I completely forgot to blog Buchwider Bräu ?? back in January when I starting drinking it. I’ve just opened my second last bottle (apart from the ones in my “archive”), so it’s high time to write about it.
My ?? is a clone of Caledonian Deuchars IPA, using a recipe from CAMRA’s Brew Your Own British Real Ale.
I think it’s a very pleasant beer, and my dad praised it highly when he and my mum visited us two weeks ago. Unfortunately I haven’t got a chance to compare it directly with the real Caledonian Deuchars IPA — I must do that with my last bottle!

Tjoh, det kan måske nok arrangeres.
I’ve now compared my beer with a real Caledonian Deuchars IPA. It was very difficult to tell the two beers apart — they looked the same and tasted the same. Of course it would have been great if mine had tasted even better than the real thing, but when you’re brewing a clone, you can hardly complain if they’re almost identical.
