Re: German beer supplier

Boris used to run Avon Brewing Company in Redfield. They only did two beers: Gurt Lush, a strong bitter and a strong porter with a bottle of port in each cask. He seemed pretty jaded about the brewing industry when the wheels came off and said real money was to be made in importing German lagers.

Re: Whats happening to my hop aroma?

Hop aroma dies dissipate over time but that sounds way too quick. Could be any of a number of faults like oxidation or infection but you would need to bring it to a meeting to identify which.

How do the bottles taste?
