    Tea. I've been cranking about 75 units a week for 3 years so I'm giving it a rest for a while. What a cheery start to this thread.

    It’s going to be a hoppy new year for me.
    I’ve got lined up Galaxy Amarillo and Mosaic, which is gorgeous, some shop bought Shipyard Rye, Mosaic IPA which is just 5 weeks old and lovely and some Cali Common just to make sure I don’t go hop blind. :beer1:.

    On the Wherry again, with time off now, waiting to find out if local homebrew shop is open/remaining open, or where nearest one will be....

    phew - I thought I was partaking a bit to much...

    average units per week according to my alcohol consumption spreadsheet... :rolleyes:

    49.2 - 2019
    46.8 - 2018
    37.3 - 2017
    46.4 - 2016

    I read a WHO report a few years back that said:
    under 35 units a week = low risk to health
    35 - 53 = medium
    53+ high

    I should have downloaded it because I can no long find it. It was a really big report but suspect it was taken down due to political pressure.ashock1

    anyways, my aim is to get back to under 40. Only way I can figure how to do that is start drinking brewdog, stop drinking belgian ales, dipa's and imperial stouts and stop brewing my usual monsters. But as for not drinking.... no chance. athumb..

    Muntons hand crafted American style ipa seems to be more like an plain ale not loads of flavour but a mild fruity taste easy pint to swallow lol

    Hyde and Wilde mango ipa. Was looking forward to trying this but it tasted weird for weird's sake - not to my liking...

    We are having our 'day after boxing day' today after work got in the way of the real thing... 'Cold Turkey' [comedy festive pun] golden ale I was given for Christmas whilst watching films with my good lady. This was actually quite reasonable but a little too sweet for my liking, not bitter enough. On to some homebrew next...

    Having an update taste of my Belgian Cherry ale whilst planning Saturdays brew. Few weeks on and flavours started to mellow a little. That said think the carbonation has dropped so maybe that explains the reduction in bite.

    Not bad, but I think it is better when not aged this long. It does have a bit of a wet carton taste, which is of course a pity.
