It’s been a while since the last blog post, so thought I’d just write a short update. I currently have three beers in fermenting vessels (the oak-aged English Strong Ale, the Imperial IPA and the Imperial Stout), which I will be transferring to kegs this week. We are currently doing some fixing on our brew kettle, which includes inserting a drainage port at the bottom of the kettle and a thorough cleaning of the heating element. We’ve had some trouble with ashy/charcoal flavours in our recent beers, which I assume was caused by a quite thick layer of burnt trub on our heating element. Hopefully our next batches will be better! Will try to post some tasting notes on the recent homebrews as soon as possible.
