Ha, so what do you reckon it is?

Yeah, the last one was definitely Belgian, this one Bohemian. Seriously though, just great drops to drink, might limit the pain of being able to walk after a day of  cricket

Knocking off a 4 month keg of Belgian, bit of a treat to drink.

 

Mark, do you dry hop this one?

Yes, 20g of Czech Saaz hop pellets. Top drop done it twice, will be up again soon it’s that good.

Cool, next one in the droid will be a Belly, do you still hop pouch or just dry hop?

Dry hop only. Not sure what you mean by “hop pouch” as I dry hop in a bag so to speak.

Liquid hops that Brewart supplies. Don't worry, it answers my question and I will adjust the amount of dry hops I put in cause I may as well use the hop pouches (hop oil) given I have paid for them and make the dry hops stretch a little bit further

Ha ha. I’d use the liquid brew print hops and 10g of pellets for the dry hop.

Well you enjoy your lagers and this one is certainly top one. You remind me to do it again.

so if I leave the dry hops for 2 days will that make it too hoppy? I mean like overpowering?

Well yep, thinking 2 days is good for dry hopping after that sample. True the proof will be in a few more weeks when I crack a bottle but yeah, the sample today whilst brewing was very promising indeed.

Actually looking forward to this brew I have just done. I can taste the difference between how I was doing hops before (long story, I am sure nobody wants to hear it anymore) to how I used the pouches now, The bitterness in the brew really stands out but I am hoping for a bit more again with dry hopping...actually should be a lot more

 

Fairly handy brew to be drinking, even if it has dropped down from 40 degrees to 23 ( one reason I moved here)

Happy pints, happy brews and happy Beerdroids doing all the work, good for cricket couching.

Ive only had the pirate lager once , just to say I have tried it and because i have generally enjoyed everything else that has come out of that brewery.  Wasnt hard to drink but not my cup of tea as I dont really do Lagers , but might have to give the belgian a run as it is getting good reviews here 😉 .

yeah Pirate Lager is OK but was a good beer to compare some of the lagers I drink. I have tried a few different craft lagers and some are really nice whilst others including P/L are better than the major brand dry beers ( but that is a efiin' low bar. The Belgian is a touch different t other beers I have tried but will put a smile on your face
