    ESB Recipe - Thoughts?

    Hi all, Well, usually I do lagers but I do like to have a keg of ale on hand, and I've just about finished my current one - a Cascade / Amarillo pale ale. I thought I might like to have a British bitter on for a change. I adore Fullers ESB so thought I'd try for something similar. All malts...

    Football (Soccer) World Cup, South Africa 2010

    Totally off topic I know, but watching the SWC opening concert on BBC and it really brought a tear to my eye - how I wish I was back home to feel the vibe of the biggest sporting event in the world being held in my beautiful home country. To think that I was born into a society that...

    Slow ferment with WLP800 / Wyeast 2001 (Pilsner Urquell)

    I've used this yeast for four batches of lager now, twice from a starter and twice from a repitch (used both Wyeast 2001 and WLP800, although these are supposed to be analogous. Every time I've noticed that it takes about 4 full weeks in primary to ferment out. My latest repitched bo pils...

    Sam Adams / Vienna Lager recipe for critique

    Hi all, I absolutely love Samuel Adams Boston Lager. For those who have not had it before, is a wonderful, malty, rich beer with incredible depth flavour and balance, and a beautiful colour. It is one of my all-time favourite beers. So, I am trying to create something similar, and I would...

    Westvleteren Trip 2009!

    Hi all, I just felt I had to share this someone who might actually appreciate the enormity of the news: I have just got off the phone with a monk at the Abbey of St Sixtus in Westvleteren, Belgium. I had to sit on the phone for 2 hours before I could get through, but I did eventually. I...

    Advice needed for APA

    Adjusting (increasing) bitterness after primary fermentation

    OK, please bear with me, this is a bit of a read. I recently brewed a belgian blonde ale, a recipe I've been trying to perfect since I started brewing. It's a simple recipe, relying on the belgian yeast strain I chose for the esters and phenolics characteristic of belgian ales. It was meant as a...

    Overshot the ABV / attenuated too far

    Well, today I racked my belgian blonde it into the secondary (better bottle) after 5 days in the primary. I am going away on holiday on tuesday for two months, so I will leave the carboy in the fridge while I am gone to let it clarify and cold-condition, hopefully resulting in crystal clear...

    Adjusting bitterness post-boil

    Hi all I did my second all-grain yesterday, with new kit I bought - a 28L cooler box MLT, with the integral copper manifold thingy as I’m tired of brewing in a bag. I made a Belgian blonde, so just European pilsener malt, Demerara sugar and saaz. I aimed for about 65% efficiency, which...

    Brewferm Tarwebier Kit (Belgian Witbier)

    Hi all I bought a brewferm kit as my first brew, just finished making the wort a few moments ago. It comes as a tin of malt extract and a little sachet of dry yeast, so I put the malt extract in a bain marie on the stove to liquify, and I made some invert sugar on the stove top. I used...

    Advice on brewing a Belgian blonde ale please.

    Hi there, I’m new to brewing, so I have a few questions about this if anyone could be so good as to fill me in? I really want to brew a Belgian blonde ale, something like leffe blonde, la trappe blonde, grimbergen blonde, etc, but living in the UK I have yet to find a kit that offers this...
