After a month off of brewing, we resume with a clone of Bluebird Bitter from Coniston Brewing in Cumbria.  This is the sixth batch of this ale, using the same grain bill each time, pale malt, with a pound of crystal, half a pound of wheat, and an ounce of roast barley.  Hops are Northern Brewer for bittering and First Gold for flavour and aroma.  The target was 1.043, but we exceeded it again, getting 1.050 instead.  Incidentally, this was the first brew of the season outside.
