Our first IPA

Just in case you didn't know, we were making beer.

Look at this. Not too bad, eh?

Here you can see my arms reflected on the glass. I've never said I could take photos

Last Saturday was the oficial tasting day. Obviously we didn't wait until Saturday, but trust me it's better to wait.

As good adopted Edinburgers (or whatever you call the citizens of Edinburgh) our IPA of reference is Deuchars and it's not a reliable beer. I mean that you don't always get a good pint.

Although our IPA is slightly cloudy we haven't had a bad pint so far, even when it wasn't quite ready to drink, but yes, every pint is different. It's because the yeast settles in layers, or something like that.

Final veredict: Oh yes, we've made some good beer!


  1. NOT bad at all and I LOVE India Pale Ale that would be a welcome beverage at your house for me!

  2. Karen, you are welcome anytime if you bring some Lavander fairy cakes ;)
