Beer is good for you

Boddingtons, when it was only sold in the Manchester area, was very good. Their brewery was close by Strangeways prison. 

Robinsons out of Stockport, is still family owned and the last time I was in the UK, it was still a very good ale. Fullers and Youngs in London used to be my favourite tipple. I used to love the Belgian ales but a lot of them got bought out by the big conglomerates. Budvar from Checko is nice too.

That’s funny I was going to mention Boddingtons, and Caffreys too, they’ve both got the same ‘creaminess’ to them, almost as smooth as real cream. 
You’ve got good taste 👍

during the lockdown i bought a complete homebrew kit with bottles off ebay around £80

i'm a noobie to it so i just use whats in the kit.

once i've sussed it i might add spray malt to see what the difference is.

if i try too much experimenting i'll ruin it.

Buy yourself a keg. Massive time saver.

 

Best way to mod it is to use hop pellets. 25g of citra in the fermenter and it tastes amazing, just like that stuff from Oakham ales.

 

I don't actually drink much at all anymore as it gives me anxiety when I have too much, but I always have some in the keg just in case I fancy a couple. It keeps for 6 months in a keg and it costs pence to make.

 

I used to mash my own grains and do full 5 gallon boils, but it's a lot of effort. The kits do the job.  Wine kits are also excellent if you buy decent ones.

I've known many a woman who could drink men under the table. 😂

 

Knew a woman who could drink beer like it's going out of fashion, give her 3 wines and fuck me, completely different person. Think crawling, but from 3 wines FFS! 

Give her three wines and fuck me ,is probably not the best way to put it 😉

My favourite beer when I lived in the Midlands was Bathams!👍

I came home blathered one night, { well, lots of nights if I'm honest} I kept falling over going upstairs and my wife at that time shouted down 'What are you clattering about for at three in the morning? don't get waking them kids up, if you do, I won't happy'!🤫 I said 'I'm just trying to get a barrel of beer upstairs'!🤔 She said 'well leave it until morning and come to bed for gawd's sake'!🥱 I said 'I can't leave it'! She said 'why not'? And I said 'because I've already drunk it you silly cow'!😳🤭

Well even Jesus drank wine & Noah 😇

Yes he did, and every time he got pissed he did his little party trick of walking on water!🤭 Another party trick he did was to turn water into wine, well my party trick was just as clever as his, I had the ability to turn wine into water. Someone I shared digs with in the sixties had the habit of pissing in the sink when he was drunk, so one night I left the cold water tap trickling ever so slightly, and he stood there all night wondering why he was pissing for so long?🤫🤭 Another thing, I always refused to join in a round with my brother and his mates because my brother always drank a double whisky with a Horlicks chaser and by the time his round came up, he was always asleep!🥱

that all stopped after he was crucified. he kept sinking. 😁

The Romans only thought they were helping out when he had nowhere to stay over the bank holiday, at least they put him up over the busy bank holiday, not many would have been that caring!🤭

Beer is usually about 96% water, varies slightly but that's the kind of water content i enjoy drinking, people are always banging on about the alcohol content, so let us remind ourselves of two very good factors to consider when drinking beer with a 96% water content.

 

1. The alcohol keeps the drinking water fresh and drinkable for a long time.

2. I like it.

 

And don't forget that the pasteurisation process kills the germs that also like to live in water, people forget that not everything that lives in water is good for you, people that drank beer are your ancestors because they lived to have sex and not die from Waterborne diseases, smart people if you ask me but then no one will so i just said it to be clear, and beer making predates the Khemtician/Egyption era, loads of interesting things when you start looking into it but none of the naysayers will because they are cry babies.

I brew beer and I don’t pasteurise it … 

It’s a n organic process if there are any bacteria in it you know about it 

As long as the bottles the tub is clean all is well 

I love  the fermentation process smells like freshly baked bread it’s like you’ve given life to something

All the brewing guides that i have been watching, the smell factor gives a very good indication of whether the brewing process is clean, as the smells will be different if harmful bacteria is present as it multiplies, 👍

So starting with clean equipment is an absolute must as you rightly say, i have a brewing kit and i am looking for the time to get round to actually getting on with it, really looking forward to doing it, Thor's hammer i think it's called, it's in the shed at mo but will take a picture of it when i get the time, 6% is the alcohol content so it should store well, wink wink, not, :classic_biggrin:

During the lockdowns I made a lot of beers some totally from scratch to make a gruit … I also malted my own barley which was a very laborious process but cool. This was all in my own house with things out of the kitchen pots pans baking trays etc nothing special 

I made one brew which got infected and I cannot tell you how bad the smell once it was like a wave of smell that took over the house it was incredible.

by the way I have made two lots of Thors hammer now once in 2020 and one last year and I’ve still got some bottles left from last year … everyone likes it 

I’d  recommend getting a brewing belt that you use during the night the last thing you want is a stuck beer it’s very depressing. If you brew in late spring summer you will be ok but in winter you need a brew belt.

Once you’ve brewed it try and leave it alone for at least two months … the longer you leave Thors  hammer the better it improves with age. 
let me know how you get on feel free to msg me
