    What are you drinking tonight 2020.

    @strange-steve I've spent the evening so far going through your 'Beginners Guide to Water Treatment' (my RO unit arrives next week) Only on page 18/53 but I have a fair few pages of notes that I've taken so far.... A clear precis of a complex area, chapeau, monsieur, chapeau! :hat: :hat:

    The world would be so boring if we all liked exactly the same things, in mitigation my sense of taste and smell are very blunt so I need a slap with a 2x4 to notice many flavours. So, finished the orange pale ales and now hitting wheat meet again from electric bear. Crisp and fresh, lovely 👍

    I'm currently drinking liquid marmalade. 😛 I found this cheeky number on the shelf in Lidl this afternoon, couldn't resist giving it a go. Not sure of the brewery, it has Lidl's address on it so it is a 'brewed for' Lists pale ale malt, with Rakau, Admiral, First gold and Mandarins Bavaria...

    I’m on my fifth? Fruit shute pale ale. My current favourite. Chilling with the love of my life and putting the world to rights, a perfect end to a frustrating day. 🍺🍺

    Timber for keezer collar

    Just throwing another option into the mix I used some spare decking wood sized to the outer edge. This allows for the lid ridge as you can cut the insulation fitted to the inside to suit. If it will be on show it will look a bit 'special' but I've boxed my keezer into a larger box to allow the...

    Now you mention it most of it is beer related.... 👍😄🍺🍺🍺

    Whoot! Welcome to the club. I wish I had had a retirement ale, I just travelled a few pubs in that old London city in a stupid tee shirt. 🍺 It was fun though 😎 The days will fill with all the stuff you hadn’t realised was waiting! Glorious! The new era awaits 🏖🍺

    Finished the core wiring of my CraftBeerPi HERMs AG system to be. A quick test indicates that it is working as expected! So have been celebrating with a few glasses of my American Amber Ale... Cheers m'dears

    ... forgot to mention my taps have flow control as well, so when I get it wrong I can fine tune the delivery.

    The boss went to Lidl and got me a celebratory octoberfest set, beer is rather 'meh' but BIG stein for use with decent beer.

    Yeah, I'm running at 20psi which would explain my longer piping 👍

    @meirion658 I've experimented with my keezer and have fixed on 15ft old money, (4.5m ish) 3/16" with 3/8" ends to suit. I tried other lengths but settled with the above. That serves larger, Weiss beer, IPA & ale well at around 3c - 5c

    @Banbeer it's Ben @bmass96 that is the proud owner of the new kegs, I'm just spouting random experience 👍

    Corny kegging (beginner)

    Hi Ben, personally I would over pressurise to allow for the gas dissolving into the beer, so for your 8psi I'd go for around 15psi. I'd tend to monitor by pouring a beer 😛 You can control the delivery by the way you pour to get a good beer, don't get too hung up on absolute psi values. If it...

    Corny kegging (beginner)

    Hi Ben, if you want your beer cold then it needs to go in the fridge. If you are conditioning the beer and you can get the required temperature without using a fridge, fine. I kegged a lager today, that's gone straight into the keezer as I want to cold condition it (and drink it....) Regarding...

    How many units per week. [POLL]

    As @Baz Chaz mentioned, I also had a cancer diagnosis that has focused my mind somewhat. I was not fit, just an 'average beer belly bob' for my age when I got the call. Bottom line was a 3 year prognosis, too late for a 'slice & dice' but managed to jump onto a drug trial which has kept things...

    Latest hobby - CNC router

    Thanks for the offer Andy athumb.. I'm working my way through the Lars Christensen's YouTube tutorials, time consuming but it's giving me a good grounding. Roll on the winter evenings when I can get some proper time to devote to it.
