Below is a list of the top bottled India Pale Ales that I have tasted;
There is a long list of ingredients on my list of Things You Can't Buy In Cumbria - one of them is mango pulp (other things include peanut milkshake, decent lime pickle, date molasses, grape soda or cheap tahini and coconut oil). When I was down in the midlands I picked up a big can of the stuff as mango IPAs seemed to be all the rage a couple of years ago & I wanted to try making one.
Mash - 1 hour 25 mins starting at 68ºC & falling to 63ºC at the end.
2.5Kg pale ale malt
I've gone back to an electric brew system again after using gas for a year or so, but my wife wants the kitchen back & making food when mealtimes cross my brew time just makes the brewday even longer.
My first brew in the new house in Cockermouth & our kitchen is still too small to do anything else when brewing is occurring. Encouragingly the hob here doesn't have a toast rack annoyingly over it preventing large brewing vessels being placed on it & god-knows what bugs raining down from it.
04/05/14. My 31st homebrew, p-Al-e continues the AL series of beers.
This beer is named Darkest Days as it is brewed in the period just after the winter solstice in the northern hemisphere.&nb
26/10/13. My 24th homebrew, Seaham Kernel & Magic.
18/08/13. My 22nd homebrew, Seaham Sauvin due to the hops used.
07/04/13. My 17th homebrew, a single brew. Seaham CAC² due to the 3 hops used like my last brew but this time with a higher alcohol content
