Pinter Brew #4: Guestlist

Aug 19, 2021 | Beer

As a bonus for sending referrals ‘The Greater Good’, the company behind the Pinter brewing vessel, were sending out a ‘fresh press’ pack called ‘Guestlist’, unavailable on the public shop.

I managed to secure the rare fresh press before they ended this service by sending a few referrals their way from this very blog.

Guestlist should create a dark lager. The information states it should be 4.8% ABV and it should be a medium bodied, bready and malty lager. It should be smooth, ruby in colour with a very subtle hop finish.

This brew went very smoothly, and I stretched out the brewing and conditioning phases as recommended.

As it was a ‘ruby’ colour, I took this round to my in-laws’ ruby wedding celebration at their house.

I took it round a day before and kept it in the fridge until the event, it was then moved to prime spot for those entering the garden.

I renamed it ‘Roys Ruby Lager’ and adorned the tap with an old photo I’d dug up of my father-in-law for extra giggles.

I was a bit worried, as there is often a fear of darker beers being ‘heavy’ and really bitter. However, I was please a lot of family members tried the beer and went back for seconds, so I would say it was a resounding success!

So successful was the brew, that this is probably one of the only Pinter brews I’ve managed so far which was finished on the day it was tapped.

I certainly thought it was tasty, and it’s a fresh press I’d like to return to their shop, as a bonus for referrals or simply being widely available for purchase.

Pinter Brew #6: Welsh Red B(Ale)

I’d had more success with darker, maltier ales when brewing with the Pinter, so this time I try a red ale and bottle some for the first time.

Being English, I got well behind the boys at the Euros by brewing ‘Alexa, Play Three Lions’, an English pale ale in time for the England vs. Germany match in the second round.
