    Shocker! Tesco Change Their Mineral Water

    Went into my local Tesco Supermarket today, to stock up on mineral water for my brews. Now I have always known their own brand mineral water as Tesco Ashbeck English Natural Mineral Water. I always buy the six x 2 litre packs as they are slightly better value than the larger 5 litre bottles...

    What are you drinking tonight 2020.

    I am just sipping a pint (500ml actually) of FST London Pride. I bought a case of 12 bottles for £14 from my local Sainsburys yesterday as I thought that was a reasonably good deal. Just £1.16666 each!! :beer1:acheers.

    Apple juice...

    I have just bottled this today. It will now sit in the warm for two weeks to carbonate, followed by a further two weeks in the garage to condition at a cool temperature. Sorry, but I cannot answer your questions for at least a month...

    Apple juice...

    I thought it might well be the same! wink... I will be hopefully bottling tomorrow, as the airlock activity stopped several days ago, depending of course on the FG reading.

    What are you drinking tonight 2020.

    A glass of Coopers 86 Day Pilsner brewed with Coopers Brew Enhancer 3 plus 200g of demerara sugar. OG 1040. An ABV of 3.95% so a nice session lager. Very smooth and goes own well!

    Anyone recommend a wine bottle corker

    Excellent! I wasn't sure if they are all made by the same manufacturer? They certainly all look the same!

    Anyone recommend a wine bottle corker

    I have just ordered this from eBay for £15.50 including free postage. Didn't think that was too bad a price.

    Newbie wine maker

    Chippy; Thanks for the replies to my questions. Does SJW improve with age, like home brewed beer does? Realistically, how long will the SJW keep? Six months?

    Anyone recommend a wine bottle corker

    As it says, can anyone recommend a wine bottle corker? I am looking at a price range of £20 to £25. Are the three lever models that much better than the two lever. I have never used either so don't know. Any advice gratefully received.
