You'll find somewhere. Its just a bucket. I keep mine in the press under the stairs.

I reckon if the ales not great it'll be much more obvious than the stout.

You better get drinking though, you're going to need enough bottles to do you for 20L of beer. Image

Time to stop kicking the tyres and actually make a move on brewing. Going to order that kit and get moving.


They've also gotten in some Kona Koko Brown Ale into drinkstore btw. Has more of a cola flavour to it than I remember, almost coffee like.
Works really served cold.

Excellent. That means it should be around again. Loved that last summer.

Mikkeler - I beat you

An American style IPA apparently. Bit flat on fizz and very strong tasting. The least favourite of anything I've tasted of theirs.

The flying dog labels are the best

Tempted to use this next time I make a batch http://www.beerlabelizer.com/

It would be an effort sticking them on but worth it I reckon, my very own schraderbrau

Reckon I'll wait till I do a few AG batches and I'm happy with them before I start labelling them. For now I just scribble something on the cap like APA or IPA or whatever.

I'm going through a serious Belgian phase at the moment and La Chouffe is top of the charts these days. It is a beautiful tasting beer
