My home brew has been sitting patiently in it's bottles for the last few months and the last time I tried it I felt it was a little harsh and just tasted of smoked bananas steeped in alcohol.
Strangely, that's not as appealing as it sounds.
So I gave it another couple of weeks and I am drinking one now. You know what? It's not too bad.
It's quite a strong flavour with a gingery, biscuity, banana taste. It's got perhaps a hint of cloves too. It has nice soft carbonation and is keeping it's head very well. I remember working out the approx alcohol level and it was about 8%, I think.
Now you wouldn't really drink a load of it but a bottle of two would be ok I think. Mind you I'm biased. I'm quite proud of it really. Especially as it's just from a kit and it's my first.
It's a Brewferm Grand Cru and if you look up my previous posts on Home Brew then you'll see how it progressed.
Anyway, I'm back!
