  1. When you've done the dishes, drain the water into a barrel and throw some yeast in - Instant Hobgoblin clone!!! Only kidding - Can't stand the stuff now. Another beer where they seem to have changed the recipe and not for the better - Same as Ruddles County and Marston's Pedigree. If you want to go all grain, maybe look at brew in a bag - Much smaller batches, so less outlay, but you can mess about with different recipes and styles
  2. Like that - Love their cover of Orgasmatron as well
  3. Some of the airgun bits are a little hard to sit through, although slightly better than camomile tea and counting sheep at getting me to the land of nod
  4. My local reservoir, Hanningfield, is now open.....and booked solid.....
  5. Old Pork Pie Shoppe in Melton is good, but i reckon Leeson the butchers in Oakham pips them to the post - Especially the Stilton and Chilli Jam version
  6. Couldn't you just supply the tenants with socks and jumpers?
  7. https://www.bt.com/tv/documentary/seaspiracy-netflix-truth-facts-ali-tabrizi-stop-eating-fish Maybe not as cut and dried as that
  8. Ham and pickle - Not my favourite, but you want something you can put down in a hurry and a triple stacked club with maple bacon and smoked turkey will invariably end up a soggy mess on the floor
  9. Many years ago, my stepdaughter's boxer ate through the kitchen wall while she was out - In typical boxer fashion, he ignored the gate that he could have pushed over or jumped over and ate his way through a breeze block and plaster wall!
  10. When i looked a few years ago, the increase in price vs volume just didn't justify it for me, unless you're deliberately after a nice shiny set up - Are you doing kits or all grain?
  11. You can get a 50 pint fermenting bucket in Wilko's or the Range for around a tenner
  12. It's sort of a good idea, but not sure it's of any real practical use - You now your boundaries and you know your sweet spots where and when you shoot. Would have thought recording it like this doesn't really tell BASC very much either, but it would give locations, quarry and frequency of visits to any anti who managed to breach the database. Based on what i have seen of anti behaviour, i would think they would have a horde of nerds queueing up to be the one to bust through.
  13. Daft question, but bear with me!! Having spent an absolute fortune on seeds this year because i can't find my leftovers from last year, is there any reason why i can't just buy a bag of mixed chilis from Tesco, harvest the seeds and dry them out? Do they need to be dried or can they be planted fresh out of the plant?
  14. Acme 211.5 is recommended for labs
  15. You've just got to get through it (but make sure you still have plenty of fuel!). Lockdown has been kind to me in that WFH i can do long smokes regularly and i can finally make a brisket that wobbles
  16. I've never managed to maintain temperature in an offset - Great for grilling and for a quick smoke up, but if you're looking at a long cook on a brisket or a pork shoulder i think vertical is the way forward
  17. Likewise - It doesn't seem like fly fishing when you just sit waiting for a take - Like float fishing without a float (Don't mention the bung!!)
  18. Where do you stick the mop handle then? Enjoy her and get yourself out on some good long walks
  19. Have a look at an Airflo or Shakespeare kit - You after trout or salmon? Salmon needs (arguably) a bigger rod. What sort of rivers are you looking at - Rods and line are measured using the AFTM scale - You want a 3 or 4 on a chalk stream for trout, a 7 in a reservoir and a 9 for the Dee or the Spey. The action itself is all a question of timing, loading the rod at the right time so that when you finish your back cast, the line is ready to whizz forward on your forward cast - It takes a bit of time to crack, but you'll be semi decent in no time
  20. Probably my favourite animal - Absolutely comical creatures
  21. I got lucky with my new pup - After several opportunities fell through, one of the fellas i shoot with had a litter and while not exactly cheap, he at least used a bit of lube!! If you're happy to have your pants pulled down on price, that's fine, but breeders can't keep up with demand and every other doodle owner i talk to over the park is looking at breeding their mongrel with another mongrel at the earliest opportunity to get on what is a very lucrative bandwagon. Think my advice for anyone would be to wait a very short while - Battersea is going to be absolutely chock full of rej
  22. Based on past performance, he'll make you a fortune and then lose it all for you just before you need it
