Re: question to Tony
- Well, when you put it that way it makes sense to keep it as a work
in progress... either way it is much appreciated. + I guess I should
thank Jack and Wal too .!

> Yeah, but I'm not too fussed on it. Keeping it electronic means
get pointed out to me. In addition, so much of the material there
has come from so many different contributers - eg I'd need Wal to
write the flavouring & liqueurs chapters, and Jack to do the grain
based washes. It would be a lie to put just my name to it.

> It would also need a serious re-write, to tidy up much of the
section to another (and even within sections). I've been building
up the site for the last 5 years or so now, basically one paragraph
at a time, as i see wee snippets of information. Not all it agrees -
I usually find something out of place when i sit down and read it
all. Some of the early stuff is missleading or wrong and needs
revising. In other sections, I deliberately present opposing views
on how to achieve a results, just to stress that there are many ways
of doing stuff, none of which is necessarily the "right and only"
way. I should take the discipline to do this tidy-up anyhow, but I
just dont have the time (travelling frequently for work, busy with
two young kids at home) to sit down and re-do it all. Guess I
should just start, one chapter at a time, eh ?
