Back at it...Ridley's Mild (again)

Postby Kyle_T » Mon Mar 14, 2016 14:45

After a short break in brewing and Milds, I've decided to have another crack at making a simple, yet thirst quenching beer. The last time I made it I remember it being sickly sweet in the first week and rather sugary, but by the second week those problems had gone. This one will be destined for the wooden pin so I can finally use my pump clip legitimately!

I have no doubt this will come out a corker as my technique is much more up to scratch compared to what it was and I shall be treating the water with CRS, Calcium Sulphate and Chloride.

The recipe, nice and simple:
