    Wilkos to close 15 stores. :/

    Mine in Liverpool isn't shutting. As far as I can see it's junk store selling junk for people that need or want junk. As for high street homebrew kits or equipment. Their brews are crap as is the equipment. I have to travel 55 mins from where I live to see a decent homebrew store on a high...

    From some bit of their homebrewing range, these closures should be seen as a godsend. Some of their HB is god damned awful :C

    Fermentation and pressure barrels

    So, recently I tried an experiment of mine to see if I could capture the Co2 from a fermentation to a pb and hopefully find some reasonable results. So on day five of the fermentation of an extract beer. I dropped the contents of the fv into the pb. I can't say that it was overwhelmingly...

    Covid - Plan B & Omicron

    It's current form is no worse than a common cold. How about you fully understand the evidence as it stands rather than cling to the alarmist bs of the media. I have followed this virus since day one. I am sorry you lost friends. But the variables among this pandemic have been consistently...

    Covid - Plan B & Omicron

    Last week I wasn't pinged but warned by a friend that I'd had a beer with that he was covid positive. I isolated for a day then took a PCR the following day. I got my negative result last night. Based on the text of the negative test, they still imply you are infected when they go out of...

    Alternative to bitter.

    Buy some sprouts and ferment those, Clint probably can tell us how the recipe went ;)

    Pale crushed malt for Maris Otter

    There seems to be a running theme through this book. Was Pale Crushed Malt the Chic sorta thing of the time and the seventies was susceptible of lack of ideas / tech and forward thinking of the time? Everything in this book is pale crushed malt errrr

    Pale crushed malt for Maris Otter

    So, I've been re-reading Dave Line's book from 1977/79 copy of his recipes. And before I fire the hole on buying my own grains etc. Perhaps Ankou can answer me this best but feel free to have your say. It seems throughout this book, he favours Pale crushed malt above any other. Is there a...

    A message to Chippy

    Ok bud, so I hope the wine brew is going ok. So I started a Solomon Grundy Gold Cabernet sauvignon 9 days ago mate. I ran out of beer and thought, oh sod it. Let's have a taster and see what we have. Heh, umm this is a seven day wine right?? Well apparently not. The temps have been...

    So I am not persuaded

    I already have one, but it's as useful as a chocolate kettle without the rest of the gubbins I need to make it work. Works out cheaper just to buy a whole bundle with the new keg ;)

    So I am not persuaded

    So I went and bought the Klarstein fullhorn from Klarstein at £139.99. Now I may have to buy a new grain basket as I think my one may be too large. The price of the Klarstein will allow me to buy a corny keg with a gas regulator etc \o/

    No, but he did try and sell me one of your curries. I automatically assumed this man to be an imposter. The Clint curry is known to be top secret. Such a charlatan xD
