Water, water everywhere

by EJ

Families got together tonight and had a solid time. Worded Steve up about my most recent impressions of the Aus Pale Ale but he was none too phased, as usual.
Fact is, its got no taste beyond the short pop of aroma hops. After that: nothing! He agreed. BUT! I do get a good kick out of drinking homebrew. We followed his with mine: one of the English Bitters. A tad too early, unfortunately. Young with nigh on zero carbonation (which is actually a good starting point).
I’ve certainly learnt a very good yet simple rule with these two batches. Watch the volume! Too much water and you’ll end up with an insipid unloved thing that no-one will drink.
