I got back from a lovely weekend in Northern Ireland (or Norn Iron as the natives call it...), which incidentally is a total dry spot for real ale. If anyone knows of any decent breweries in the County Tyrone or County Derry areas it would be great if they could let me know.
Anyhow, I've just tested this brew and it is down to 1.014, which is showing good progress. I guess I'll check it again in a couple of days then put it in a barrel at the weekend, all being well. Had a cheeky taste from the test jar and it seems to be losing quite a bit of the harsh bitterness it had when it first went on.
