For the sake of a quid, throw a wilkos nottingham ale yeast in and keep it warm

I definitely agree with giving this a month or longer. I am just finishing my final bottle of this after a good few months and it is a very nice pint. Even though I've since moved on to extract and got everything ready for my first bbiab, I will do this kit again.

I've just added a brew day thread about how I got on with that biab.

As for the Wherry, I should mention that a few weeks ago I gave a friend at work a bottle of this along with a bottle of extract Sarah Hughes Dark Ruby Mild which I think is probably the best brew I have done so far. My colleague actually slightly preferred the Wherry.

Hi All
Well I have bottled half my 2012 bbe Werry - I got it going by giving it a stir and adding a dose of brewing sugar and sticking it on a tray heater - that worked - It then stopped again so I added more sugar off it went again. It dropped to 1010 so I have primed it and bottled it. The priming sugar certainly set it off again. So does it stick because it is light on fermentable sugars? For a BBE 2012 kit it tastes ok and its been in the FV for 5 weeks needs to clear now and then I can drink the dammed stuff!

It could stall for a number of reasons...low temps ,dead yeast,not enough yeast..my John bull ipa stalled and I did the same..stirred it added a bit more sugar and heated it up..I settled for 1014 as I'd made it up with malt extract but only primed with around 50g on advice on kegging incase it started again. It's been kegged about 6 weeks and is very nice now. ..as I am about to confirm!

Cheers

Clint

Never thought wilkos would bump this kit up past the twenty quid mark. In fact looking at a few others I've noticed u can get cheaper at other brew stores. If u can get to them up avoid the postage.
I guess they're noticing an increase in sales. Shame
