According to an old GBG that I have just dug out, BC Guinness was phased out in 1993 (so consistent with Phil’s memories).

My scooping notes say April 93 was the last batch of BC Guinness so there’s another agreement!

There are a lot of good beers over in the US that are made with extracts.

Isn’t it the case, though, that these beers are made with the "new" CO2 extracted stuff rather than normal hop extract? I’ve heard good things about CO2 extract and wouldn’t mind giving it a go.

I would be interested in trying some of these hop exstract beers, as we’re going to b experimenting on our homebrew kit at the brewery, to see what crazy things we can do with them. Maybe something like a 4.3% golden chappy with 3% of the liquid volume being hop exstract so that its about 400 million IBU’s.

But they’re not made just with extracts, are they?

Yes, I thought the extracts were used for the bittering charge to cut down on the amount of hops in the kettle to improve wort yield?

Or am I wrong as usual?

Thanks both! And credit to Fin who prompted me to reevaluate my earlier late-80s estimate.
