Well I, for one, enjoyed it. The draymen were 21st century versions of Julian and Sandy bringing me fond memories of a vastly different world I once inhabited.
Thanks for the prompt and am already looking forward to the next episode.

Diabolical programme. Can a mainstream free to air channel not try a little bit harder than that?!

Agreed, it's very dumbed down! Interesting to see a commercial set up though and how they're run.
I didn't realise they boiled their wort in a pressure cooker so at least learnt something!
