@Dez. Bring a few bottles of your American brown ale to the swap, I'd love to taste it. I like brown ales

Will do mate. But it's not a very good example of the style imho. A recipe I'll continue to work on.
Probs gonna bring a 9L keg of it and a 9L of IPA.
Also fancies pellicles.

American brown ale. 40L batch brewed for the swap. Ok, not great though. Either not enough hops or too much hops, stuck in the middle. Not going to swap it, have a backup plan.

Needs more hops.
I have nothing interesting to add here.

I had nothing dark in the kegs so gave Dez's porter recipe a go. I'm glad I did, very nice!

Next time you want to brew a dark beer, try the Cascadian Black i posted. It's an absolute cracker and brewed in tribute to Kooinda Black IPA.

Have to track down some Nelson Sauvign is all.

Rye golden ale dry hopped with (I think) amarillo and possibly centennial. Great hop flavour and aroma, plenty of malt and a smooth finish. Head retention is spectacular.

This is getting close to the last of my batch of Southern Brown Ale. It turned out very nicely considering I followed an extract grain bill for all grain without using the extract... I did add a small amount of a big American Stout to it to give it a bit more ompf.

It still couldn't be anymore than ~3% ABV and you'd never guess it from the flavour and body.

First beer brewed in the Grainfather, a 3.5% dry stout. Before and after using a 'pocket sparkler'. Only been on gas for 24h so very low carbonated, would be sensational through a handpump. Can imagine knocking back several of these with Butters.

Last picture is a stout at the other end of the spectrum. 2016 barrel RIS. Will be kegging the 2017 edition this week.

California Common
Such an easy beer style to make but makes for a tasty quaffer that works so well all year round.

Is there a lagering period required for the Cali common?

Good question.
The California Common lager strains out there ferment more like ale strains, ie. they ferment warmer but are strictly speaking lager strains.
I actually used a lager yeast. I find the idea of lagering a bit old school. If the beer has fermented out well without any off flavours I don't see the point of lagering other than a long-winded way of dropping the yeast out of suspension.
I cold crash for a few days, then give it some gelatine for a few days then keg.
This one is still a touch hazy but it'll drop clear after the first few litres.
