What Are You Drinking in 2022?


Recommended Posts

Centennial pale ale. Made this with WY1272 American Ale which I resurrected after 18 months of not using. This was my go to yeast before Verdant came along. Not super clean like US05 or notty etc. Has some yeast character with a pleasant nutty taste. Doesn't make the hops pop like Verdant but makes a very nice beer. Its got me thinking of trying a pale ale with a 750ml starter each of Verdant and WY1272. I think that might make something truly awesome.

And, I'm actually thinking that instead of 100g of Sour Grapes they've maybe mistakenly put in 100g of Shepherds Delight - a kind of ultra dark crystal malt

Yes, looks like caraaroma in there and the taste descriptors fit too (same as shepherds and special b)

I thought I ought have a port-er...

See what I did there? 🤪

Brewed this one for my daughter who came visiting frrom Brissy for a couple of weeks...  been over three years since we last had a beer together!   Not a bad brew  - we managed to demolish half a batch of this one,  quarter batch of a pale ale I also had on hand, the last few bottles of an English bitter and quite a few bottles of a golden ale I also had in stock.  Oh, and then there was the feijoa cider and red wine!  I think she has either a drinking problem or was just making up for the last three years! 🤣

This is a partial mash beer  - Gladfield malts and 1.5kg LME paired up with Bramling Cross and Sticklebract hops:

Yes, it's a good brew, Nice simple K&K with some Carapils and Waimea hops.

Will move on to some real ale next, which is better, but the sun has gone..

Days are getting longer..

Definitely recommend it in the brewing arsenal. It’s basically a Pilsner with half the bitterness. Balance is the trick/key here. Malty sweetness balanced by dryness rather than bitterness. Weinstephaner have a great example
