I got my latest order from MrBeer. Jazzberry Ram
the Seasonal Pilsner
Sticky Wicket Oatmeal Stout
A 3rd LBK First problem, one of the cans of Oatmeal Stout came with a couple of rather large dings in them. I'm pretty strict about not using product with dents. I would never pick this up at the store so Mr Beer are sending me a replacement and this one gets thrown out. That leave me with three choices. The seasonal Pilsner needs to be fermented at a temperature lower than I can keep it at right now. My mind is made up! First, Czech Pilsner - first surprise was forgetting it's actually made from a Canadian High Country Draft and hops. I'll give it a go anyway. Most of my recent beers have been dark so it'll be a nice change. Second is the Jazzberry Ram, and I'm looking forward to this, my first fruity beer. In fact, both of these use supplied hops and its my first time to use them so will be interesting. Not only that but my Dutch Apple Ale is fermented, bottled, and conditioned, now I just need a couple of weeks of largering, so I emptied my beer fridge of Newcastle Brown Ale so I could fit in a case of D.A.A. - Can't wait to pop the top on that one. Now the problem is that my 3rd LBK arrived but I wasn't able to order the self locking tap because they are no longer selling them. I read in another thread they were found to be "defective". I see there's a new spigot tap (sku 31102) but I'd have to wait until I place a new order to get it, and it doesn't say if it works with the existing wand. Anyway, I have a couple of weeks to think about it.
