    Last one tonight, the fantastic Bateman's Victory. Doesn't really need an introduction this one. Awesome.

    What are you drinking tonight 2020.

    Next up, Sam Smith's excellent India Ale. This is how I like my English IPAs. There are a few like this - Shepherd Neam do one for instance. I'm not saying they taste the same , bit they are the same sort of style. Delicious.

    What are you drinking tonight 2020.

    It's my favourite cask ale by a long margin. Has to be well kept. Cracking beer. The glass in the picture was one of the ones they were giving away a couple of years ago when the increased its gravity back to the original 4.7%, if you drank 8 pints. I took one home after a single session with...

    What are you drinking tonight 2020.

    First up, Sam Smith's Pale Ale. This is fantastic. I haven't had it in ages, and it really is good. Crystal malt and Sam Smith's yeast, classic ho's ( I'm going to guess at fuggles + late EKG). Yummy yum yum.

    Covid-19 the second wave.

    The curfew is one of the most stupid decisions ever. The whole evenings worth of customers will now be crammed into a shorter timescale meaning more crowded pubs, etc. Stupidity. You have to remember that PHE is crammed full of temperance tossers, so the answer to everything will be some kind...

    Another pint of my Belgian thingie. Keg is nearly empty. So, predictably, it has finally started to clear.

    Buying full bags of grain

    Presently, I'm paying around £25 for a sack of base malt ( a bit less for some, a bit more for fancy stuff) from local micro breweries.

    I am utterly convinced they have changed the recipe; it used to be an ok beer, but now I find it not to my taste.

    Shaving brushes

    I've recently got back into using a pot of shaving soap, after finding it better than shaving cream / gel in an aerosol can. Initially, I was using some fancy pants stuff from the body shop that the good lady got me for Christmas, but when I went to get some more, it was about a tenner a pot...

    Non temp control on "warm" ferment beers...

    How about looking at the maximum temp likely over the next 7 days, then brewing at a temp slightly over that, for instance if you think it's going to max out at 20°, the brew at 22° with the heat pad and then it will always be at a constant, stable temp?

    Young people hit as unemployment rate rises

    It's scant comfort to those who have lost their jobs, but this figure isn't as bad as the ONS predicted previously of 730,000.
