Glad to see you have prioritised beer over laundry as it looks like nobody is getting to that washing machine. 
Is that the fancy automatic one you showed us?  Have you paired it with your phone?

What are you making?  Does the machine allow you to make something you couldn’t do before?  Another smokey porter?

Smokey porter will be on the rotation again soon as we've run out and we're sad because we liked it a lot

This was a 'Ghost Ship' clone in this picture
Next up, a 'Trappist'  patersbier style

It just gives me much more control - you can do all kinds of stages and steps now so you can really control the sugars and flavours.  Well that's the theory. I have to play and learn and see what I get!

Ghost ship clone has finished fermenting and onto conditioning.

Trappist'  patersbier is now in fermentation. 

I've got ingredients for a single hopped IPA or a 60 minute IPA. Hmmm.
Looking to make a Bitter or British style pale ale soon.  Hopefully buy off the pumpkins cheap (they went for £.01 and £.02 and even free after Halloween last year) and make a pumpkin beer.

Ghost ship clone is amazing, I must say.

Haven't had any time for making anything else, boo. But I have ingredients to the ready, which at this stage will probably be after Christmas.

What's ghost ship?  Is it brewed in a special way that takes advantage of your fancy beer making machine?

Oh sorry, it's a clone of the Adnams "Ghost Ship" beer.  Mine tastes better  :D
