Pimped up shitty aldi cider:



It has a tarty-sourness to it which makes it quite pleasant. Nothing like the other ciders i have made...... Just wondering if she got a bit infected????

All i did was dump 500g of frozen aldi mixed berries into the keg.

I have a cider in primary - when I pitched it I chucked some cut up apples in for some extra flavour....and stupidly forgot to pitch yeast.... The thing fermented out in about a week, and now has a nice pellicle on top. Should be an interesting one!

Pics to come, to keep it OT

Belgian Imperial Stout, probably the best thing I've ever brewed.

20 min from primary to glass.

Dumped off yeast, filtered, forced carb with nitro @ 180 kpa

OMG......... :eek:

This is the 2nd (and last :( ) cube of my cube oaken experiment with bundy soaked toasted rum barrel chips in a cube of porter.

I will dig up the relevant thread to update details. BUt i must say its one of the best beers i have ever made.

This stuff is DEVINE!

Aroma, flavor, bitterness, hops, oak, rum, malt........ its all in harmony and its all very big but quaff able.

I couldn't decide which shot was better

mate..... i have had some good beer on tap over the years........ but........

This is really so bloody spot on.

Every sip is a stop and a quiet thought......... Jesus Christ......... your joking me......... this can be on tap at my house.


You wont regret forking out for the nitro. English bitters, porters, stouts, milds browns, fark....... anything is amazing on nitro.

cheers

Coopers sparkly ale clone, with american ale II yeast so it lacks that classic bite. But very good nonetheless.

Hefeweizen, courtesy of waggastew.

Nice dense fluffy head, which lasts down the glass.
Aroma is fairly light but balanced typical wheat.
Very clean palate with all the usual hefeweizen flavours, with restrained spiciness, and nice mouthfeel.
Very well balanced and refreshing drink.

Better than what I usually make myself. For some reason I always end up with too much clove for my taste. This one doesn't have it.

i know these things are best drunk fresh, and fresh it is, but i feel somewhat embarrassed to post this photo

looks more like a caramel milkshake than a weizen, been a week in the keg and this is the 3rd glass

is this how you guys drink them ?

A great photo of a very turbid beer. I'm not a massive wheat beer fan but that does seem to be a bit over the top.

What does it taste like? And what went into it to make it look like that? Particularly the yeast....

My latest weizen looks like this:
