Probably Due To Network Congestion

Magic Rock Brewing Co.

Posted on: November 11, 2011

One of Huddersfield’s newest breweries is Magic Rock , Rich is the boss who you might already know of from myBrewerytap, Stu is Head Brewer (Famed for eating Pork Pies on Youtube), recent addition is Scott the Drayman.

I’m not going to waffle on about Magic Rock too much when there is a great article in the Independent by Will Hawkes.
Needless to say, Magic Rock are brewing some stunningly excellent beers with my current personal favourite being ‘Highwire’ a thoroughly hop-forward & dry-hopped mouth coating loveliness of a beer.
The brewery was built and installed by www.malrexfabrication.co.uk who, as you can see from the following photos, have done a very professional job.

Its a bugger of a job making a Glass & Bottle look good with a torch in the kitchen!

Another angle of the copper, through the plastic flaps is the Malt Loft; you can just see the grist case which is above the mash tun downstairs:

Thanks for talking the time out of your day to let me take photos and talk beer ‘n brewing, it was good to hear Stu’s alternate views on yeast. I’m sure I learned a few things from you all 🙂

Photos that make you smile a big shiny shiny smile!
Can’t wait to visit them myself at some point.
p.s. your torch photography was a triumph.

thanks 🙂

I’m intrigued about the views on yeast.

Just different to what I have been taught so far, its very good to hear lots of opinions on different things. And things like yeast behaviour when I would have expected a creamy skim-able yeast you could crop and re-pitch, they have none.
