    I agree with the Baron. Looks like a nice best bitter.
    It's about time I had a good clear-out, too.
    Might make a curry.

    Thats what I'm hoping for :)

    Pitched this afternoon at 1046 & 28C. So far so good. Minor mishap with my cooling setup but 5 mins had a quick bodge in place. Needs sorting for next time.
