  1. LaRit,

    congratulations on the job. Welcome back to the rat race ;)

    Nursing a rather nasty hangover. We won a darts league match against local rivals and got drunk as a lord on the new season bok beers.

    If anyone has internet paracetamol and a roll with square sausage and brown sauce I would be much obliged.

    ReplyDelete
  2. @deano:

    HP, obviously. There is only one brown sauce.

    @13thDuke:

    LOL, get well soon, mate.

    ReplyDelete
  3. HP does have the edge and it can be used to clean your teeth, if you have run out of toothpaste and Irn Bru, which I suppose also gives it added utility.

    Of course some folk swear by dried HP diluted with Irn Bru...


    The "new season bok beer" is a pleasure I have yet to encounter. Always good to have something to look forward to before dementia finally resolves the rage.

    Cheers guys - I'm away for the day.

    When do you start the new job LaRit and will you be able to be online at work?

    It’s also good for cleaning dirty coins and bringing the shine back to tarnished metal. And it tastes lovely.

    Truly a wonder amongst condiments.

  5. True some twats put Irn Bru on their sausage sarnies - but not me! I is a civilised animal both when drunk and when sobering.

    Won't be long to lunchtime Duke a man of your pedigree knows in his heart of hearts what the answer is.......enjoy you know it makes sense.

  6. "Truly a wonder amongst condiments."

    Hope Jay? is demob happy!!

  7. Thanks for the support swifty/deano. What was it Sinatra said?

    I feel sorry for people who don't drink. When they wake up in the morning, that's as good as they're going to feel all day.

  8. Tony Blair in line for Bad Sex Award Tony Blair's memoirs have been nominated for the Literary Review's Bad Sex Award.

    The least coveted prize in literature is traditionally awarded to novelists. However, the judges have made an exception for the former Prime Minister and his toe-curling reminiscences about a night of passion with Cherie.
    "That night she cradled me in her arms and soothed me; told me what I needed to be told; strengthened me," he wrote in A Journey. "On that night of 12 May 1994, I needed that love Cherie gave me, selfishly. I devoured it to give me strength. I was an animal following my instinct..."

    Brilliant, that snippet is definitely just what the doctor ordered for the Duke…

  11. Feeling a little like the Duke this morning after a good win at pool last night.

    Hobgoblin being the culprit - those little trolls certainly sneak up on you. I'm sure one beat me about the head last night.

    Just had a greasy makeover, was almost feeling human, till I read that vile post from Dave. Now stomach not quite as settled as it was !

    Cider-season approaches , firewood, veg garden, must go to ' work '.

    ReplyDelete
  16. Cider-season approaches..

    Allready under way. 56 Gallon barrel full to the gunnels two weeks ago. Purely organic method, and the first time we've attempted to make some fally down scrumpy.

    Estimated abv 7.2. Fermentation over, so next summer we are either going to have a load of cider vinegar, or just be legless for weeks on end.

    Cider, is it? I’m a fan of the occasional kir breton, I must say. Bonne récolte!

  18. tascia-- bloody hell that's fast fermentation .
    What is the SG now ?
    Have you thought of Sulfiting ?

    ReplyDelete
  19. Morning everyone, exam went as well as expected, which is to say it was a disaster, but never mind the relief of finishing almost makes up for the fact that I will have to resit in April if I don't want to have wasted my time.

    Good luck to Jay and congrats to La Rit.

    A few weeks agon Sheff advised me that you can make an interesting tincture by distilling Benylin.

    Any comments ?

    ReplyDelete
  23. Well Dave, we are all novices at this game. Use of tinternet to glean any pearls of wisdom so far has led us to the following:

    Leave the barrell open to the air to start fermentation. Air bourn yeast will hopefully kick start the process. [It did] leave open for two to three days [by this time a lovely foam is spewing out the barrell].

    Put Bung in. Leave till next year - keeping an eye on temperature.

    Our chief brewer did take the SG, (don't know what it was), and predicted the 7.2.

    None of us have discussed 'Sulfiting' as an option yet. Maybe I should raise this process at the next brewers convention down the pub tonight !

    ReplyDelete
  24. Jen. Have faith - good luck !

  25. BW - here was I thinking we are pioneers and adventurers in the brewing game, then you raise the fucking bar with Benylin.

  28. BW - Maybe we can get Sheff to bring a sample down with her next month. Could wipe out the entire UT following with it though !

    Sheff - got any hanging about ?

    ReplyDelete
  29. tascia -- Andrew Lea's book is pretty much the bible on craft cider-making, do you know it ?

    I used to do it all in one go into the barrel, and bottle at SG 1008 to 1025 (explosive....).

    Now I rack off from a plastic container, leaving behind the brown foam and the sludge , into oak or plastic .It'll still be fermenting so the foolproof way is an airlock . Bung firmly when it's stopped fermenting .

