It seems I have to go to the home brew shop again

I seem to be the only person in the world who actually likes a bit of sulphur in their beer. Everything I read has people cringing at the very thought of it, but it's frequently found in two of my favourite kinds of beer – English bitter and Franconian Lagerbier.

I was delighted on one visit to find a good whack of sulphur in the Clockwork Brewery's lager, but on subsequent tastings I was disappointed. Clearly the brewer regarded it as a defect and had successfully eliminated it from later batches.

Since I have soft water, it appears I need to go and buy some calcium sulphate.
