Brew #72: Rambler’s Cracked Heel Bitter

July 1, 2014

Continuing my Rambler’s theme of boring brown beers. No hop stand, some chocolate malt for colour and a touch more than usual crystal malt. All new hops to me. Repairing the pipeline first, after that a competition DIPA and finally, hopefully, the burton ale to condition and age in time for Christmas.
