    Has anybody tried to use Weather Bagel recently? I've been trying through the week to check a ride for the weekend and keep getting an error of 'Could not process route, please try again.' have tried across a couple of devices/browsers with a few different GPX routes and always the same. Would be a shame if it's a long running issue as I find it very useful. https://www.weatherbagel.com/

    My fermentation has definitely taken off over the last couple of days, had some water blow out of the airlock yesterday and it's almost constant bubbling today. Quite high on the temperature again annoyingly, the optimal temperature range for the yeast is between 15c to 22c but it's up at ~24c it looks like but nothing that I can do about that at the moment.

    Haven't looked at that yet but will check it out at lunch probably. One of the smallest changes that has had the biggest impact for me is that it works with Quick Resume on the Series X now which I'm not sure I could live without for any games.

    Have returned to No Man's Sky to give it another go after I didn't get far with it about 6 months ago. Enjoying it a lot more this time and really getting into it.

    Would recommend Crumble Mania on New Cross Road.

    Should this tag have us all quaking in our boots?

    Delicious looking cake too.

    After what felt like a successful first brew in a bag day on Saturday I left my wort to cool in an HDPE Jerry can (doing the no chill method) for a couple of days and have transferred it to my fermentor bucket and pitched the yeast today. It’s a little darker than I’d been looking for but that’s fine, might lighten up over fermentation. Was aiming for an OG of 1.051 according to the recipe calculator but came out at 1.055 which I’m also ok with as it’s all just experimenting for me at the moment really. No idea if the wort is a good representation of the end taste but there’s a somewhat harsh bitterness that may make the whole batch a bit tricky to drink at the end.

    After my one kit brew I decided to go for it with the next step. Used some of my recent work bonus to venture into the BIAB. Hope I get on ok. Completely random recipe I just messed around making on an online recipe maker so it could all taste crap at the end but I’m sure fumbling around with stuff is exactly how our ancestors made their beer too right.
