After a long break, well earned I must say, we're back in the brewery today!
We've also picked up some new casks from the manufacturers and collected a load of malt and hops for the next 3 brews which will be Simcoe Plus, a 5.5% or so strong stout and a 4.5% or so pale & hoppy creation with as yet undecided hops from the stash.
This evening we've given the brewery plant a good caustic wash and flush through with water ready for the brewday tomorrow (Simcoe plus, can't wait for this one!) and the hot liquor tank is heating up ready for action...
Bring on 2014, here's hoping we build on what we've already achieved.
