I had a Brew Monkey today, Dave, BroadfordBrewer from THBF… he took a few phone pictures throughout the day… Thanks
We had a few beers, brewed a little, ate some food, and had a few more beers, a jolly good natter along the way made for an enjoyable day :)
Hit our OG near as damn it, couple of litres down on volume tough, Mash efficiency a rather poxy 70%.
I’m hoping to better my last London Porter with more Maltiness and a slightly more assertive hop flavour presence.
