Going into secondary today at a steady 1.01 (tad over 4%), sample was quite clear and tasty though sweeter than Sundew as its so young, I have high hopes for this brew, could be a cracker.

Picked mine up sunday too & will get it on this week. Can't wait.
Well, I have been waiting about 6 weeks for it to come in but you know what I mean.
I need more bottles though!

I have heard a lot of good things about the Woodfords kits. But the pricing kind of puts me off them at the moment. You will have to keep us posted and maybe I will end up changing my mind lol.

The Wherry is stunning critty and worth every penny. I'm no expert but when you bre a pint that tastes at least as good as the pub (I've had worse in some!) then youn know its a winner.

I did a Wherry as my filler easy kit for the bottles I got off a m8. Never expected much really!
I was suprised how good it is. After two weeks I had a taster and it was nice but after two months it's a cracker well worth the praise
I gave my m8 several bottles and he loved it!
After drinking in some shoddy ale houses over the years I'd say it better than most of the muck I've been served
