Bitter #3

Bitter #3

My adventures in home brew continue! After two very successful batches of Woodfordes Wherry and Great Eastern, I thought I should maybe branch out and try something a bit different. This is a batch of “Geordie Bitter” wort, made up with a bag of BKE (“Beer Kit Enhancer” – a mixture of malt and dextrose) instead of regular sugar. 

Despite the colder weather, the fermentation went way faster than with the Woodfords kits (which tended to be a bit slow/sticky), leaving a final abv of around 4.2%. Smelled delicious when it went into the barrel… (a bit like toffee apples, which seemed strangely appropriate for the time of year). Now I just have to let it mature for a few weeks…
