Having successfully made 2 Berliner Wiesses, I discovered that drinking exclusively 2.1% beers doesn't give you a sense of satisfaction like a viscous, chewy stout - so I made one.   A beer to be taken seriously - hence the name.

Mash: 1 hour at 63ºCspace moomins

4 Kg Pale malt

100g crystal malt

300g chocolate malt

100g roast barley

Homebrew: Strawberry & Lemon Wheat Fields

I ran out of beer to drink.   I discovered that my Saisons taste way better with acid malt in.   I remembered how good Tooti Fruiti (a sour, lemon & lime zest beer) tasted.   I also found loads of dried strawberries (containing no sulphites) massively discounted in a shop.   I put all these things together & a Berliner wiesse was formulated with half the brew being made with Strawberries & half with lemon.
