    Is there something special about boiling?

    Just wondering if there is something special about the water boiling when brewing or cooking or to ask it another way if you are brewing or cooking at an altitude where water boils at 85C would the resulting beer or food be the same as if you did the boil or cooked at 85C at sea level when the...

    Covid-19 the second wave.

    Kent County Council are now advising everyone to get tested every 2 weeks even if they have no symptoms and have only left there home to buy essentials. Is this happening everywhere? Symptom-free testing - Kent County Council

    Keg lost carbonation

    Have the kegs been connected to the gas at 12 psi since they were OK or could they have been sitting at 0 for ages then been put up to 12? Don't think about the cylinder feeding them is fine a and not the problem.

    Just an observation, since 1st October deaths are as a percentage lower in every age group except over 80s. Numbers for England and only include people who died in hospital.

    Car insurance offer to low? Anyone had experience in this

    Except in this case it clearly does I can find high mileage ones for sale from £1400-£2500 but the only ones with under 120K are £3950 - £5000 and I have demonstrated that in an online auction my car if not damaged should have sold for over £3990. Also what has the trade in value got to do with it?

    Covid-19 the second wave.

    Thats 1 reason I used hospital admissions, I agree a positive test result doesn't mean you are ill or will get ill but if they were totally false we should have seen a large no testing positive twice which we are not.

    Covid-19 the second wave.

    Thank you for sharing I sincerely hope you are OK. I agree this new strain does seem to be much more contagious, to put it into numbers using hospital admissions unless stated. In the 1st wave with no restrictions yet in place doubling time was around 5 days in England as a whole, in the...
