I have brewed this twice now and its my favourite beer both commercial and home brewed. I thought this might Just be my taste buds but had it judged at my brew club and got a great score of 41 out of 50 from experienced brewers and judges i can't recommend it highly enough if you like the style you will love it.

Just finished a good brew day, brewing an English Bitter or maybe it s a pale. Did a starter seemed to go well. But my picnic tap on my keg snapped so had to use a pair of plyers to pour. Nice n foamy :D

Think you'll find the others will be like the grainfather app if they are set up correctly.

Hi everyone, just wondering why the likes of BS, Brewfather ect specify a lower strike water volume than the sparge volume? The only one that does not is the Grainfather app.

Very cold brew day in the shed. The fog is down to about 3 feet. ha. :O
