I have been trying to work out my booze requirements too. I reckon I'm going to average between 4 and 6 pints a day so say 5! That's 70 bottles!!! A bottle of wine lasts me 2 days (so that's 7, call it 10) and I reckon a litre each of Whiskey and Gin. I also drink Pernod, Southern Comfort, and Seville Gin. 5 bottles of Port and of course 2 litres of Rum for the coffee.

I know that sounds a lot, but I will have to make it last two weeks. 

I think you need a tender for the liquid stores.

With that lot on board you'll be able to go through the side arches at Potter bridge! :default_rofl:

Flour from the Co-op, worth a try. My local Carlton Colville one had plenty during the week. 

I often , well before we were locked down use to use that Coop a lot.   A bit on the pricey side but at Christmas etc when the other stores were heaving I always felt the Coop was the better option.  Plus they have quality goods most of the time and at least you could easily get parked. 

At the moment I have a small amount of SR and P flour and have been grinding down porridge oats to make wholewheat flour for making cakes.    It makes perfectly good gluten free flour if you have a blender or the like to whiz it down to a fine powder.

Yes, Odd that, neither Red wine nor Port seem to effect the gout, not like creamer does.

Well thats it,   now where did I put that bottle of Port.   Cheers for that.  :default_winko:

If you were to consume the above over a 14 day period you would average over 24 units per day. Therefore you would be taking it onboard faster than it leaves your body and would require at least a complete lay-off of 48 hours or so before you could say you were sober.

I shall offer a prayer to both St Francis and St Augustine of Hippo for the safe passage of your liver through Potter Heigham.
