Cuckoo Brew-ventures...

After what was supposed to be a "two halves and then home" evening at the Red Willow gaff, which spiralled into a fantastic Italian ale tasting session (from the likes of BrewFist, ToccalMatto and Birrificio Italiano), my head is feeling a bit on the tender side this morning. So whilst having a medicinal cup of coffee earlier I had a quick scan through Twitter and spotted a retweet from Manc brewer Blackjack Beers bringing my attention to an interesting write up on Othertonales Blog. The article chronicles the aspiring author's recent visit to Blackjack Beers to cook up his own homebrew concoction on Marble Brewery's old kit. It's interesting to read from an amateur brewer's perspective, the move from a homebrew set up to adapting a recipe for larger professional equipment, all with the aim of going commercial with the results. I think I shall be keeping a close eye on that blog...
