No worries, Big Z. Wilko do a range of kits, all are pretty good, by reports, so you'll not go far wrong.

Ok. Because America does it OK, Borgo will do it better. Here's the first look at the 5% Three Cs American IPA. Straight out if the FV, this will bw bottled in about 20 mins. Boom!

Oh, tired of the mess siphoning can cause, I bought a bottling bucket. This is a bucket with a tap and a spring loaded valve on the end of a tube. Add priming sugar to bucket, then siphon beer from fermenting bucket into bottling bucket. Leave to settle. Put the tube in the bottle, push and bottle fills from the bottom. Dead easy, and tidy.

Nope, it was challenger, not Brewer's Gold. Label well, kids.

A tale of two Brews. I'm drinking bottle number 3 of Borgo's 3C whilst wearing a Tshirt with Pinot on it that Kern got me. This is pretty much as cool as you guys can ever dream of. 3C is pretty good. I am proud of it. I prefer it to Watergate. Cras better like Watergate.

In the fermenting bin is 3C Plus One. I was going to call it 4C but 3C was a big enough in joke for me and I dunno if 4C is one better losing biscuit malt and upping the crystal AND swapping a hop. So, 4C isn't a derivation of 3C. And it isn't called 4C. It's callee Afterburner as that's what Chinnyhill suggested after I watched his Chinnyvision of the game.

Edit: it is also a fair bit stronger than expected

Umm. Due to child labour, during dry hopping, about twice as much citra and cascade was added to Afterburner. A very young sample might be available on Saturday, if I bottle wednesday.

Also, I'm trying to get a homebrew friend to try the experimental hops from http://stocksfarm.net/shop/

They invented Jester which is my favourite hop, beating out citra, but they don't sell it to homebrewers the dicks. I think it all goes into the m&s Jester single hop ale which is ace.

The 3C is pretty nice. American ipas use cascade and citra a lot.

They do? Not a combo I'd think works. Huh.

I am looking forward to getting some bines in the ground next year - and we'll have a dehydrator by then for other foodstuffs, so no worries about rot losses.

4kg Maris Otter
500g flaked maize
275g crystal malt
45g black malt
355g sugar

40g brewer's goldto bitter, 20g fuggles to aroma
Intend to dry hope with Goldings.

This is an Old Hooky Clone that I changed some quantities on. And swapped out a hop as i didn't have it.

Cottage brew 2 will be Watergate avain I think, as I know where I am with that.

Cottage brew 2 is sat cooling in the sink at the moment. It is a single hopped ale, Bramling Cross. Malt base was 5kg pale, and then some crystal and black malt because eveeythig is relative really isn't it and I was in a rush so didn't weigh it. 40g hops in at start of boil, 30g at end. Will dry hop with 30g.
Flund my hop bags, which was nice, as it keeps loads of gunk out of the pans.

Going to be a strong one it seems. 1061 OG so if it goes to 1.01 then it is 6.8%
