The Brew-History Review 2009-2011, Turned out nice again din’t it!
AG #68 – Trashy Black
My best Black IPA to date, a work-up of the Trashy Blonde recipe.
AG #66 – Centennial Blonde
Just an easy drinking tasty beer trying to emulate Mallinsons Centennial.
AG #64 – Mild Ale II
To brew again with a better yeast than Windsor, Windsor sucked Donkey wanger big time!
AG #63 – London Porterish II
This was a tweaked re-brew, brilliant fresh, tailed off for a few weeks then came back on form as the dark malts settle down and meld together.
AG #60 – Nelson Weizen
To brew again with better fermenter temperature control and a bigger yeast pitch, possibly a different Whitelabs strain.
AG #59 – Schwarz IPA
A bit of a mad experiment that might not be everyones cup of tea, German hops pretty much all the way, in my opinion it worked, a break from the American hops, Das Hopfen alles zusammen.
AG #56 – C.N.S Hops²
Bloody good beer, maybe brew it again with a bit less crystal / cara malts but I know this added to the juicy fruit of the hops.
AG #55 – Imperial Smoked Porter
Bag-ends and odds ‘n sods, tastes great, would add more smoke if done again, Drink fairly fresh while the smoke is still smouldering.
AG #54 – C.C.A.N
Bloody fantastic dry hopped loveliness, Chinook worked its magic.
AG #53 – Kölsch Wit
Totally marvellous Lager-a-like beer with Tettnang hops, a definite re-brew.
AG #52 – Half Wit
Nice beer, just needs the Coriander cutting in Half with some proper Whitelabs Wit yeast.
AG #51 – Double Oat Pale
The beer that made £65 for Charity at the NCB meet at Saltaire Brewery.
AG #46 – Phlegm
Nasty name but nice Belgian strong ale.
AG #45 – Trashy Blonde
A tweak on Sara Carter’s Trashy Blonde recipe, very good beer.
AG #44 – Liquorice & Treacle Stout
Dump or Double the Treacle, this beer have a lovely tight head, very tasty.
AG #41 – London Porterish
Re-brewed with tweaks to try and emulate the Fullers London Porter in ‘London Porterish II’.
AG #39 – Mild Ale
Very easy drinking Mild with fruity English hopping.
AG #38 – Stateside Torpedo IPA
A mad-for it brew that really hit the spot!
AG #37 – Nelson Brucker
Tasty beer but took a while for maturity to play its part.
AG #36 – Imperial Amarillo Wheat
Mad beer, about half a kilo of Amarillo went into it, Brewdog-esque while fresh.
AG #34 – ORBY v1.2
Strong Ales category winner at the 2010 NCB Comp in Skipton. Excellent beer if I do say so myself.
AG #29 – Naked Imperial Stout
I only have one bottle left (17th Dec 2011) its a beer worth waiting for 6-12 months to drink.
AG #26 – Northern Blue
Classy English bitter based on the Coniston Bluebird theme.
AG #25 – May Day
This beer while fresh had a lovely floral note from the Mittlefruh hops.
AG #17 – Over-run by Yanks
Re-brewed with tweaks for the 2010 NCB comp, very nice as it is.
AG #16 – Once Were Warriors
Nelson Sauvin hops, can it be wrong? Of course not…
AG #14 – Black Promise
Black malt, smoothness and very drinkable.
AG #10 – Yorkshire Trappist Red
My first Belgian, it hit the spot.
AG #7 – Munich Blauer Vogel
Úber Bluebird, yet again a Coniston Bluebird kinda-clone.
AG #6 – Otter Dark Stout mkII
My re-brew of an Extract Stout I made, a solid tasty stout.
AG #3 – Fuggles Bitter
I’ll brew this again or something like it, you need a bit of Fuggles in your life from time to time.
Extract #6 – T’old Blotchy Duck
An odd mix that worked, I’m sure an All-Grain recipe would do it justice.
Extract #5 – Sarah Hughes Dark Ruby
Classy, not like the real-deal but very nice for an out-of-book recipe.
Extract #2 – Bramling Cross IPA
This really did have smooth bitterness and Blackcurrant, confusing and brilliant!
Extract #1 – Hop Back Entire Stout
Oh just brew a Hop Back Entire Stout, you’ll love it… Though I’m sure being about 6% helps
Many thanks to the occasional drunken brew-monkey who helped out on a brewday
