  • First brew?

    What would you given the do over, brew as a first brew?

    (yeah, I've gone and done it, got a small kit, and I'm kinda itching to fire it up! - even tho I have a good week or so of cleaning and other shit to do!)

    (Small Garage brewery - 4bbl plant - Southern UK market - cask ale & bottles)

    I'm thinking - do I go with a statement beer - loads of flavour, US hops, multi-grain base -

    or go with a system trial brew - pale malt, goldings, some cascades, keep it simple.

      I'd brew a nice hoppy pale ale, (because it'd help me dial in color, bitterness and specific gravity) and call it something like "Pleased To Meet You!"

      Cheers, Tim

          I brewed on a new one last week and thought about the smoked porter...But the brewery I am consulting for is in to the light n tasty crowd...I did an easy pale ale instead...

          Go bold.... if thats your style
