Something for the winter months December 14

I brewed a nice strong (5.3% ish) English bitter called Tumbleabout Strong Bitter last weekend, as I wanted something a bit darker and more warming than the pale ales I've been brewing recently.

The brewday is written up here although I didn't take any pictures of this one. I did however sustain my first brewing injury - a skinned knuckle due to slipping whilst trying to push the hose pipe for the chiller inlet onto the outside tap and then managed to scald the same hand with boiling water when the chiller outlet hose jumped out of the sink.

Collected almost 23 litres in all and it's almost finished in the primary with S-04 yeast. Next up I think I'm going to be brewing a couple of well know classics for around my birthday - Morland Old Speckled Hen and Timothy Taylor Landlord. :)
