I put down a "Medieval Amber Ale" and a Ginger Beer yesterday. The Amber recipe was from a friend and is supposed to be about 9% !!!!! It has got French Oak chips and Cammomille tea as well as hops and honey. it should be an interesting brew, if it is any good I will be putting it into next year's H/B Comp :)

Ginger beer will be more like 4.5 - 5% and is J and I's standard drink these days. Based on a kit but with extra goodies in it :) (Buderim Ginger refresher cordial Yum Yum Yum)

So, has anyone else got anything down ath the mo?
Cheers
Axl :cheers:

I used to take gravity readings once upon a time, but now I just gauge the alcohol content by how quickly I get pissed! Ha Ha

Right, I've kegged and Bottled the Yak. It was quite interesting getting it out of the fermentor with that many hops t block the outlet. It is a seriously hopped brew.

Next, I dont usually use sugar and I dont usually brew lagers, but I had these ingredients in the cupboard for a while and figured I'd better use them.

Golden Harvest

1 x Can of Cascade Golden Harvest
1kg of Coopers BE2
500g of Coopers LDM
The zest of 1 Lime @ 10 mins
15g of Amarillo Hops @ 5 mins
