Peas & Gravy
October 22, 2012 in Beer
So – first week down in the Bloggers Brewing Challenge and I’m kicking myself for not following my Yorkshire upbringing and using better water in my beer as some of the other bloggers appear to have done. If you are ever in Leeds and have half a day, a fun thing to do is to go round the Tetley’s brewery. Hardly craft or boutique, it is nevertheless quite good fun and what you do learn at the end of it (mainly because they drum it into your head at every conceivable turn) is that when it comes to good beer “It’s awll in the warrrrta.” That was my attempt at phonetically-spelling “It’s all in the water.” In a Yorkshire accent. Not quite sure it worked out – maybe Stephanie Be’s boyfriend can advise me further???
Anyway – suffice it to say, I didn’t go trolling around Newlands with a bucket, so good old Cape Town Municipality water will have to do for me. I opened the brew this weekend to add yet more secret ingredients. Here you go – my peas and gravy brew.
It’s getting a bit chilly out there which apparently is all to the good but I’ve wrapped it up tenderly in a blanket and will see how it goes. And in the meantime, I thought you might like to see this – The wonderful world of wine-beer They say it takes a lot of beer to make a good wine. Let’s hope the reverse is also true cos there’s a helluva lot of wine being drunk in my house at the moment.
