I trust Dolores to that because I've trained her. Milk in first, the civilised way.

Love that beer. You didn't pour it very well, mind. All in one go, 1 cm of yeasty shit left in the bottle.

I watched the Scotland - England qualifier in an Edinburgh pub. I was sensible enough not to talk this sort of shite.

Spent the morning writing early 1960s Watney recipes. Not sure how to account for the 10% ullage blended in.

Nope. It's been between 2.7% and 3% ABV since WW II,

That would have been on the label.

Homebrewing was always legal. You just needed a licence.

Yes, obviously. Though the label did say who had bottled it.

Beer for bottling was usually sent out in hogsheads (54 gallon barrels)

It was also about getting your beer into other brewers' tied estates. Bass & Guinness, by letting brewers bottle their beer were effectively giving them a cut pf the profits.

Because bottling was expensive and a lot of fuss. When I lived in Leeds in the 1970s, all the Guinness was bottled by Musgrave & Sagar, a former brewery that went over to bottling.

A large percentage of bottling was performed by third parties back then, as I'm sure you know.
