We arrived to a warm small brewhouse, now so named the “Goldfish Bowl” .
Water was brought up to brewing speed. A mash tun was filled. We had breakfast. Sparge was started. Hops were opened. A little dose of hops was added. The boil happened. more hops were added. after a while even more hops. particularly pungent hops were added. then even more.
Amazingly, having made hop soup, we ran off to the fermenter, it flowed nicely. We filled a fermenter. We hit target volumes and gravity.
It smelled very nice. Caused a few, “woah, that smells different!” from all the staff running around the restaurant.
We cleaned up.

UPDATED: MAY 21, 2011 Cask @ The Brewpub. Version I had was 4.8% Golden amber colour, slightly hazy, good head. Hardly any aroma, mildly malty. Sweet biscuit resin malt flavour. Creamy texture. Bitter sweet aftertaste. Quite acceptable but not outstanding.
