    Cold Smoking

    Did a Cold Smoke of Gouda, Cheddar and Red Leicester today! (Beginning to feel a bit fitter!) I've photographed the process for anyone who is uncertain as to what it is! This is a photograph of the set-up I have using an old coffee maker, a small aquarium air pump, a couple of lengths of tube...

    Vaccine Problem?

    Apart from all the scare stories about the anti-Covid 19 vaccine, apparently there is an alcohol ban for up to one week before receiving the vaccine and up to two weeks after receiving the vaccine! According to what I've seen on the TV and what I have read on t'Internet a ban on alcohol is...

    Duttos off topic ramblings thread.

    Today, I give you Boris's groundwork for when his minions fail to produce the much needed houses that are required to stop the housing shortage in Britain. It's from today's BBC News which states: "The Prime Minister has been accused of inventing an allegation that wildlife rules are holding...

    Kenny Rogers R.I.P.

    Announced today that Kenny Rogers has died aged 81. Singer of such classics as "Coward of the County" and a long-time singing partner of Dolly Parton, he will be sorely missed! BTW When I read Kenny's age of 81 years I nodded my head thinking "He lived to a decent age then." before realising...

    Your views on how the Tories have handled Coronavirus.

    The title is self explanatory but to reiterate my own feelings: Handing money over to Businesses DOES NOT protect the workers. Other countries ensure that money is available to people who are sacked, paid off or otherwise thrown out of work. Why can't the UK do this? Agreeing on a "Mortgage...

    Seasick

    I've never been seasick; but I sympathise with people who suffer from the ailment. SWMBO had her head stuck in a waste-bin almost all the way from Portsmouth to St Malo last year, so at about 4am I asked if I could switch out the cabin light and go to sleep. This was because I had to drive for...

    Clearing a Brew with Time + Gravity

    Here are four photographs of four brews, all of which have received roughly the same treatment prior to being transferred to a Growler (normally followed by CO2 carbonation) or a PB (normal followed by a period of carbonation after adding sugar). One - A Wilko Light GoldenLager with Grapefruit...

    Buzz words.

    Surely, the latest annoying buzz word is "Pansexual"! Check out the Wikipedia definition here ... https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Pansexuality If you have an "emotional attraction" to someone, then you are displaying your "Pansexuality"! I must have been "emotionally attracted" to my parents...

    Rape?

    I though that this item from today's BBC News would be a suitable discussion for the Snug: "A man found guilty of rape after lying about having a vasectomy is appealing against the convictions. Jason Lawrence's convictions were thought to be the first of their kind and could have wider...

    I'm back!

    Hiya, It's been a hectic month or so and it won't get any better for the next couple of months! :confused.: It all started with a trip to visit aged relatives in the NW of England which was then followed by a week in Scotland where we stayed in the Scottish version of "Fawlty Towers" whilst...

    Cancer latest!

    I see on the BBC that, according to Cancer Research UK (CRUK), obesity now causes more cases of the four common cancers than smoking! What the people at CRUK don't say is that if we keep eliminating the more hazardous elements of life then obviously the cause of death will shift, along with the...

    Oh Boris! What have you done now?

    I appreciate that we aren't allowed to mention the dreaded "B" word but how about this link about Boris? https://www.bbc.co.uk/news/uk-politics-48445430 Apparently, Boris Johnson has been accused of "misconduct in public office" after making the claim that the UK paid £350,000,000 a week to...

    Global Warming and/or Climate Change?

    My only comment is that before I retired I wrote the UK and International Emergency Response Procedures for some of the largest oil and gas production companies in the world. I was NOT allowed to write “Global Warming” OR “Climate Change” in ANY of those Emergency Procedures that dealt with...

    "Signing Off" for a few months!

    It's that time of the year again. At the end of this week we will be heading for France so I am signing off for about 14 weeks because there is no wi-fi readily available in the small village where we stay when we're over there. If I am selected as a Candidate, I will come back to the UK at...

    Advice please!

    Advice please; and "Yes!" I know I'm breaking my "No experiments in 2019!" resolution but ... Before we head off to France I am looking to get a One-Can Wilko Lager Kit on the go, use Golden Syrup instead of sugar, ferment it at about 18*C for a week, rack it into a second FV, drop the...
