    Anyway, my company has a WiFi AP that only works with company laptops but not with company phones.

    I'm in the basement of a hospital so no phone signal and NHS free WiFi is so slow it's like 56k dial up...

    All I want is a service stopped and restarted. Give me access and I'll do it myself. It's been 4 working days now.

    Have you tried turning it off and on again?

    I guess. I'm forgetting that editing means that programs aren't linear!

    I wondered how long they were given to make the beers. Some of the high percentage ones, like the barley wines, would need conditioning for a good few months to be at their best.

    I'm conditioning my barley wine for a year at least!

    I'm just concentrating on a core range trying to be consistent. And also brewing a few seasonal specials.

    Sounds like you are going Pro?

    I do love my S beers.

    Saisons, Stouts and Sours.

    Obviously Sours can be a problem as it can contaminate the FV's for future brews. I could use a specific bucket for it though.

    I've got a Barley Wine at my Mum's garage that will sit there for a year. There will be a Imp Stout via reiterated mash that will join it.

    Also looking at a Stingo (Yorkshire and all that) to see how it goes.

    Have you rebrewed any recipes to see if you get similar results?

    Ha! No.

    Do you know how many BJCB classifications there are? Gotta brew them all...

    Joking aside, It's either that I'm getting better at the physical process of mashing, boiling and fermenting as I learn or my various methods of measuring OG and SG are off.

    I am very temped to rebrew the Flanders Red Ale I've had in bottles for 500 days plus in a keg to see if if gets better but life may be too short.

    I'd still love to buy one. 😆

    Did anyone watch that Beer Masters series that is on Amazon? Kind of passed me by but a link in the recent CAMRA magazine made me serch for it.

    Kind of starts off with a good premise but rapidly goes downhill (Stella Artois on the Final?!?)

    And, James Blunt, of course...

    Anyway. While binge watching it on Sunday I made my first Saison. Supposed to be 6.6% but looking like 7.1% at the moment. Not sure what's happening as I update the Brewfather software with my Brewhouse and Mash efficiency regularly but keep making beers with higher ABV's than the recipe.

    Not that I'm too fussed.
