    As an aside - I did end up using the fuggles. I did a "light" dry hop & just left them in for a
    day. Have just cracked open the first taster & it's turned out really well :) Next time, I'll
    probably d...

    I spent most of last Saturday's visit to the pub trying to explain to MrsK that I needed to
    build up a stock of homebrew... I still don't think she's convinced. She did ask for some wine

    I just use a big sponge strapped to the outside (it's actually an old heart rate monitor strap

    work prett...

    This week I was going to have my first go at dry hopping. Just a 20g tea bag of fuggles into a

    quantity of sugar in...

  • Posted in thread: First brew done!! Few questions though! on 22-08-2017 at 08:27 AM
    Looks like a good one :) I'm very new to this but from my first couple of attempts, the best

    batch fermenti...

    My fourth brew is now on the go, a straight forward Coopers IPA Brew A. By mistake I've ended
    up with mixed DME (one light & one medium) but have just thought "whatever" & gone for it. Made
