    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.

    One of my greatest successes was brewing Sour Saturday after visiting the Chorlton Brewing Company in Ardwick, Manchester just over a year ago.   I wanted to brew something similar, even though it's a niche beer that not everyone will want a taste of.

    One of the best beers I ever brewed was a lager a few years ago, brewed during cold weather.   I fermented it in a conservatory with the heating set low (about 12°C), then turned down further to frost protect (about 5°C) whilst the bottled beer lagered.

    Having had to pour my last beer away, I had no beer in the house & so had to brew one.   Having only a few uninteresting hops, but several new bags of darker malts I thought a stout was due.
