    What are you drinking tonight 2020 (part two)

    Fortunately! Had one of my latest to numb the pain 🥳- son was round the corner and thought it safer to go home with him than take a trip in an ambulance. That is my first and hopefully last collision with a vehicle in over 40 years of cycling. getting to sleep will be fun - it's 26 in the...

    The Coronavirus thread.

    It does seem strange but imagine your country is uber poor there'll be no money for heathcare. A successful economy has the potential to allow a well funded health service. Whether it does or not is a different matter. So if the economy gets trashed how can we afford the NHS. I'd have thought a...

    Your views on how the Tories have handled Coronavirus.

    I'd just like to point out that i'm already p155ed as I've been bottling my 6.83% neipa and as the law stated you must drink hb when bottling. However. even in this state I can recall dyson is not making ventilators for uk Govt, that was cancelled (they had enough) and they were clearing the...

    Galaxy and simcoe

    100g galaxy dry-hop is my usual amount. I love it but I'd not boil 100g of most hops for 60 mins

    Xmas Beer

    you could also punch the numbers into a brewing calc tweeking water to get the og & fg to match up their figures or the abv% and that should tell you the water required?

    Your views on how the Tories have handled Coronavirus.

    I have a visceral disdain for the msm. and a large section of the public. As we've seen on the forum there have been plenty of idiots and the like. What suprises me is the Govt. seem to believe everyone is smart (or dumb enough - depending on your view) to follow their instructions. I'd say...

    Star San is back

    I had a nightmare last week about star san - the little I had left was spilled and it dissolved the whole house. That will teach me to mix belgian quads, dipas & strong cheese before bedtime 😰

    Your views on how the Tories have handled Coronavirus.

    Hmm.. this is why I hold the press in low regard.. plenty of non-social distancing there, unless all the photographers are brothers or living in the same household in

    ta for the video. "It's not about how it looks its about doing the right thing." That quote reminded about an employers meal allowance when on a training course. Alcohol is not allowed to be refunded even if taken with a meal or as part as an offer, so we worked out I would buy a meal with a...

    Your views on how the Tories have handled Coronavirus.

    If I had no safe childcare and I thought I was going to to come down with covid because my mrs was showing symptoms AND my parents had an annex to their house where I could self isolate then I would drive to get there. I would make sure I had a good pee and some food for a break without having...

    Checking fermentation

    if you use an empty plastic fizzy drinks bottle for one of the beers you can feel it carbonate as the bottle goes rock hard.

    Will you drink in Wetherspoons when pubs re-open?

    Believe me its the best pace to drink locally for some distance the other pubs would have a minus food rating on them if that score were allowed. They are real scummy holes. I'm more likely to boycott Chinese goods than avoid spoon's if they re-open.
