This year is the 25th anniversary of the founding of Barnsley Harriers and so I have decided to engage in a little bit of sponsorship. Saturday the 27th February saw the first event in a series of events to mark the anniversary, this was a 3 person relay so I sponsored a team to participate.

Been having trouble with the brewing equipment this week, the 18KW heater on the copper has stopped working, this is a bit of a disaster because it now takes forever to boil up the wort. What shgould have taken a couple of hours on Tuesday took nearly 5 hours so it was rather a long brew day. I have purchased a replacement and I am trying to get it replaced this week, so g=fingers crossed we should be ok after that.

Not all chemicals are bad. Without chemicals such as Oxygen and Hydrogen, for example, there would be no way to make water a vital ingredient in beer.
