Yeah, I spent way too long deboning and stuffing a duck. Thank goodness for YouTube guides. With a grain allergic child, chocolate soufflé with cornflour was a great Xmas pud substitute. Put a dry rub on a brisket for smoking tomorrow too. Have had worse Christmas days.
Time for biab
After getting back into home brew, it’s time to have a crack at an all grain recipe. SMaSH and all that. Aiming for a pale ale. Something really simple because I just want to concentrate on doing it, not on technique. Very happy to have seen kits-and-bits make stuff way better than what I used […]

Do pictures work with the new WordPress editor?
Woohoo! Let the pointless cat photos flow!
My girl is growing up
