Hey my dominee told me something about that this weekend. Apparently he's aiming at like 3 or 4 mil, and moving toward his goal. Around Harties area, IIRC.

Bottled my mead last night. Came out BEAUTIFULLY, specially the melomel. Just look at that colour:



Taste is also on par. The traditional one is quite "meh", so I turned all of my batch into melomel. Quite a bit better, IMO!

Right now, nothing. Bottled my cider the past weekend, might do my chocolate/coffee stout next weekend though.

Plenty stouts are still good young. I do kits, so they're petty much drinkable 4 weeks later, and to me the peak of winter is still coming so my timing might be right on.

I would never use these expensive noble/aroma hops in a boil of more than 10 minutes at the max, you boil off the aroma.
I use a SAB hops for all my bittering in all my brews and only use aroma/noble types for 5 min maximum boil and dry hopping.
If I were to brew for a competition, I may consider it to get closer to a specific style.

Beers generally contain very little to none. Ciders, yes, but not beers. What beers do you think have it? Do you have asthma?

Highly doubt it's sulfites. Sulfites cause allergy-related reactions, like itching, hives, shortness of breath and tight chest, not headaches (usually). How do you respond to ciders like Savannah and wines (red and white)?

Red Wine is the worst - i come out in itching all over my face and it goes red instantly heh.

Sounds like sulfites, yes. I would just stay away if I were you - spirits would be the recommendation.

I drink 2x1000ml Black Labels every night after work and get no headaches or anything. I sleep so well after my 2 beers
