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