Until I read the bit in brackets about swords, I was picturing neatly stacked long lines of stones, dividing green grassy hills into smaller paddocks. :lol:

Welcome aboard Twonky. May each brew be less twonky than the last :beer:

Yeah like that would be a great hobby.... however if I could get a few green grassy hills, last time I checked we didn't have many of those around :)

hi dinnerstick,

I'ld not call the utrechtse heuvelrug, mountainous!
But yes it is a nice area, regretfully I live in a the flevo polder, so no older forests and the highest mountains we have are speed bumps, and lots of them ;-)

So for now my hopes are vested in http://www.diebergkomter.nl/

I grew up in Devon south England, also no real mountains, but lots of lovely rolling hills..... and Cider ;-)
Not as complex as a good beer, but still...

:cheers:
Cheers

Greetings,

I told myself I wouldn't join another forum, yet here I am!

I'm located in Belgium and have been brewing for nearly 20 years. After reading through that really long BM thread on that other forum, I decided to bite the bullet and buy myself a 20L Braumeister for my 40th birthday. Some go for sports cars when the midlife crisis hits, I go for sports kettles. I only picked it up yesterday, so I haven't even had a chance to brew with it. I'm looking forward to it!

Cheers!
Elderberry
