    9 days after bottling, I thought I better have a taste.
    Pretty good, not spectacular, but pretty good. It's got a bit of twang which hopefully will fade. Lovely maltiness and the crystal has given it a bit of body.
    It was my first attempt at bulk priming and bottle 23 of 27 came out pretty well. Head retention on the second glass wasn't as good as the first, but that should come.
    Happy with this one, should be a good winter drinker until the stout is ready

    I gave some away today as a thanks for some free firewood. It's the first stuff I've made that I'm happy to leave with people and not feel I need to be there to defend it

    Bit late for comment I know.
    But who the heck needs a slow starting yeast?
    US-05 is slow enough & causes me concern every time I use it.
    Frankly I can' tell the difference between the Kit Coopers yeast & US-05 at least with my strong tasting hoppy beers. I know that's almost heresy but it's true.
    Pitched at the recommended temp Coopers yeasts are quick starters & almost never fail.
    And my bubbler almost always indicates activity which is when I relax somewhat.

    I agree with your comments on coopers yeasts... there is a bit of yeast b/s around. I’ve never had a problem with coopers yeast either and brew a modified pale ale quite regularly using the kit yeast... never been an issue

    "modified pale ale"?
    I would like to see your recipe, unless it's a trade secret.
