homemade bitter July 17

In January we experimented with making bitter from a commercial homebrew kit. We thought it had not fermented but later realised that leaving the barrel in the garage meant it was simply too cold for the yeast to get to work. As the weather warmed up, the bitter began to brew. We've been sampling it recently.

This kit was just an experiment. We now have plans for making beer from local wild ingredients that have been forgotten about as suitable for brewing. So watch this space as we turn our hand to making beers from nettles and rowan berries.
