Re: Robertson's Old Fart

Aha! Now you could be on to something here. Having a search under Merriman's, they acquired the rights to brew Old Fart from Robinwood Brewers & Vintners, who were active between 88 - 93, so the right era. Robinson were also contracted to brew it, though this was for Merriman's so 94 onwards which i...

Re: not using sugar in wine making

Not unless you use grapes. Most UK fruit does not contain enough natural sugar or juice so country wine have water and sugar added. As I said above, so much fruit would be needed to get the sugar level up, it would affect (ruin?) the flavour. I'm still wondering if an experiment was carried out by ...

Robertson's Old Fart

When I was about 18 (ahem), I used to occasionally drink in the New Inn, Littlehampton, and I remember they had a beer called 'Old Fart' by Robertson's Brewery (not to be confused with Robinson's). Being a guest beer, it was only there for a short time. I found out one night where it got its name fr...

Men wearing ties ! Aah yes I remember it well :D
I wonder if anywhere in Ireland still serves a pint of 'plain', with the double pour?

I very much doubt the barperson pouring it would be wearing a tie these days, regardless of gender!

Re: How Much Roasted Barley?

I finally got round to brewing this a couple of days ago, it's bubbling away and smelling pretty good! I took out the 30 minute Northdown additon and I only had 30g of Challenger left (must have been sloppy with my record keeping!) which took the bitterness down to 45 IBUs. I'm unconvinved I could t...
