Nelson Saison top little midstrength beer! Unfortunately the keg just ran out! It interesting as the beer matured the hops faded and belle saison came to the party!!!

Yeah, I like mucking about with labels, but with kegging these days it doesn't leave enough bottles to worry about.

I see a fully vinyl wraped keg in your future

Beachey do you like what rye adds to a brew, the brew I did today is my first time using it?

I do, very much.
First used years ago ad I gave a bottle to the bloke organising grain buys for us.
He liked it so much it went into the first beer her brewed for the brewery he opened and has been a staple ever since.

It's an amazing grain and brings a little something special to a beer.

First try of the Black Rock Miners Stout with a kilo of Stout Booster, 500gm LDME US-4, Yeast Nutrient.

It is very nice for only 4 days in the keg, rich, dark, smooth with roasted malt flavours, nothing like Coopers Stout but a pleasant change, a lot of coffee notes & a nice bitter finish.

It would be great to age but as you can see one of my neighbours like it too.  {sad face}

Amber Saison.  I never posted the recipe.  Just a kit 'n' kilo (really 1.5 kilo): Coopers Canadian Blonde + Mangrove Jacks Amber Liquid Malt Extract.  Plus Lallemand Farmhouse yeast.

Farmhouse is a different type of beer.  Hay bale aroma with a little spice.

Similar flavour.  Pleasant but different.  Some would not like it.  But I do.  Slight watery after-taste.  Mild bitterness.

Finally carbed-up and nice and clear - a Duvel clone. The residual sweetness seems to have gone too 🤔

I kegged it on 11/09. A long time in the keg seems to help these “mid-strength” (8.5%) brews…

Pouring well, must mean I’m close to the end 😩

Looks good Stquinta, it's good to see you drinking responsibly, mid-strength is better than those high ABV beers. Untitled-1.jpg.f760f92f68a59d11f471c6d1dc452832.jpg

A sneaky Stout out of the tap, 5 days in the keg & it is getting better, not as bitter as yesterday's sample & it is rounding off nicely.

I would never want to age this & why would I want to, it tastes just fine, I did get to bottle 6 x 660ml bottles so I will work on keeping those for a while, anyway I have another batch of this to make so all is good. 

It amazes me why I didn't get in to kegging years ago because you can't start drinking brew that has been bottled for 5 days.

The funny thing is I have a Stout Tap as you can see & I forgot to connect it up.
