"Critical Mass" is when you're down to your last 100 or so litres and you can see bare wall where the stacked crates should be! This triggers a frenzy of activity of pressing every available vessel including the dog's bowl into brewing more, wild and panicked ordering of sacks of grain and obscure hops and a general suspending of all non-essential activities such as gardening and decorating. Bring in on.I am now getting over the move and building up stocks to a suitable level. With 60 litres in PB's and Growlers (Lager, Stout, IPA and Newkie Brown) and 20+ litres (Bitter) in the fridge I am nearly at "Critical Mass"; so the next brew should follow the 2+2+2 system and after that I should be able to sit back and take a bit of time to enjoy the fruits of my endeavours!
You sound like a happy bunny. Nice to read of someone enjoying life. Good for you.28 degrees in the sun this afty, Dutto. Did a bit of gardening and had to strip down to the vest. Struggling in jeans, but knew too well that the temp would drop 10 degrees as soon as a cloud passed over.. Morning started off at minus 3 on the terrace, though. Glorious sunshine and magnificent sunset. It's a joy to be alive. terribly worried it may be too late to brew the last couple of pilsners I wanted to get done, though. Ordered two bags of malt on the strength of the fact that all pubs and cafes are closed. Money. Use it or lose it, I say.
