Twas the sixth week before Christmas

The 'Claws is all kegged and primed. Added 175g of lactose too, it was just a bit too dry and bitter, not what I wanted. Bottom of the mild tastes great. Looks like the beer should be ready just on Christmas.

Have to say, I was worried. It sat at 1012 for a few days, and it was getting smellier and smellier....rather sour/old ale. But it tastes fine, perhaps that is what happens when you use Belgian Ale yeast. In the keg it smelt fantastic, cloves and oranges......can't wait for Christmas as this smooths out in the cask.
