  1. It could be (and still may get) worse in a few years time.
  2. I went wild and have 6 Oktoberfest kegs…… in a pub, you’d be lucky to get cali for less than £6 a pint. They are basically a mini fridge that cocoons around the keg and keeps it at 3 degrees. The blade goes to 2 degrees. The beers are in a bag and are squeezed out by adding air into a chamber, creating a false atmosphere. The beer never comes into contact with air which means it’s guaranteed for 30 days. it does last longer, apparently……. The beers are different as they are keg fresh. And they taste significantly better than from a pub and a million times better than can or bottle. cost - around 1/3 more than cans or bottles. space - around the size of a bucket, but cuboid. The blade is much bigger.
  3. I used to be a lager lout…. But the the PD got me into IPA. I alway grab the Oktoberfest kegs for Xmas. There has been a few beers on limited release this year, all were great and more will come along. Unfortunately, after a few months of having these machines, you’ll begrudge going out, as it kicks the *** out of pub draft and when you’re paying £5+ a pint you’ll think ***.
  4. Le Trappe is 100x better than leffe. And I like it. Leffe is my next keg in. Good first choice, but swap the leffe, you won’t regret it.
  5. Space hopper (DIPA). Brewed in a Pinter and conditioned in a uflow. I suspect around 7% as I added spray malt and brewing sugar. Brewed for 10 days and conditioned for 10. In the mix Zipfer (lager) and crew republic drunker sailor (IPA).
  6. Hi mate. I’ve got a PD, Blade and Pinter. PD - depending on what you like. In rank order. IPA - Crew Republic - Drunken sailor (currently out of stock), Goose IPA, Jaipur. lager - Jupilar, Spatin, Stella. All the lagers are good. blonde - La Trappe, Leffe Blonde as a starter pack (in stock) go with - goose, jupilar and la Trappe next week 2 (limited edition) Oktoberfest beers are being released which are both OUTSTANDING Lowenbrau and Spatin Lots of online groups with offers / discounts. Watch for beershark, as they have good deals, but a limited range. Many local permier and costcutter stores also see them (limited ranges) as Beerhawk prices. Any other questions, just ask. You can drink cheaper, but all beers come direct from the country / factory. Eg Stella, isn’t the weak taxed stuff brewed under license in the UK, it’s the real ‘wife beater’ deal.
  7. 9/11. My grandma keeling over (dead) in the back of my car, when I was 17. Finding a USA passport (whilst shooting with my dad) from the Lockerbie bombed aircraft, the day after it happened.
  8. What do the wild cock fish taste like and what colour is the flesh. Are they similar to wild brown trout or closer to salmon? We only get farmed triploids in the UK that taste like mud.
  9. I cannot believe how balanced that is from the BBC.
  10. I had the same with factory loads express 28 bore (probably the same plastic). Express’ response was nothing to worry about, the plastics reaction occurs well after the shot and wad has left the barrel.
  11. I agree with the OP. Maybe a little cheaper, which is why there will be more silver pigeons Miroku MKs and browning 3/4/5/725 in use than any other shotgun (UK wise and probably much of the rest of the world). but it also comes down to the human desire for nice things, if I won the lottery I’d have a pair of boss ordered the next day (when my handover clears) as well as one of those Lamborghini SUV.
  12. Platinum. Dead cheap at the minute.
  13. Thanks for the input chaps. Really appreciate it. The family (with one older) is 4, although we would normally travel as a 3 and even 2 in a few years. The VW camper van isn’t for me, but I’ve looked (and was shocked by the prices). Current thinking is look out for a ‘nearly new’ one (when and if the prices drop) and just keep it as ours.
  14. I’ll not comment on any of your posts / thoughts and don’t value your input at all.
