Festive beer time, so a Winter Warmer seemed A Plan. With ginger and spices, this one is for sipping on a cold night.
I was due to brew semi-regular beer Black Otter BIPA, but had a last-minute offer of some green hops from a garden near Abberton Reservoir.
A slightly lower rating this year, and the single cask is off to South Benfleet Social Club.
A re-brew of last year’s Amarazaka American Pale Ale, hopped with Amarillo and Azacca hops, but with a slightly different schedule for the hopping and dry hopping.
This one is smokey. And rather delish. 5.4%abv. Bottle only.
Marmalade and orange peel in the boil. Cask and bottles.
A Double Dry Hopped Triple IPA. Hops in question are of the singular variety and that variety is Mosaic.
Bottles and casks in late September 2018.
I brewed this a few months ago, but didn’t get much of it to drink myself, so that seemed good enough reason to brew it again.
A brown porter with Weyermann Rauch Malt added to the grain bill, giving a gentle smoked dimension to the beer.
