Thought I would give you all an update on the St. Peter’s Golden Ale I made from kit (see previous post). After racking it into the plastic pressure barrel which came with my starter kit, I left it to condition for a week and a change before giving it a little sample. Not too bad! It is a little flat for my liking, this could be due to either the sub-par pressure barrel which came with my starter kit, or to a miscalculation when adding the priming sugar before barreling. Either way, I am happy with the result and will enjoy drinking it over the coming weeks.
In other news, I am absolutely hooked on home brewing. I have already bought extra kit (a higher quality “King Keg” plastic pressure barrel with CO2 canister attachment, and an upgraded lid for my current pressure barrel) and a second kit. This time it will be the American beers IPA kit. Stay posted for more updates on my home brew journey.
