    John Smith - Extra Smooth a taste of....well nothing.

    Im currently in North Yorkshire & have had a pint or 6 of Black Sheep & Theakestons & the York Brewery traditional ales. All excellent examples of English real ale IMO.

    John Smith - Extra Smooth a taste of....well nothing.

    Im from Yorkshire too mate. And "them wer't days" has never been truer. Back in the day, the beers were better made, however, they had to be managed properly to get the best out of them. Folk would travel for miles to drink Tetleys in the Gaping Goose in Garforth or Ye olde three tuns in Thirsk...

    Recommend me a commercial porter?

    Sam Smiths Taddy porter is hard to beat. Its got the right body, colour & lovely taste that a porter should have IMHO. Smiths also open top ferment all their beers in Yorkshire squares - pretty darn neat..

    BRY 97

    Thanks for the replies guys. Interesting to note the "do not pitch into a starter". I have pitched Safale 04 & 05 into starters 48hours prior to pitching & both work well for me.

    Barley Wine, how long to leave in secondary?

    1.094 / 1.020 Its a Nogne 100 clone with a boat load of fresh galaxy hops that were kindly donated to the newley formed Hobart Brewers. It was dry hopped with galaxy pellets. It tasted nice for an uncarbonated & fresh BW, which is hopefully going to be even better after ageing.
