  1. going down a hill

    I just bought a Keg Master Series 3

    It took me way too long to put it together, maybe because I started to late in the evening and I forgot to put the finishing collar on after i put the taps in so I had to strop it and redo. But I am now enjoying an Alt, Porter and a Scotch ale! Cheers

    I had a crap day at work and thought bottling would be a great way of losing the crap mood I was in. I ended up having a glass of it straight from the fermenter, it tasted great. Then I drank some more beer. Bottling can wait until the weekend.
