Brewday - Fuggale English Ale
Well I’d vacuum packed up my first full harvest of Fuggles so thought why not throw them all into a nice and simple English Ale, probably my last brew for a while too as I’m moving house soon. Anyway it was a relatively simple brew with just pale malt and a touch of Crystal. Add to that a total of 100g of fresh dried Fuggles even for bittering to create Fuggale! I did want to make a slightly lower ABV than my last few but slightly misjudged my grain amounts and efficiency, it ended up pretty high. So I just watered it down and made 23L rather than 18L, which means the ABV should come to around 4.5%, so I’ll have plenty of this beer to keep me going, lol. Full fermentation had kicked in yesterday, so will see how it is by the end of the week and probably dry hop it too.
