Back to brewing @ home after a 17 year hiatus the climes told me it was time to get nutty and go brown!
Grabbing a good old Black Rock Nut Brown Ale kit on the recommendation of friends @ Grain & Grape it just did not feel like enough! Kit brewing is the cheats way out to home brew so why not chuck in some Willamette hops and a couple of Fuggles hop plugs with a Wyeast London Ale Yeast and oh yeah, why not chuck in some East Timor Organic Coffee Beans late in the boil for a great roasted nutty taste :-)
Dry hopped in the fermenter with the Fuggles hops and brewed at 18 degrees Celsius.
Brewed on: Sat 18 July 2011 Bottled on: Sat 2 July 2011 Best after: Oct 2011
It's a wonderful deep brown clear drop with a big bold hoppy head and dry hop finish. Internationally sourced ingredients, the International Nutta Brown Ale is a winner!
It's good to be back brewing after 16 years off! 16 years too long my friends. Brew on :-)
