The first open day went quite well. It was nice to see both new and old faces.
For me the really good part of the day was just how well the trial red ale was received. It’s a smokey red ale. I’ve used a reasonable amount of smoked malt in it, but nowhere near enough to make it a smoked beer. The resulting smokiness is gentle.
And the colour was pretty good. I plan to brew this beer in a week or so and will make a couple of small adjustments to enhance the colour. It should be available mid-October.
The next open day will be Sunday October first.
