The Brew-History Review 2009-2011, Turned out nice again din’t it!

AG #68Trashy Black
My best Black IPA to date, a work-up of the Trashy Blonde recipe.
AG #66Centennial Blonde
Just an easy drinking tasty beer trying to emulate Mallinsons Centennial.
AG #64Mild Ale II
To brew again with a better yeast than Windsor, Windsor sucked Donkey wanger big time!
AG #63London 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 #60Nelson Weizen
To brew again with better fermenter temperature control and a bigger yeast pitch, possibly a different Whitelabs strain.
AG #59Schwarz 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 #56C.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 #55Imperial 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 #54C.C.A.N
Bloody fantastic dry hopped loveliness, Chinook worked its magic.
AG #53Kölsch Wit
Totally marvellous Lager-a-like beer with Tettnang hops, a definite re-brew.
AG #52Half Wit
Nice beer, just needs the Coriander cutting in Half with some proper Whitelabs Wit yeast.
AG #51Double Oat Pale
The beer that made £65 for Charity at the NCB meet at Saltaire Brewery.
AG #46Phlegm
Nasty name but nice Belgian strong ale.
AG #45Trashy Blonde
A tweak on Sara Carter’s Trashy Blonde recipe, very good beer.
AG #44Liquorice & Treacle Stout
Dump or Double the Treacle,  this beer have a lovely tight head, very tasty.
AG #41London Porterish
Re-brewed with tweaks to try and emulate the Fullers London Porter in ‘London Porterish II’.
AG #39Mild Ale
Very easy drinking Mild with fruity English hopping.
AG #38Stateside Torpedo IPA
A mad-for it brew that really hit the spot!
AG #37Nelson Brucker
Tasty beer but took a while for maturity to play its part.
AG #36Imperial Amarillo Wheat
Mad beer, about half a kilo of Amarillo went into it, Brewdog-esque while fresh.
AG #34ORBY v1.2
Strong Ales category winner at the 2010 NCB Comp in Skipton. Excellent beer if I do say so myself.
AG #29Naked Imperial Stout
I only have one bottle left (17th Dec 2011) its a beer worth waiting for 6-12 months to drink.
AG #26Northern Blue
Classy English bitter based on the Coniston Bluebird theme.
AG #25May Day
This beer while fresh had a lovely floral note from the Mittlefruh hops.
AG #17Over-run by Yanks
Re-brewed with tweaks for the 2010 NCB comp, very nice as it is.
AG #16Once Were Warriors
Nelson Sauvin hops, can it be wrong? Of course not…
AG #14Black Promise
Black malt, smoothness and very drinkable.
AG #10Yorkshire Trappist Red
My first Belgian, it hit the spot.
AG #7Munich Blauer Vogel
Úber Bluebird, yet again a Coniston Bluebird kinda-clone.
AG #6Otter Dark Stout mkII
My re-brew of an Extract Stout I made, a solid tasty stout.
AG #3Fuggles Bitter
I’ll brew this again or something like it, you need a bit of Fuggles in your life from time to time.
Extract #6T’old Blotchy Duck
An odd mix that worked, I’m sure an All-Grain recipe would do it justice.
Extract #5Sarah Hughes Dark Ruby
Classy, not like the real-deal but very nice for an out-of-book recipe.
Extract #2Bramling Cross IPA
This really did have smooth bitterness and Blackcurrant, confusing and brilliant!
Extract #1Hop 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 🙂

Bicycles in Beijing

My shot is at the top left, the ‘Bicycles in Beijing’ 🙂 I found this image with images.devilfinder.com which I’d never used before but someone had found my blog with it so I gave it a go and did a bit of searching for myself. Its nice to see myself, my photography, in print 🙂 I’d be unsure which agency it was purchased from so here’s the list of places you can buy my shot:
