Bung an Airlock in the Demi-john

If you've got stuff brewing in the cupboard, are you doing it because it gets cheap result, or is a tasty little hobby which can cost more than buying a bottle of plonk?

Sounds a bit like wee. In colour.

Mind you, so does a lot of white wine.

They all sound the same, tinkling into the receptacle.

The sort of wee that one might issue to the porcelain and, on seeing it, think “yeah - I need to drink more water”.

I am delighted with the weissbier. I was told it was OK to drink it young, and rather to my surprise, well, it tastes just like weissbier! nice and light and fruity and clean. Shame it's a summer drink, really. I've had it in the fridge, but still wish it was colder. I am seriously considering ice next time.

That sounds wonderful! You must be pleased?

How much did you brew?

moto748 - 22 Feb 2021 14:34:51 (#626 of 663)

Turned out to be a bigger batch than anything else. I've got, I dunno, 30 plus bottles.

nemo75 - 22 Feb 2021 15:00:52 (#627 of 663)

Did you give them names?

moto748 - 18 Mar 2021 21:49:45 (#628 of 663)

Production is going into overdrive at Moto Breweries. A second polythene bucket has been purchased!

At last! The parsnip stout is a success! It's taken a long time to condition, and next time I shall use a different yeast, but I'm just about there.

djsuggz - 21 Mar 2021 07:52:40 (#630 of 663)

How sweet is it? What else went in by way of ingredients?

moto748 - 23 Mar 2021 22:22:03 (#631 of 663)

Fairly sweet, I will reduce the sugar a bit next time. But there was only just over 300 g of sugar, and about the same of malt extract, to 1.5 kg of parsnips.

The hound appreciates a stout.

Nice to see this thread chugging along. I think I might still have something fermenting in the garage.

djsuggz - 27 Mar 2021 10:50:47 (#634 of 663)

I just bottled up a light red wine (made from grape juice and tea).

Will make some fruity lager for my Mrs, soon.

Oatmeal stout: torch behind reveals lovely ruby colour.

Oooh. Looks great!

djsuggz - 27 Apr 2021 19:21:18 (#637 of 663)

That looks glorious!

moto748 - 27 Apr 2021 19:23:44 (#638 of 663)

Very pleasing, but only a few bottles left; it was only a small batch. Will definitely make some more.

moto748 - 11 May 2021 16:20:09 (#639 of 663)

Sweet cherry saison now bottled; a very fetching pink colour, will be interested to see if it clears.

moto748 - 19 May 2021 21:50:23 (#640 of 663)

I just have my first taste of it. Really pleased with it, and sure it will improve.
