I'm Tom. My first brew was 47 years ago, which sounds impressive. However, my last was 41 years ago. For the last 22 years I have been living in the land of Blanche, Dubbel and Abbey. With retirement coming up I am getting ready to brew again, with the intent of brewing lighter beers. I'm now finding that Belgian beers are too strong for my taste - the best part of a trip to England is being able to drink more than a litre a night, so I'm looking forward to brewing a decent pint of bitter.
