English Pub Draught

Recommended Posts

Gong to drink this over the next fortnight, I think five longnecks and a keg which are at 12 weeks now. These are the ones with the extra X5 in them to bring them up to the ol' 5.5% alchemahol volume so they should have had some time to settle down

Ah no, had one in the group I took up on the weekend, was the one I didn't drink, just opened it then thinking it was an Aussie Pilsner thinking "WTF?" as the flavours were all wrong and then I thought, Eng Pub Draught with the extra kick to it. Getting the idea when you mess with the alcohol amount you need to let it sit a fair while

It is a queer feeling when your brain thinks it’s drinking this and expecting a particular taste to match and ends up with something completely different.

Yeah, you brain starts going " is it infected, why this bottle, why is that taste familiar" it took me a minute to work out that the taste I was getting was the stronger alcohol taste and I put 2 and 2 together

Absolutely smashing a keg of this tonight as this is the only thing I have to relieve the pain from a day of cricket. To be honest, I think the extra X5 was not needed and probably didn't do anything great but lesson learned. Still, one of those very handy, cheap beers that takes a few wickets, keeps the runs tight but can no longer come off the long run, much like myself :)

Message left 5 hours ago, that’s about 1am. No wonder the “long run” is off the attack 🎊.For me even the under arm would be out of the question. 😀🏏🏏

Your right in this being a top drop, one in my repeated list and would agree the extra E5 was probably not needed. Glad your enjoying it.🍺

I just knew I couldn’t. Cracked the 10l keg just now, wow this is a top drop. (Sorry my London’s own finished but hey, can’t fill full kegs. With 3 droids I just have to do it, someone has  too?

I think this is such an underrated beer (not by us). No hops, a few ingredients but it bats above it's weight like a short balding coke dealer with an absolute hottie draped on him, mines just been put in the droid a couple of days, this time it'll go into bottles for my mid week madness

Niiiice gents, adding this one to 'the list' 😇

 

It is like $17 for 10 litres of beer, ridiculous value. There are other beers I'd drink in front of this but this will always be on the re order

There's always a place in my home for decent cheap beer, otherwise I tear through the premium stocks too quickly 😇

I know mentioned before but he’ll at $0.65 a 375ml stubbie (not crafty 330ml ones) it’s top drinking at a top price. Today’s flyer in the letterbox, VB 24 slab (375ml) $50!!!, Corona slab (355ml) $52!!! and Peronist Nastro Azzurro (330ml & and believed brewed under licence in Aust.) $48.

Guess what I’ll be drinking and I don’t have to go out and get it.🍺🍺🍺🍺🍻

Drinking one of these now, 4 weeks in ( just a taster), even at this stage and it needs a bit more time has shop beers covered.

Cannot wait to start brewing again after my holiday . This is one of the first to try 🙂

Are you putting one on before you go, be ready when you get back.

No was just going to leave it , just incase something silly happens like we loose power or something like that . Anything possible through cyclone season lol. The thought of doing it and having it in storage mode when I got home was tempting though 🙂

I’d do it. You know you want to. 😯 If you loose power 1) fermentation continues and it takes a while to warm up in the droid 2) when the power comes back on the unit restores to original settings as if nothing has happened. I can vouch for this when a typical power cut happened here in Adelaide.

You can use a regular bleach (un-scented) at 4ml/litre for about 20 minutes then rinse and use straight away. Note, no scent like lemon or lavender bleach. Regular plain bleach, White King regular is suitable.

A hard working droid means brew, brew, brew. My three have never had more than an hours rest. Your WA’s top end brewer, a claim  we can’t have, top stuff.

Had a few of these last night, as I am playing finals in cricket, and I have these in bottles, it helps me keep track of how much I'm drinking. ice solid draught at 3 months
