Hello from Felinfoel, Wales

Post by Paulchef » Wed Jul 08, 2020 4:05 pm

This pandemic saw me return to kit beers after many years in the wilderness :D and an opportunity to step up to AG, I’ve started extending my shed in preparation, as SWMBO is not happy with a fermenting bucket and a crate of bottles conditioning in our kitchen. I’ve been reading and watching many forums and YouTube to educate myself in the dark arts so to speak.
Being partially blind has its set backs as things take 2 to 3 times longer these days especially in the shed extension and if I need to go and get things I have to rely on the kids or SWMBO. I’m thinking on getting an insulated thermos pot with a grain basket to use as an all in one (can’t afford the all singing all dancing ones) Bergland is one I’m thinking of with some modifications. Last Tuesday my local brewery started back brewing ( only 100 yds away) so you could smell the wort being boiled so got another kit on the go :D Enough of my rambling, and happy brewing

And what a brewery it is too. Double Dragon is an all time favourite. Managed a couple in Cardigan Bay area a couple of years ago. Wish I could get it where I live. :cry:

Double Dragon is a rather good pint, back in the day it used to be a lot stronger and I asked the head brewer why they dropped the abv, apparently it was down to the amount of duty on the beer :(

Never tried Double Dragon on draught but I have brewed Graham Wheelers recipe and really enjoyed it.
