I also brewed today. It was supposed to be yesterday, but Storm Eunice had other ideas: she decided I ought to reroof my brewshed instead. So delayed my brew to today.

A Helles Exportbier for a forthcoming inter club competition. All good except I overshot my target OG and had to liquor back to get target OG nearer the right number. All tucked up safely in the fermenter 👍

I know, but a) weather is a bit sh*t for grass cutting and b) I have an aversion to cutting the grass before March (even prefer not to start before April, but that is tough!) c) I’d rather be making beer
