    I don't see anything unusual about swinging in a park.

    I remember those Wembley pics at the back of your house Punt and your new shed lol, it looked quite tranquil at the time.

    Been off the ale for a while but I'm gradually getting back up to pace. Was in York for the Ebor a few weeks past and the ale was amazing. Tried so many different (and new) ales I thought I'd died and went to heaven. Samuel Smiths ales were fantastic. We are still in the dark ages up here for ale wise (esp in the area I stay).

    I'm digging out the bowls this weekend for the annual pub league competition and at the local bowling club it's held at sell 'house' lager. Don't know where they get it from and the first couple of pints are a tad harsh going down but once they've settled it grows on you. (For £2 a pot it not bad)

    I used to like Sam Smiths too Keggers but it doesn't half do my guts in, £2 a pop ain't bad at all, best you'd get around here for that is a wetherspoons who like to do guest ales for around that price.

    Is the sun shining too?, I'm sure Wins lives in the twilight zone.

    I've just opened a can of best before Aug 06 Boddingtons bitter.
    It's been in the back of my works fridge (unnoticed) until a few weeks back when I was moving office, spotted it and shoved it in my bag to take home,

    Keggers talking about Sam smiths reminded me it was there so I've just opened it to see what effect being out of date for 8 years will have on it if any.

    It's one of those widget jobbies and my first thoughts were it's not going to 'hiss' when I pull the ring pull, but it did and poured like a beauty, lovely head to boot just like a fresh can.

    Tastes alright too, slightly 'tinny' but that's to be expected I suppose but other than that it's a lovely taste, does beer get better with age? or is it a question of 'don't come crying to me in the morning' like the wife just said.

    4 cans of Guinness and a couple of single sheeters tonight. A midweek blow out. That's rare for me as i never drink between Sunday night and Thursday, Cheltenham Festival and Christmas aside.

    The frost has gone from the glass and it now looks cloudy, maybe this ain't a good idea after all, saying that my now deceased (god bless him) father in law once said 'there's no bad beer, just some taste better than others'
    I'd like to believe him but not when I've still got a week and half hols off work to go.
    Fcuk it, I've supped three quarters of it for testing purposes, the rest can go down the sink.

    lol, that's what the wife just said.

    It didn't taste that bad Punt, in fact it didn't taste bad at all, I've tasted worst beer in pubs, I wouldn't say it was off (bad smell and all that) but it may well be chemically hence the reason it's now gone down the sink

    You put worse shit into your system if you've eaten a big mac slick so you'll be ok.

    I'm going to start making my own homebrew. Got a kit for my birthday so watch this space.

    Anybody else tried making it ?

    Good luck with it Kegs.

    A mate of mine did it, he made some 5.8% ale earlier in the year, he drank a bucket load one day and went on a drunken rampage, smashing up his home. He woke up and had no recollection of what had happened the next day!

    Careful!

    Funny you should say that because I was thinking of doing the same thing myself, didn't Kinky post up a few weeks back saying he's into it?
    I'm pretty sure he left a link that this thread has just reminded me I needed to check out.

    I used to make my own wine many moons again but it was a lot of faffing about with demi johns and stuff, plus it was other people that seemed to drink the fcuker. I hardly got a sniff in.

    Strongbow Cloudy Cider. Had a mouthful of this at the weekend (as i was on call) and it tasted very nice. Got 10 cans chilling away so I'll blow the froth of a few this weekend. Worth a shout if you get the chance :beer

    Ehhm sounds good.
    Can't say I've seen it around these parts Keggers, I'll keep my eyes open for it.

    I've still not had a look into brewing my own ale either yet, might get something set up for Christmas.
