The Rain in Spain

A quick post taking advantage of the lull in the proceedings of the arrival of FVs (fermentation vessels) 23, 24 and 25. By Thursday these 3 x 45,000 pint FVs will be full of fermenting Doom Bar and Honey Gold. We seem to have come a long way in a short space of time. A couple of months ago FV installation was undertaken by me, the crane driver, Captain Chaos and a big hammer. Today we have a team of 10 blokes with hard hats, high viz vests and clipboards scurrying around with laser rules and spirit levels.

I was delighted, thrilled, excited and enchanted to learn yesterday that my beer (Chalky’s Bite) has been chosen from a 25 strong shortlist for serving with the starter at the All Party Parliamentary Beer Dinner in July. It’s the second time I have had this honour but this time, work allowing, I will be attending. I have been invited along for the last three years only to have to cancel at the last minute due to an issue in the brewery. I hope it’s third time lucky this year. I have downloaded a "how to speak posh in three weeks" audio course so I should be fluent by mid July.
