    Defo... Overall though, I prefer Pils (lager)-style beers, as they're lighter and more refreshing.

    However, if Angela goes to Aldi, ask her to get you a bottle of the St Pierre. I think you'd love it, as you like Leffe, and for me this is a level above

    I like Leffe (which at 6.6% somewhat exceeds my ABV limit) and I also like Duval, which at 8.5% definitely exceeds my limit; though a couple spread over an evening is, for me, just about managable.

    Perfect - get home from excellent morning in Bury St Edmunds and have a chilled St Peters "Honey Porter".
    I was worried about the honey flavour being dominant when I first bottled it, but three weeks in the bottle and it has turned in to a well balanced flavour

    Cheers Grant - I highly recommend the "St Peters" range of kits. About 20 for 36 pints (once you have fermentation vessel and bottles, which can be reused), absolute bargain in my view.
    Favourite so far is their cream stout.

    Love the fact that you make your own ales, Guy (respect for that), but do you make any blonde ones/IPAs? I'm not really a dark ale or stout kinda guy

    Cheers Marco - I have a couple maturing as we speak

    I have gone a bit experimental with "dry hopping".
    I have a Morgans "golden Saaz pilsner" - a few reviews have said that it needs a bit more flavour, so I added 50g of Saaz hops to the vessel after about four days fermentation, idea being that the hop scent/essence won't be carried out of the beer by the vigorous CO2 production earlier on.

    Also have an American pale which I have dry hopped with 50g of Cascade hops - in the hope of producing a sort of "Shipyard"/"Proper job" style of golden ale.
    Will let you know how they come out.
    So many little experiments to try out, could turn in to a life long hobby
