Totally unconvinced by Canberra's argument!
He stated, 'Ale doesnt (or shouldnt) have hops in it' (two apostrophes missing from statement accepted)

Oxford English Dictionery - Ale - A beverage made from an infusion of malt, flavoured with hops or other bitters.

Don't tell me OED are wrong as well.

Cider used to have rats added for body - therefore If I buy a pint of cider today without the rat it can't be cider. Airfields never used to have hard runways - hence all modern airfields must be called something else. Come on guys things have changed and don't think I've ever bought a pint of unhopped ale..

Plan A is always more effective when the problem you are working on understands that Plan B will involve the use of dynamite :twisted:

I must be the black sheep of the family, I have never really liked beer!. My family has had a long history of being engaged on malting work. My brother is the last in the family to work as a Maltster at the last working malting in Stanstead Abbots. Being a Ware family, most have have worked in the local maltings for over two hundred years. I had a short stint as a malting labourer when I was sixteen.
I developed a strong liking for Bourbon instead, although now being almost teetotal. The one beer I do like now and again though is Adnams, although rarely do I have more than a pint, and that would be in two halves!

.. and the next stage of grain conversion is to turn the starch into sugar by steeping it at around 66 degrees - known as 'mashing'.

If your brother did this as well he'd be a Maltster Mash Link

Sorry :roll:,

Um... Er... I hesitate to dive into this murky pool, but, in the interests of historical accuracy I should say that I bought some Arkell's Moonlight beer a while back, & kept one of the labels. It states that 'Mr Peter' Arkell flew on special duties in WW2, & the beer was brewed to celebrate his 80th birthday, which would have been in 2003. Further research asserts that he was hospitalised for a year after crashing a Lysander in Burma, & that he died a few weeks ago at 87. He lived in Whelford village, hard by RAF Fairford.
The beer was very nice.
