Free Beer!!!!

Postby Fraoch » Mon Nov 18, 2002 1:03 am

My mate Craig from my LBHS supplies me with my grain.I buy 8kg here and there so to speak. He always adds a little extra to the scales so as not to under weigh,well, ive been storing those" extras" for 2 years in the freezer and i finally got enough to do a 10gal batch for free!!!!!!So i made "Fugglers Traditionale", got 90% extraction and ended up with too much!!! My primary fermenter was to capacity and the yeast cake nearly hit the roof of the fridge.I bought that 25ltr carboy with tap, or rather Craig swapped it for an extra door tap i had, and had to fill that way up to the neck for 2ndary after splitting the batch.Yep you guessed it, Krausen spewing forth from the airlock. Its all settled down and quick sample shows good promise. Its free,its stronger than normal and im as happy as a brewer could be,
thanks Craig, youre a good bloke,
