with from

Another vote for Samuel Smith's IPA as well as the Twisted Thistle!However I feel that Old