    The more air-contact the more risk of vinegaring !

    ReplyDelete
  30. Jen! o/

    Well done getting through the exam. Who knows, perhaps you did better than you think!

    GL to Jay.

    Re the nauseous Blair passage - I reckon it was ghost-written by Bracken. :-p

  31. Well done LaRit! & props to Jen for getting thru the exam, all the best for Mr Reilly.

    Hope some of the UT luck rubs off, as I'm down to my last 10 days of work. Tax rebate finally arrived, so won't starve, 'til November...

    What a great web site - Thanks for that link. A good few hours reading through that lot before taking newly gleaned knowledge to the Master Brewers Convention tonight !

    ReplyDelete
  35. tascia -- thought you'd appreciate it ! Andrew is the worldwide (anglosphere) cider-making authority.
    With the amount of energy invested picking washing crushing your 350 odd kg of apples, I'd recommend his c£10 book to get it right :)

    Around here ( opposite jersey ) we drink very little straight from the barrel, but bottle and crown-cork in 'champenoises', where it re-ferments to evolve further in taste and sparkle. Nothing like most of what the brits call cider -- which is glucose syrup and applejuice concentrate and water, and would get you into trouble with trading standards here !

    ReplyDelete
  36. From the Andrew Lea site:

    Traditional cider-makers used to hang a leg of mutton or a side of beef in the fermenting vat to boost the nutrient levels. The meat broke down slowly in the acid juice, releasing soluble amino nitrogen which the yeast could use for growth. The supposed requirement of a few dead rats in every vat is a more colourful manifestation of the same idea!

    I always thought the addition of a rat or two ee was for tourists only. An urban myth !

    ReplyDelete
  37. @ Dave

    One last question on the subject - is there more information in his book than is available on his web site ?

    He is a prolific publisher !!

    ReplyDelete
  38. tascia -- maybe it IS all on the site, but I don't regret at all having the book. Just so much handier.

    Cider-making is actually more complicated than winemaking and brewing, -- a fascinating hobby with a veryserious purpose, what more could you want ?

    ReplyDelete
  39. You lot in the UK think you've got problems with Blair's sexual references. Over here, we've got mummified-Mekon lookalike ex-president Giscard claiming to have shagged Lady Di. Now that really is due cause to be a little bit sick in your mouth.

  40. Berlin calling....just spent the day at the Bauhaus - completely wunderbar. Have been route marched about the city by the daughter and am now totally knackered and lolling on bar with free wifi. Hope all well. Speak soon

    ReplyDelete
  41. You are right Dave, a book is so much handier. So I've just bought a copy to pass on to our Master brewer. Mainly because I know he will prefer reading a book, rather than the web site.

    After reading his web site, I do believe that now our cider is in the hands of the microbes. It could go either way. May the Gods of alcohol production smile sweetly upon us !!

    Good luck Jay - you will be in full swing by now, though, I think.

    And Benelyn - when I was a teenager we used to drink bottles of benelyn to get high. Was sniggering the other day in Boots when I saw a suitably long-haired teenager asking for two bottles of it because he had a "really bad cough".

    I'm ashamed to say i always wanted to visit Berlin before the Wall came down and have found the idea less appealing since it did.(Am obviously glad that it did though.)Managed Vienna in the late 80's when it was a sleepy but affluent neutral backwater full of cream cakes and ferocious old ladies.Got stared a lot at which i put down to my stylish dress sense.We drove to the Hungarian border which was still im effect sealed then.Obviously weren't allowed to cross it.Vienna though had it's 'ghosts' which i put down to it's lost Jewish population.Anyways i hope you're having a good time.'Ich bin ein Berliner'!( I don't speak German but apparently mythology has it that when JFK said those words it sounded like 'I am a jelly doughnut')

  66. Evening all. Astonishing as it may seem to you, I find myself without a high-powered social engagement on a Friday night for the first time in about seventeen years! The countess was devastated that she had to cancel our discreet dîner pour deux at one of her family's castles, but I understand that if a Pekinese gets a slight chill on the chest then it can be quite serious, so I don't blame her at all.
    Unfortunately, all my usual chums are either in Antigua, Paris, Marrakech or El Salvador for the weekend so I'm at a bit of a loose end. It's an ill wind etc - so here I am!

    I understand that congratulations are in order to Jennifer, Jay and LaRit for various educational/work related activities - so very well done, you chaps!

    thauma, I never eat foie gras (it's so passé darling). And I heard that they force-feed the kittens with mashed sardines through a huge balloon so that their livers actually explode. It's terribly cruel.

  79. Dave - no he isn't a vegetarian but we do try and buy "happy" meat, even though it means we eat less of it cos it is more expensive. I am the evil one with the foie gras though...

