Racking Dance with the Devil

Today we racked (casked) up three tanks of beer, nearly 2000 litres in all.  The beers in question were "The Party Line", "Millennium Bug" and our new red IPA "Dance with the Devil", a collaboration brew with new Cardiff micro Crafty Devil.

It was our first taste of this brew and we were all dying to see how it had come out after 10 days maturation in conditioning tank 8 with 2kg of Citra and a kilo of Columbus pellets...  pretty well, it turned out, with a lush fruity, mangoey citra nose, smooth rich maltiness and a solid bitter, hoppy character; this will intensify in cask so we're very hopeful of something pretty damn special in a few weeks' time!

This week we're brewing twice to re-stock the tanks after a busy few weeks; first up is an as yet unnamed brew using the new American "hop of the year" (if internet gossip is anything to go by) Azzacca, then we're doing the final brew - until the new season hops arrive in summer - of perennial favourite Oceanic with Nelson Sauvin and Galaxy hops... the brewery is going to smell lush this week methinks!
