Beer O'clock is over here now, but it's almost dinner time so Rum O'clock won't be far after that.

Tomorrow morning I'll be bottling another 6 dozen longnecks of lager so I hope that there will be another frost so things in the brewroom don't get to warm while I'm working away.

Cheers.

Actually, I'm trying to cut down a bit on boozing. The recommended limit in the UK is 21 units a week for a man, I reckon I'm regularly knocking back 30-35. I have a special trip at the end of the month when any limits go out of the window, but I do need to generally cut back.

They reckon for a woman, the recommenced limit is 14 units per week. limits

Very roughly, 1/2 pint of beer or a small glass of wine is 1 unit, but many say the limits are too low and want then raised in line with other countries. Its also down to metabolism as well. I know some men that scan drink 6 pints and be perfectly fine, but I know some women that have 2 glasses of wine and get well pissed! It's all about common sense really, the odd binge for a special occasion say a wedding or birthday is fine, just not every day :-)

Here you drink as much or as little as you want.

2-4 beers for me at lunch aids digestion (2-3 rums before bed aids sleep). ;)

Cheers

Well, now that that is settled I'll head off into my brewroom and start bottling.

Another 2wks and I'll be fully stocked with lager again (all 38doz).

Cheers.

Nope, you can't scoff that lot on your own, no way! I therefore declare that it is beer o'clock at Wiggo's in a fortnight. You're all invited :-))

You may want to leave that for 2mths as the brews do need to age first (only 13doz are ready to drink ATM). ;-)

Hurry up and boil water so I can get started.

Cheers.

Well that's my sauna for the week done, now I just have to wait for the bottles to cool down a bit before rinsing and priming them for filling.

So Beer O'clock today will be a little late again today, but the wait will be worth it.

Cheers.

So, I read all this stuff about how if I drink X beers less per day I will live Y years longer. I'm not clear, Y years longer without beer: is that a reward or a punishment?

I can say one thing is the coldest winter I ever spent was in the winter of 1976 in up state New york. I froze my butt off big time, beer was easy to keep cold. :)) 26 f below zero with 65 mph winds and it seemed forever. I left as soon as I could and never been back.

No, you forget the Law of Conservation of Beer. By drinking a few less per week now, you live longer so you can drink that number of beers later....
