Nice to hear from a fellow Brit. Your Hobgoblin clone project sounds interesting as I am a fan of that brew myself. How do you fancy starting a thread and perhaps researching recipes with a view to a bottle swap ?
I like the sound of this!
I have done a few Bitters now, and they all ended up really good. The problem I have is it takes about 6 months before they get to their peak.
Pendle witch, Tribute, Landlord - all good but only after very long conditioning. I did Hashies Old Speckled Hen about 6 weeks ago and it is not good yet.
I guess I am going to have to wait until summer
I would like to see not only how other brewers beers compare, but also how drinkable they are at certain times. Count me in!
