    Ball bags

    Now then gentlemen. It's one of the hottest sweatiest days of the year and I'm off for the snip... Any other "Decommissioned" men have any tips for me and my swift recovery? I remember my dad saying his swelled up like a coconut and he had crutches. But he may well have used a local farmer...

    Lazy brewing. Adding hops to kits.

    Anyone got any thoughts on fiddling with kits to make fancier beers? Due to a baby, time is at a premium at the moment. And the need for beer is at a high. I've been using different basic kits and then dry hopping the Christ out of them. It's surprisingly pretty good. What do people think...