  80. My thoughts on vegetarianism:

    Certain varieties of potato are smarter than cows.

    ReplyDelete
  81. BB - Eating less of it is a good idea at any rate ! Despoiling half the world to provide cow pig and chicken feed for the 'rich' is unsustainable .

    The Cheap Food argument is dépassé. That applied when say 30% of household income was on basic nosh, now it is far less AND also vastly inefficient and inferior.

    Back to Basics !

    We tried that argument with the lad, or a variation on it. When he first started his vegetarian ways at the age of about 9, and would complain about the poor lamb being taken away from its mother, we used to take the piss and say "Aww... that poor little baby carrot. It was all happy in the ground with its mummy and daddy til some evil person came along and wrenched it up, and now you're eating it..."

    Didn't convince him though.

    I'm putting in a word for Martyn - I was upset by his remarks to/about Paul - particularly as I had never encountered any racism in his comments previously.

    I don't always understand his comments but I don't think he is a nasty guy.

    This election season is truly depressing here in the US. Across the country, there are people who are batshit crazy, whose beliefs are somewhere to the right of Genghis Khan, who have a serious shot at winning their races.

    People who believe that abortion and the morning-after pill should be illegal, people who are convinced that flouridated water is a government plot, that the Civil Rights Act of 1964 was unconstitutional, that AIDS is a hoax (and, if they do actually believe that it exists, they think condoms do nothing to stop its spread).

    They have a very real chance at winning!!

    A few weeks ago Tybo was talking here about his books - I mentioned children of 'Christians' being punished as therapy.

    I first became aware of this when working with a very damaged little boy. Research led me to a movement in US known as 'Christian Domestic Discipline '. This has arrived here.

    I call it child and wife beating but the proponents call it spanking - between husband and wife it reads as sexual violence by agreement - fine between adults so why dress it up ar religion?

    One of the pastors says he believes in breaking the spirit of a child before the age of 12 months - so they won't defy God - which means the beatings start in babyhood.

    I don't know how widespread this is but I can understand how people treated this way from babyhood lose the ability to think for themselves.

  93. Leni

    I once saw a programme about spanking children for God. The parents would go and hit the child regularly during the course of the day, as you say, to try and "break their spirit".

    I can't remember the last time I saw something so utterly repugnant and distressing. These poor little kids would cower and start to whimper as soon as they saw the parent - usually the father, enter the room. Fucking animals.

    Actually, scrub that, because it is unfair to animals.

    It isn't just Christian fundamentalism, though. It's American fundamentalism -- and just like the Xian ones, the ironic bit is that they are totally wrong about what the country is meant to be.

    It is very scary - things are being turned on their heads and are presented as both rational and inevitable whereas they are travesties of the original intentions and values.

    Talking to these people is a nightmare. The parents of this little boy were convinced they beat him out of love and copassion - every second word they spoke was "Jesus". Each mealtime they laid an extra place at table 'incase Jesus called in ' - they seemed to genuinely believe they were doing the right and loving thing for their child.

    Political extremists are the same - even when they are damaging themselves and their children - reason doesn't touch them.

    It's like a collective hysteria or psychosis.

    ReplyDelete
  97. Montana -- very intellectual stuff about the various ideological fundamentalists, but until you can restrain yourself from very low attacks on Confused and Unhappy Martyn and delayed-adolescence Napoleon Karamazov, you have shown that even the politically "enlightened" can be personally imperfect ?

    There is a lot of misdirected aggression around . . .

    ReplyDelete
  98. Fucking hell, dave. When have I ever made any claim to being perfect? Have you been paying attention? I'm foul-mouthed, short-tempered and intolerant of people whose views I find repugnant or find shallow or stupid.

    But very low attacks on Martyn & Nap? I've never wished cancer on anyone, I never use racist epithets or words like "chav" to dismiss people about whose lives I know nothing.

    Sorry -- but I don't regret anything I've ever said to either of them.

    ReplyDelete
  99. Montana --I can't be bothered to trawl back and find the most awful post you made to Nap, but it was as evil as Martyn's to Paul. More so , because Nap is very young for his age and it would have hurt more .

    So, you've forgotten what you said .

    You were not drunk, but you might just as well have been . Writing a load of aggressive shit, and then forgetting it , is pretty goddam irresponsible .

    ReplyDelete
  100. Dave,

    I do remember pretty much what I said to Nap. Still don't feel bad about it. He's not really all that young -- 22 or somewhere thereabouts -- plenty old enough to have a bit more empathy and a hell of a lot less snobbishness about people who are in circumstances not very much different from his own.

    He's always making excuses for himself -- why he can't get a job, why his life is the way it is -- but then feels perfectly justified in looking down his nose at others in similar circumstances.

