Brew #80: Rambler’s Resolution Bitter

December 6, 2014

This beer was going to be my final one but I never got to brew it – all my brewing gear and books were on sale and they sold very quickly. I really loved my Speidel BM, 98% of the beers I brewed with it and the hobby itself. Not living in a free country and commercial beers being quite expensive and limited in range, BM saved me a pretty penny even when factoring in the high cost of the initial outlay. Should I ever pick up the hobby again I’ll get the BM again but for the time being I will be limited to commercial beer, which should be no problem in England where I’ll be returning to some time next year, earlier the better.

I assume this blog and its recipes will stay open for future reference for anyone interested, I have lost the password and also the other password for the email address linked to it so when those get erased from my laptop it all goes into the cyberspace. I hope some people found the blog useful, thanks for reading, new life new hobbies, onwards and upwards,
