My experience are going to be done, so it’s time to brew! I created a new beer for Fyne Ales, as planned: it’s a typical British bitter beer, deep golden in colour, with a low ABV percentage (just 3.7%) and made with English ingredients (low colour Maris Otter malt, Amber malt, British hop varieties). Beer smells great, with floral and herbaceous hints coming from hops (I did a medium strenght dry hopping), and tastes very good, due to a slight malt sweetness. It will be presented at FyneFest this year, so I’m so exciting and worried at the same time, but I’m sure that it will be ok.
Meanwhile works in the brewery go very fast, in order to prepare beers for the festival. We increased production significantly, and a lot of UK breweries started to send us their beers. It seems that reigns chaos in the brewery, but everything is under the vigilant supervision of our head brewer, Malc. I learned a lot from this experience, and I firstly would like to thank him for his patience and his advices; I won’t never forget my Scottish big brother!
Lastly I want to thank all Fyne Ales staff, from Jamie and Tuggy that welcomed me as in a family; Phil, Sam, Helaine and Janey for their patience about my requests; Kim and Sam for all smiles given during this weeks; Andrea, Chris, Stuart and Aahron for the awesome days passed in the name of the beer!
It was a very useful experiece for me, I’m very happy to have known this big family, and I’m sure that will be a lot of opportunities in the future to meet us another time.
Thanks all! Cheers!
