    Right, well last night as I was awaiting for my lad to finish work, free lift home and all that... I popped into Weather spoons around the corner from his place, for a Porter, see photo below.

    Now, a year ago I'd have called this a very nice beer, and for only £1.99 it was sensibly priced. But because I have now gone All Grain home brewing, my expectation of purchased beer has moved up a notch. I have to say it was a disappointing beer. It was watery, there was no mouthfeel.

    I reckon I am now doomed to a life of brewing my own grog. (can that be a bad thing?)

    Couple of pints of Marston's Old Empire IPA - tastes reasonable, full mouthfeel for its 5.7% sock rockin' ABV, but quite an understated drink for an IPA, I expected more flavour.

    Followed by a sample of what's becoming my house ale - a twist on a GH Brown Ale that is bittered with American hops and flavoured with Challenger, yeast is MJ36 but you wouldn't know it. Easy to make, easy to drink.

    Old speckled hen clone type thing, after a month in the bottle, it is spot on, abit darker than the original. V2 will be lighter.

    It was actually last night but I wouldn't have been capable of typing this!

    Had a great night at the Tap & Kitchen in Oundle, Northamptonshire, which is attached to the Nene Valley Brewery. They have about 15 beers on, ranging from pale ales to stouts. I started last night with a couple of pints of 'Bump n' Grind', which was a coffee pale ale. It was really good. More like a lager, but with a very subtle hit of coffee a minute or so after you'd swallowed it. I then moved on to 'Hop Stash', which as the name suggests, is a light, hoppy beer which had me hooked for the rest of the night. Lovely pint.

    I've been there before and my favourite is 'Big Bang Theory', but unfortuantely, that was off.

    If anyone is ever in the area, I'd highly recommend it. Really nice atmosphere, excellent food and a great selection of beer. Nice in the summer too, as there are tables outside right next to the river.

    After rebottling my (originally very overcarbonated) rye stout, I thought I'd treat to my winter ale and a few other goodies.

    4 litres of Sainsburys cider because I want to try the last survivors of the Hombrewstromo with my mates and I know I'll cram them down without tasting them on my own.

    Oh, that is so not true!

    Only the other day I saw someone defending you on the Forum!

    I can't remember which Thread it was but someone (I've blocked him now) said that you couldn't "brew sh!t" (his words not mine) and a Member (obviously a friend of yours) defended you by saying "Yes he can! In fact Clint is famous for it!"
