    Iodophor in homebrew

    I found iodophor/Videne on another forum and was told the dosage was 1.25ml and used it for years without any apparent problem (I think). I was also told to use 1 teaspoon of citric acid as I live in a hard water area (I think it lowers the ph level of the water and also when the colour from...

    Didn't the Cameron/Osbourne governmwnt borrow more money? There's nothing wrong with taxation and borrowing money and spending it creates stimulus and I'd rather money was borrowed and spent, creating jobs and generating wealth than money borrowed and wated in creating tax breaks for the rich...

    Elections.

    I completely agree with everything Darlacat says. One other point about the caricature of Boris Johnson as a loveable buffon is his name. Everyone, and I mean everyone including the media and a lot of the opposition calls him Boris. I don't think this has ever happened with a Prime Minister and...

    Elections.

    Corbyn was the right leader at the wrong time and unfortunately because he supported leaving the EU, but the party didn't, it was a complete disaster. As far as I'm aware, at least some 'old' Labour support for leavung the EU was around protection of jobs, but in the second decade of the 21st...

    What someone does with their money is irrelevant as long as they're earned it legally and paid their taxes as I'm pretty sure Corbyn would have. And by 'paid their taxes' I mean in full and not paying someone to look at how they can pay as little as possible using clever wheezes as undoubtedly...

    Where to buy Star San

    The worst thing about Starsan? So much contradictory information amd so little from Five Star about use as a no-rinse sanitiser. I emailed Five Star with a few questions about this a few weeks ago and haven't received a reply. Does anyone know if Charlie Talley still associated with the...

    English Independence

    Is it possible to claim independence from something you created? Surely you can only withdraw.

    Where to buy Star San

    From a couple of interviews with Charlie Talley I've listened to, the point of StarSan (other than not having to mix bleach, water and vinegar, which can be dangerous if not done correctly) is that it is also a detergent (hence the foam), so that if your cleaning isn't 100%, it will help to...

    Where to buy Star San

    According to Charlie Talley of manufacturer Five Star chemicals, at the correct concentration, bleach can be used as a no rinse sanitiser.

    Where to buy Star San

    I think I paid about £30 for just under a litte of StarSan. Using 1.6ml per litre of water (plus something to measure ph levels with) is even cheaper.

    What do we think about the whole independence thing in general?

    Well, if it happens, I for one will be laughing and throwing metaphorical chips at those English people who are incandescent with anger that those in Scotland or Wales dare to break up the Union, yet only a few years earlier voted for the UK to leave the EU.

    Where to buy Star San

    Can you cite your sources? Which ingredients? Phosphoric acid? If so, I'm sure Cocal Cola would love to know. They use LOADS! Or is it dodecylbenzenesulfonic acid which is found in toothpaste and many other personal care products? Also, you mentioned not being able to leave unbiased reviews...

    Polypins

    If it's a bag in a box, the bag will be thin, clear and the tap you push with your thumb and will be difficult to remove. These are not designed to be reused. Polypins I think only come in one size (aorund 36 pints) are made of thicker, opaque plastic, have a lever tap, the collar of which...

    Polypins

    Are you sure you have a polypin and not a bag in a box?
