Pete Brown's book took an age to get published, personally I would never buy with a crowdfunder again. Lulu is a better bet.

Hi All ,
Are any members in the Gloucester area ? , as I'd be keen to take a look at any pictures of the Stroud Brewery Brewing Book that's in the archives there , it's from the mid 1920's .
I'll post the catalogue reference etc and any recipies that I convert ( with credits)
Hope that someone can help ,
Cheers ,
Edd

There’s a local brewery recreated State bitter from the head brewers book, and a few from Whitwell&Marks in Kendal.
My granny worked in various bars around Carlisle, there were two full bottles of State bitter and Brown in her cabinet for years. I went to have a look on my ‘Aunty’s annual Christmas’ visit, and my aunt had thrown them out. Gutted!

Hi lord president ,
Aah , thanks for reminding me about Whitwell Mark of Kendal .
I've been meaning to do a proper look at their beers ( had the photographs of the records for a while) , they're from the 1930's ,
I'll pop one up as soon as I've finished looking at the Truman's Burton records from 1914 ,
Cheers
Edd

Hi All ,
Just finished the Whitwell Mark recipies for the book !! , I'll be popping a 5d Mild from the 1930's up sometime soon ,
Pre brewing warning though; you'll need two different yeast strains for ANY Whitwell Mark beers , a blend of Yorkshire Square, and Burton on Trent !!.
Cheers
