Brewing from grain and hops, or proper home brew out a tin?

 

The amateur stuff, Boycie.

 

Malted grain, mash, sparge, boil, hop addition, crash chill, pitch yeast, ferment, rack, dry hop to secondary, rack, prime, bottle.

 

I don't feel confident with a can opener.

Could be a few fair few years until I make my own, could be 3 months, thanks for the offer of advice.

I think I preferred the 'boilermaker' from Brains, but Barry Island was enjoyable all the same.

Not sure if this should be in the beer or poetry thread, but just came across this classic from Edgar Allan Poe...

 

Fill with mingled cream and amber,
I will drain that glass again.
Such hilarious visions clamber
Through the chamber of my brain —
Quaintest thoughts — queerest fancies
Come to life and fade away;
What care I how time advances?
I am drinking ale today

Yep. Mighty nice it is too. Very herby.

might have to see if I can try that somewhere. I like Sharp's Doombar but not seen this one.

Well, as you may have guessed, this is a lager. Voted best in the world somewhere too (can't remember where). You can get it in our staff shop, and we're putting it on draught in a few different places.

You will have to let us know if anywhere in Derby has it (if you do know) I am guessing the staff shop is only open to staff :lol:

No where currently. Think the closest is probably Coventry.

Waiting for Eddie to chip in here, but I'd go Brooklyn above those. If you ever find yourself in upstate Oregon I love Full Sail and Stones from San Diego. And Hales IPA from Seattle. Just a view :)
