In the keg after 12 day fermention, replaced with good old Birra Italiano.

In flo after long week, looking forward to tomorrow. 10 weeks secondary, make a couple of pizzas, drink 3 pints without it touching the sides, hopefully not to much of a hangover so I'm not the only person not there on my street for the Anzac Parade for the diggers on our street, seeing they can't have a proper march.

If i was to be critical, it would be that I only put 15gms dry hopped this one.

 

That is about it though, for years I drank lagers that I paid good money for and this is half the price...and more enjoyable

Just snuck a Grolsch bottle full of this at 4 weeks. The more I drink these beers, dry hopped between 4-6 weeks, the more i think that is a lagers time. Just very, very good drinking

So, I have alternated between this and my brew...and lets just say, if this was a Friday night, with no distractions (like work), this would get messy and now that everything is getting opened up again, there would be a fair chance of a cafe burger to sort the belly and head out the next day.

I mean, there is no comparison between the beer I drank for years, happily, that people mocked me as elitist for, and these two. If they were 7 bucks a pint, I'd be OK with it. As I am a lager/pilsner drinker, there are 5-6 I could easily put in rotation and be happy, guessing the same for Pale Ales/ales?

Before the droid I couldn’t homebrew Lager or Pilsner due to not being able to control the lower fermentation temperatures with and consistent accuracy, ales however at 18C we’re a different story and theses I used to drink commercially. Being generally an ale drinker and now being able to brew the lagers and Pilsner I have the best of both worlds and have opened up a whole new brewing experience.

Such a good brew, nearly five weeks in and it just stands out against the other beer ( wheat beer, which I really like tbh). Our holiday this winter will now be at K.I. as we can't travel anywhere, will take a dozen longies half Birra, Half Belgian over there to help me deal with my children

So have just put my KI trip Belgian on so it'll be at 5-6 weeks when I drink it. Surprisingly, the correct ingredients have gone in this time

11 weeks in and it is still a very, very nice lager. I have found some of the lagers drink better early at 4-6 weeks, some at 8-9 weeks but this...every week it is still an absolute cracker. Really should have taken a picture, sure the phone is around but 100% can't be arsed

This is the second pint...first one went down as quickly as they did when I worked summers in Alice Springs :)

I spent a couple of summers working in Alice too.

I know that problem.

I’m with you there. Honestly just didn’t know a glass could add just a bit more to some brews. Time to put another Belgian in the droid
