I used to claim that beer was my day-long obsession, joy and torment. These days there's less of the obsession and joy, and more of the torment. I haven't brewed in over two and a half years, after blowing the brew shed electrics when I wired up a switch incorrectly, while rushing to get a brew under way.
There is hope though. I have all the bits necessary (bar the bits for a power controller) to build a three vessel, 50 litre, stainless steel based brewery. I just need to get my finger out and get on with building it. Oh, and find an electrician…
I think a man ought to get drunk at least twice a year just on principle, so he won’t let himself get snotty about it.

The first draught serveth for health, the second for pleasure, the third for shame, the fourth for madness.
