Christmas Beer

I'm taking the hit so you don't have to. It's time to take an early sample of the BAD Xmas beer. The good news is that there is no sign of the jam we were promised although the beer has some substance. It's not very lively but keeps a small ring of foam as I drink it. There's hints of dried fruit & liquorice swimming in brandy. There's a slightly sour smack & just a taste of nettles. It will go well with Xmas cake or pudding. It's definitely worth collecting your share.

It's symposium time again. The beer is based on Thornbridge Kipling.

Brew Day

We've started. It's a recipe for Thornbridge Kipling. Will it be a triumph or a disaster? Either way we'll treat those two impostors just the same & drink it.

The yeast is pitched. Nature will take its course & we'll be back to drink it.

This is what we are aiming for.

Brewing has started on our next symposium brew. It's based on an Oskar Blues Dales Pale Ale recipe.

I know it's not Christmas but it is time for sparging & for some refreshment. 


Christmas Beer Brewing Day 1

We're hard at work brewing beer. It's tough but someone has to do it.

It's a recipe based on Punk Monk. I can't remember brewing a clearer beer.
