Number 374:A late start after a busy bottling day.I had also been to the gym for a spinning session which tired me out nicely.Up for breakfast and some clearing up then a megashop.Spinning again then home to make my speciality tacos.Found a beer that is one of the styles I brewed, hope it turns out similar!The Beer:Westmalle Trappist Tripel from Brouwerij der Trappist van Westmalle of Malle, Belgium.Somewhat of a contrast to yesterday’s mild ale – a whopping 9.5% that you can feel. Great…

Number 373:Bottling day at last!Had a few errands to run first but then it was beer, beer,My first batch (a strong IPA) is looking good.Was a bit of a struggle to siphon it over and there was quite a lot of sediment causing blockages.But in the end I had 25 bottles – so next week it’s tasting time!The Beer:Nissebrygg from Haandbryggeriet of Drammen, Norway.Very nice one this – hard to guess the relatively low alcohol level too.

This is superb – let’s hope my tripel is similar.
