Rookie,
I see that you have left 3 caps off to capture Wild Yeast (or other airborne infections). :D :D #-o

What's the recipe, please?
Without patience, life becomes difficult and the sooner it's finished, the better.

I always prepare 2-3 more bottles than I expect to need just in case.

Thanks.
Quite a lot more flavour and strength compared to a typical British Brown Ale from when they were a popular drink.

I think in general "American" versions of British styles are stronger, but a well made British style beer can be quite flavorful.
