Homebrew Club at the micropub was, once again, superb. I learnt a lot and had good chats with people. All good.

I am making some at the moment, initial tastes suggest something between paraffin and liquid hops.

Plumbing for mash tun is complete. PFTE tape helped stop leaks at the joins. Now just need to insulate it. And think about Mk2. This now means I can mash twice as many litres at a time as before, and now I need to make my boiler to boil it all.

I made a batch of homebrew the other week, the following means it tastes a bit strong:
1) Woodforde wherry kit tins x2, dilute to 40 pints - I do 1xtin diluted to 3 litres
2) Normal hop levels 10g/10 pints - I do 75g/3 litres of cascade hop pellets straight into the rxn vessel

currently it is a bit like a hoppy barley wine.

Tonight, I took 2026g Maris Otter Pale Malt and 100g crystal malt and stuffed it into 7.2 litres of water. It mashed at 65 for an hour, then went through The Buckets. A sparge of 5 litres at 80 was left for 15 mins whilst the other wort went on to boil. 30g of Brewer's Gold hops and 25g Chinook wrnt in at the start of the boil. Yes, this could be very bitter. But, worry not. 5 mins from end of boil, I stuck 25g Brambling Cross in ( and two pinches irish moss). Chilled using chiller and diluted it down using tap water from 1058 to 1044 which gave 2 gallons. In 5 days, I will lob 1.3kg frozen blackberries in which ahoild sweeten it a bit and take thw esge from the chinook and brewer's gold hops. And dry hop with 50g Brambling Cross for country hedgerow aroma. From weighing grain to pitching yeast was 4 hours; my bucketinnabucket is driving efficiencies.

Soaked grain in hot water for an hour then drained and began to boil the liquid. Soaked it again for fifteen minutes and added that liquid to the pan and boiled it all for an hour, adding hops to make it taste bitter and something to help make it clearer.

If you use the nornal abv calculation, this is 4.3℅. however, i chucked 1kg blackberriea in hakf way through, so the added sugar meabs it might be more.

Tasting notes: bitter, with a blackberry aftertaste. Blackberry taste not overwhelming.

Mixed results after testing 3 bottles. Flavours are good, blackberry taste is strong and bitterness comes through well. Few, if any, off flavours. I changed carbonatuon protocol, though. I decanted the contents of the fermentation tub through a sterilsed sieve, and added 85g brewing sugar to it. Then siphoned into plastic bottles. Very little fizx after two weeks so suspect a) sugar not dissolved,b) no yeast made it through or c) bottle screw caps on warped thread so gas escapes.

Overall, pleased with this new info. Next time bottle in glass bottles with metal caps, not thrice dishwashed plastic bottles.

Citra SMaSH going on tonight, with golden promise malt.

True, but it needs a little sparkle, good morning TV you're looking so healthy. We all say "don't want to be alone". We wear the same clothes 'cause we feel the same. We kiss with dry lips when we say goodnightoh! End of a century, oh, it's nothing special but a bit of head would be nice,i guess. From your mum.

Cras is right, though. And, it should be warm.

It was £9, in a bottle, and over 12%. Not a session beer by any stretch.

Ha, I can drink more beer than you!

That's why I'm very popular.

Neverdishwashed plastic bottles. Buy cheap water, empty it down the sink immediately before filling, recycle after drinking. You're a bit lucky you've only had flat beer.

Dishwash, bottlebrush clean, dishwash, sterilising tablet, rinse, bottle. Necks are warped. After 10 years, my sterile technique game is still strong.

Anyway, buckets in action! Decided to do 5% crystal malt in this with golden promise.
