Today I continue my mission to rid myself of some leftover brewing ingredients, before they go off. The second recipe in this quest is a common English bitter – and unlike my Überschuss European Ale, this one is pretty much by-the-book.
The brew session went without hiccup. Hit of OG right on, colour looks good, smells good too. Despite the 30C temps, I managed to re-do all of the hangers in my garage during the boil – AKA multitasking! It’ll be a few weeks until we know the real story (about the beer; the garage is fine), but I have high hopes.
No pictures from today’s brew session – but you will find the recipe below the fold.
