It was my Friday off today. Spent recipe fiddling for the final tweaks of the book. The ISBN came in today. A little more recipe rustling, a boot up Alexei's arse to do the cover and I'll be ready to rock and roll the book out to the publisher. Me, in this case. unless a real one steps out of the shadows.
Evening now. I would chat, but i'd quite like to watch something on the telly with Dolores.
Watery IPA, simple grist, English hops (but that's a guess because there's no mention of the hops in the record). Nothing much particularly Scottish, save for the simple mashing scheme.