    He reads Russian literature, so his problems are beyond his control, but those nasty chavs -- it's their own damn fault that they can't get work. You are aware that he has said that on here -- quite frequently. He did learn quickly not to actually refer to these people he so despises as "chavs", but the attitudes are still there.

    His hypocrisy and lack of self-awareness are breath-taking and his age is no fucking excuse -- he's an adult, not a child.

  101. "Paul accepted his apology and that, for me, finishes it"

    That's alright, Leni, I hope you don't mind if it doesn't "finish it" for me?

    "I can't be bothered to trawl back and find the most awful post you made to Nap, but it was as evil as Martyn's to Paul. More so , because Nap is very young for his age and it would have hurt more ."

    Dave, don't be a dick.

    ReplyDelete
  102. And just to clarify --

    I don't for one moment mean to suggest that Nap's employment issues are his own fault. I just think he ought to consider that other people might have reasons every bit as valid as his own.

  105. Dave, I should explain. It is entirely acceptable to criticise someone for their belief systems and be criticised in return.

    If you feel it is reasonable to criticise someone for the colour of their skin, then we part ways, full stop.

  106. heyhabib " Dave, don't be a dick. " You are missing the point sunshine, I wasn't looking for a fight with Montana, I was just having a respectful disagreement with her .

    My point is that very few people are perfectly formed Adults at the age of 22, 32, 62, whatever, and young Nap is but a poor suffering human being .

    He is a lost soul, but not Evil, surely ?

  122. That's the fucking truth right there MW

    BTW

    Andrew Brown says only religion could have inspired Bach's masses.

    And then you read that Vaughan Willims said "an atheist could write a mass to equal any other".

    Tricky for the knob-heads, that one.

  123. Montana " I'm pretty damn sure I never said he was Evil. Not even evil. "

    Yeah , but you've conveniently forgotten what you did actually say. It was very destructive .

  131. Ah well, Montana has forgotten the most deeply unpleasant thing she last said to Nap, so it never happened ! Frankly it was vicious . And as Montana is rather proud about her outspokenness, it was quite in character .

    But I'm not going to waste some life trawling for that particular example in google.

    NN to all !

    I was teasing you, you prick. Here's the thing then.

    Why not back up your lazy and hurtful allegations you cunt ? Why ? Because you can't.

    So either shit or get off the pot.

    Like I said, if it's too fucking difficult to address in public, email me.

    You have the address; the rest is trolling. As well you know you lazy minded man.

  140. Not a flame war, Dave? You're saying that I was "vicious" and that that is entirely in character for me, but you're refusing to back up/substantiate the accusation in any way.

  143. dave

    Are you thick?

    No. I've just re-read your post at 00:59 - funnny

    You basically accused her of finding fun in crushing people. Then later

    "Montana --I can't be bothered to trawl back and find the most awful post you made to Nap, but it was as evil as Martyn's to Paul."

    Prove it; or why torment Montana like that ?

    Are you dim ? Or is it just a bad night for you, as you suggest ?

    ReplyDelete
  144. Montana , Madame,

    You are an outspoken lady who when you go into the attack, you go full out .

    Agreed ?

    I described just one of your attacks, on Nap, as 'vicious', which does not mean that for now and forever more that I consider YOU as a vicious and evil person . One action does not necessarily define anyone for life, thank God .

    I could probably do a 'vicious" attack on someone we all hate, doesn't make me a vicious person for ever ?

    ReplyDelete
  145. Woops, maybe we're all having a bad night ? Just a thought .

    ReplyDelete
  146. Oh, I get what dave in france/ frog2 is doing ! He's BORED.

    Montana's post was whippingly, slap accross the face harsh, but fair considering the boy's repugnant comments about people < 100 IQ and = poor.

    Dave said "Martyn calling someone who disagreese with him a house nigger is the same as Montana calling a kid a fucking idiot for calling his working class peers cunts".

    Jesus frog, why did you do that to yourself ?

    Send that cider over here. It's wasted on the French.

  147. Bad night ? Slap yourself man.

  150. I described just one of your attacks, on Nap, as 'vicious', which does not mean that for now and forever more that I consider YOU as a vicious and evil person . One action does not necessarily define anyone for life, thank God .

    Really? 'Cos that's not how things have been reading to me. For one thing, you originally included Martyn in the list of my recent victims. Perhaps the reminder of what it was he'd said made you realise that he wasn't exactly an innocent target, because you seem to be wanting to forget about that now.

    And this (emphasis added):

    Frankly it was vicious. And as Montana is rather proud about her outspokenness, it was quite in character.

    reads to me like you think that I am generally of a vicious character.

    That was somewhere in between pusillanimous and vacuous; frankly I'm not sure which I'd be the least proud of. Suggest you go away and rethink your strategy for taking Queen.
