Just finished listening to 'Tasting Beer' - Randy Mosher. I found it very interesting, especially the historical parts and the food pairing. A physical copy would be great to have on hand.

Reckon the ol liver deserves a rest for a few days. Four of those 'unplanned nights that turn into big ones' in a row and I'm on the waters for a bit.

    Camping trip cancelled, Main cable in the Jayco Dove snapped (in the driveway thank fuck) causing the roof to come down. Can't get a new cable till Monday at the earliest. Ah well, got Beers & Gin and the beach is at the end of my street.

Wives can be expensive at times, I'm glad I've only got the one.

    Most miserable man I've ever seen, old dude on bus in Morocco. Nagged at in stereo all the way from Marrakesh to Fez.

    I agree with Malt Junkie! It's not the wives that are the problem

If you need a steak knife to eat your steak with then you've done something wrong.

    That's why I never let mrs warra cook the steaks. I cook hers, do mine for a short time at the end, so hers is poo ,sorry, brown all though, mine is red/pink. Beautiful.

Phase one of the brewery build has began! Nearly finished building a loft in the garage to store all the wife's crap so I can have some space to brew and play tunes on my Strat.

    thread with pics is a certainty, as soon as the sparky gets back from Norway around mid Feb the real action will begin.

Been drinking beer and watching my hops gently sway in the breeze for the last hour, it's right on Par with drinking beer in front of the fire.

    if you have enough beer the hops will gently sway with no breeze.

Just reopened a pack of Mandarina Bavaria I first opened 3 weeks ago (not purchased from any current AHB sponsor/affiliate) in preparation of a dry hop addition & got an unmistakable whiff of cheese, might be my storage methods but I've never had the "Cheese" smell before. Is Mandarina more prone to cheese than other varieties perhaps?

    First time I've ever bought Mandarina Bavaria, could have been a bad batch but I've never had issues with hops from this particular store. Ah well, now I know what oxidised hops smell like.
