One beer, the Southerly Buster (for want of a better name) is already a huge success among the volunteer testers. A very simple yet dangerously drinkable affair, (Maris otter, dark crystal, roasted barley, Challenger and EK Goldings). A decent Kolsche is also on the cards. As ever, the conundrum of producing beers relatively accessible to conservative beer drinkers while appealing to more discerning palettes continues. Work on other recipe formulation is underway, with a silky smooth stout currently in primary fermentation. Our eager volunteer taste-testers are at the ready. The Steam Exchange will buck the trend of micros producing heavily hopped unbalanced American Pale Ale stuffed choc-a-bloc full of Cascade hops to hide how oxidised the product is. Dare to be different!
