Time for another brew as I counted up over 40 empty bottles in the beer pantry. I had a London Porter brewkit but when opened found it had none of the hops it should have, no yeast and no instructions (sometimes there are differences in when to add the hops). Anyway, I found some old yeast in a packet and revived it with some tepid water and dextrose and we shall see if it gets going this afternoon. I may have slightly cocked up though, as the kit came with two packs of malt and a big bag of dextrose, which on reflection may have been meant for post fermentation conditioning in bottle or pressure barrel. Oh, well...I guess the alcohol content might be a bit high on this brew :-o

Good news - fermenting is going nicely and it looks like I am meant to throw in some Target hops about half way through. I can get those from the brew shop not far from me for just a few quid.

Very recently, last weekend, I spotted a couple of cans from a brewery called Distant Hills, as I explained earlier they used to be Howard Town. I have had a couple of cans, Xanadu and Kerala, very good indeed, try Distant Hills' beers if you find them, they're from Glossop.
