Fullers AK 1925 - 1939

Just remembered that I hadn't posted the later years of Fullers AK. Been too busy gadding about and book writing. Recipe writing mostly. Such fun.

Just like AK. A topic of which I never tire. And keep returning to. I've amassed quite a collection of AKs from different breweries. It's fun to compare them. Which I may do properly, should arsing and my schedule allow.

If I'm honest, it's a pretty dull table. Not a lot was going on in terms of gravity or ABV. Or the level of hopping, for that matter. There's really not a lot I can say about any of it. A whole eload of nothing going on.

Oh, I know what I cant tell you: what happened to Fullers AK during WW II? The gravity dropped to 1028.4º in June 1941 nad soon after that, it disappeared forever. The old death by nowhere lower for the OG to go. Another slightly stronger Bitter got the chap, too. Only the strongest, PA, survived. Though, by the end of the war, its gravity wasn't much higher than this AK. Just 1034.6º.

Why don't I have the later AKs in the table? Because I haven't extracted the information from Fullers wartime records yet. I've still loads of brewing records unprocessed. Ones relevant to my current project get priority.

Will the grist be more exciting? I wouldn't get your hopes up.
