    Well, if we're talking about brewing as well...

    Brewed my first beer to my own recipe yesterday!

    It's inspired by the Marzen beers you find at the Oktoberfest. It's an ale rather than lager, using UK rather than German malts, and should be a fair bit hoppier than the beers in Munich.

    But I've used traditional German hops: Tettnang and Hallertauer Hersbrucker, along with Celeia from Slovenia. It should have quite a soft bitterness for the strength (about 5.6% ABV), albeit quite a lot of hop flavour and aroma.

    Can't wait to see how it turns out!
