Seeing all the Belgian beer discussion on E-Mail this week jogged me into action... Part of my winter cross training this year (as god knows you can't get out on your bike in West Cumbria at the minute!)has been setting up an all-grain (IE From scratch) nano-brewery with a couple of mates.
We've all pitched in some cash to buy equipment and ingredients and chosen a beer to brew. My first effort is a Trappist-Style brown beer, about 8.4% ABV, as part of my continuing and deepening obsession with all things Belgian.
Now, here's the rub. Firstly, I'd like tasters to send a couple of 330ml bottles to for evaluation, after Christmas when it's been bottle conditioned properly. Secondly, Mark, I'd like to call the beer Here Come the Belgians and have Erik on the label, is that acceptable?
So then.. Volunteers?
