    I'm an all or nothing person really, plus if I have a proper drink on Saturday it knackers my Sunday.

    Everyone's different.

    Hold the front page for the red wine discovery of the year.....
    Jam Shed Shiraz, Australia, 13.5%
    Don't confuse with:
    Jam Shed Malbec, Argentina, 13% (although very acceptable in its own right and the bottle labels are almost identical)
    Tesco et al, £7.
    John :)

    We've done a few kit homebrews, got this one to try next at some point.

    Even 4 pints for me will put me in a mood day or two later, it's an odd thing and took a while to work out. Plus a poor/ no nights sleep two days later.

    It's an alcohol tolerance thing.
    If you drink frequently, you develop a tolerance to alcohol.
    Infrequent drinking, even small amounts and you suffer for it, when you do drink.
    It's why alcoholics can appear totally sober even though their alcohol levels may be very high.
    Even non-alcoholics who drink a lot, and frequently, can drink that much without the 'drunken' appearance.

    I have one bottle of Spitfire each night when I sit down to relax.
    If I can get my hands on it I would drink a bottle of Lancaster Bomber Ale instead.

    I've been on both ends of it, could happily drink a 75cl bottle of Gin/ Brandy etc but does no good in the long term (for me anyway).

    Hardest bit is refusing a drink, feels some how rude!.

    I particularly like the way you've "distressed" your own coffee table, to make it look like one in the pub.
