    I should tack this to 'what am I drinking now' but I'm not sure!
    Is it just me or do any of you have the problem of waiting for a potential 'good' brew to come of age and while your waiting you sample 1 or 2 to test the progress. It finally hits it's date and it's good, then next minute, where the bloody hell did all my beer go?? I even accused the missus of having a cheeky few while I was at work!! (that's another story)
    Do you all find that once a brew is ready, it's difficult to keep some of it to let it really improve??

    Absolutely. I had to hide a few bottles of a sour i did a while back from myself. No way it would have lasted out in the open

    Gotta agree with this theory but had to go to 20's.
    Can't keep the wife out of it ;)

    Nope, but then I'm a lightweight - one pint per night is about my limit!

    To you sir I tips my hat, Nosybear! I do my best not to drink through the week but on Friday after work look out! And when the brew is good the handbrake fails!

    Same thing here, though I may end up in the 20's also. My missus is a big contributor to empty kegs too!!! :eek:
