Well fellow beer and other fermented beverage lovers, as you can well see, it has been a LOOOOOOOOONG time since the last post on Brewhouse activities. That has been really because there have been no brewhouse-ish activities taking place for a LOOOOOOOOOOOOONG time!
Both experimental lagers have been consumed, commented on, mused over and examined from various angles (at least one of which involved leaning somewhat and staggering to a large degree!) with the final results being that everyone who tasted the experimental brews liked them, with the split between the two styles being about 50/50. Details on those brews WILL be posted eventually.
Nothing, nada, zilch, zip and zero has been fermented for way too long. Things have been hectic to say the least around the brewhouse, including myself changing jobs a number of times, renovations, new furnature and August and most of September being written off for spare time due to the incredible amount of people who are born in those months. I put it down to too much partying and alcohol consumption in the ‘Festive Season’ (nudge nudge wink wink say no more!!!)
So, excuses having been made and bad feelings about having been buying and consuming commercial brews coming back to the surface having finally posted to my sorely neglected website - which has actually been getting some great hit figures considering the lack of updates - and thankyou to all of you who have taken the time to check out these pages - the next few brews shall be as folows….

1 - A wheat beer, possibly a honey/wheat hybrid due to the lovely financee pestering me to knock up another honey beer for her.

2- Another stout - not the Olde Sump Oil super black stout that was raved about last time, but a more civilised and sane brew for ‘normal’ consumption

3- Dark ale of some sort, not sure yet.

Whatever hapens, I really need tyo get off the backside and brew up a storm so I have some of the old VIKING for the Chrismas and New Year season.

I PROMISE I WILL KEEP UPDATES AND POST MORE BREW NOTES THIS TIME. If I don’t, mail me with withering comments containing loads of bad language, poor grammer and insults!
