Geezah, what is that brew in the photo. Don't tell me that's a Coopers kit, with that kind of head retention?!?!

Brilliant, who'd have thought I'd find a curry cooking forum on a beer brewing forum!? Two of my passions at the same time, love it!
Next up - BrewUK Summer Ale?
Conditioning - Brupaks Old London Porter
Drinking - Brupaks Colne Valley Bitter
Drinking - St.Peter's Ruby Red Ale, very nice drop now that it's finally conditioned.
Finished - Woodfordes Wherry :(

Yes double thumbs up from me it's an excellent book! Some very dodgy looking fruit curries in there though that I think I'll be giving a miss! :D

I cannot recomend this Chinese Style curry base / recipe enough. It delivers a true take away style chinese curry.

I've joined up and am dribbling with the thought of curry.

Might have to suprise the wife and kids some time this week.

What an excellent site, thanks for sharing.
Just a shame we have a fridge full of food to get through first before I can try something.
Definitely going to sign up there.

Strange not what I was expecting to find when joining up here.

Cheers.
