The couple of PET bottles are nice and firm to the squeeze and perfectly clear already, will give them another couple of days in the warm cupboard then transfer to my under the stairs cupboard.

Will break a few out on Friday night, attempting to be good on school nights, managed it last week 😃

Yumeeeee, OK so I couldn't wait until the weekend and cracked one of these babies open tonight....

In all honesty, the closest to a Recorderlig kind of taste that I've made so far

very tasty, will make this one again, it's not going to last long

looks really good, two questions though.

1.has it cleared or is it cloudy?

2. that looks like a good carb, how much/what did you use to carbonate?
