    Ah, but you're not moving house! We don't have a date for the move but we are already down to two plates and a few bowls!

    I have a beautiful 700ml crystal tankard that I normally use but SWMBO has it "carefully packed", which probably means that she dropped it when wrapping it in a towel!

    I have the flagon because it was in the garage when SWMBO started putting stuff away, otherwise I would probably be drinking my beer out of a bloody tea-cup!

    Landlord AG clone, my first brew using a Corny keg. This forum got me to buy the keg good God what had I been missing. Started with plastic kegs which leak so bottled. Bottling great for most beer but I prefer Bitter from a keg.

    Going to brew up a 3 floyds zombie dust clone tomorrow, then get the thinking cap on. Stout, pale ale, esb, and probably another pale ale. Very imaginative

    First of many sacks to pass my threshold, will only buy same amounts of speciality grains from now on, £21 for 25kg, the local brew club is selling base grains at £2.30 a kilo

    Loving the buying in bulk grain sack, but how long does it last? Presumably you mill it yourself, so it lasts longer than pre-milled grain?

    This. Don't know whether it's just the situation, but it's nice and bitter, not much in the way of hop flavour, but SOOO much better than the Amstel, Heineken, Alfa etc etc that are also available here (in the Argolic Gulf)....

    It will last 1 month, currently don't have a grain mill... but I am off work, til october, so will be brewing at least 3 times in the next 10 days. One dipa, a zombie dust clone and an Esb, so reckon, I can knock a dent in the sack, possibly left with 7kg after the 3 brews.

    on the positive side even a tea cup is better than beer in a plastic cup. (unless your tea cup is made of plastic). I'm off to cardiff tomorrow with my son for a session and I had to check there's no matches or events there which means the pubs get the plastic out :eek:
    so tea and pop today and head of steam, tiny rebel & brewdog tomorrow. athumb..

    Looks fantastic!

    Any chance of the recipe you used? I love an Imp Stout, especially one with a quick turnb over time :)

    Milled grain will last a year if you keep it dry,in the dark in a sealed plastic bag.

    What's it like? Taste very much of port or sherry, not bad but going to have one of my own homebrews afterwards, I Shall enjoy that!
