Any room for 1 very late attendee?

Very kind of you to switch your points over to ACME, and then I'm sure OD can add you to the list for next week.

The Eastern View is very booked next Wednesday but we should be okay. However I need to know exact numbers so please can you confirm your attendance?  Rather than clog up this thread can you PM me or text / message me. Thanking you.

I think so just waiting for OD to confirm the booking I guess....

I can't decide if to fit the spiked tyres or not... Not as easy when the wheels are set for tubeless!

Yeah that's my reading of the forecast but it's still a couple of days away yet. Plenty of black ice out tonight...

The booking is confirmed. But if this icy stuff is still about I won’t be riding, I’ll drive over and forgo beers but still enjoy the sprouts.

If the weathering forcast is to be believed it will be warmer (not warm just warmer) and moist.

*** Be a Brewer for the Day update  :thumbsup: ***

The Oatmeal Stout that we brewed is ready for collection in minipins at the end of the week so I'll make a trip over to Southminster on Saturday to collect 5 minipins.  All of the brew has been sold to local publicans, Abby is to advise where they may turn up on tap, the Hurdlemakers is a distinct possibility.
Abby has offered that if anyone due to minipin but for unspeakable reason would prefer not to have our own brew for their Christmas cellar they can swap it for one of these other Wibblers brews:
IPA, Apprentice, Gold, Dengie Devil, Festive Star or Vanguard.
I must say I'm very tempted to buy a minipin of Vanguard as I quite enjoyed sampling that in the brew house.  If any additional orders or swaps are required then they need to know by Thursday to get them ready and bright for Saturday collection.
Anyone that didn't attend the excellent Brewery Experience but would like to buy a Wibblers minipin from the above selection can do so and I'll collect on Saturday, let them/me know by Thursday.
Once in my possession I can drop off or your box can be collected.  (Arrangement for psyclist TBA)

Rode over to Marks Tey today....I really hope it does warm up! The B road was OK but there was a fair bit of ice along the side of it and as for Church Lane.....it was a very slow lowest gear ascent with the odd wheel spin to keep things interesting.

Seeing the sun out today I suspect things should improve, just hope the overnight temp doesn't dive as much again.....

It got down to below -4 last night here and it's still not above freezing... I hope it does improve for tomorrow, forecasts have been a bit optimistic for the last couple of days compared to reality !

I'm sure that bit in brackets wasn't there earlier ... I was counting my lucky stars  :)

I've just determined the weight will be approx 10 kilos, so well within the limits of my bike trailer. However, I'm not sure it would be wise to transport the beer via the trailer, as it'll get a bit bashed around on the lanes.

Wrap it up in a sleeping bag / duvet ?  It will need to settle any how when you get home?

Assuming the weather has improved and the ice has cleared is it 1900 at the spa roundabout?

My plans have changed slightly and I will be back later than expected from London.  And I hate the prospect of cycling on ice having badly hurt myself some years ago.  I don't mind missing out on beers but don't want to miss curried sprouts so I'm going to drive to Coggeshall.  Would anyone like a lift?  I can taken 4 of you.

Hi Each,

I'm going to be a no show tonight as my lurgie is getting the better of me.  Apparently cycling in -4C all day DOES make a cold worse :facepalm:

Have a good one
