    Who is More Sleazy - can you help me decide?

    On a pedantic note, it's not Prince Andrew anymore, just Andrew... Though if it was necessary to narrow it down, Nonce Andrew would do.

    Modern mild - am I really the only brewer who makes it?

    So, what is the origin of mild ale malt? Whenever I see an old recipe for a mild from Ron Pattinson et al, it always says pale malt. Even modern recipes don't often ask for it.

    Overnight Mashing ?

    Do you mean stronger but thinner beer?

    Who is More Sleazy - can you help me decide?

    I guess because his incompetence led directly to the death of thousands of people? Incompetence caused by a sense of entitlement and that the position he occupied was because of right rather than any desire to serve.

    Edward Colston statue case could be sent to appeal court

    He's trying to make Britain great again.

    Sloes go with ? Suggestions please.

    Elderberries and blackberries, though I don't know where you'd get them at this time of year. Maybe add them to a bag of frozen mixed berries?

    Edward Colston statue case could be sent to appeal court

    Exactly. Any "ordinary" person who thinks it's a good idea for the government to override courts is storing up trouble for themselves in a BIG way.

    Edward Colston statue case could be sent to appeal court

    What precedent? A jury listened to the current legal position and decided that the accused didn't break the law. Where's the problem?

    Edward Colston statue case could be sent to appeal court

    A good point, but as Clint pointed out, we can only learn and move forward, the buildings aren't an obvious memorial to the dirty money that helped to build the city but the statue is.

    Edward Colston statue case could be sent to appeal court

    Very true, but I'm not sure what you're suggesting here. This was a statue in a public place that didn't represent the opinions of locals. Ideally, it should have been shifted to a museum earlier and replaced with something a bit more worthy. We're not short of statues.

    Edward Colston statue case could be sent to appeal court

    So Colston made money from the slave trade and then used it to glorify himself through religious guilt. No place for a statue for someone like that in a public place. Plenty of more deserving cases.

    Edward Colston statue case could be sent to appeal court

    Political meddling in judicial matters is a worrying development. Smacks of Trump. Whatever your preferred verdict, it's been made so that's that. The only time when it's not is when the jury has been compromised or there's new evidence. Either way, this doesn't apply in a criminal damage case...

    600,000 demand removal of Sir Tony Blair's knighthood

    Very true, unless it involves a commercial organisation.

    600,000 demand removal of Sir Tony Blair's knighthood

    Am I being overly cynical here, or is this Blair knighthood thing a stunt to draw fire away from Johnson?

    When to bin hops

    Do old hops lose their bitterness as well? If not then they could be kept for bittering and new bought in for flavour/aroma.

    Covid - Plan B & Omicron

    It fits with the “law of declining virulence” and all that, so fingers crossed.

    Covid - Plan B & Omicron

    Aah. A 'do my own researcher'. I'll take my advice from qualified professionals, I think.

    Covid - Plan B & Omicron

    You just called a major pandemic that has killed many thousands of people (including some of my friends) a common cold. Grow a pair and accept that you have responsibilities as well as rights.
