    Hi Steve just wanted to say thanks I have learnt loads form your posts, I have read your grainfather and water guide countless times. Thanks for the help.
    Hi Steve.Re secret santa,
    I am afraid that i will be unable to sample the beer sent to me until after 9 th jan.Have been having problems with prostate and have had spells off the booze. Was taken to hospital today as i was i so much pain,been there bloody hours. Have been sent home with co dydramol tablets,enough to get me through to an appointment with urologist on the 9th.In short i am to stay off of alcohol until then. I can get my lad or my son in law to sample the beer over xmas and report to me or if the sender is happy i can postpone the report and sample it myself once i have been seen,although i depends on what is done or not at the time.
    Perhaps you can enquire with the sender as to what they would like me to do.
    Rather go through yourself as against posting my woes up on the forum,last ways until the sender has agreed to what they would prefer i do.
    Bloody dry xmas:twisted:
    Hi Steve from your posts I see your a bit of a water guru I need a bit of advice on brewing a stout. Basically a while ago I asked a question on here about sodium carbonate/bicarb. I don't know how to put a link to it but the thread was called (sodium carbonate or bicarbonate of soda). Be a big help if you could have a look at it for me cos I'm busting to get a stout on.
    Thanks Aaron.
